    Paludarium Platform Development

    I have transformers for plugging in microphones and what not into pedals. However, I was more interested in having balanced ouputs (i.e., inverted signals sent down the line) due to the noise reduction that happens with them. I guess you are right though, I can just mod things to suite my needs.

    Cepheid to be more like Caesar?

    Curious if anyone has done this mod? It seems like we would need four 12K resistors and a B10K pot. It would be cool if someone could/would include pics of the holes they used for the mod. I may trace the board at some point and try.

    Which inductor for the newest version of Conqueror Fuzz?

    Perfect! I was just about to ask about the bare holes. The via around R16 (10K) was throwing me for a loop.

    Which inductor for the newest version of Conqueror Fuzz?

    I am curious as well. On the build docs it says 500mH. I purchased a TM013-R from small bear. I am currently trying to trace the circuit and figure out where I am supposed to solder the leads. It would be great to hear from someone who as put this together already? Or perhaps I will just give...

    Paludarium Platform Development

    I like to run time domain effects (reverb and delay) post amp in stereo and route back into mixer. Guitar -> mono pedals -> amp -> OX BOX -> stereo time pedals -> mixer It would be cool if there were balanced TRS inputs or low impedance XLR inputs ... maybe?

    Caesar Chorus

    Those knobs look really clean. Where did you get them from?

    Sourcing a CH341A

    Another option, albeit convoluted, is an Arduino. I have an old pedal I made with a headphone jack (tip: SDA, ring: SDL), and I plug this into a board with Arduino. I compile the FV-1 files and run a Python script which generates an Arduino code which writes to the EEPROM. The Arduino can be...

    Cepheid Chorus Level Mod?

    I was curious about this as well. I currently use a mix pedal for my choruses. It would be nice to have a mix between full clean and full vibrato. So, the Caesar a Cepheid with a blend knob? I suppose the lag is the delay time? It is looking like if I wanted to modify the Cepheid to have a...

    Stomp switch wiring diagram

    Getting two wires (gray and yellow) in the hole 1 can be tricky. I have been stripping the yellow wire long enough to make it through hole 1 and 8, then feeding the bare wire through hole 1, then through shrink wrap, then hole 8. As an added bonus, the heat from the soldering iron usually...

    Are Mica capacitors legit for pedal building?

    Very cool info. I had read about MLCCs being affected by DC bias but wasn't able to find a formula for it to calculate the potential impact. I know that it is considered in certain applications, like medical equipment, but might not have a reasonable impact on pedal electronics. From your...
