I am finding some weird behavior with my diy orange squeezer clone. It sits on a breadboard currently, until I finish tweaking the circuit.
Initially after building it, I just threw it in front of a small chain of pedals, but then later when adjusting the trimpot I isolated it.
that's when I noticed virtually no change between bypassed and engaged.
So I put my Boss DS-1 after it, and all of a sudden there is a difference between bypassed and engaged - like a bit of a treble boost and the compression.
Is this something to do with the non-true bypass of the DS-1? It is a noticeable and consistent difference with or without the DS-1 in the chain. And strange that when hooked up alone I cannot detect a sonic difference (I mean like the percussive sound of the compressed guitar and the other subtle sonic changes you hear in a compressor. I can detect some slight compression - in that if I setup the amp settings to get just a tiny bit of breakup when bypassed, the engaged, compressed signal does not break up. Make sense?
Any thoughts appreciated.
