Soulfull Drive
« on: August 17, 2020, 12:04:29 AM »
Based on Aion FX Thulcandra schematic, this is an adaptation of Xotic Sould Driven Allan Hinds signature drive. Aion changed the interal dip switches with a bass pot which makes a whole lotta sense.
Another great overdrive in the box... which one to play today...

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

you've really got your style dialed in! I could identify your builds anytime (even without the top screw-technique).
lovely build as usual!
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Cheers guys! Plyed it loud last night first time at band practise and liked it a lot. Great circuit, nice fat sounds and still defined.

Your builds are always amazing. I like that you added the relay bypass circuitry directly to the pcb. Is it pic based by the way? I guess so.
And what company do you use to print your pcbs? Iíve had good experiences with Seeed and of course Osh park.

Anyways, great build as usual!

Cheers Boba! Yes relay bypass is PIC based, check out this great work and write up and it has the code as well:

I have just relatively recently started designing pcbs again after doing it some years ago with Eagle. I'm now using Diptrace and I'm lovin' it, works a lot more intuitive and efficient for me.
PCBs I get done with

two batches  so far and good experience, relatively fast turn around and boards seems just fine.
