Thanks, I've actually been tweaking with those values. I'll try the 33ks, too. It's getting closer....I have a few final ideas to try out today. I'm also comparing voltages to the AquaPuss on the compander, and just generally audio probing both circuits.
Interestingly, I was reading a little review by Culturejam yesterday complaining about the repeats on his EHX Memory Boy yesterday. Those use four 3208s. They are so cheap I might pick one up just as a reference point to improve the DirtBag.
I've got a Memory Toy, I think the repeats are fine! Then again I think culturejams admitted now he just doesn't like BBD Delay. Anyway, could be a good idea to grab one.
22/24k for R11 & 12 is fine, relatively, pin 7 is biased to around 7V on a normal Memory man (from the voltages I saw) so that's half the 15V supply, 22 or 24k in R11 & 12 got Lace Sensor 4.5Vish when I suggested he try it.
But on the other output of the Compander, on the Memory Man voltages I saw it was a lot lower than half supply (where it would normally be) so 33k should lower it down below half supply, as once again Lace Sensor got 4.5Vish when I told him to use 24k for R42.
