Quad Sequential Switch file:   quadsequentialswitch.pdf 000002   1/21/101 2:10 am
This is a sequential switch, which will allow you to repeatedly step on a momentary switch and cycle through several selections. The article explains all.

Rocktave Divider file:   rocktave.pdf 000001   1/21/101 2:07 am
This is a scan of the "Build the Rocktave" article that Craig Anderton had in GP in the early 80's. I find it to be an extremely reliable octave divider, in terms of tracking, and no slouch with respect to tone. Get the 18" speakers out, mother; they're reviving the movie "Earthquake"! Just a word of caution about that article. The PC-mask is likely not exactly to scale. You may have to tweak the size a bit at your end for PnP or other forms of board construction. The PDF also includes the followup article which describes use of a 4017 counter to add other intervals, plus some other mods. For the most part, fairly legible. The crucial parts are clear however.

Guitar pad file:   Guitar_pad.mp3 000092   5/19/2010 12:12 AM
Ethereal guitar sound made by plugging into a Craig Anderton Bi-Filter Follower, then into a PAiA Gator, then a Boss DM-3 clone modded with a hi-cut filter in the feedback path. The phasing effect is added digitally with Audacity, but everything up to that point is analog.

A trip back to the park - adventures in re-echo file:   Re-echo.wma 000091   1/30/2009 2:26 AM
The Line 6 Echo Park comes with two inputs and outputs. While not true stereo, the unit allows for some interesting cross-recirculation and reprocessing possibilities.

The soundclip illustrates two of the possibilities. It starts out with a short riff using the "reverse" program in the normal way. I have it panned 100% wet so you only hear the reverse. From there it switches to a re-echo whereby I plug into A, run A output back to B input, and send B output to the amp. You can hear a lovely shifting overlapping sound. Note as well that when you reverse what has already been reversed, you get it forwards again...sort of. Really interesting texture.

The second half of the sample illustrates the same once, then twice, processing of the "sweep" program. This is a program in the Echo Park that imposes a kind of wah sweep on each iteration. You'll hear it normally (again, 100% wet to emphasize the sweep), and then reprocessed. Note the lovely rhythmic emphasis feel to it. Also note that I have simply hit one note to produce all that.

Apologies for the buzzing. That's what you get when you record with single coils in front of a CRT monitor in a room with fluorescent lights. The fuzz is a Jack Orman Mos-Face; a variant of a Fuzz Face but with a mosfet transistor.
