Patchable Guitar/Synth Pedal

Not a bit crusher, it’s a synth emulator

The pedal has six knob controls – Sub, Down 1, Up 1, Filter, Level and Base.

The push.pull pedal is a synth effect based upon the PLL (Phase Locked Loop) IC, in which the PLL has been “unlocked” and let loose through joysticks, switches, and a pushbutton. It is hard to describe the sounds I have already heard: distorted, glitchy, fuzz, bass synth, drone, full of clicks, 8 bit, and erratic synthetic hyperdrive.

4 Non-Return to Center Joysticks
A green LED pushbutton that “unlocks” the pedal, allowing it to spiral out of control.
4 switches:
Capacitor Envelope (Slow, Slower, Bypass)
High/Low Tone Select
Feedback Select (Audio, Voltage, Bypass)
True Bypass
Painted in Blurple Colorshift and coated in a thick bar top-type epoxy

Low profile aluminum enclosure

It’s an analog synthesizer controlled by a sensofoil ribbon controller

Tourette pedal
Taking orders

Here is my hand made Tourettes pedal, so called because you just don’t quite know what’s going to come out the other end. The best way to describe it is Weird/Fuzz/Octave/Noise/Randomizer.

The output sound is determined by the level and frequency of the input, so rolling off the guitar’s volume or tone control changes the way the pedal processes the sound.

The lower the note, the more synth like tone. Bass guitar works particularly well. The higher notes generate either arpeggiated runs based on the original note or octave overtones.

Tourettes is a low current consuming battery powered stomp box with 1 output level control, an input connection on the right, and output connection on the left, and a heavy duty bypass switch.
