I reckon it'd be cooler to build this instead:
* take one 4069 hex inverter...
* use one inverter for a cmos boost...
* use two more inverters for Tim Escobedo's Calavera...
* extent the bias trimmers to the top of the box...

Bada-bing, you've got yerself a Hex Machine! :o

I'm very sorry to see your work posted up Zachary, but you are suffering the same fate as me and thousands of other "writers" and "producers" of music, ie: somewhere on the net you can find EVERYTHING and usualy are able to download it for nothing.........Limewire, Kazaa  etc etc etc
I guess thats "progress"  eh ??

I think you've designed some of the coolest stompers around, so I hope the sales are not damaged by stuff like this,  just my 2 pence worth :D
Respect,
Marty.

Looks like a buncha Lyco's ads with popups to me.

I just realised that'd be the same as any other 3 stage cmos distortion (except for the biasing method).  It's late.

Hopefully they caught it in time...

  The last one I saw wasn't really a FF or anything else, it stayed in Schmes II for a time.

I'm just curious if there's any empirical evidence that the availability of the schematic for a particular effect unit has any real effect on sales.  It seems to me that a schematic and a premade unit address two relatively distinct markets.  Granted, there's definitely some overlap, but it strikes me that most of the people who buy Zvex boxes (and units from just about any other manufacturer) are not the kind of people who build their own boxes.

Any thoughts Zachary, Paul (of Frostwave), or any other volume commercial manufacturers?

Why is it that newbies don't bother to read the "About this Forum" sticky thread before posting?

Ah! I see.  My apologies for being testy CD.

Puretube - good point.  The exposure to commercial builders didn't occur to me.

Yup I was referring to the original post.  Had ATK read all the FAQs and lurked the forum for a while (and of course, done a search) the answers would have been obvious.  Which is not to say that newbies should not ask questions, but since this has been hashed over on this board dozens of times, I can only see the post as ignorant or inflammatory.
