Good to know

Oh... oops didn’t know...

side of R3

The R2 is the correct value, as for R1, it is a 15K, since I don’t have a 12K
R7 is a 10K, you might just not be able to see it, and R5 is an 82k with a 100K soldered on top to make ~182K also FYI R3 is 4 100Ks with a 62K or something like that with some heat shrink tubing on it.

I recently tried to build a guitar fx pedal from freestompboxes.org And can’t get it to work. I want to know if the direction of the resistors matter. I really want to get this to work, so plz help

Here is the Schematic:

Here is what i built

In that case I might just let it sit for another while

Thanks everyone!

Yeah... I plugged the output of my laptops preamp into it, and the alesis into the amp... and it made clicking noises and the computer crashed and had to reboot...

Also I don’t have a di box or an amo with an effects loop, so...

... I have low expectations for that, but most anything’s worth a shot... I’ll try it

Hey everyone, a while ago I picked up an Alesis midiverb ii at a local thrift store, and I can’t seem to get it to work properly. It’s mix knob seems to be creating a lot of noise, and I read somewhere that this might be because I’m plug in the guitar directly into the alesis instead of using a preamp to get the gain lower, therefore less noise. Ive read a lot of stuff from different places but I can’t seem to get it to work I haven’t tried using a preamp yet but when I plug the guitar in, the green signal LED doesn’t want to turn on no matter how high I turn the input knob up. I can get sound to come through to my amp but none of the effects ever work and it just seems to work like a crappy amplifier.

This thing cost me around two dollars and I know how valuable it is so I’d really like to get it working
Any help is much appreciated thanks!

Hey guys I am somewhat new to the whole stripboard thing,

and really want to know where to get the biggest stripboard or something around 25 rows down since I am trying to make the LMNC CEM/AS3340 and I have all the parts, but I just ran out of my last piece of stripboard (not that it was big enough anyway neutral)

Schematic: here

any help would be awesome!

so technically i could just throw a pot on the VCC and it would act as a VCO? cause i guess that's what i'm going for, but i would be cool to have it controlled by a potentiometer, so you can make the pulses quicker and such...

i was also wondering if you had a higher res image so i could actually see whats going on?
and where do you find a through hole 4066 switch? cause i don't want to solder a smd one smile

thanks a bunch

i've recently been getting into circuit bending, and have kept wondering how i would add a stutter switch like some i've seen. Thinking about it kind of made my brain hurt as 13 year olds don't have a lot of those : ) some ideas i have are: 1. maybe just a momentary SPDT  toggle switch, 2. an adjustable LFO that times the button pushes but the delay between pulses are controlled by a potentiometer, 3. maybe just an Arduino nano using the PWM pins with a pot doing the same thing. You also might be able to achieve the 2nd idea by using a 555 timer, which might just be my best bet.
