I was looking at Morley's at first (I like the way they look  :icon_cool:), but then I discovered that they're optical. That would mean a major mod of the casing and treadle to mount the pot. I decided to go the way of the K.I.S.S. road, and got a Dunlop pedal instead. Finding the pots was a bonus.

When I build the PII clone, it'll probably be a Dunlop pedal, and a Hammond box, joined together. Or, everything sqeezed into a Morley casing. The third option is rack mounting, with just the treadle, and footswitches on the floor via MIDI. Either way, it's going to be tighter than a frog's ass... and that's water-tight!

i'm just waiting to see what you guys come up with, and going from there!
i like the idea of midi control, but that seems like it'll be a major pia!!

but man...it'd be hip to assign a bunch of different controllers to it.. i mean, say ya used a cheap behringer fcb1010...

volume, and formant/wah pedals, and a plethora of controllers to use!! that'd be sweet!!!

or...make it so ya can call up presets?!?!?!?!?

oh man...don't get me started!!!!  :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:

Ummm... hate to get you wound up bro, but check out;

http://highlyliquid.com/midi-decoders/mpa/

and

http://highlyliquid.com/midi-decoders/msa-r/

I know, I know.... real pricey. But, they work amazingly well. I've already used the MSA-R relay unit. I made my first MIDI loop switcher with it. Had it rack mounted, with an old X-15 footcontroller to control it. I'm not using them anymore, so I've got that for the switching. If I get the MPA, then I'm racking the Vocalizer and the PII.

BTW, I'm kinda, sorta in your neck o' the woods next weekend. My son's got a baseball camp near Pittsfield Mass., up in the Berkshires. 3 glorious day of baseball, shopping, food, beer, and baseball.
Gonna be good to tune out for a few days!

any idea where the hell i can find an empty crybaby? don't really wanna shell out 50 bucks to smallbear...i'm kicking myself cuz i threw away two of 'em when i moved last year, never thought i'd have any use for 'em!!
You're not the only musician that trashed a wah instead of repairing it. This has become much, much harder since the DIY effect movement got off the ground and started flying, but I once made the rounds of the repair shops here in town and got 8 broken wah pedals. Six were free, two cost me $5 each. They were lying in the "dead, never picked up" bin at the repair shop. It's worth a few calls or a minor road trip. Go see the repair man himself, don't dicker with the counter help; explain you're a mad scientist and you want a rocker for controlling your robot or something.  :icon_biggrin:

ACES!!! I received mine the other day from AML. Very nice, but pricier. But, they've got the flat on the shaft, just like the Dunlop pots for the gear. I think that's what really attracted me to them, less mucking about to fit the gear.

Great find though. Nothing a Dremel can't mod to fit.

I just looked up this pedal and found absolutely nothing. The first result when I Googled it was this forum. Is there anyplace I can hear it? Or do I just have to wait for the clone?

From what I've read on the net, it's a variant of the Dipthonizer (sorta), that you can sweep through vowels with.

That's it. Nothing more. Except some pics. Kinda like the Sasquatch. Heard he's got a long shaft as well  :icon_mrgreen: (resistance was futile).

Guess if the last one I saw on the Bay went for 1200$, there must be SOMETHING special about it. And I didn't even see a long shaft in the gut shots, so go figure...

that's cuz ya gotta play with it a little to see what it's all about... :icon_mrgreen:

there...now I couldn't resist!!

seems like the mouthmeister and the coloursound may be an interesting combo!!

i re-visited my ugly face again last nite...

if i could only run the sucker on a walwart, it would live on my pedalboard!!

tried adding a 100mf cap to the power jack...no dice.  on a side note, i wrote tim escobedo thanking him for the circuit snippets, and he wrote back!
seemed like a nice guy. ;)

I've never made a pedal that would take a battery, power supply only. With the mass of pedals I've got, I'd need to buy stock in Union Carbide to stay afloat. Those daisy chain power supplies work great for me, 8 pedals to a ps, except for 1 or 2 + gnd pedals, which run their own.

I'm telling you bro, I get a strange feeling that Mr. Ugly into a Mouthmiestor will equal Ludwig, or damn close to it.

GOD DAMN I HOPE MY GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE SELLS SOON, SO WE CAN BUY A BIGGER PLACE, AND I CAN UNPACK ALL MY GEAR!!!!!

But, I digress. I'm gonna go pop a pill now.

one pill to get larger, or one to get small?

ya know you're REALLY small when ya can fit inside the breathalyzer tube!!

lol

i got the dual concentric 500k pot today...it even had the knobs, cost me .99c plus shipping!!

i think an ugly face and mouthmeister/vocalizer may get real close.

but...

question...if ya hook a 100mf cap across the power supply to kill noise, right at the ps jack, i mean, which of the three terminals are ya SUPPOSED to use, anyways? on some of my builds, it seems to want it across the positive, some the positive to neg, some from neg to ground...man, am i confused!!

guess i better ask the forum!! ;)
