Today I want to share my latest project, which is the Tap-Tempo Clock micro controller. The basic idea behind this thing is to have a single box on my pedalboard that accepts a tap-tempo, and this box then synchronizes this tempo with all my tap-tempo enabled effects in real-time. On top of the basic usage […]
Here’s another request I’ve had on my list for a while; the Marshall Guv’nor. Not sure what to say about this one. I’m guessing it’s an overdrive of sorts and it probably sounds nice. Update (06.04.2014): Verified as working, thanks to Jsiam!
Next up in the tap-tempo series; the Boss CE-2! Again, somewhat modified to work off of the LFO v2 chip. I’ve tried to keep the component labeling consistent with the Tonepad schematic to make things a bit easier when adding mods etc. And again, I’ve left the “Multiplier” and “Waveform” pots in there, but the […]
I wanted to try out a different tap-tempo tremolo circuit and compare, this one loosely based on the Tremulus Lune. And again, using the ATtiny85 LFO v2. I’ve successfully breadboarded it so the schematic should be good. Layout to come soon. Update (19.02.2014): Reoriented the Depth pot in the schematic. And here’s a layout too. […]
I’m checking in today posting a layout for just another dirt box. This one, however, seemed a bit more interesting than your average tube screamer; or at least the schematic did. I’m not sure how this thing is going to sound, but hopefully it’ll work at least. There are a few unknowns, specifically the MOSFET […]
And here’s the logical follow-up to version 2 of the tap-tempo chip; version 2 of the tap-tempo Trembulator. By the way, since it’s no longer looking much like a trembulator I decided to name it just tremolo. Again, this is with a 5-way selector switch to set the tempo multiplier, and a simple 2-way […]
I know a few of you have been asking for pre-programmed tap-tempo controllers, and over the last week I’ve been working on realizing this. In the main menu above you’ll now find a link to a small store with a limited number of said chip. Now, I anticipate some growing pains in the beginning, but […]
