A Pulse width
modulator, under the control of a LFO, whose speed is modulated
by an Envelope follower when 2nd stomp is engaged.
Controls include Pulse- width, Depth, Speed, Envelope
sensitivity, Pre-gain, and Volume. Very Robotic,
synthetic, and noisy............. Can be used
without modulation as filtered noisy distortion. When used
before a chorus, sounds VERY synth-like........
Full on Black
Sabbath wooly fuzz, with a switchable mid notch, but not
as thin as the usual Metal sounds......Really thick dark fuzz.
Kind of a two trick pony, but fantastic at what it does.
With the Highs rolled off via tone knob, it gets muddy pretty
quick, but when the highs are full up, is much less 'hashy' then
big muff pi.....its smoother
your pre-set banks
This plugs into your line 6
modeler (dl4,fm4,ds4 etc...) through the EXP jack input.
In one stomp position, you have your normal 3 or 4 memory
pre-sets. stomp on this switcher, and you have a whole new
set of banks that work just the same way. Now the 2
presets that share a stomp (on line6) will switch back and forth
(with this box) in real time, without 'resetting'. This is
3 separate switches for a guy who uses 3 line6ers. battery
is only for the LED, and will actually work fine with no power.
I Really just threw the noisy bits of all my favorite noisy pedals
into one box, with no regard to taste or tone, rhyme or reason,
and got utter non-sense.
Who would have thought...........

Like the original Clone Theory, It has an "echo flange" switch,
but here its a stomp. This is the big brother of the Small
Clone, and has much better control. The flange switch has
a resonance control associated with the mode, and goes into very
rich chorus. There is a control to shift the delay time,
making more or less pitch-shift. Also, Speed, Depth, and a
Blend knob. (chorus/vibrato) This chorus goes from machine gun
warbles to barely there background swirl, and every shade
follower uses playing dynamics to run two very flexible high-Q
filters. When used traditionally the effect screams funk,
or worse..disco. With some tweaking and expansion to
parameter control, you have a swirly swishy sweeping resonance
machine affording a wide array of weird textures and sounds,
from subtle to eerie. The follower controls are Sensitivity,
attack, decay, and a frequency range switch. Each filter
has cut-off freq, resonance, and freq. shift switch......
Parallel processing is a really great way
to get interesting new effects from your existing equipment.
Ideal for Bass players as a clean/effect mixer to breath some
low end into effects primarily made for guitar. Can also be used
to blend Any two Effects or chains, and both sides see the
signal and do their processing independently. This can be
a great answer to "which comes first?" pedal chain situations.
Great for blending OD and Fuzz for the best of both worlds.
endless uses really...............
A really nice distortion, modified
from original to allow both higher gain, and harsher distortion
if desired. Controls are Pre-Gain, Volume, and clean
blend, along with Bass and Treble controls, and a Mid-Notch/Peak
knob. Also I added a 'hash' switch, that lets the high end signal
break up a bit more, which I though was the pedals only real
weakness....................this does well with a serial boost
on a separate stomp switch.
Trem Brulee-w/ full
never met a tremolo I liked until I built this one. Along with
Depth and Speed, come controls for Gap width, Square Wave to
Sine wave blend, and ramp up wave or ramp down wave. I
have been putting a resistive LFO out jack on these for use in
control of many other pedal effect parameters. For
instance, when used in the place of Delay time in the digi-log,
you can get anything from vibrato/chorus to full blown
non-sense. really could be used to sweep just about
Octave down Provides
one octave down with volume, and a second adjustable divider
that will divide by 3,4,5,6,7 or 8, with separate volume control
for that signal. The circuit tracks quite well for an
analog fundamental extractor, and the compression
characteristics let the signal fade out just before input
becomes too small to track, which is the flip-flop between
fundamental and octave down upon decay of a note with typical
octave dividers. Also a switch for clean blend, and for
distorting the Op-amps.
modified Rat that includes clipping stages from classic, turbo,
and brat models, along with a Tube-Screamer style
clip stage, or no diode clipping for HUGE BOOST, or Op-Amp
clipping. Also, there is some added frequency response
control. Much more control here than your average ProCo
Rat, but similar sounds are available. Could easily have
clean blend for use with
with controls for
the oscillator frequency, and an envelope follower to shift
pitch. Gate allows generated tone to take over when
sustain dies, or sets both signals to stop together, and the
noise stomp allows both signals to exist separately, yet not
quite independently, resulting in glitches and gurgles and the
like, leaning toward one signal or the other, depending on
position of blend........
Plug-in for sound clips may only work in MS Internet explorer......Sorry
OVER IMAGES FOR DEMO, CLICK BUTTONS FOR SOUNDCLIPS....LINKS ABOVE SHOULD WORK
SOUND CLIPS WILL WORK ALL AT THE SAME TIME, USE 'REFRESH' TO STOP THE CHAOS..OR DON'T
