My Retrograde build came out great but I've noticed that when I switch the octave on, there's a noticeable volume drop. Is there a way to balance the volume between octave on and off? Thanks.

I have a few moogerfooger pedals - they are built like a tank.  It sucks how big they are, but they turn out a ridiculous product.

Itís too bad that they stopped making Moogerfoogers recently. They are all incredible sounding pedals. I have the Ring Mod and it has by far the best tremolo sound Iíve ever used.

Moog is great and all, but being able to play chords makes an amazing difference over the typical squeaks and squeals of most monosynths.

All of a sudden, the world is like a Tom Clancy novel...Russians get busted for trying to hack the OPCW in The Hague (my back yard basically), the head of interpol goes missing and Saoudis supposedly sent a 15 man hit squad after a journalist...

I'm seriously entertaining the possibility that this sort of thing has been going on since, say, the Romans and Egyptians but all of a sudden it's really out there in the open and it feels freaky and uneasy.

Tech Help - Etcher's Paradise / Q-vibe
« Last post by DLW on Today at 04:03:45 PM »
I having trouble getting a vibe effect from my etched and assembled board. I followed the build doc without any deviations. The charge pump kicks out 18V. The board passes sound when hooked to my test rig. The lamp lights up fine and when I rotate the gain trimmer back and forth it changes the brightness of the lamp. Changing the lamp brightness also dampens the sound, which is how I think the vibe effect is done.

The weird thing is for a few seconds when voltage is first applied to the circuit, the lamp "vibes". However, the lamp eventually "locks up". I have R16 and R17 socketed, as suggested in the build doc. I tried values from 1k8 to 4k7, but that doesn't seem to help at all.

Does anyone have any experience with this circuit that could shed light on the problem?

The suspense is killing me!!


Me too!  Can't wait to try these out.

I was thinking abut buying a Pickit2 in anticipation of getting one of these projects.  There are several on Amazon, does anyone know if they are all the same?  If not, can someone provide a link to a reliable version?

So, my first job in the medical field was as a Surgical Technologist. Those are the folks responsible for passing instruments, sterilizing them, maintaining sterile fields, etc.
That is exactly what I instantly thought of when I saw that tray of tools!  I fully expected to see a scalpel or hemostat mixed in (looks like you may actually have some of those  ;D).
Yup, scalpel up top w/ lots of fresh blades, very helpful.

Down below, hemostats, scissors and needle holders.

Itís just what Iím familiar with. No need to re-invent the wheel.
