The Corruptor ring modulator
Here's a new original design. :)
This one is a ring modulator, a simple and brutal square wave ringmod. With the frequency pot you can tune the carrier signal to the note you are playing to find really cool sounds. As usual with these CMOS based circuits it works best using hot pickups and using the neck pickup with the tone rolled off.
I did a demo video. Sorry about the lenght, I got carried away...
I don't really like how the artwork turned out. I was going for something a bit nerdy with the lord of the rings reference but it turned out too metal for me haha.. Peterg at the diystompboxes forum finished his pedal long before me and his box looks much nicer. Have a look in this thread, which also includes alot more info on the developing progress :)

Thx for your efforts and reply! But meanwhile I build it already (used the pcb layout und modified a bit to my taste). ;-) I had the "brilliant" idea of putting an astable multivibrator made with an CD40106 into it. Now you can toggle between guitar and the oscillator running through the ringmod creating some nice lo fi sci fi sounds. CMOS are always fun again! Will give your mod a try and see how it sounds. Thank you so much!

Hey Fredrik, I was looking at building this little fella, and was hoping to build the version with the switch in it as in one of your comments here, but the layout png file is a dead link. Any chance of sharing that again?

Hi there. Built this one today and I love it. I'm curious how to add the Ringmod/Straight fuzz toogle to the vero layout. The link is dead...

Thanks Fredrik! I'll give it a go tomorrow. I will also tinker with a square/triangle switch seen in the DIYSB thread.

Hey Fredrik! Thanks for making so many great layouts available. I just built my Xor'Cist PCB and it's amazing.

Thanks Fredrik! That's exactly what I was looking for. I will try and get this put together tonight and test the momentary switch between the two.. it may not be as musical as I'm imagining it to be.. but it's worth a shot.

hello any schematic for this?

Schematics can be found both in the linked forum thread (of V1) and the build document (in the build doc section)
