You switch these bits around.

Your 4047 isn't working, no clock, no delay signal.

Very nice catch, I'm not sure I'd ever have considered an open resistor.

Oh I see, I thought you'd resolved the problem.

I think photos might be of use in this case, seems like there might be a short if the VB is working elsewhere.

That'll do it, I was expecting that the BBD output op amp was going to be the problem, given how close to the rails it ends up biased.

Yeah I've been down that road before, you'll probably have to keep an eye on ebay for used lots of old potentiometers.

It's not ideal but the rate pot is more dependent on taper than the 'balls' so you could switch those around and try out a standard log or linear for the feedback which are a little easier to find in 24mm.

You can also try and repair the wafer (I know pinkjimiphoton uses a pencil to do it) but perhaps if it had been fiddled with before, that might have already been attempted and failed.

What sort of pickups are you using? It's not exactly designed for high headroom.

Could you please also post your MN3008 voltages regardless, just so I can double check them.

1 & 5 are fine (power is switched for the MN3207 vs. MN3007) pin 6 should be the same as pin 2, there's a problem with your 3102.

Fantastic turnaround.
A week from release for one of the largest analogue delay builds out there? That's gotta be a record.

I'm so glad you're digging it! And a man after my own heart with enclosure art like that ;D

It's like a DMM but better. Much better.

Pots can wear out or suffer from skips etc, yes. You might be able to repair or replace the wafer rather than finding a replacement pot depending on its construction.

Of course, it could be something else in the LFO circuitry causing strange behaviour, perhaps the electros have gone bad.

It's just the transistor bit.

Here it is negative ground, 'input' is R10.

Those subs should be fine.

So, you definitely have the scope & signal generator set right, have you tested you have good anti-phase square waves on the BBD clock pins and also that the signal isn't getting lost before the BBD?

If so the problem must be on the output of the BBD, perhaps Q4.
