Help! Vote on distortion knob here...

I like knobs! Sometimes I like to turn the amount of distortion right down.

A 'Hi/Lo' distortion switch would be fine for me.

No distortion pot - make the pedal sound its best, fix it there, and keep it simple - and cheaper!

Very exciting new pedal from Rainger FX

Postby D-Rainger » Mon Sep 24, 2012 12:42 pm

I'm just finishing off the Air Traffic Controller - a white noise generator which also has a distortion circuit you play through. The two signals (hiss, and dirty guitar) are mixed together and put through a low pass filter (with tons of resonance available). The cut-off frequency is decided by the note envelope (like a touch wah), or by note pitch, or in a random way.

It sounds kind of synthy - but from a totally different point of view of most synth pedals...think fusion soloing, or chords with an interesting tone 'edge' to them, and can also make sonar pings of pure white noise. At the moment I spend a fair amount of time playing Kraftwerk's 'Autobahn' through it. But hey - that just me.

Controls are 'resonance', 'air-signal' (mixer), and 'volume', plus a 3-way rotary switch for the different cut-off frequency control methods.

I've really not seen anything else around like it. I've spent a good while blending the guitar signal with the white noise to bind them together - definitely best with distortion on.
So do you really need a distortion knob? I'm not sure I'd ever touch it...

So it's looking like I should have a 'distortion' pot in. Thanks for the feedback!

That's pretty nifty! My favorite setting on the Fuzz Factory did that if you had everything set just right, and this is a whole pedal of ssssqqqqqqqqqquuuuuuusssssssssssshhhhhhhhh! Putting the distortion on a knob was definitely the way to go!
