VC Distortion PCB for 12v recommendation

Author VC Distortion PCB for 12v recommendation
money bags
I'm going to sell off my metasonix VCA distortion. I really like the sound but i can see those tubes sticking out of it becoming trouble with how much i have to move my case around. I would keep it if the tubes were better protected.
can any one recommend a VC distortion?

Plague Bearer
MOTM 510 wavewarper

Oakley Overdrive? Although, there's nothing to VC there...
DGTom
VCA before any distortion = VC distortion thumbs up

I turn by back for one second and..... angry


THANKS GUYS!! It's peanut butter jelly time!


the Plague Bearer is a distortion? I always thought of it as a filter (im not a fan of filters)

ill look into the MOTM 510 wavewarper

Oakley Overdrive i have considered and like DGTom mentioned i can just run a VCA before it. kind of slipped my mind.

I want something that sounds like a RAT pedal! I'm talking totally fucked!

Plague Bearer is not a filter. It's not distortion. It's both. It's neither! It's awesome! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger!

fuck man i need to get those plugged in!!! i have 2! im waiting for my metal hole punch (just a few more days) to finish the face plate.

Lots of really good distortions are super simple, a PCB would be way OTT for them, if you don't mind getting busy with proto-board, this;

is a really good place to start. Replace R56 with a vactrol for some really dirty CV boost.

Take a few hours to breadboard a bunch & see what floats yah boat!

Failing that... stick a Rat behind a panel & call it a day MY ASS IS BLEEDING

woops - the 510 is 15v. But it might work with 12v.

yup, plague bearer is more used as a distortion than a filter here.

I was thinking about doing this with a nord micro modular





ill see what i can do with the bread board. I just got a massive parts order so i have some playing around to do.

im about to rip apart my boxotrix and frac rack it

Im looking for a mod to CV the nord micro modular. nothing has come up yet but i have not started asking around. this could be the turning point.
