According to that website hes also pretty close to where interfax was. Perhaps there is more to the connection than we know. He could be related or an old employee.

Hmm it looks like he picked up the trademark for the name when it lapsed.. maybe.

https://www.trademarkia.com/harmonic-percolator-78185820.html

Im going to continue digging, this is fun. lol

I'm not trademark expert, but that does indeed appear to be legit. And in that case, if he doesn't aggressively defend the trademark, he could lose the registration.

On the other hand, clearly describing a product as a clone of a Percolator should be sufficient to remove possible consumer confusion (like how store-brand acetaminophen labelling says "compare to the active ingredient in Tylenol") , and in my non-lawyer opinion this guy is over-reaching. Maybe he's ignorant or maybe he's a colossal cock-end. There's no telling.

Another vote for the total recall.  It's got the mojo.  I'm not even exactly sure what the mojo is, but whatever it is, it's got it.

For quite a long time I used a colour laser printer. I got the printer cheap as I think it was end of line, it was a Samsung (although I can't remember the model number). I used to powder coat an enclosure, put put the decal on, then when it had fully dried I then did a powder coat clear coat on top of it. Where the decal was put over the holes it disappeared with the heat from the oven, and the results were really good. never did use a spray can of clear lacquer over the top of them but from what I've seen on the internet they give good results as well.

Feedback3 - 25k trimpot 1 - 25k trimpot 2 - momentary - Feedback 2

Dial in the trimpot for the amount of oscillation you want. The feedback has to be above 0, though.

Open Discussion / Re: Any Arduino ninjas out there...?
« Last post by orbitbot on May 20, 2018, 08:56:22 AM »
I've been reading up on the subject for a while, but a lot of my projects and ideas are in different stages of WIP, so take the following with the appropriate disclaimer.

For more complex audio projects, unfortunately the basic arduinos, teensys and the like don't do too well for signal processing, the main problem is that their analog-to-digital (ADC) and digital-to-audio (DAC) converters are not fast/precise enough to achieve reasonable fidelity. As such, they work better for control or generative purposes, ie. oscillators or lo-fi synths. This includes the ESPs, since even if they're faster the ADCs and DACs are still not good enough.

There are separate chips, audio codecs (combination of DAC and ADC) that have the features required for signal processing, which can be found in separate projects;

Teensy's have a separate Audio board ( https://www.pjrc.com/store/teensy3_audio.html ) and a guitar-oriented board in https://www.tindie.com/products/Blackaddr/arduino-teensy-guitar-audio-shield/ . For arduino there's a few music-oriented boards around, but nothing guitar-specific as such as far as I'm aware. Though you can use arduino environment to program the teensy as well, so arguably the previous ones are kind of the same if you don't look too closely  ;)

Then expanding the horizon a bit, you can go on to raspberry pis etc with their own audio stuff, but at that point there's either different audio processing environments to consider or more system issues to consider since the RPIs are running a full keyboard, mouse and monitor operating system (if you wish).

I have a bunch of stuff like this that I'm slowly working on, unfortunately hindered by a lack of time/energy and reliable electronics skills...
