Nice job, very partial to banana yellow myself.
Not exactly sure what these things do to be honest
It allows you to blend a clean signal with whatever effect(s) you put in the loop. There are separate level controls for the clean and effected signals, which is more versatile than a one blend knob. The clean gain helps to adjust the overall balance. There as lots of possible uses - blend clean with overdrive, use as blend for for a modulation pedal without an effect level knob, delay with chorus in the loop...
The basic build is very useful but there are some handy extra mods:
The kill switch ("kill send") turns off the send to the loop but not the return, so you can bypass a delay in the loop without losing the tails.
The T-Diddy mod ("wet max") switches from the blend to the wet signal at 100%. With an OD in the loop you can swith between the full OD signal and the clean/OD mix.
The second loop, which mine doesn't have (yet) inserts an effect into the dry side, so that you are now blending 2 different effected signals. Now that I have my head around it I can see that this is actually more useful to me than the 2 footswitchable mods, which would be more useful for gigging. I can add it with a single switchable stereo jack and a splitter cable (or sell this one and build another, if anyone wants it
It may not be obvious but all of these mods are straightforward(ish) "wiring mods" rather than changes on the PCB.
:shock: That is one awesome decalwork Graham, I'm stunned!!
Thanks Kunfuz. I originally thought that such a nice big box (it's a BBDD) would be great for a large graphic. Then I started adding all those text labels...
One mighty clean build of a mighty sweet pedal.
Thanks. It is indeed a sweet pedal - everyone should have one, it's so versatile.
I'd definitely end up gluing my hand to my crotch if I tried that.
