How about something like a tape delay with the fV-1?

Open Discussion / Buffer before Ge pedals?? RM is crazy
« on: November 16, 2017, 07:28:20 AM »
Hi guys. I have 3 Ge pedals: ToneBender mk3, FuzzFace, Rangemaster.
Every time they get a pedal in front of them, they get crazy! TB and FF are fine, I like them this way; but the RM is a mess! It sounds like a cooked wah and with a buffer before becomes a treble nightmare.
Why is that? What can i do about it? Should i embrace this and build a buffer inside, therefore adjusting LP and HI pass filters?

Cool. Thanks MB! I settled for 4.7nf, it's good enough now. I found these mn3209 at a good price so i took them, the flanger sounds good, tighter i would say.

Right. I forgot to say that i have the mn3209, without the 4049n. I removed the 680pf cap because i read that it wasn't needed. Do i need to put it back in place?

Hi guys. These days my current lover is more and more often on my board. I feel it is too bright though, What can i do? thanks guys

Open Discussion / Switching PS are noisier?
« on: October 26, 2017, 02:48:14 AM »
Hi guys. I'm looking for a new power supply for my pedalboard.
I see there are 2 types of PS: regulated and switching. It seems to me that switching types are smaller but noisier, do your experience confirm this theory?

Just a few fuzzes and overdrives, + wah, phase 90, electric mistress, small clone.
I tried the superfuzz alone and i had a fixed-pitch modulating tone. With my old Boss PS everything was dead quiet.

General Questions / Noisy Power supply. What to do?
« on: September 26, 2017, 06:11:19 PM »
Hi guys. My pedalboard is almost finished, so i bought a new 9v power supply. I thought it was good considering the price, but actually it is so noisy that is almost unusable.
What can i do? What about a box with a regulator and some filtering, would that do anything?

Hi guys. I have this Freekout (Frequency Analyzer), that i like somehow, but it's a pain in the ass on my pedalboard because of the 18v power supply. Can it be powered with 9v? i mean, 18v headroom instead of 30v, is that i problem? Does the ICL8038 need 15v to work correctly?

I basically solved the problem changing the 2n5457. I chose 2 with a voltage of -1 and everything is rounder. The bias is a bitch though, extremely narrow point to get the right sound.

Hi Guys. I built a Smoothie (phase 45) and it works. i matched the 2 2n5457 (around -1,2. extremely close pair),
but the sound i get is asymmetrical. I mean that half of the sweep is like regular, the other is faster:
It speeds up lightly, it peaks, and then back. I don't understand what is happening.
Is it a matter of matching? wrong voltage? All the resistors are fine and the correct values.
The bias does a lot, it goes from Univibe-like to a very light phaser just a bit under half.

Thanks for the help!

General Questions / Total Recall DMM feedback usability questions
« on: November 19, 2016, 08:15:01 AM »
Hi guys. I built a Total Recall DMM, and it sounds good.
I still have troubles with biasing, but i think i'm getting there.
I have a few questions though:
1) my feedback is unusable over half. is this normal? what can i do to fix this thing?
2) when i add modulation, like over 1/4, the feedback knob reduces his usability to 1/3, then it goes straight into oscillation.

are these behaviors the normal thing?
Thanks guys

hi guys. my Panasonic SMF stash is almost over, and i need some capacitors like them. i am placing an order at Mouser in the next days, do you have a suggestion for a similar line of capacitors? i need something like those, with long legs that i can bend.
Thanks guys
 (also, do you have a link?)

Hi guys. i'm build an electric mistress (current lover) and i wanted to try a mn3209 instead of the mn3007.
what should i do? can the mn3209 take the 9v with no problem, or should i limit it to 8.2v (via zener diode)?
i was thinking about removing the 4049 buffer. do i have to do anything else?
what about the 680pf cap?
