This has been the view from the basement for the last several weeks, and as of this afternoon it’s finally working perfectly.
(Though it looks like a crazy mess.)
It’s a loop selector (yet-to-be-named) meant to replace my Boss LS-2, with some enhancements over that design:
- True bypass (on the master, not the individual loops)
- Two footswitches (master bypass and Loop B) for accessing any sound with one stomp
- Three routing options:
- Loop A into Loop B (series mode)
- Loop A in parallel with Loop B
- Loop A -or- Loop B (flip-flop mode)
- Trails bypass on the loops (for things like delay and reverb) (doesn’t work on the master bypass or on Loop A in series mode)
- Polarity inversion (for making sure the returns in parallel mode are in phase)
This is going to be a fantastic recording tool, and I’ve been pushing to get it done so I can build it and start recording h&s guitar tracks with it.
Though, now that I’ve written about it… I’m revisiting the idea of making it buffered bypass. <thinking emoji>
I’ll draw up the layout tonight or tomorrow, order parts, and maybe record synths until the parts arrive.
