Open Discussion / Splattering edge of speaker exploding Hendrix sound.
« Last post by blearyeyes on January 18, 2018, 06:06:19 PM »
Where should I start? I have a couple of fuzz face circuits but Iím chasing a particular sound.  That blooming gating splattered sound. Voltage starved? Particular trannies? Any input ?

I've had a hankering for stoner/space rock for a while now and I stumbled across the Stoned Meadow of Doom channel that showcases a bunch of bands that you might never hear of. Some great stuff on this channel!

The Stoned Meadow channel is always on an open tab for me. What else would I listen to while building a new fuzz?

I love that channel! I've found more new bands there than anywhere else in the last year. Top 5:

The Machine
Colourhaze
Ecstatic Vision
Asteroid
Valley of the Sun

Also if you haven't heard of the Desert Sessions check them out. Now. Particularly the Desert Sessions Vol. 1 & 2. Its a side project from Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age where he just got all his buddies together and they recorded. Vol. 1 & 2 were recorded by locking the group in a studio for 3 straight days under heavy psilocybin influence. Easily in my top 15 albums of all time. If you like driving rock, check it. You'll thank me later.

General Questions / Re: Digital Volume Control Pedal

Another way to do it: micro-controller for optical control. Take an audio snippet of an optical tremolo, let the controller change the brightness of an LED/LDR combo. One switch makes it get brighter, the other switch get dimmer. Of course, you have to write some code for that!

Would actually be a neat project.

There is an EXH volume dip passive that would
work. Simple.

VFE Projects / Re: Tractor Beam distorted?
« Last post by madbean on January 18, 2018, 05:33:01 PM »
One common cause of distortion can be incorrect VB rail voltages. I'd start by comparing the build voltages in the docs. If those look good the next step would be audio probing to see where the distortion is introduced.

I have spent the beginning of 2018 starting to explore synth sound type pedals.  Thanks for for introducing this to me! 

Amazing build too.  It looks quite intimidating.

VFE Projects / Tractor Beam distorted?
« Last post by greenskull on January 18, 2018, 05:18:22 PM »
I just finished up the Tractor Beam phaser and all controls work, but distorts at all settings. I know that getting rid of the feedback resistor helps the Phase 90 clean up, but turning the feedback knob all the way down doesn't help the Tractor Beam. Anybody else experiencing this?
