Headtrip2 patches - you decide!
« on: September 15, 2020, 06:47:03 PM »
Things are going to start ramping back up here at mbp very soon but before I put out the next batch of releases I'd like to get suggestions for the Headtrip2.

The HT2 PCB is already complete but the patches are not finalized. There will be 8 available. I have ideas of things I want to include but I'd like to get suggestions in case someone has a really cool idea. Most likely I will put in a couple of patches from the OG Dreamtime and HT1 projects and a couple really cool new ones I have cooking. This leaves the opportunity for you guys to make suggestions on other effects I could include as patches.

So, put in your suggestions for your top 3 or 4 requests for FV-1 patches and I'll see what I can come up with in response. Keep in mind I cannot do things like tap tempo or presets. I'm only looking for suggestions on particular effects that would make a good multi-effect pedal out of the HT2. Also, there are only three knobs to change parameters on each patch so keep that in mind with your requests.
Things are fine, actually.

I still really dig the DBA reverberation machine in "dark mode". it's like a fuzzy, long reverb. something like this or similar in the ambient categorie would be cool. controls could be decay length, fuzz, mix.
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

What about an arpeggiated delay? Something like first, fifth, octave would be most universal, or all octaves. 

I have some flange and chorus patches on an FV-1 build.  In my opinion the FV-1 doesn't do these well, but the delays and reverbs are excellent.

Well, since you ask, I could really use:
1. Reverse delay
2. Octave generator

+Bonus challenge+
A tremolo that rhythmically accelerates & decelerates between 1x & 2x speed.
The controls could be:
Rate: Speed of the tremolo (x)
Cycle: How often the speed swaps between 1x & 2x
Offset: How long the speed ramps between 1x & 2x

^Did that make any sense whatsoever?
^My MoogerFooger ring modulator can do something like this, but I've stopped lugging that big beautiful weirdo around.
Criticism is encouraged: constructive, or otherwise.

Lot of good suggestions here so I will use them as a guide. I think the only that probably won't work for the HT2 is tremolo because the wet and dry are different controls. IOW, if you wanted to use a trem you'd have to turn down the dry signal all the way. It's still possible to do, just not ideal. Or, maybe there is a way around it that I don't know about.

After building Megatron TMK, I tend to agree with this.

I find the chorus to be adequate, esp. when used in combination with delay. But, yeah, I don't like the canned flanger sound. Maybe I could do something to make it more interesting, like an envelope controlled rate or depth mod. That could be cool.

The chorus was functional.... the onboard chorus/reverb is nice.

So having patches is not going to be a problem. I think I've worked out about 15 new ones in the last week or so. I'm also working on some stereo patches for the stereo FV-1 project, too. That comes out this winter.

Here's a preview of one of the stereo patches:
