It's been a long time since I posted anything. I've been very busy lately, working, touring and doing other projects. It's been hard just to keep up with the emails i'm getting every day, let alone work on new stuff. But in the last couple of week I've finally had some spare time, and I've managed to complete a couple of projects that has been brewing for a long time. I hope you find these interesting. :)
1. U-235 Suboctave Generator
The U-235 is a "clean" octave down based on the CD4046 PLL chip.
It tracks very well both with guitar and bass.
It has three modes:
1. One octave down
2. Detuned (in between one and two octaves down)
3. Two octaves down
Here's a quick phone demo using the bridge pickup on my SG.
2. The New Wave CV Generator
The New Wave is basically a stand-alone LFO board that can be used with synths or other effects to modulate the sound with various waveforms. It doesn't make any sounds on it's own.
It has one CV output that can be toggled between 4 modes:
1. LFO 1 - square
2. LFO 2 - saw/sine/ramp
3. Sample and hold
4. Sequencer (3 or 4 steps)
In the demo i'm using it with the Into the Unknown guitar synth which already has a pad on the PCB for a CV input, but several parasit studio projects will be updated with optional Control Voltage inputs, such as the 0415 Guitar Synth, Sentient Machine, Green Currant and more.
The CV range is switchable between 0-5v or 0-9v.
I expect about 5-8 weeks until release.
New PCB versions released!
Here is a much improved version of the Xor'cist, with the fat trimmed. It's now a much simpler and straight forward build. It has a redesigned input stage, so issues with ringing notes and oscillation should now be a thing of the past. :)
The Sonic Reducer has also gone through a complete overhaul. It's also easier to build, and has no longer any need for a JFET. :)
This PCB has gotten a facelift, and is now green to fit the name. Circuit-wise it's the same.
The PCB has also gotten a facelift.
Four new versions of old projects are released and now avaliable in the webshop.
I also have new 3PDT-boards with LED + CLR in stock.
Just enter the code "summersale" at the checkout. Valid until 5/7.
That wraps up this long overdue post. I hope everyone out there is having a great summer.
