VFE Projects / Re: The Scream - Issues
« on: July 02, 2020, 08:10:13 PM »
Everything seems right on the build. Voltages are good, parts are in the right way and resistor values seem correct from what I see. It's a stumper.
You may have to audio probe. Specifically pin1 of the 4558 to see if you are getting the correct gain output (wondering if maybe the signal is getting mangled later on in the tone circuit).

Open Discussion / Re: PT2399 Question - only wet output possible?
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:14:51 PM »
It would not work in this design. If you look again at the Repeat knob there's always a path for the dry signal to the output.

Actually, this design probably won't sound very good, IMO. Input impedance is way too low and there is insufficient filtering in the LPF-1 input. Also, your delay output is out of phase with the input.

General Questions / Re: Pepper Spray build docs mistake?

I'm sorry, I thought I had corrected that. I will do so today.

The transistor is 2n3565.
1n695 is the OG diode. Subs are 1n34a OR BAT41.

update: docs fixed

Hey guys,

I want to have this discussion continue as I feel it is an important one to be having. However, I do ask that we all refrain from terms like "Kung Flu" and "Chinavirus". I realize people have all sorts of names and puns for COVID, but as the admin I feel it's necessary to emphasize we avoid language that can be interpreted as incendiary. Some people take offense to the slang so we should try to avoid any divisive rhetoric for the sake of the forum.

Here's my story for this week. I had a dentist appt. and I thought a lot about cancelling it. But, I knew if I did I wouldn't reschedule for a year or more (plus my dentist is no longer accepting my insurance so I am out of network). Got there, plastic shields for the receptionist and I see hygienists wearing PPE. But, I had a new DH this time and sure enough, she came out wearing no mask (I was wearing mine, of course). She eventually put one on when she started working on me, but I feel like I should have asked her to do that before I went into her workspace. I was a bit weak in that moment. Hopefully, I won't regret that :(

How Do I? Beginner's Paradise. / Re: Help with a madbean stutr

I think this circuit will do the trick.

In order to get a 10k exp. pedal to control a 1M variable resistor you need to employ an optical controller. So, the LDR acts in parallel with the Rate pot to control the effective resistance, and therefore the speed of the LFO.

In this circuit, when there is no exp. pedal plugged in the optical controller disengages and the LDR is fully dark. When the exp. pedal is plugged in the pot in the exp pedal acts as a voltage divider which powers up the transistor which drives the brightness of the LED in the optical device. T1 is a trimmer which allows you to fine tune the range of the exp. pedal so you can get the right transition from slow to fast speeds. The EXP IN jack should be a Marshall style jack.

This might be more complicated than what you are willing to deal with, but I believe it will work.

Global Annoucements / Summer Sabbatical
« on: June 24, 2020, 07:27:37 PM »
Now that this recent round is released and most of those orders are shipped I'll finally be taking some time off. Actually, an extended period. I've been at it pretty hard for the last 8 months so it seems like the right time.

So, I will not be doing any project development or new releases for the remainder of the summer. I need this time to recharge a bit and work on some other fun stuff. During this time, I'll still be on the forum, still shipping orders and doing re-stocks. I will release the Tappy when it comes in on or around July 5th since that was already promised. I'll also be spending time on getting the new store done which I hope will coincide with the next releases. But, I won't be building any pedals most likely.

The next batch of releases will come in early Sept. and I expect there will be a "Fall Giveaway" that goes with that!

I'm ashamed of myself...

As long as your joke frequency doesn't peak more than this, you'll be fine. Your humor might not have as much resonance with others on the forum.

Perhaps he should a tri a new angle? Sines point to yes.

Update: There are way more VFE orders than I was expecting and I have found myself out of switching boards. Fortunately, the re-order has already been placed for them so all the VFE stuff will be back in stock by around the 5th. All current VFE orders will be fulfilled now.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I did not anticipate the demand.

Heads up: the la carte switching board is still a shop option.

Apparently some people know the website better than I do.
Thank you! Fixed.

Uh oh, all posts not about phasers will be removed ...

Unfortunately, I had to remove his title of Phaser Overlord in order to show his new Moderator one. Glitch with the forum, it seems.

Well time to switch projects to even smaller enclosures I guess.
