Bag of effects – Part 2

Posted on March 19th, 2011

Started experimenting with the front panel today. Iv only got two effects done but its much nicer to have them behind corrugated fiberboard than dangling around in strings all over the place. You can see the structure i intend to use with all the patching to the right and the knobs to the left. The next effect in the pipe is the phaser. Im exited to hear how it sounds. wellwell..pix:

Bag of effects – Part 1

Posted on March 8th, 2011

I have decided to build a lot of effectpedals and put them all in a bag. The thought is to have a simple 3 channel mixer in the bag as well so that the routing of the effects can become parallell instead of in series. I have finished two of the effects thats going in the bag. An Orange Squeezer compressor and a Rebote Delay. Soon ill be able to start working on the frontpanel.

Planned effects to put in the bag are: two or three delays, big muff distortion, phase 45 phaser, some kind of variable state filter and then perhaps some other kind of distortion as well.

This will enable me to perhaps get rid of all the misc random effectpedals thats just lying around my studio that never get used anyway.

If you wanna help building this bag of awesome sonic pleasure there are some things i havnt really worked out yet, one of them is the power supply. I have little experience of these things but I realize that i cant afford to keep buying 9 volt batteries once a week. =) The other thing is the filter. I havnt found an easy design that fits my needs yet. Perhaps you got some suggestions? A filter similar to the ms-20-filter would be nice with both the low pass and the high pass in series.

Devsound has been busy this week!

Posted on January 26th, 2011

We (we being salkinitzor & linde) started the week by modding/circuitbending my Yamaha Electone organ. It now have: More and stronger reverb, slow and strange phaser knob, a volumeknob for turning down the drummers noisechannel. (hihats and such) The original plan was to try and trig the single drums and thus building either drumpads to place on the organ lid. And/or smack MIDI in to it! We havnt given up on that yet. A LINK to a similar project.

Also i recived a big pack of guitarpedal-kits the other day from Sebastian. Among them 3 Delays, a Big Muff, Orange Squeezer Compressor, a vintage phaser etc. I started building the Orange Squeezer and i posted a picture of it in its temporary enclosure. You can also see the goodiebag of electronic joy on that picture.

Last but not least: We went to Forsken in Malmö to hang out with geeks & nerds and Philip got a chance to show what he can do with a C64, an arduino, a regular laptop and a joystick port. He can transfer stuf!

Great stuf!
