04.02 - corrections to Collosalus and Fraudhacker
« on: April 02, 2023, 07:00:12 AM »
The Collosalus has one correction on the PCB and has been noted in the doc with an explanation. If you have built this project, you can follow the instructions to make the correction manually on the previous version of the PCB. It may not be necessary however.

The Fraudhacker wiring diagram was changed. Previously I indicated a possible problem with soldering the bypass LED directly to the PCB but it turns out I had some crappy LEDs. So, the "normal" wiring should be fine.

All of this is further explained in the relevant project pdfs.

We’re the LEDs from Tayda and were they dimly lighting up when bypassed?

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

I have some blue ones from Amazon and Tayda. Exact issue. Maybe I don't understand blue LEDs  ;D Perhaps they require star grounding to shut off completely.

My blues ones from Tayda do the same thing. Drove me nuts. Threw away a whole batch of stomp boards before I figured it out.
