Is my DOD FX25 Envelope Filter broken?

    I found this pedal in the closet, and I have not used for such a long time that I cannot remeber how it used to sound. Now, it distorts terribly for all but the lowest of input volumes. So my question is, is my unit broken, or is it just the way these units are (i.e. worthless)? Enclosed is a small sample with the clean sound first, and then with the envelope filter plugged in.

    Thanks,

    Eyvind.

  2. Have you tried replacing the battery, or are you using a power supply?

    They do go bad. Distorting is one common problem; the other common one is for the volume to drop by about half. It's specific components that have gone bad, but I haven't sussed out exactly which ones it is yet.

    Yeah, I expected something like that. Since I'm not exactly a wiz when it comes to repairing electronics, I guess this FX goes out the door, then...
