So, I don't know if this belongs in the custom thread or if it should get its own thing, but I think it's badass enough to warrant a topic.

Behold, the (shitty smartphone pic of) the Thujone Extract!

A little while back, I asked Tom about making me a pedal of the oscillating side of the Ab-Synth, so I could participate in the feedback freakouts with my guitar players. Being Tom, he wasn't content with just doing that, so he added a filter, and a whole new little circuit (the "Atonal Bleep Feeder"), as well as controls for fuzz, oscillation and "Trip." It's pretty amazing. You can blend the Atonal Bleep Feeder in so it just adds a bit of textural/rhythmic complexity to the oscillation, or let it take over completely. "Trip" seems to fine-tune the oscillation, and the filter is pretty wild - I don't know if it's a straight LPF or what, but it can take the whole thing from burbly noises to all-out screams.

Oh, and nice guy that he is, Tom made it take up to 18v, cuz that's the only slot I've got left on my Pedal Power. The Thujone seems to work fine at 9v, too.

Also, I asked that Tom give it a momentary switch, since I'm mostly using it for short freakouts. But now that I've played with it, I'm thinking I might need to commission a full Ab-Synth - the fuzz on this thing is MONSTROUS!!!!!

OH! And it's got little lights on the side that flash in time to the Atonal Bleep Generator!

DO WANT!!!

I love the oscillator on the ab-synth. Mines set to bleep-grrr-bzzzzzzzzzzzz-bleep-grrr-bzzzzzzzzzzzz-bleep-grrr-bzzzzzzzzzzzz-bleep-grrr-bzzzzzzzzzzzz...

It's so awesome!

Had a blast making this! I think I'm going to have to make it a secret-custom-build.

The idea was to extract (and increase!) the crazy from the AB-Synth, hence the name. Ah, and make it momentary!
The Filter was added especially to vary the self-oscillating stuff it will do (like repeating laser blasts and stutters), but it also adds some cool fuzz effects.

This is kind of the evolution of the semi-secret Shitari Tripsynth, by incorporating that Bleep Feeder (and combining the Hi & Lo bleeps into a single knob).

It's pretty frickin' cool. I'm still trying to work out the coordination involved in getting something representative, but I think I should be able to put something together by tomorrow - audio if nothing else...

Tom, hope I didn't let the cat outta the bag! This thing is tons of fun. Playing riffs through it sounds like the universe being torn apart!

Dude, top mount jacks (including power), indicator LED under the skull, and LIGHTS ON THE SIDE!!!! I have no idea how TDalton fit it all in such a tiny enclosure. Like I said, the guy is a wizard!
