EarthQuaker Devices Palisades Overdrive Pedal
EQD really went to town on this one. It's a Tube Screamer style mid-boost drive, but with a huge amount of functionality and different options; it could well replace whole sections of your board... super handy.

Normal/Bright: Normal is a warm full tone, Bright is livelier tone with more chime.
Buffer: Turns the input buffer on or off. ON is a tighter and brighter tone while OFF is a warmer tone with more sag. The buffer is part of the drive circuit & is only available when the Palisades is activated.
Bandwidth: This sets the overall tone and gain structure of the Palisades. 1 is the thinnest setting with the least amount of gain and 5 is the fattest setting with the heaviest gain. Everything else is in between. This control has a major effect on all the settings of the Palisades, especially the gain and voice controls.
Voice: This sets the nature of the Palisades distortion by changing the clipping diodes.
1- No diodes: The most open and least distorted.
2- LED clipping: light clipping with a lot of volume.
3- Mosfet clipping: light gain OD with great harmonics.
4- Asymmetrical Silicon clipping: Tighter light gain OD closest to stock 808.
5- Symmetrical silicon clipping: tighter distorted tone.
6- Schottky Diode clipping: Looser fuzzy tone.
