Aion Lumitron
« on: September 23, 2023, 08:04:16 PM »
The Aion Lumitron aims to capture the essence of the magical Mu-tron III in a 125b sized package.  Let me just say this thing sounds damn good and is the least fiddly Mu-tron variant I can recall.  Like...you can't get a bad sound out of this thing.  I used the Vactrols that Aion is selling.  Easy build with a "this or this" trimpot that wasn't at all difficult to get dialed in.

If there was ever a "New Bohemians" in a box, this is it.

Thanks.  My usual "simple is better" ethos generally has the Flunkee as my go to.  I burned out on trying to get the Lovetone variations to work in a repeatable fashion.

Graphics and guts both look nice!

An "ugly proof" filter sounds nice. I generally like more options, except when it comes to auto-wah and compression.

That look sweet, Gordo!  8)  Dig the enclosure treatment, and a clean white PCB is not easy to pull off.

Lovely! I love the vintage Mu-Tron graphic design.
