found the HM-2 in this.

there are different ways, the bandpass got pretty close, but going full bore on the fucker gets the closest so far;

pentode
max gain on everything (clipping, gain 2 and 3)
max starve (means clockwise, fully, to clip it even more)

almost max bass, almost max treble. Go to full and then back it off to suitable sound.
Bass input down (so a bit of bass clip) for that chug. for fatness no clipping.

notch filter, slight resonance, try it in FIRST and SECOND stage, cutoff around 11 o clock (play around with it).

There's your HM-2, without a japanese boss hm-2 sitting right next to me and trying to get as close as possible to nails/black breath etc.

Thick and grindy, and each of the FM settings add either spitty or choked sounds (that's what those two extra footswitches do..)

Also I might've taken it apart and sandblasted it and the knobs. Relic'd/80's-ified

Damn... idk if that's really cool or if I want to cry for it. It's definitely a commitment.

Well eventually it's going to DannyW for a full face-lift. But I'm loving the relic'd look for now.

Footswitches for the FM is a great mod! I'm more into the original sparkles but you do you :lol:

Maybe this weekend I'll hook up the demo stuff in our lil room here. Haven't made a video in a hot minute...but holy moly. I set the base sound thick but not toooooo dirty, and then as long as a gain and FM are at a decent level, each footswitch acts like a different momentary fuzztone. HELLA FUN. There goes my GAS for a Fuck (well, not entirely)...

Thanks dudes :) your patience shall be rewarded

so what happens when you press both switches? does the FM cancel out?

Sometimes. And sometimes it goes dead quiet..depends on settings obv. So with that, I can have the toggle set one way and stomp to unfuck it (sometimes)

..I can't figure out how Bri has the stomp+toggle configured to fuck/unfucks on the Fuck OF..so this works! :p

I'd like to control the frequency with an expression pedal, but options seem to be limited. Any suggestions?
Also, has anyone tried this: https://koma-elektronik.com/?product=kommander

I haven't ever tried that, but it will surely accomplish your goal of using an external expression device to control the frequency.
