Btw, in the final design you have the depth of the effect controllable by an LDR?
You could do a zvex probe style antenna too :P  And then I mean, isolated Jacks and use the enclosure as antenna  :icon_idea:

i tried various types of sensors..including the 'proximity' control, i just couldnt get on with them, plus having to have a seperate isolated board etc..

i tried IR ones too...but all had plus and minus points to them..so ive settled for a manual control of the wah option.

the depth comes off the ldr, so does a switch and a pot to turn off ldr and go to manual filter control....half wah sustaining sound...i tried writing %^&*ed wah but it wont let me!.. :icon_mrgreen:

What type of wah circuit are you using? inductorless? transistor? opamp?

inductorless. opamp. morley classic wah.

i tried the coloursound...little to weak imo.

edit:

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my head...working out this @#$%ing switching... :icon_twisted:

almost there....a few whisky's should do it.. :icon_wink:

this is a really cool idea, I want to make one! I never thought i'd make a wah because of the hardware difficulties.

Man, this thing sounds awesome, great job man,
Do you have a Pcb and layout yet, I want to build

not yet!..i got bored today , so i decided to etch my box and give my brain a day off!...

but at least now i have the box done, i'll have to get on with it!!! :icon_rolleyes: :icon_mrgreen:

@rick , no you didnt miss it, havent done schemo properly yet!. its in 3 seperate parts at the moment!..

i'm working on the switching today...will post up later if all works like i want it too...


@ask, yep you could add an expression pedal option too..i already though about that.!... :icon_wink:

but for now i'm keeping it simple.and pedalboard friendly, if thats the right word for this @#$%ing   @#$%  of a circuit!... :icon_rolleyes:

i'm used to doing 'tiny ' ones....so bear with me ok.. :icon_wink:


hold fire guys!!!...hold........hold.........hold.....!..(braveheart!)... :icon_mrgreen:

...got the switching sussed...looks weird but it works ok.

the wah is no problem..standard morley classic (though it could do with a touch more freq/range ok.) we'll get back to that!..

anyway here is the 'pulse' part of it...with switching..it works on my breadboard with the 2 switches this way...

i apologise for the dodgy vero..but thats just for now ok!...while i get my head round it.. :icon_wink:

so to put it simply, the wah goes into the ldr..which pulses/fades on off... the pulse/trem has a speed and depth too...but not the manual wah, just the pulsing wah has depth control...

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my head hurts!!!!!!!... :P.

Can't wait to see it complete, the second video really impressed me!
My to-do list is getting longer  :icon_biggrin:

Thanks deadastronaut!
