Errata, Corrections, Revisions / Glasshole correction
« on: October 26, 2020, 07:38:23 AM »
A member has found an error in the Glasshole PCB. It requires a pretty easy fix, fortunately. I have updated the pdf and zip file for the Glasshole with details on the error and how to fix it (needs a short lead soldered in).

Apologies for the error and any frustration this may have caused. I will get this corrected on the board when I order the next batch.

Global Annoucements / Fall projects now available
« on: October 25, 2020, 04:47:33 PM »
The new projects are here. New fuzz giveaway, too!
Demo coming tomorrow (video is shot but I need more time to edit).

Open Discussion / Handy little tool

If you need to get a bunch of voltages from inside a pedal, a ground clip wired to a the sleeve of an empty plug sure does make life easier. Not sure why it took me so long to get around to making one.

Global Annoucements / Oct. Release Update
« on: October 13, 2020, 06:36:14 PM »
I was pushing to get the Oct. releases out Thursday but realistically I have 3 or 4 more days of work to do. All the builds are done but I'm still finalizing the Headtrip 2 patches and then I need to type up documentation.

Anyway, it's coming soon and a reminder that this release will include a giveaway (Violenzz Fuzz).

For the HT2 - these patches are finalized and will be included:
ChoirMouse - Octaver a la the Organized Trio
Fourgan - Diphthong envelope filter plus organ (it sounds hella cool)
Sinkhole - Whammy Detune + Tremolo
WhiteHole - Delay + Flanger
Dreamtime - From the OG Dreamtime project
These Halls - Reverb + choir

These are the remaining I am still deciding on (and debugging)
Spacebomb - Reverb with a "flange bomb"
These Ruins - Reverb with 4th down 5th up
WarbleOnder - Weird but cool enveloped pitch shifter
Asymptomata - Delay w/ slicey filter tails

Plus about 5 others that I worked out but decided to put to a later project!

Global Annoucements / ElGuapo name change and giveaway
« on: October 08, 2020, 06:30:24 PM »
I got a request for a name change on the ElGuapo project and decided it would be a good idea based on the info provided. There is a pedal already named ElGuapo and it's a fuzz so the ask is not so unreasonable (of course, commercial and DIY are separate but intertwined worlds). Before the pitchforks come out this came from a person I know and it was a friendly request so I didn't see any reason to make a big deal about it.

Anyway, ElGuapo is now called LETFA which stands for Less Than Four Amigos. Also, I decided to give away the remainder of the ElGuapo boards until I can get another batch made with the name change.

So, every order starting today will be receiving a ElGu--er, LETFA board until I update this thread when they are all gone. PS this is totally my decision, not a request from anyone.

Build Reports / Couple PedalPCB builds
« on: October 08, 2020, 05:58:46 PM »
The Organ Donor I built quite a while ago but never boxed. Since I was doing the Leprechaun anyway I decided I should get my act together. I really like the Rainbow Puker graphics here :) Conveys my feeling about the Rainbow Machine perfectly.

I held off on building the Leprechaun for a long time since there was no schematic in the build doc. So, I just traced it directly from the PCB. Nothing too surprising in there although I do like how the Regen control was used. I'll probably borrow that for a future project! The rest is just exploiting one of the internal patches. I think it's a pretty clever design.

Global Annoucements / International shipping available again.
« on: September 16, 2020, 07:24:53 PM »
I think it is safe to go ahead an open up international shipping for now. While there are still a few countries USPS is listing as suspended service they have little cross-over with mbp customers. So, ordering is now available worldwide. I will keep the status for refunds to 45 days after ship date for now (outside US and Canada, I mean). Hopefully there will be no problems.

Open Discussion / Headtrip2 patches - you decide!
« on: September 15, 2020, 06:47:03 PM »
Things are going to start ramping back up here at mbp very soon but before I put out the next batch of releases I'd like to get suggestions for the Headtrip2.

The HT2 PCB is already complete but the patches are not finalized. There will be 8 available. I have ideas of things I want to include but I'd like to get suggestions in case someone has a really cool idea. Most likely I will put in a couple of patches from the OG Dreamtime and HT1 projects and a couple really cool new ones I have cooking. This leaves the opportunity for you guys to make suggestions on other effects I could include as patches.

So, put in your suggestions for your top 3 or 4 requests for FV-1 patches and I'll see what I can come up with in response. Keep in mind I cannot do things like tap tempo or presets. I'm only looking for suggestions on particular effects that would make a good multi-effect pedal out of the HT2. Also, there are only three knobs to change parameters on each patch so keep that in mind with your requests.

Global Annoucements / Store closing Tuesday afternoon
« on: August 10, 2020, 08:44:43 AM »
The Store will close again on Tues. afternoon and re-open Sunday. This should be the last time for a while. I may have a couple fun surprises coming up late next week even though I am still "on break" for several more weeks. I just can't quit you guys.

Open Discussion / Cat barf extravaganza
« on: August 07, 2020, 02:56:34 PM »
25 or so years ago my cat barfed on my Portastudio 424 (right in the upper vent area). Many other grosses were made upon it over the years. So, I did a complete disassembly and cleaning on the unit. Lots of dust and dry barfs. Knobs were cleaned, looks almost new. Damn door is broken though. Took like 3 hours.

Anyway, the purpose of this is to follow through on my most procrastinated project: dump my 100 or so demo tapes to my PC. Many embarrassing musics will be uploaded for your entertainment at some point.

Things to look forward to:
Songs about breakfast cereal
Songs based around "Short Circuit" samples
Songs based around TKITH "Braincandy" samples
The 1st act of a never finished 3 act musical about a guy who talks backwards

Open Discussion / What the hell are these called?
« on: August 06, 2020, 06:57:02 AM »
The little grounding springs for PCB to enclosure. I have some, I just can't remember where I got them or what they are actually called.

Global Annoucements / Store has re-opened
« on: August 02, 2020, 08:15:19 PM »
Had to go out of town suddenly but I'm back and the store is open again. Couple new things:

Wavelord has been updated to include a new resistor. This is to prevent the issue of the Multi pot resetting when turned all the way up. Doc has been updated accordingly. If you have the previous version, the fix was already posted here:

A limited number of the old Current Lover boards is available. Since the new version is taking a long time and people keep asking me about the old one I got a few on my last restock order.

I've got some extra Radiophonic CDs to give away. You can get one by adding it to to an existing order for the price of a penny. Standard shipping charges will apply regardless, but there is no minimum $$ amount required if you want the CD.
