    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    So, after receiving a fresh FV-1 chip from PedalPCB a few weeks ago, I replaced the suspect device from my build, tested and it fired right up. Just wanted to let the group know this thread is now successfully completed. Thanks Robert!

    Spillway Vibrato ?

    Eagerly awaiting the Spillway. Can you define "friends"?

    Dwarven Hammer Help

    Usually, at least more helpfully, a help request might include good clear photos and a bit more information with references to the specific problem. From what I've read, the best I can make of the query is that something is wired incorrectly. I'd start dbl-checking the pedal's wiring to the...

    LEd color impact?

    Yes. they are very tiny. I was surprised too. But considering they come in bot fast and slow cycling versions, I can't see how they'd do it otherwise. And the point remains that the tiny µ-processor does inject noise if additional filtering is not added near those color-cycling LEDs. More...

    LEd color impact?

    With just two legs, they are definitely µ-chipped.

    EEPROM selection PCB

    TBH, while intriguing and quite the ideal solution for up to 64 different programs in one pedal, there are two primary concerns . . . . 1) I often like to use a couple different FV-1 pedals together and having 64 different algorithms on one pedal kinda defeats that. 2) I'm not aware that there...

    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    Thanks for the confirmation. Lesson learned. The vendor has over 33,000 sales with a 99.9% rating. Thought it would be a valid purchase during the extended 'out-of-stock' issue on the FV-1 availability. Lesson learned. Glad the vendor was willing to apply a full refund. Adding what I need to my...

    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    I ran the test as you suggested and I do get output. That suggests that the section after the FV-1 is fine. When I rotate the Mix pot, it comes and goes with the sweep. Less to none at the far left extreme and and gets louder as I sweep the Mix pot to the right, with little change past the...

    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    I've been using an audio probe in this manner for over 40 years and never had a problem. I just pulled out an Arachnid 1.0 build I have on my pedalboard and verified that connecting my probe in this manner had no problems rendering (delivering) the signal. Connected thus, I was able to verify...

    Alpha Solder Lug Conversion to PCB Mount Mod

    I use a a bit zip-tie to wedge into the slots. Then I apply the sleeves to get a full 1/4" fit on the 6.35mm (1/4") knobs. I get the sleeves from SmallBear.

    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    Excellent approach! Hadn't though of that. Will give that a go. Applying an input after C8 will isolate the FV-1 completely and expose any potential issues with the Mix & output section. And FYI, here's the audio probe setup I typically start with . . . .

    Arachnid 2.1 Build - No Wet Signal [SOLVED]

    Thanks for those suggestions. I'm well verse in the use of an audio probe, I just made and use mine a bit differently. It's just a 0.1µF 250 V cap with a 3" wire and gator clip at one end and 6" of wire with a 1/4" exposed (tinned) tip on the other. I usually connect the pedal's output up to an...

    I got 3 of them from AliExpress. The seller has thousands of sales with 99.9% rating.
