I've had a bit of time to play through the Nucleus and don't think it's functioning properly quite yet. The sound is fuzzy and loose and not at all like the demos I've heard of the Atomic Overdrive, which has more of a hot-rodded Marshall tight distortion sound. I've probed around the circuit...
I checked the voltages on the TL072 opamp:
pin 5: 0.37v
pin 6: 3.02v
pin 7: 8.49v
pin 8: 9.13v
I don't seem to have continuity between pin 7 and ground. Are you sure that's necessary? the schematic doesn't seem to show that. thanks for helping out.
I need some help with this pedal, I've made 5 in a row without any problems but this one has me stumped. The signal sounds great right up until the end of the circuit and then gets really quiet and noisy (ground hum). Here's a gut shot and where I believe the problem is in the schematic. I've...
They look great, too bad about that unnecessary layer of white ink. From what I understand from working as a graphic designer way back, you would need the white underlay for colors lighter than the green background color but not for black. Matte looks way more precise to me. Might try Tayda’s UV...
I just finished a Tso Compressor and a Thermionic Distortion (pictured below) next five PedalPCB pedals are:
2. Boneyard Delegate
3. Ocelot Octave
4. Brown Betty
5. Caesar Chorus
And a few Aion pedals, to push my skill level:
L5 Preamp and the Blueshift (a double decker PCB)...
