  1. is the frequency sweep pretty dramatic? thats all i care about. other than the oscillations that is
  2. pear, what was that Low pass filter you were talking about? Im trying to find one where I dont need to have +/- 15 volts. tough to find though
  3. vactrols are the same as the LED LDR combo, just more expensive. also, plenty of awesome pedal builders like Dr. Scientist roll their own LDR LED combos, and i cant imagine a pedal sounding better. im going to try and find some optotransistors, but ive got quite the stock of LDR's. ill try the LDR's and if im happy with them then ill forget the OT's. and as far as you not being happy with the resistance of the LDR's, you just have to see what the resistance is when the LDR is in the dark and when its in the light. then apply it to the circuit.
  4. i have made the trem so i can easily just throw some LDRs in parallel with the speed and depth, but ive never made an evelope follower so im going to breadboard that and see how it works with the trem. the only thing im wondering is if the LED will be an acurate representation of the signal going through the circuit, but in theory its the same idea as an optical compressor or an envelope filter.
  5. ive been thinking about this project for about a year now, but really havent done anything with it. heres a very rough draft of what i want to do. it takes the tremolo from the tremulus lune, and the input buffer and envelope detector from the Dr. Quack. i think it should work, i cant see why it wouldnt. Ive made the tremolo before, and i love it so im not really going to modify it. im going to breadboard the envelope part and see what works best, and i will modify that specific section to taste. enjoy the hacked together MS paint schematic. you could use an SPDT to switch the envelope part, but a DPDT would make it neater, and this project is going to have plenty of offboard wiring, so why not. edit: missing input and output caps on the buffer.
  6. this is a little odd, but i had a dream about that analog POG type effect you were working on a long time ago, what happened with that?
  7. fitting effects into 1590a's is an art form, im gonna give it a shot this summer. i imagine board mounted 3pdt's are the way to go. great work!

  9. in pedals, i usually use 1/8 watt resistors, it really doesnt matter, but these are cheaper than 1/4 watt. for the board, i suggest capsnsuch.com. they have cheap stuff, including vero which is hard to get in the US. also the guy who runs it is a cool guy, and shipping is quick! i dont feel up to the challenge of checking the layout as ive had a few to drink im sure there are tons of confirmed layouts for this particular fuzz pedal though. what do you mean by the type? im going to assume its non polarized, non electrolytic, since there are no markings that i can see in the photo. good luck! i might actually do this build myself!
  10. to be fair i was a little high  it just detects changes in RF i believe, which would depend on how close or far the human is. RF not AC
  11. no reason it couldnt be used as a probe pedal. thing is, theres speculation it runs on AC instead of DC and detects human AC.
