The Dude is J. Rockett Audio Design's take on the legendary Dumble Overdrive Special. From Robben Ford to Larry Carlton to scorching gain, it is all there. The Dude v2 has a less aggressive volume control, new knobs that are easier to read and a noiseless foot switching system.
Level: The Level control introduces clean boost and can be used independent of the Ratio control
Ratio: The Ratio control introduces the ratio of gain vs boost. You can achieve the classic ODS sounds very easily but it all depends on your guitar, pickups and amp as to where the sweet spot is. Start blending in the gain control and it will simultaneously reduce clean volume and introduce gain. Somewhere in the middle is the sweet spot or mix of the two, please experiment.
Treble: Turn to the right to increase treble, to the left to decrease treble
Deep: The Deep control varies the level of midrange prominence. Turn to the left and it will be scooped in the midrange with more emphasis on treble and bass. Turn the Deep control to the right and it will introduce a thick, low midrange. Once you achieve your desired tone on the deep control, adjust the treble to taste for clarity.
