General Questions / Re: Bi-Phase Options
« on: June 08, 2020, 07:56:23 AM »
I might be biased but the deadendfx Lola is as close to the original as we could get it.  The power supply is modified and the input for the pedal has been modified since the original opto pedal is near impossible to recreate.

I think the pedal PCB version is based on the mutron reissue, which isn't the same as the original unit, I might be wrong but the reissue is just two mutron phasers in one box, it doesn't have the same waveshaping options as the original

The vactrols change the resistance into the filters, if the trigger isn't working and the led isn't lighting up showing the envelope working then the resistance into the filters will be high and the signal wont pass.

Does the led light up on the top when you play?  again this can be setting sensitive.

If you are on social media (Facebook) drop me a message (www.facebook.com/deadendefx) and I will help you through it.

Cheers

I'd check the wiring of the intensity and decay jacks and the soldering on the pads, sound like something could be grounding out in that section.  Hit us up on FB if you want talking through it

Did some more poking around and found that the tip of the Decay Jack has continuity with the Ground of the Intensity Jack. Could this be causing the problems?

Decay jack tip shunts to GND via the tip sw, all of the GND connections have continuity so yes it's correct

Also, Pins 5 and 6 on the rotary have continuity with no resistance, which seems incorrect. The status LED is lit up, dimmer in one position with full brightness in the other, which also seems incorrect.

*Edit*- Ended up switching the LM1458 for a NE5532, and the LED works as expected now, however, I'm still not getting any effect. This has also gotten rid of that short between pins 5 and 6. Gonna take another shot at the audio probe and see where we get.

Post some build pictures. 

The pcb is verified so there must be an error in how you put it together.

The envelope is sensitive to the IC, i'd recommend finding a legit 1458.  Have you checked the send / return is wired correctly.  if it isnt the envelope wont work.  It is also sensitive to the settings.  Make sure that the attack is set less than the decay and that the bandwidth swith is up or down (the envelope wont trigger if it's in the middle position)

Build Reports / Re: Ludwig phase II

Jimi, worth the google.  Was a Pink Floyd weapon of choice back in the day.  A little antiquated by today's standards but was WAY ahead of it's time.  The original looked like an ATM with foot controls.  And built by a drum company!!!  I've long sold my ARP Avatar but this is in that "holy crap...they could do THAT in the dark ages" vein.

The fact that it could be built into an enclosure this size is absolutely mind-blowing.  I think the original had a bazillion diodes just to make it work.

Aren't you confusing the Ludwig with the Synthi hifli, which had two 120 string diode ladders and was very much a pink Floyd thing. 
The Ludwig was used in the sonic youth song the diamond sea.

Build Reports / Ludwig phase II
« on: March 15, 2020, 06:22:18 AM »

Putting the finishing touches to the prototype build for our updated Ludwig Phase II design.  I dislike offboard wiring bad enough to drive me to redesign the pcbs with headers for the cross board connections, a few cut outs allow access to the trimmers on the lower boards.  Just waiting for a psu to arrive before i can fire it up.

My problem is I have zero use for the 3d rubbish, it's nice to see the 3d stuff but in the end i can live without it.

I've been using the madbean library and it does 99% of what I need.  To use the 3d stuff there will need to be 3d packages added to all of the components in the library which I'm sure represents a significant amount of work.

So Autodesk are getting rid of eagle and merging it with Fusion 360.

I'm not sure what this means in the long term and hopefully I'm worrying over nothing. But I can't help wonder why they don't just leave it alone.

I guess they need to justify the subscription fee somehow 😠😩😠

Dino and I should have some boards for sale soon for the infinite phase, this will include the sample and hold, rate switch and pseudo stereo output, + expression jacks for some of the controls.

This is a dual stackable board with the controls, S&H, CV and LFO on the lower board, and the PSU, audio and phaser on the upper.

Hopefully Dino will get through the verification build soon and we can get them up on the store

Nicely done indeed

We've added a few new Spaceman boards recently 😉
