I have a Digitech Bass Multi-Chorus but have not experienced what you are describing here so I can't say. Sorry. :(

I saw a very popular bassist using one with the name covered with gaffers tape since he was endorsing another brand of effects pedals at the time. He said he does multi-voice chorusing in the studio with expensive gear and that the Digitech did a good approximation of that effect, thus the pedal on his board. [smilie=cool-smiley-031.gif]

Good luck remeding your issue.

i bought one of those 1-spot 9v power adaptors and that eliminated the issue...

Cool! My pedalboard is powered with a 1SPOT power source. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Yup, had an old Morley phaser that did the same thing when the batteries went low.

Links: Yanno, you live a very short time and then you spend a very long time dead so eat great food, love extra hard, hold on for the ride, and play some bass along the way.

All of the Digitech X-Series pedals consume batteries at a tremendous rate. Since the chorus pedal in question here was bought used, the box may not have contained the note explaining this and strongly recommending the HPRO PS200R power supply. When the battery drains even slightly, the X-Series pedals can do some very strange things. The Digitech Hardwire pedals are better with battery life, have true bypass, and the Chorus, Delay, Reverb, and Tremolo models work very well with a bass.
