Got my work cut out, right. I better hurry up if I want to get a layout done still this year then....
I’ve just realized that the tapLFO lacks the offset CV of and depth CV inputs of the stompLFO, which are arguably the most important controls to have in a flanger, so while the additional 8 waveforms, wave-shaping ‘distort’ feature, and tap tempo subdivisions would be nice to have, it would be much more trouble to adapt to Chuck’s design than I initially was thinking about.Can’t believe I missed this thread for months somehow. Would I be correct in assuming that with minimal tweaks this could be adapted to accept the big-boy Tap-LFO chip for additional control over waveshapes via the distort input of the chip, as well as tap-tempo subdivisions, and an additional bank of 8 waveforms?
Which PCB is that? Some existing flanger board that you used to build Chuck’s circuit?!?What. A. Crazy. Mofo.
In the best sense of the word.
Dial on the wave knob and it takes you through weird and wonderful whacky worlds of flanging LFOs, I wasn't quite prepared for how whacky it can get, lol....
Of course there's the more 'normal' flanger sounds as well that I better start myself off with to get fully into it, and yes having the blend knob is definitely a good move to be able to get it calmed down a bit.
The colour knob makes a massive difference too and dialing the top range of that with internal trimmer is important; it scared the beejezuz out of me first when I dialed that up and got into feedback zone.
Awesome design, mad genius I'd say. And I'm glad I had another spare 3102 left here after Chuck hooked me up (via a generous you know who person here) to a 3207 as well.
It's all go, hold on to the swoosh and swirl. Time to celebrate with a bit of photobombing.
As you can see in the gutshots she's a bit of a tight affair in there, I had two caps mounted underneath board and the inductor was meant to go underneath as well. However, I had only a 1000uH inductor which measured on the CCCT 840uH. I might replace that with a closer to optoimum 750uH when I get some.
Thanks so much for the awesomesauce projects here, all hail Chuck and the Boneyard me thinks.
