Wow so cool!  Thanks for sharing.

What's the voltage going to be on the Timelapse?  I'm curious because my effects loop of the amp I currently play blows every delay pedal I've tried away and something tap-able with high headroom would be awesome.

Haha... That would explain that. Learn something new every day.

Thanks for all the info and help.

Thanks guys,

R19... the one I didn't check.  It measured 1.8 k, swapped it out with a resistor that measured beforehand at 2K.  Then I measured again once it was on the board and got 1.8K.  I was measuring from pin 6 because I couldn't get the volt meter lead on the end of the resistor because its too tight.  Not sure why this would be the case, double checked my solder connections and they look good to me. 

I noticed my meter was messed up because it just measured 12 volts at the power supply, so I tried a different one and got basically the same voltages as in the build doc.  Rechecked R19 and still see the same value at about 1.88K.   

Swapping out the resistor made a really big difference, the delay is less pronounced and it sounds more chorus like.  Still a slight delay.  How is this controlled through R19?  How does this value affect the delay?  If I were to play with it or put in a trimmer would it make a difference?

Thanks for all the help.

Hi Everyone,

I've build the Glam Chorus and it seems to be sounding more like a slapback than a chorus, too much delay.  I heard an audio sample of it on You Tube and it sounds great.  Mine though has just a touch too much delay.  I double checked the values of everything and it doesn't look like I put in any incorrect components.  I tried a different PT chip and got the same results.  Anyone else have a similar problem?  I don't really know much about this circuit, is there a way to reduce the delay time on it?  I checked the voltages compared to whats in the build doc and mine are a bit, are higher by almost a volt.  Is this just a result of a power supply that's giving just a bit too much juice and increases the delay time?

Thanks for the help and info that you can provide.
