There is a new version out without SMD which might be easier to trace.

Awesome, any chance you can do high res pictures? Also the other side of the PCB would be lovely

Without SMD ? I must be going blind.

Not my pedal, justanother pic I found.
I was wondering if anyone is talented enough to trace circuit parts and perhaps recognise what was going on..

I have nothing but pure speculation, BUT all the metal guys love the Maxon OD-820. Its high headroom and YATS but they don't care. in reviews and In the page where the big pic came from the owner put it next to one and said it has a bit more output, and the tone more range, but sounds pretty close. My guess is a slightly glossed over (charge pumped )YATS with fixed gain and fixed dead center or (slightly)scooped tone section. Bigger output pot would affect Highs and volume a bit. Again, this is all conjecture based on the guts I've seen so far. I'm probably dead wrong, but this guess is based on Fortin using classic designs with a few novel twists. The guy gets Metal Tones better than almost anyone else.
