Hey guys,
I picked up a couple of Ibanez DM2000's. The problem is that i get no output from either one of them. I'm beginning to think i'm doing something wrong. Does anyone have any experience with these units? I would think its as simple as guitar--> input, output---> amp. When i do this i get a clean signal path, no delay. When i hit the bypass on the 2000, it cuts off. I can't think of 2 seperate delays doing the same thing. Is it something i'm doing?

A bit obvious perhaps, but it sounds like what happens when I've got the input and output reversed on a pedal.

or the unit needs a footswitch you haven't plugged in?

I think you hit the nail on the head SS. The problem is i can't find a footpedal anywhere for this. Maybe i'll get on the ibanez forum tonight. TS- I tried reversing input/output so it isn't that. I think its probably a footpedal. :cry:

hmmm, it's the proprietary ibanez one, huh?!
i see on ebay no footswitches.
maybe adjust your wet/dry mix??
