Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

How very much things change!

A BBD-based chorus would today be advertised as "analog" and much blather based on it not having an A-D and D-A converter. In reality both techniques will have sampling noise and heterodyning. The real digital version will have quantization noise, which can be mostly digitally suppressed.

Funny.

The music world seems to be a three-way race between the princess and the pea, the blind men and the elephant, and the emperor's new clothes.

The clock looks similar to the CE-1.

Was this the beginning of "Boss FET switching"

Change this clock to a monostable configuration for the now famous and widely repeated switching.
I just designed a new fuzz circuit! It almost sounds a little different than the last fifty fuzz circuits I designed! ;)
