DIY cntnt: Envelope FX Looper-Panner; my next neverending project
Pretty simple concept that seems very achievable-
A pedal with 2 FX loops- according to the envelope of the input signal, the output will 'pan' between the first loop to the second, or it could 'fade-in' the second effect, or do either with a dry signal.. You could also control it with an expression pedal obviously or even LFO voltage controlled!
The possibilities i could keep throwing off of my tongue could take paragraphs, and most of them seem easy enough, even at my level of experience with designing circuits.
loop 1: some fuzzy fatness
loop 2: octave up pedal with chorus reverb
You strike a fat fuzzy note, and a bright shimmery atmosphere creeps in or: (fuzz) panned to (fuzz + octaved dry bass) not that the latter is NOT fuzz into octave. anyway...
loop 1: Iron Ether Subterranea -> envelope filter
loop 2: LFO based modulation (Polytope anyone?)
After that badass swept fat pulsewave attack, the LFO warbles away, putting together a new level of synthesis options
note that this would be achieved by The Subterranea staying in the signal path, and that the panning would really occur between Subt>out / Subt>
Ill draw up a 'knobs and switches' brainstorm for fun in a second, and if anyone is interested in experimenting with the ideas, I'll post some circuit ideas and we can brainstorm, because I'm not finished being dumb at electronics yet ;)
Don't know if you've already figured out the circuit, but if not, check out "Stompboxology" available through Moosapotamus's site. The issues on tremolo/panning and envelope effects have some circuits that would work well for your application.
I always forget about moosapotamus somehow, thanks!
And thanks for the Subterranea- I've been slinging that thing all up and down Frenchmen lately.. people are always psyched to hear its produced in NOLA
The Moosapotamus site and Stompboxology magazine are some great resources. The latter takes unusual approaches to circuit design by stompbox standards so they are really interesting to study.
