Maybe we'll never know!?
On the plus side however, I did spy a video of it in action on YouTube..

:)
the case is an old mixer which contained the plates wich are filled with the pots faders and switches.
from another mixer (which was given up on) comes an power echo that is built in.
mostly the mods are from the wiki and site .
echo can be mixed with true sound or stand alone.(works nice with the insert modification)
mostly mods from the wiki and some addings to it
accentsweep speed settings on a guitarswitch 5 positions
accentsweep on/off with 2m2 pot to control the range between on and off (shortens d24)
rotery for different 'muffler'diode distortions with 50 k pot to control the range between full and off
insert mod is with pot also to control the level vco kill switch and vco to insertlevel controlpot switch (crossfades inserted sound with vco sound) it makes the sound 'come up' this is very usefull if an effect is inserted.
again thanks for all the information and enthusiasm here on the forum ,
without it would be much harder to work on such a project
:)
keep it up!

x0xb0x #795 FINALLY complete...

I started making #795 when I was working/living in San Francisco around this time last year. I had everything finished except for the sequencer section when I returned to Sydney, Australia. I've since been traveling a lot for work, and never had time to sit down and complete her. Finally, she is done!

Many thanks to the people on this board, and to Ladyada for this awesome DIY project. #795 is completely stock.

took me a while to finish (3 years!) where most of the time was spent thinking I had destroyed it and being very annoyed. it appeared that i was running it on DC... :oops: was well chuffed when I discovered it was actually working like a charm - even the USB which I though I had made a total mess of!

test track, made in 5 minutes

Finished mine a couple of days ago, ordered from substyler ...

sounds nice, a bit off tune, but i probably haven't tuned it correctly, and the usb never started :/ i'm guessing i must have fried the ttl converter chip while soldering it :)
