General Questions / Re: Sagan Delay extra LED indication

MTK did a really cool job with this, and he did all the heavy lifting with the LED situation. I believe he used a “Sound to Light” circuit from Deadastronaut coming off of pin 15 of each PT2399 and one off of the dry signal too.
Thanks! Looks like that's something I need. Found that link (IC is 386): https://www.aronnelson.com/gallery/main.php/v/chickpea/sound2light2.jpg.html

Picked up a straight razor -- Razor Emporium's "Try" kit. (You can't go too far wrong for $70USD, I reckon, and while it's a cheap-ass Chinese Gold Dollar razor, their in-house technician-sharpener gives it the treatment and a new handle.)

There was blood. I did the part under my nose, and cleaning up the edges, with my normal safety razor.

But that has to be the smoooooothest I've felt my cheeks since before puberty. Real smooth. And, to be fair, there was some amount of blood on a daily basis when I was learning how to use my safety razor. Might have to continue with this.

First of all, welcome!

Second of all, in my experience, clock noise is a regular ticking or pulsing.  What you describe sounds more like a cell phone, laptop, pager (I'm showing my age here), printer, etc bleeding noise into your pedal.  Check for something with a CPU or radio transmission capability within 5 feet or so.   If that's not helpful, let us know.

General Questions / Electric Druid Flanger
« Last post by Amptroll on January 15, 2021, 09:50:53 PM »
Hello Everyone.  My name is Rob.  I have built quit a few amps but I am new to FX peds.
I just built the Electric Druid Multi-waveform version of Toms flanger.  It works but it
makes little digital talking sounds, for lack of better description.  Is this the clock bleeding thru?
The sound is like something from a 50s scifi flick, with bleeping and chiming sounds kind of.  It is
not constant but comes and goes.  I don't think it is periodic, but it does seem to make the same
set of these bleeping/chiming noises I am trying to convey here each time it does present itself
and it does not go away.  The flanger works while this is going on, and sounds great, but the noises
ruin it.
  HELP!!!
Rob

Open Discussion / Anyone build a Maestro Ring Mod?
« Last post by vizcities on January 15, 2021, 09:35:21 PM »
I never find ring mods usable, but I came across a demo for one of these guys & was intrigued. Are there any stripboard layouts available? Fabbed PCBs? Did a search, but all I could find was GGG's etch template... not a dealbreaker by any means, but also not my first choice.

Did you breadboard in all the power filtering? Ignore this if you're using a battery, though.

Just to clarify, this circuit has a LOT of gain, and almost anything creeping in can cause some issues. Ground your unused op amps, and put a resistor in series with your input voltage to make the filter caps work better. Keep your inputs and outputs separate.

Chris is a regular in these parts; I believe, if you search the forum, you might find some information on the delay and how he did it. This is actually the second generation.

General Questions / Sagan Delay extra LED indication
« Last post by Jaga on January 15, 2021, 06:05:32 PM »
Hello everyone!

There's a nice delay circuit by @diablochris which is called Sagan Delay. PCB of the effect is made by carchariaseffects: https://carchariaseffects.com/product-page/dc6fx-sagan-delay-v2-1-pcb/
They have this demo:


The cool thing about this particular build is very nice and useful LED indication: it has LEDs for displaying input signal, every delay stage, LFO and bypass. Just curious anyone has some ideas how it is done? The most interesting this is how these LEDs for each stage are done.

Thanks!
