Hi guys, I tried building this delay for the third time now. 1 only got clean sound while engaged, the other no sound at all, the third one had a very distorted/muddy/motorboat kind of delay sound and the effect will just go on and on until i turn down the feedback knob..
this isn't my first build, (i built the causality 4 mk2 phaser..on perfboard and lots more) i built the rebote 2.5 before.. but never a DBD. so, i wanted to try this one. I used mictester's layout for perf and also implemented the corrections noted by fretzburner. I've read this post (from the beginning) for about 3 times now.
Im not a voltage-checker type of guys, coz I'd rather check the traces first and all the components before I dive into voltages and all, and most of the time after verifying that every component and solder traces are spot on, the effects kick in. so, im wondering, am I missing something here, or should i just ditch this one and use a different layout (which would be a pain).
I would really like to know if there's something wrong with the layout i'm using, so that i could just fix my build and have all three boards fired up.
here's a couple of pics of my build. Please help me out. Thank you.
