A very sweet flanger indeed. Sounds much more jet-flange like w/ the color up than the real one I have. I was hoping you'd explore the extreme slower sounds as that's how I use mine most of the time. I'm so stoked to built this and A/B them.

It will be in the next batch of orders, which will also include the DirtBag. I had hoped to have already placed the order but I expect to be ready to do so this coming week. That puts the release at either the very end of this month or the beginning of November.

How obtainable are the chips required for this? Either way I'll be all over it I reckon.

The video demo was great. Some awesome flange going on.

Somehow it is not right hearing these sounds out of such a small enclosure.

In true EHX style I want to make mine about lunchbox size.

I'm really surprised myself. The thing that surprises me the most, though, is how much easier it was to dial in the bias and clock and get these results. I just did it by ear. The MXR117 is proving significantly more difficult. I think it has even more intense flange, but it's a real PITA. I'm gonna have to turn the scope on for that one.

The MXR definitley has a more intense flange, i'm thinking it's going to be a great candidate for Through Zero Flange modification (which reminds me, will it have send & return pads too like the Electric Mistress?)

What size enclosure are you aiming for the 117? Don't think you've posted an overlay of the PCB yet, does it have an onboard charge pump for the 3007? (Crossing my fingers for this).

I found my original electric mistress build easy enough to dial in but dialing it for a good sound was a little tricker, I kept getting a dead spot at the top of my sweep, think it can be a bit luck of the draw with flangers, my A/DA took me 5 minutes with no scope to dial in perfectly.

The MXR one is 125B, PCB mounted pots and has an onboard charge pump and regulator. It's about the same size as the Current Lover.
