Title: I'll say this for 2019...
Post by: madbean on November 13, 2019, 07:40:27 PM
...I cannot say I didn't put forth the effort, even if I don't finish all this before 2020!

There's some interesting names in the overdrive section...
I think it would be fun to see who could make up the best list of names that could plausibly be madbean pedal names.

Here's a few, off the top of my head:

Pokerhead
Tinklepuss
FarthingA
Warthog Stick
Slimshoe
Skunk Patrol
Thistle Feast
Rock Troll
Amblemush
Drop Lozenge

Brian, feel free to use any of these if they strike your fancy.  ;)

Just for fun (I'll really try to stop wasting everyone's bandwidth with my nonsense after this, I swear  ;D), I gave the first 30 project names from the MBP store to an artificial neural network and asked it to extrapolate.  Here are some AI-generated MBP pedal names:
Spice Gator
Stupidly Funky
Puffball
Bartender
Stinky Jr.
Krampus
Froggy Bear
E-G-F
Bongzilla
Dieselboy
Dodgeball
Lagoon
Mouthfull of Crap
Fleshwad
Poppa Fart
Wolffy Jr.
Hobgoblin Deluxe
Sticky Bee

Now that I know his filing organization system I can extrapolate his wisdom and steal his skill.

I basically stole the idea from this researcher's blog:

If you want to give it a try:

I have to warn you that this toy is very addictive though.  ;D

I will have one Warthog Stick and a Bongzilla, please..

Seriously though, MPB has made this hobby SO great- the awesome build reports are second to none, overflowing with explanations and suggestions and mods, the PCB's are well laid out and very nice to work with, and these forums fill in the gaps, answering my stupid questions and supplying us all with endless inspiration, it's all quite heroic.

Bongzilla is already a band name fyi

Haha, this is great.

I think next year Brian might have to make a spice gator, puffball, or a hobgoblin deluxe.

Yeah, it's hard to avoid some cross-over these days.  I'm pretty sure Fleshwad is already a Pokemon too.

Brian, you need an insane-fuzz board called "Mildly Overstated".

Those were the exact three that stuck out to me. I think SpiceGator is a f/n righteous name. And, anything with Hobgoblin in it. Or, maybe a Salty Hobgobligator.

Actually, I can think of exactly what a Hobgobligator effect would be: randomized slicer/chop tremolo with some 8-bit crush.

Seriously impressive list you've got there Brian. You surely have been busy.
I'd like to take the opportunity to express my thanks for what you do here. The projects are cleanly layouted, easy to build, well documented and very diverse. Put this in combination with the forum and community built around it you've created something that truely sticks out. Thank you!


Also, I love the AI created names and I'm quite impressed how well the fit the scheme/vibe of the input.

Wow, that's an impressive amount of work. :)

I have only worked on a single project this year, but I probably spent more than 2000 hours on it and nearly got myself burned out in the process. When i'm ready to get back into developement again I just want to do something simple and minimalistic. :P
