release date Friday, 7-24-15.

Intro ILF brodown lowprice $139. (reg price $179, this thing is expensive to make!) US shipping is free, international $30 via USPS priority.

First run of 10 will be 'large heart' graphics shown, next ten and future runs will have 3 smaller hearts across the middle (full, half, empty heart meter) and the switches will be under the knobs.

I have had MANY requests for this thing so don't blow it. The next batch will have a couple weeks wait.

What is it? It's a fuzzy pulse width modulator that does straight up old school video game sounds (not a transistor fuzz that sorts sounds like a video game, this actually does a pseudo analog to digital conversion in a lofi bitcrush type way) but also has an onboard optical (vactrol) LFO, that can do square chop or smooth sine sweeps between the highest bit rate and whatever you set as the bit low point. The result is low sweeping phaser-like bit sweeps, or stuttering bitcrunching and all sorts of synth goodness. Most settings work well on the higher notes on a guitar too, and it has plenty of sustain, so you really have a great "synth engine" to run into your other effects.

Controls: switch 1: LFO wave control (square, soft triangle, sine), switch 2: tone filter (flat, bright, deep).

Knobs: Bit depth, LFO depth, LFO speed, Volume.

By carefully tuning the knobs this thing can get a million sounds. Straight old school 8bit sounds can be had by selecting sine wave LFO and turning the speed and depth all the way up; same setting on square wave yields an 8 bit ring mod. back off the speed a hair and it's a hummingbird trem-u-bit. just a billion things to do with it.

Is it possible to get one with an expression input for the LFO / that cancels the internal LFO so I can use my Goatkeeper 3 with it?

not yet. this one is just too small inside, i tried to cram one in there for ya but no go.

there should be more room on the next batch. :thumb:

as for this batch....

IT'S A GO!

There will be a video up tomorrow night with the highlights of all the controls and sounds. Orders are being taken for the first 10 (some are spoken for already) which will ship out Wednesday of next week. If you would like one, send an email to pennypedalsfx@gmail.com or send over a PM here. Then, I will write you back and forward an invoice for payment. Note, if you email or PM tonight or tomorrow (Saturday) I will not get back to you until tomorrow night; no worries just hang tight.

Full, albeit low volume and mediocre, demo:



I will be editing the demo with subtitles to explain what the hell is going on in the clips.

everyone who contacted for a pre-order will be sent payment info TONIGHT so hang tight!

Anyone else wants in before this batch is gone better hurry, only a couple left. word.

oh and to increase the sexy, I changed the switch layout from barely reachable at the top to fully usable under the knobs.

Just got mine, this thing is really fun to mess around with. I' only got to play with it a little bit because I'm at work, but I'll give it a full rundown in the coming days.

Only thing to note is that the tone switch and the LFO mode switch are reversed on mine vs what the instruction sheet says. So my LFO mode is on the left, and the tone is on the right.

Not a demo, but I couldn't sleep last night and this is the result. The Digital pulse is used on the high synth line constantly in the bg (comes in around 0:08). Really gives it some character. The three guitar tracks are all live takes/improvisations, so excuse timing issues and flubs.



I recommend checking out the sound around 2:48. This pedal can get really glitchy if you ride the input volume a play with the gate

DRodriguez that sounds siiiick great work! wish i lived in Brooklyn sounds like my kinda stuff.

You are right the switches are swapped in the manual. They are correct on the pedal just reversed the ol' L and R in writing. my bad.

Those responsible for the sacking have been sacked.
