Re: Disconnecting the Ringtone

I think thats actually just a side benfit. The little blank board is in all the sequencer pedals to keep the floating PCB with the pots from moving around or shorting against the jacks and battery. It may function as a shield but the wire is probably there just as much to keep it from falling out an...

Re: Disconnecting the Ringtone

I believe the small PCB between the switches handles the audio mixing while all the modulation circuitry is on the main PCB with the pots, leds, and mode switch. Probably one of the more impressive builds on the market right now. Its like artwork in there.

Re: Screw on Stomp Switch Surrounds as on TC Electronics ped

Hope this is the right forum as it is my first time post. I am looking for the finishing surrounds that screw onto the stomp pedals like the TC electronics pedals have. I am not sure what they are called. I have a Nova Reverb Pedal that has them on, they make a nice finish. https://i954.photobucket...

Re: Interfax - Harmonic Percolator [schematic]

Its not like that though. Its getting whisper levels at max volume through a loud amp. Ge diodes aren't that bad :lol: Its just one of those mysterious cases where everything is wired perfectly and somehow this one little thing is causing a failure of some sort. Everything works fine with the diodes...

Re: Interfax - Harmonic Percolator [schematic]

Has anyone run into issues where the output level is extremely low with the diodes in the circuit? I built one of these up over the weekend with a switch to disconnect the ground connection for both diodes and when the connection is lifted I get great output but when the diodes are connected to grou...

Re: Emma PisdiYAUwot?

Just watched the video in your link and sure enough, that's a nice sounding pedal!! Definitely couldn't afford that sort of price though!! It's hugely expensive for a handfull of components, some pots and a case!!!! Would seriously love to clone it though!!! Anyone got any ideas what the circuit is...

Re: Tycobrahe - Pedalflanger

This is sort of curious. I have one but the entire PCB has been coated in a paint-like red substance. Maybe dipped in paint after it was wired with leads?

Re: Lighfoot Labs - Goatkeeper (V.2 V.3)

The whole pedal revolves around the programming of the microcontroller. Everything else you see is just the analog audio path and the infrastructure to all the pots and jacks from the microcontroller.

Figured it out with a lil help. Both ICs need ground and power connections. The schem is at the beginning of this thread.

Im working on a vero for this project and after building this up its dead in the water. No signal past pin 3 of the first IC but I double checked it against the schematic AG posted and everything seems correct. But now that I look at Dirk's schematic there seem to be a lot more connections on that f...

Re: Ohnoho Utter Stutter

An hour or two to design a circuitboard if you already know the industry standard software for pcb design maybe.

Why perfboard!?!? Because in the short term, it's easier than taking the time to design a PCB and then pay to have it produced in quantity. ;) Yeah, sure, but what about quality?.
