1.  The Swear Jar:  an envelope detector triggers the replacement of the normal audio with a 1kHz "bleep" (optionally a different, more musical frequency).  Bonus points for a remotely-activated design, especially one that could work with a microphone.

Could be fun to implement one of those record/playback modules and have pre-recorded swear words inserted into the signal path at sporadic intervals.

We might have to change the name to Tourette's, maybe make it a talk-box....

Idea:  An op amp circuit that saturates with modulated power rail voltages.  (I suppose it doesn't have to be an op amp, but it was an op amp datasheet that sparked the idea.)

I did something like this, only the opamp acts as the power rail:

I did exactly this with a slightly warped definition of modulation...
Basically connected a resistor to the power supply of an MXR micro amp (modded for extra gain). Classic "dead battery" circuit.
As the output changes, the circuit uses more power and therefore the opamp's supply changes with respect to the output signal. Just on the verge of oscillation you can get an octave down effect!

I could make a demo...

Threw one of these together to replicate the intro to One of These Days on the strat while using the tremolo arm.

3rd Floyd reference of the day here for me.

the intro is two basses, gilmour on one side, waters on the other. beaucoup binson echorec applied!!

the tremolo part i bet it would work tho ;)

Woah interesting! I've tried recreating many of their effects - even a backwards wired wah for the end of Echoes. I've gotta look into that a bit more.

It was when I was first messing with LDRs. I had a friend frantically switch the lights on and off with the fuzzed up signal going through only an LDR on breadboard. Must have looked like a poltergeist from the outside. Eventually I threw one together with a tremolo circuit but parted with it.

Said it before and I'll say it again, the neighbors love me  :icon_lol:

Sounds like you more or less manually did what my Creaky Floor circuit does (see the second demo video in particular):

I suppose you could use an optocoupler (minimal part count) to modulate the supply voltage of anything with the input signal  :icon_twisted:

It isn't a pedal so there  :P

Ah call it HUGE KNOB and literally have a really giant knob...

I'm now thinking if I should use a 1590A and put a giant knob on it. Boost pedal or something.

The largest knob I can get is about 50mm... big enough?  (Ordered a 45mm knob together with pedal parts stuff, i realized a 1590A is only 36mm and this is going to be so comically oversized)

At that point you should just call it "The Knob"  :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol:
