It’s been a few months since the last new project release, but worth the wait. Today, four new circuits are available, including a trace of the Dinosaural OTC-201 Opticompressor. I documented the tracing process if you’re into that sort of thing. Otherwise, onto the new projects!
An exceptionally rare and unique optical compressor designed by Dan Coggins of Lovetone fame. This is a brand new trace, and the circuit doesn’t bear much resemblance to anything else out there.
An early entry in the minimalist Tube Screamer category, this was one of the circuits that kicked off the hand-built boutique pedal industry.
An under-appreciated Ibanez drive pedal originally marketed toward rhythm guitarists, but versatile enough for a wide range of applications.
A thick fuzz/distortion circuit designed to replicate the low-budget garage tones of an overloaded cassette recorder.
