Open Discussion / Re: Aion will have 25 new projects in 2018
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:52:35 PM »
I'm planning on this one coming out this fall, before or around Thanksgiving.

Most excellent!  Way back in the late 70's, I owned a brand new Deluxe BMP.  So I'm really excited
about building a clone.   The BMP side is relatively easy.  I haven't been able to clone the Soul Preacher side.
By most standards, it's an awful compressor.  Noisy and super squishy.  The opposite of transparent.
But since I'm familiar with the sound, I like it.  :)

Aion, any updates on the Deluxe BMP?

FWIW, I've never had an issue with a Madbean board.  And I've built many of them.

Yep, what he said. That's the loop wiring so signal back and forward right over the top of the board. The chances of clock noise is very high there, so we didn't take any chances. The in and outs are routed well away from the boards so we didn't bother there.

Makes perfect sense.  That's an excellent job with the shielded wire.  I tend to avoid it unless really needed.
For me, it's a PITA.

Looks nice.  Is it necessary to use shielded wire for this build?

I'll try do a demo, but it would be my kid playing, and he only ever uses pedals with all the knobs turned to 11.   ;)

Hilarious!   :D

Those faceplates are nice!

I ordered a few parts early Wednesday morning (1am) and the parts aren't
going to be here until monday or tuesday.  I don't know if the holiday screwed things up
or what.  By the time I get the parts, it will be close to a week. 

Arrow! How could you?!?  :D

General Questions / Re: BLMS how has PCB pots
« on: July 04, 2018, 11:27:05 PM »
Using some of the BLMS pots.  They have a very good feel. Not as stiff as tayda's.  No pin to cut off either.
They don't come with pot condoms, so I've got some electrical tape on the back.

That looks great!  I like those different color aluminum knobs.  Where did you get them?

That's pretty neat.  What do armidillo's eat?  plants and bugs?

90+% insect based, supplemented with the occasional egg, lizard, frog, or baby mouse if they happen across them. Very little vegetable matter.

....Not entirely sure how this thread got side tracked into Armadillo Facts, but ok!

Awesome.  Do they bite? Or are they kind of tame due to their armor?  I imagine they can't run very fast.

( this is my final armadillo question so the thread will get back to normal )  :)

Very nice.  I like the pink floyd graphics.  That's one large pedal.
