This should fit:

That looks great, funny I seem to recognize that image from somewhere ... :)
hope it works better with the added cap

Hi Phil,
Not sure how those isolator blocks from irig work, but I would assume it uses a DC/DC converter and its switching frequency might not play well with this pedal.

Try a 1n cap across the collector and base of T1.Or from base to ground, see which works best, you might need to try a few values. I actually found that shaving some of the hi end off helped with the octave being more prominent.

It looks awesome! I'd be curious to hear it in action with both trems on :)

While they do work nicely and would have been really practical, in the long run they're just not sturdy enough.
Sorry if I got someone to buy them too ..

feel free to "I told you" ;-)

try a larger value for R10, could be too much current sinking through the LED's, perhaps.

I had no idea sugru bonded so well, even to metal. I really need to find some of that stuff
I agree about your point that it's better when you can feel how much torque you apply. Often when I used a wrench it ended badly ..

that's a pretty good idea

How much torque can 3D printed things handle? I'm curious.
I think that given the thickness it should be able to handle the torque necessary for the kind of parts we tighten.
you actually better not tighten stuff too much. I have decapitated my share of pots and jacks to know :-/  footswitches can handle more torque, whether they need it is another story
Time will tell, I'll report back ;-)

Check these out:

I already ordered mine ;-)

Happy new year to you all BTW !

When you say it's out of sync, do the Strymons detect your tap signal at all or just nothing happens?
All I can say is that according to their description your wiring should work. It's a bit odd that it should need to actually switch from VDD to ground, usually the high potential would be pulled up and you just need to pull it down to ground to trigger the action. But it might be a multifunction jack and I don't have all the details.
Perhaps just plug in your stereo jack on the strymon and measure if you have any voltage on the ring and if there is some on the tip.
While you are there you could try to just short the ground and tip to see if that would be enough to trigger it.

Great to hear that, congrats Mike !

Bad jobs can suck the life out of you ....
All the best for your now adventure ;)

I saw this thread and I am having problems uploding hex file. I am using pickit 3 and win10, so did anyone else had problems with this combination?

I have not heard of anyone using a pickit3 reporting success yet.
At the end of this page there is some info regarding how to make it work with some mods but it's not verified I think:

you can get a pickit2 knock off so cheap on ebay that it might not be worth risking to kill yours ;-)

Still haven't gotten it 100 percent yet.  Here are the steps I did on my latest attempt.

In SpinAsm I open the project dialog box and load each effect that I want in the corresponding spot.  My the effects I chose are:

Prog 0   MDD Particolay
Prog 1   rom_rev1
Prog 2   rom_fla_rev
Prog 3   rom_trem_rev
Prog 4   MDD Pitch Step Glider
Prog 5   Envelope Phaser
Prog 6   MDD Double Dliaser
Prog 7   key_rev

Then I powered the pedal, connected the Pickit to the PCB which is connected and flashed the chip.  I had the 1P8T rotary set to Prog 0 when flashing the chip.  I then disconnected the pickit from the PCB and set the rotary to Prog 1.  I then did the same steps with Prog 1.  I decided to try the pedal to see if those two settings were properly loaded. 

I still have all 8 slots filled but only 4 effects.  My options for effects are this:

Prog 0   MDD Particolay
Prog 1   MDD Particolay
Prog 2   rom_fla_rev
Prog 3   rom_fla_rev
Prog 4   MDD Pitch Step Glider
Prog 5   MDD Pitch Step Glider
Prog 6   MDD Double Aliaser
Prog 7   MDD Double Aliaser

I thought this was weird since not only do I have doubles of 4 effects, but I did not even load Program 2-7 yet.

Unless something is going wrong when you create the hex file (which I doubt) you may have an issue on your PCB, perhaps a bridge or bad connection around the diodes used for the switching logic. Have a close look over there. If you don't find anything, you can send me your hex file so I can check it, that way we'll eliminate that probability
