MANDROID-what value is the pot in the EXP-mod/!/?
« on: June 29, 2018, 03:43:27 PM »
Hullo, Beans and Bean-ettes!

Got the most fab Mandroid circuit up n going and have a nice Trapazoid Hammond box of the larger variety to put it in. I have a super cool, 1960s chrome and grey-silver hammer-tone Kay volume pedal shell that will do nicely. (My sweet wife gave it to me a few Christmases back.)
To the  question:

What is the correct pot value to use in the mod? audio or linear taper/log?

Cheers and much thanks!

A bit of a misunderstanding - there is no expression mod for the Mandroid. There is an external trigger option you could use in place of the "Splode" control but the idea was for maybe an LFO or capacitive touch interface, not a pot (in fact, connecting a pot would do nothing).

If you want to use an expression pedal type control with the Mandroid, then I would use it in place of the WARP control instead (same pot value). That might actually be quite cool.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

OK thanks Brian, I may do that!
(PS you may want to note on the build docs that the jumpers must be connected as shown in the docs on page 9,or the splode switch will not work.)
