Perfect distortion across your guitar’s entire range
What is it?
The Boss DA-2 Adaptive Distortion compact pedal gives you consistent, punchy distortion right across your guitar’s range. It does this with a new technology called MDP (or Multi-Dimensional Processing).
How does it work?
The MDP technology in the DA-2 works by analysing audio signals using a variety of factors (or dimensions) and then applying different effect levels to each stage. The end result is a bold, new sound with a previously unattainable range of expression and dynamic response.
So unlike standard distortion pedals that process the entire guitar signal with a single effect, the DA-2 adapts the sound in real time to create the ideal tone for every register.
But you don’t need to worry too much about how it works, and you definitely don’t need yet another acronym in your life, so just listen to how it sounds and what it can do for your music – which is where it gets really exciting.
What’s good about it?
The Boss DA-2 Adaptive Distortion compact pedal gives you consistent, punchy distortion right across your guitar’s range. It does this with a new technology called MDP (or Multi-Dimensional Processing). You’ll notice that the DA-2’s distortion is highly responsive to your playing style, and you’ll hear every note even when playing multiple notes simultaneously. It’s kind of like the cleanest distortion you’ve ever heard, if that makes sense? (We did say it was multi-dimensional).
As always, it’s far easier to actually hear something rather than just reading about it, so check out the video below and trust your ears.
