Ok thanks a lot. I've got a problem, i can't find the components. I'll have to wait until my dad goes to USA or a friend, he's a pilot  that's why :P


Do you know the difficulty grade of this project, or anyone that finished it to ask for it, or for pics?


Thanks a lot


Bye bye

As Peter said if you read the whole thread you'll find answers to most of your questions including pictures.

Hi, wow - that's a great looking project, nice one metalguy!

How much did it cost you to make in total?

Would you be able to post a link to the PCB layout in PDF form (hopefully to scale)? Thanks

Allied is out of the suggested encoder.

Do you think that this is a suitable alternative?
Digikey part # - CT3003-ND
Its described as a "ROTARY ENCODER 4 BIT GREY CODE"

I don't have it in PDF form but you can scale it down in Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro or similar by setting the resolution to 600dpi.
Hope this helps.

Here's the pdf I made.

* Make sure that scaling is off when you print

Glad I could help!

Does anyone know if Digikey part # - CT3003-ND will work for the encoder?

Allied isnt getting another shipment of the honeywells until Feb 7th.

Thanks!

hello i'm fabricio from france
thank to pure tube who send me some chipset
thank to metalguy who designed the pcb
femtoverb is working. nice job. I just want the reverb preset so i use the rotary switch method (good idee work perfectly)
just one probleme : there is a "plop" when i switch on the pedal. What wrong ?

from a look at the layout in reply#9
it seems that the input cap is floating.
(can`t find the schemo)

a so called pulldown resistor (1M) from input to ground will probably work.

The final correct layout is Reply #48.

that one also got input cap floating.
solder 1M from input pad to ground.

According to the schematic the 1M resistor after the input cap connects to Vr, not to ground and it's exactly where it connects now.

but before the input cap?
(where popping originates).

There's no such on the schematic but if you want to add one it's OK.

ok - after waiting half an hour for the board to get back to life
and going through 50 replies
and the search function
I finally found the schematic drawing:
http://dstockett.50megs.com/femtoverb.gif

It`s not just "OK" to add a pulldown resistor at the input,
but "a must" IMHO.

you`re not to blame for that, MetalGuy, BTW.
