The DMC-3XL is the newest product from Disaster Area Amplifiers. It features the same modes and control as the popular DMC-3 pedal but with a built-in expression roller designed to get the most out of your Strymon Timeline pedal. The expression roller is assignable to either the Timeline’s native “expression” parameter or Looper Level. The DMC-3XL allows looper control including Record, Play, Stop, Undo, and Redo, as well as switching looper pre / post, looper half speed and reverse. The DMC-3XL can change banks or programs on the Timeline and can remotely bypass the delay or engage the infinite repeats. The DMC-3XL is priced at $169.99 plus shipping and is available in a range of optional colours at extra cost. The current wait time for the DMC-3XL is 3-4 weeks from receipt of order.
Set for release next week, the DMC-3 version 2.0 firmware adds the most requested features from the new Strymon Timeline firmware version including undo / redo, looper level, and overall bypass. Download details and more demos to come.
I’ve gotten a whole lot of emails regarding the new Strymon Timeline firmware, the DMC-3XL, updates to DMC firmware, etc. so instead of spending ten hours emailing everyone separately I’m going to post the info here.
Strymon Firmware: Strymon has released a brand new version of the Timeline firmware which addresses a lot of issues and customer requests. It allows a lot more control over MIDI, which is good for DMC users.
DMC Firmware Updates:
New features which the DMC series will be supporting soon:
Undo / Redo
Looper Level Control
Changes to the DMC series firmware are in the works over the next couple of weeks. The DMC-3 will be updated first, followed by the DMC-4 and DMC-6. The release will be posted here and on Facebook, and we’ll probably mention it over at The Gear Page as well.
DMC-3XL: This is a hot one. The DMC-3XL is a new version of the DMC-3 in a slightly bigger box. This is good because those DMC-3 boxes are TIGHT! There’s also room for an expression roller or 1/4″ jack for an external expression pedal. When ordering, you’ll be able to specify whether you want the roller or the jack, and if you get the roller you can position it on either side of the pedal. In fact, the pedal comes drilled for the roller on either side and you can move it yourself with just simple hand-tools. The expression roller / pedal will control either looper level, mix, or feedback / repeats. The other buttons on the pedal work the same way as the regular DMC-3 and it will support Undo / Redo, overall bypass, or infinite repeats as well.
Pricing will be $169.99 plus shipping, and we’ll be posting pictures and video demos in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for your continued support and interest. Customer requests are what make these products work, and we know it.
