Lectric FX DC Echo
« on: July 31, 2020, 06:02:54 PM »
Haberdasher and Scruffie did super good with this one! A beautiful Analog delay that sounds even nicer than the DMM. I highly recommend for an analog delay.
Calibration was straight forward, scruffie did an excellent job with instructions.
And yes, I know, I outdid myself on the enclosure graphics. Lol! I'll probably take it out of the enclosure sometime in the future and give it a design or something.

Awesome, I wanna hear this thing in the worst way. How would you describe it compared to other analog delays?

Nice build!  That is a LOT of parts!

That was subliminal... You didn't see that... Lol! That was my family's food order tonight. I had to call it in while I was calibrating the delay.
@ tws: I've only played it for a few minutes after calibrating it and then it was only through computer speakers. I had the output plugged into the line in of the speakers. I'm sure I'll be able to better describe it once I plug in properly. First impressions are that it's similar to an old original memory man, it's warm sounding like the DMM but you have a lot more control over it. Most of the mods that analog man does to the DMM, this already has them incorporated into the board. And with the Xvive MN3005s available now, it's within everyone's reach. It's like a DMM but better. Much better.
When calibrating, I adjusted slowest clock to 10kHz and highest clock came out to 87kHz. So at lowest delay time its around 23ms and longest delay is something like 616ms. There is a lot of overlap at the shortest delay times, whether using the short or long setting on the switch, but on the short setting, the repeats are very very high quality because it's only going through one chip and not all 3 BBDs

Fantastic turnaround. I got mine this week but probably won't have time to build it for a bit. I'm looking forward to it!

Fantastic turnaround.
A week from release for one of the largest analogue delay builds out there? That's gotta be a record.

I'm so glad you're digging it! And a man after my own heart with enclosure art like that ;D

It's like a DMM but better. Much better.

 So I'm playing with it some more and I can get 29-30 repeats from it before they go away. If I turn the Feedback knob just a small bit further the repeats go to infinity. And just a bit past that, self oscillation starts. Infinite repeats is between the two lines.
Oh, and mine has an "overlord" indicator...
