Charnauk Delay
« on: December 30, 2020, 11:47:38 PM »
I forgot that I built this over the summer and didn't post it. This is an idea I slapped together a while back but never put into an enclosure. I posted a video of me playing it on Instagram, and someone asked if I could build him one. I built him one, but it didn't work right, so I gave him my board that was functioning correctly. It's a delay that gets into weird warped territory because it has multiple LFOs to modulate delay time and echo filtering. One LFO is a ramp down triangle wave that only affects delay time (like most modulation on delays), and the other LFO is several square waves summing at different rates for a pseudo-random warble that controls delay time modulation as well as part of those summed signals affecting a HPF filter's frequency cutoff. There is also a gain stage to clip the delay signal and a switch to use one or two PT2399s in series. The guy that bought it from me also wanted a momentary switch to kick in the delay sporadically but also wanted it bypassable with a toggle switch.

The enclosure is bare with a waterslide decal and Envirotex over it.




And I managed to get a little demo of this oddity before shipping it out.

Super cool. Sounds like dueling clean Clari(not)s with repeats and lfo. I kinda...

Nice! 

I think everyone had that Wham! tape that they left on the dashboard.

What a wicked cookie.... the Mad Scientist look & sounds are just emboldened by the Molecular Cell Biology.
Great build.
