Got a few more to add to the pile.


Cloven Hoof (This one is pretty good, it's really high gain - kind of a fuzztortion)









Colossus Fuzz (with another Shoe Pixel in the background)





I can't find a circuit picture, it's from Tagboard though.



Random Number Generator (this one is just silly, I built it just because it's low parts and I wanted to try it out)









Buzz Fuzz (Meathead) G.C. Fuzz (EHX Green Muff modded for bass - it's the Tagboard layout - caps and resistors are different from the actual Green Muff, this pedal is thiiiiick and Carlin is my favorite comedian)







Pharaoh Supreme with Tentacle
This one was almost a bust. I designed the graphic before making sure both circuits would fit in that enclosure. I had to wrap tape around the octave circuit because the only pace for it was right over the power jack and it was touching. It's not pretty but it sounds good.








Sidescroller MK2 (So much fun. I just now discovered Parasit and all the cool circuits they offer. I've got 2 more on the way)








Black Mass (Coven Supreme - Normally the Coven is a Pharaoh and a Black Forest but this is a Pharaoh Supreme which adds in another rotary toggle switch. This pedal is my biggest build so far, with all those controls, it covers lots of ground)









And lastly, an A/B circuit tester. I was using my breadboard A/B as a vero tester but keeping the leads in the bb slots was a pain when you're fooling with the controls. This is better and takes up way less desk space.






This ends the tour, please visit the gift shop before exiting the thread. Thanks for stopping by.

I really dig the sidescroller and A/B tester for originality. I need to look up that A/B tester.

Thanks, man. Damn, I didn't know there was a layout for an A/B tester. That would've saved me some time. I made a layout in DIYLC, it looks a little chaotic but it works.
It's in here.  https://imgur.com/a/Og5B9VK

I love the creative use of LED's seamlessly built into the aesthetics of the project

Very kind of you to say.

Thank you. It always cool when they can be incorporated into the graphic.

Some awesome stuff here man, very inspiring! I love how the eyes alternately flash on the Darkadiator board

Thanks! I was trying to think of an arcade machine to go along with my Galaga and Pac Man pedals and the Space Invaders art just seemed perfect.

You killed it with the Space Invaders look. How did you wire up the LEDs to do do that?

The LEDs are all Parasit, it's just part of their design. Here's a clip from when I just finished it with some reds temp soldered in place.

MU/TH/UR 6000 - Parasit Studio - Quantum Defrakulator
« Reply #25 on: February 21, 2020, 01:25:49 PM »
I've been a little slow on builds lately. I just finished up this Quantum Defrakulator from Parasit Studio. I can't say enough good things about it. It's extremely fun. I had an issue with the 2nd step of the 1st oscillator. It would only work every now and then from the start. In the build doc it says that sometimes it takes the LFO a few seconds to get going and I thought that was it. Well, it turns out that the CMOS chip was at fault. I swapped it out with a new one, tested it out, and it acted very strange. The 3rd and 4th lights were randomly jumping back and forth and it sounded like it was dying. I quickly shut it off and noticed that terrible smell of burned electronics. I let the smoke out. That new chip I put in was hot a hell and in upside down:-[  I thought, for sure, that I had ruined it. I grabbed another 4052BE, put it in the correct way and switched it back on. It worked! But now I had a dead LED, coincidentally the 2nd step of the 1st oscillator. After removing all 12 of the knobs I had carefully installed juuuust right, I replaced the LED, buttoned it back up and it's good to. The graphic is MU/TH/UR 6000 from Alien. This will go nicely with my Ripley and LV-426 pedals.

Looking good as always. Do you play your guitar through the defraculator or does it just make noise?

It's just a noise synth. Output only.
