Synths + Pedals: Vintage Boss DSD-3 & RV-3 as delay/Reverb w/ analogue MiniMod Eurorack synth

video upload by DreamsOfWires

"Trying out 2 80’s/90’s Boss guitar pedals on simple synth notes using the 3-VCO MiniMod voice from AJH Synth for some fat Minimoog sound. This video was mainly to hear what the delay of the DSD-3 sounds like, but I thought I’d add the RV-3 on the end of the signal for some reverb too, to keep it all-guitar pedal. No post-processing, just the raw output of the pedals.
The 1987 Boss DSD-3 is apparently internally identical to the 1985 DSD-2, and shares the ‘long chip’ of the rack-mount SDE-3000. Here I’m just using it as a delay effect, but I’ll experiment with the sampling function in a future video. Excuse the typo in the on-screen titles - this was an 80's pedal, not 90's.
The 1994 Boss RV-3 however is quite a lot different from the 1987 RV-2 - a later and more advanced processor, so it’s bound to sound a little more modern, although it does seem to have that vintage digital metallic quality to the reverb tails sometimes, at least to my failing ears.
You buy these pedals for their character, not their realism, but for me they’re also pedals I wanted when I was a broke teenage guitarist back in the day, so there’s nostalgia and curiosity in them too.
The Synth: The MiniMod is a Eurorack modular synth system, accurately based on the vintage circuitry of the original R.A. Moog Minimoog. It has that huge, rich, warm sound, but with the open architecture/flexibility that modular offers.
