Favorite 1590XX/1790NS Projects?
« on: March 28, 2020, 05:32:30 PM »
Pulled out an extra 1590XX that I had lined up for a customer that bailed, so now I've got a nice blank enclosure to put something in with all this new free time. What are some of your favorite 1590XX projects that I could put in here? Open to anything!

Lasts ones I did were Brejna's Pangea Vibe and the Grind 800 tube projects so my opinion doesn't count. Both kill though.

Great size for a two-in-one or even a three-in-one project....
See what boards you have laying around and find a couple/few that would play nicely together.....?
I did a handful of these using modded Big Muff and Rat circuits.
Maybe go more ambient/shoegaze and do some delay & reverb?

DeadendFX has quite a few XX builds, Flange-A-rama is one my favs.

Definetely the GrindCustoms STM800 was the best XX project. It's such a shame it's no longer available. :-[
