Spillway Vibrato ?

There have been a few setbacks on this one, I just never could get the algorithms to where I was happy with them.
Things have changed and new developments mean that it's going to be better than planned. The setbacks were a blessing in disguise.
Does this by any remote chance suggest you might going with Electro-Smith's "Daisy Petal" (or some variant thereof) instead? (I've been watching that site for the release of their new audio processing rigs.)

Yes. I have the Petal for development purposes, the boards here will use the Seed module.
After bit more research, I understand now that the "Seed" IS the heart of "Daisy" system. If you don't mind, what platform and development software are you using with your 'Seed'? (I'm looking for a Windows GUI app to work with developing for the Daisy. Still searching on my own too.)

Yep, that's correct. The Seed is the DSP. All of the other products have a Seed plugged into them, they're basically just interfaces.

I'm on a Windows PC. Doing all of the development in C++, no graphical tools. Compiling / flashing via the command line.
Eventually I want to get everything set up in Visual Studio, but for now it's working just fine.

You can apparently use PureData and Max/Msp, but I've vowed not to touch anything graphical this time around...

I already had a fair amount of experience with C++ so take this with a grain of salt, but I'd highly recommend attempting to learn to write code. You'll have a much better understanding of what's going on, and I suspect there will be more peer support going in that direction as well.

Thanks for all of that. I have decades of programming experience with MS products, using VB, VBA, ASP, PHP & HTML after being introduced to Fortran in college. The 'C' language eludes me as did calculus. I may go with an Arduino approach and the Daisy elements found on GitHub for Electro-Smith. Just to reduce the learning curve.

Regarding the Daisy... that sounds awesome, very exciting stuff. I had been eyeing it for getting into diy digital synth stuff, but seems awesome for guitar pedals after reading this thread.

Regarding vibrato fv-1, I posted a real simple code on the algorithms forum over at the spin semi forum today. I think it sounds real nice, obviously not as involved as the EQD aqueduct or whatever daisy projects are coming down the pipe.
