I just picked up a CC v3 and have noticed something similar but I didn't connect the dots between the CC and the pretty years. I do run my pretty years towards the end of my chain but It will usually go away after I bypass the CC a few times :idk:

It is likely hetrodyning. This can happen with BBD based pedals, which are noisy as shit, and they are pretty heavily filtered, and have their PCBs very carefully designed to reduce the risk for such noise. I know Ryan spent a loooooong time working on getting the CCv3 as quiet as possible. I discovered the problem running it after my Randy's Revenge, I think. So basically there isn't a lot you can do, it's just two noisy pedals pissing each other off. Try putting them in a different order, or putting a buffered pedal between them.


Yeah I just moved the CC to front of my chain and it seems to have fixed the issue, Thanks!


So the CC to the front of the chain and the PY at the end?


I put my CC third in my chain after reverb and overdrive. I have my PY going into my looper and then the bitquest at the end of my chain. Moving them them apart seems to have helped with the noise or at least the noise coming off the CC.

That's really what this is all about. Self-fulfillment via audio manipulation. Brian is a saint.

There is really no other piece of gear I want other than a second Pretty Years. I just want them sitting on my mix bus

What's the answer to this question? I had some room somehow so I put this back on the board and it doesn't like the VL PP2+. It just turns itself on and off and on and off and..................

Been searching for the answer this morning, can't find anything.

I've powered mine with the 250mA tap from my pp2+. The normal 100mA taps probably aren't enough.

I thought 5 and 6 were 150ma? Either way, my PY doesn't like it

I'm guessing it's between 150-200 mA. I can split a 300 mA port on a Cioks DC5 and power both the PY and a Tonal Recall (150 mA) just fine. I'm willing to bet, though, that the Tonal Recall only needs that much current to boot up and then uses less in operation.

Seriously considering a tube preamp pedal as my next gear purchase. I wish Pretty Years was an option. :joy:

guys.....GUYS..... I finally tried it. I knew you could do it. you can use the PY as a synth :!!!:

NO INPUT on these clips. first one is straight V/O out the sv-1, second is an oscillator being FM'd by another FM'd oscillator :joy: EUREKA!!

I knew it! Now to tune all the knobs and find the spot where it corresponds to 1v/oct (or tune the cv coming in.. hmm)

Yea, all in all I've been using Pretty Years as a sound source CV sequenced by my sq-1. My gas for a second won't let up
