||bug crushing question
| br>Hello everybody, this is my first post here.
I built a bugcrusher using the schematic on the BugBrand website, and I'd like to add simple mods to it.
Anyone has good ideas to share?

| br>hi!! Welcome to the forum - and congrats on your build! The bugcrusher is loads of fun
I am not familiar with the schem or circuit as Tom built mine for me, but a few thing come to mind that wouldn't be too tough...
you could make vactrol-based CV input jacks (not precise, scaled or able to handle AC, but hey....) for whatever you are using a potentiometer
another fun thing that wouldn't be hard would be to wire up a simple ringmod using two little passive transformers and 4 diodes. then take the clean signal and ringmod it with the crusher's output
might be fun to put a mix control between the two signals and the ringmod
just some ideas....please let us know what you end up doing!
cheers br> br>

THIS is the page with details..
This is pretty old-school info -- done right at the start of my bugcrushing experiments, so its quite a basic circuit really.
Mike Muff's idea of vactrol RATE control is good! I've actually used a 4046 PLL VCO for VC rate, but that's much more complex.
- I'm sure that someone (maybe Steven SquarewaveParade) had tried power starvation, in particular starving *just* the negative supply rail
- how about a feedback loop around the AD781? (may require some extra circuitry for mixing / inversion / who-knows...)

| br>Thanks and merci :-)
The ringmod is a great idea, and maybe the unused gates of the 40106 could provide another signal source.
I was also thinking of using parts of the W.O.M. like the distortion stage, the low pass filter... And maybe a Starve function...
