Boss DM-101 Delay Machine Stereo Analog Delay Pedal

Meet the ultimate analog delay pedal with 12 unique modes, stereo operation, and advanced modern features.

Classic sound meets modern power with the DM-101 Delay Machine, the ultimate analog delay. Driven by eight BBDs under smart CPU control, this inspiring pedal delivers 12 unique modes, stereo operation, and a wide array of tonal colors, all while maintaining 100 percent analog signal processing throughout. And with 127 user memories, tap tempo, carryover, MIDI, and more, the DM-101 brings you the features and versatility of an advanced digital pedal — but with the vibrant, characterful sound that’s only possible with authentic analog BBD circuitry.

Analog Delay for the 21st Century

Analog delays based around BBD (bucket-brigade device) microchips emerged in the 1970s as a compact and cost-effective alternative to the standard tape delays of the era. Their warm, saturated, and highly musical sound established a distinctive style of delay that remains favored by many musicians and audio engineers. Leveraging modern CPU control, the DM-101 supercharges this classic effect with enhanced capabilities for today’s music makers.

Next-Level Performance with BOSS Innovation

The DM-101 takes the analog delay where it’s never gone before, providing access to cleaner sounds and extended delay times alongside traditional tones. To achieve this versatility, we used eight 2048-stage BBDs instead of the more common 4096-stage BBD. By finely tuning the behavior of these smaller BBDs with targeted CPU control, we can realize a far greater range of sound while retaining all the desirable analog characteristics that players love about their favorite BBD stomps.

Sounds from Vintage to Modern

The DM-101 flows effortlessly between gritty vintage echoes and modern analog delay tones with extended high-frequency clarity. Multiple internal circuit elements are switched to define each of the 12 modes, including the number of active BBDs and their connection order, low-pass filter settings, and clocking rates. Twisting the Variation knob cycles through parameters unique to the different modes. And you can always drive delays into saturated self-oscillation by cranking the Intensity knob.

Stereo Delays with True Analog Warmth

A major benefit of the DM-101’s CPU control is the ability to realize sophisticated stereo sounds not available with other BBD analog delays. For example, Pan mode routes each BBD and its feedback loop to alternate points in the stereo field, while Dual Mod shifts the modulation phase for each output to generate a wide, spacious delay effect. Six of the 12 modes support stereo operation, providing everything from short reverb-like sounds andexpansive modulated delays to pattern delays for intense rhythmic effects.
