Title: LoopCore
Post by: GrindCustoms on March 09, 2015, 02:10:04 AM
Yo! As i'm trying to get through the purposed built pedals for my MarkIV setup, i finished what is going to be the core of my FXLoop.

It starts with a MasterBypass provided by 1776's Relay system followed by a loop into Madbean's ZPDD Delay into a loop into 1776's RaDD DLX Reverb into a loop and then Madbean's 2010 Bloviator/SonicMaximizer that was etched by Guitarmaggedon couple years ago that i salvaged from another multi into another loop and then the output...

The amount of jack loop is almost ridiculous but this way i can break the whole unit in blocks and keep the master bypass for the whole loop effect chain... ...and also because building other multis to fill the loops is required.

My brain is spinning! I see jacks and loops and...oh hell. This is fantastic. I could never think of doing something this cool. Hats off to you Rej. Just amazing really.

Thanks guys! Will be even more fun once all the pieces of the puzzle are assembled :)

Thanks, yep i did the enclosure myself, don't know who could have done it anyway, so i prepared 2 of those yesterday...

And will fit perfectly with the Pre-AmpInput core multi that i did previously :D

Thanks Josh, yeah i used switchcraft type enclosed jacks, i also remove the tabs that i don't use to keep the whole thing cleaner.

In the pic below, it can be seen that i had to do some machining to the middle screw post to be able to fit the jacks, though.... i had'nt of the added height of the DualGang pot of the RaDD... so for the loop between Delay and Verb it's the Output that is switching instead of the normaly used input. Idea was that it breaks the chain when i plug something into both jacks and that there's continuity when nothing, i still won.... hehe :)

Cool technique on the enclosures. Either you dragged them behind a car or you took a dremel cut-off wheel to the surfaces  :)

Thanks guys! :)

Dremel all the way, i've used my Dremel more at doing those finishes in the couple past years than anything else.  ;D

Much thanks guys, this unit is really giving me the results i was expecting, much flexibility in the setup option ZPDD is a delay everyone should built for that always on delay sound when needed.
I'm a huge fan of the Ibby AD9 and Maxon AD999 for those purpose and this delay does that same job i usually use those for in an almost equal manner.. might be a bit less granular or dark... but the precision of the repeat and width gained in the overall sound is right up in my favored flavors.

I don't even understand what's happening, but I know it's awesome.  ;D

It does it all ;)
