Error Machine

Postby LaoWiz » Thu Jun 14, 2018 3:49 pm

About time to wipe some dust from this tank! Started to learn Eagle and made my first fabricated PCBs. The boards just showed up to my office this morning and will start to build one tonight. Hopefully they work.

The Error Machine is basically a Fox Tone Machine with an extra footswitch for turning off and on the octave up. Both the octave up and straight fuzz modes have their own separate tone controls. I'm also adding in a rotary switch that gives a choice of 7 different clipping options. The above build with the toggle is my personal one, toggle doesn't do much so leaving it out of the equation.

Made 10 boards so hope to make more than a few to be available for anyone that is interested in the nearish future!

Hey thanks guys! I built the board over the weekend and when I tested it yesterday I was a bit disappointed as the signal was fuzzy but really low. I realized shortly that I labeled one of the resistors in my Eagle schematic the wrong value and when I swapped that out today I got some full bore brutal fuzz :!!!:

I have a couple of trimpots on the board to do some fine tuning. Didn't think they would do much as I hadn't experimented with this before but they are actually pretty helpful. Overall, sounds super brutal and extremely happy with the final result!

I'll need to get this fella who has this recent incarnation to give me a link with it on bass. He had sent it awhile back but I can't find it. Unfortunately, I don't have a bass or bass setup to test with. I'll see if he can pop by to give it a review!
