Hello
my english is not good and after reading the 45 pages I'm a little confused
This PCB is correct?

Hi

Yes that PCB is correct.

This is not an echo base anymore, but it was based on it, using the PWM output of a PIC 16F684 instead of the LFO. Please let me know what you think, or any suggestions on how to improve it's functionality.

Brief explanation:
Left Led (red) - tempo indicator.
Red and Green led - binary sequence that shows the current mode selection:
 00 - Tempo and Load preset 1
 01 - multiplier and Load preset 2
 10 - mod speed and Save preset 1
 11 - mod depth and Save preset 2

One button is for tap tempo, the second cycles through the 4 modes, and the third saves or loads a preset depending on which mode is selected.
The values are changed with a rotary encoder. The other two knobs are for the delay feedback and level.

When the unit is turned on, it loads preset 1.

I just built mine up from Taylors PCB.
A big thank you to all involved, Slacker, Taylor. This is a great delay/modulation effect. Mine fired up first go, except for the fact that I had wired all pots in reverse, but 10 minutes later it was doing what it should. An excellent pedal! Cheers again!

Just out of curiosity, I can use a 1N5819 schottky as a protection diode, right?

or will bad things happen to me if I put in an opposite-polarity jack?  :icon_evil:

Should be fine. Probably even better than a silicon, because of the lower forward drop of a Schottky.

Nice. I can finally populate it

Thanks!

Hey, just getting onto the Echo Base boat here. I was reading through some of the older pages, but some links are broken. Anyone have the diagram for an effects loop on the Echo Base?

Also, is a dual PT2399 mod here possible? What about Tap Tempo? I understand the PTAP isn't being used any more, unfortunately...

I'm not sure about the PT2399 double up but I think it was mentioned in this thread that it is possible. ALso, there is a kit Aron sells (STORE link at the top of the forum page) called Taptation which is a tap tempo add-on for PT2399 circuits.

I remember looking there before I bought a PCB from Taylor, and not seeing any.
Double checked just now, I don't see them in stock anymore. :(

There's a double time mod that me and Valoosj did, the discussion about it starts on page 8 of this thread, there's a schematic and a layout.

For info about fx loops have a look at my post here http://www.electro-music.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39579&postorder=asc&start=375

Yeah, for some reason it's not on there anymore. Odd.

Awesome, thanks slacker!

If only I could get tap tempo now haha...maybe someone has an extra board...

ran into a weird one today. I have an echobase build from taylor's pcb. I found out with the echobase off if I put my amp into standby mode and strum the guitar quick.
When I put the amp out of standby mode, the echobase generates white noise.
Until I unplug its power and plug it back in.
I'm guessing the issue is with the buffer...any one else run into this?

I would like download PCB from http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/anonymousfacelesscoward/19192939.html but I can't save this PCB to ORYGINAL Size. How to download this pcb in PDF file ? ofcourse to oryginal and appropriate size for all elements. If someone give me this PDF I will be really grateful! Greetings

Those files don't come out of DIY layout creator with the correct sizing. Resize the layout to 200.25 dpi and it will print marvelously.

this brings me to the question...

why do we always have to resize?....surely this breaks up/squares/pixelates the image, ???

or is it down to the author...hmmmmm.....you would think it was ready to print on a pdf eh?.. ::)

1) it's a lot easier to code an export to gif than pdf.
2) when you resize to a smaller image, there is no pixelation. that's only going to happen when enlarging.

I personally use bullzip pdf printer to print a lot of my layout work straight to pdf from express, but that's a lot to expect of someone providing free layouts...

perhaps you are looking the gift horse in the mouth a bit?   :icon_smile:
