Auto Wah / Envelope Filter Bass Pedal

I'd love a nasty envelope following filter to make some horrible noise-funk... the kinda music they might put in an S&M movie right before she says the safeword.

Like a Q-tron or Mutron but from hell. Flamey



For everyone else, what would you like to see a Metasonix version of?

Wow. I missed that the Assblaster had an Envelope following feature.

That said... I'd still love a dedicated pedal (to put on the floor, not in an utility box) that exploits that Envelope following / Auto Filter / auto-wah effect.

I agree with Smokey! more toys for bass guitar!!!

I use the TX-3 with a Bass Jazz (passive) but just for drones, if you want to use it as bass distortion you will hear about 30% of the tones and 70% of noise, which is good if you like hard noise.

For drones I use the CV input, you can control the TX-3 from the knobs of your bass! very funny.

Great tip that also works with a bass and the F-1 pedal. You can use the knobs to tune the feedback! Or is it the "parasitic oscillations"? Very, very fun and funny!

Thanks for sharing the tunes Mat. That TX-3 is a howling banshee!

an R-module phaser / all-pass filter please.

That's because they are very simple, to keep costs down. There's only so much you can do with three dual triodes. A really good phaser would have at least seven or eight stages.

yeah, that probably wouldn't work for the euro market. imo the R-modules are at a good price point.

shame, it'd be great to hear the metasonix take on a phaser.

maybe it could work as another tool-box design for the metasonix fanatics who can/will pay?

Any thing other than a filter, vca, or oscillator would be awesome. I personally would prefer more "weird shit" like the R-53. Though I definitely wouldn't mind seeing another metasonix filter or oscillator (the vca's seem pretty well covered).

+1 from me too (especially because I see myself getting a second one).

1) I vote for the phaser; I'd buy it hands down for $1000 if it sounds like a monster.
2) Someone said Van Der Pol Oscillator. Yes! Vote! Want! I read the science, that would ROCK with tubes.
3) Something fun for vocals (other than plain distortion)

ad 1) A tube phaser I think also have a non-extremist market and is usable for many instruments, so plz put some of them cartoons on it, or else you sell too many
ad 2) it seems that Trogotronic's M676 Fury behaves a bit like the Van Der Pol oscillator though the only transformer I see in there is for plate voltage.
ad 3) Vocals love tubes. I once experimented with multiple R54s resonating on a chord like some primitive harmonizer.

Imagine this circuit multiplied by 8. That is what a "proper" phaser would require. Not trying to diss anyone --- it's just to warn you why no one made a tube phaser before. At least 9 tubes just for the phaser plus four dual vactrols.

So... a minimum of 13 tubes? That's just 2 more than the S-1000! I'm sure at least a half dozen people here would spend $3-4k on a 13 tube phaser.

Not I though... waah

Maybe. Remember that Effectrode put out what they called a tube phaser. With only three dual triodes, I suspect either they cheated and used solid-state, or it wasn't a very deep phasing sound. Either way it was discontinued after 150 units. Makes ya wonder.

If anyone has a Phaseomatic, send it to me and I'll try to trace the schematic.
malnatim
i have a phaseomatic pm1 (i think only 20 made).
it's only 4-stage. yes, you're right it is subtle and doesn't produce a deep phasing, but it sounds very good to me.
they made an 8-stage that used 10 valves. i've never heard it.
http://wikibin.org/articles/effectrode.html

i also have an v1 blue tube-vibe with some mods. i use it more often.

i don't think there's any solid state cheats in either of these.
the guy who makes them was always very honest and helpful.
they're both subtle, but i find them great for adding a little movement / texture, rather than a dramatic, obvious phasing effect (which is fun, but not always as useful).

maybe a Metasonix 4-stage phaser that is chainable if you buy more than one to make 8 stage, 12 stage...

Of course they could also be run in parallel for stereo effects.

The modulation could also be external, depending on other LFOs.

why is that the r modules never have more than two tubes?





Have you considered using those small (miniature tubes ) to make eurorack modules?

FatRocky wrote:

Space, power capacity, cost. We could make a module with 12 tubes but very few people would buy it. I already get endless bitching about high prices and power-supply issues. Thanks but no thanks.

Quote:

You mean SUBminiature tubes. 20 years ago, when military surplus submini tubes were still commonplace, I would have considered it. Unfortunately they are getting very scarce due to hoarders buying them all up. Plus a lot of them are battery-radio types or specialized things with directly heated filaments, which are very difficult to use in audio circuits other than as simple amplifiers.

Someone actually tried to make a VCO with a used krytron a while ago. Completely unstable and untuneable. The same goes for any cold-cathode tube with a trigger electrode. You can lead a 5823 to water, but you can't make it funk. It does lots of horrible noise, though.

could there be a modular system d2000? 5-6 slot empty frame with power plus the tube output stage, maybe some additional mixing features to make it a go to solution for racking up drum modules, metasonix and more.

I'm still holding out on the mini-guitar amp. How about something based around the GE Compactrons?
Head only
Fucked up 'strangle' or tone controls
Available finished or as a kit in order to hit a lower price point. You could outsource the support calls.

Compactron article for those that are interested.

6AF11 or perhaps even the 6T9. You could then call the amp the "SixtyNine". It would fit in with Yellow Inc. nomenclature.
There are many types from which to choose.

I like what I read here: "The gated beam discriminator section of a 6Z10 Compactron is identical to the 6BN6. If you have any 6BN6 circuits or experience, you can apply that knowledge when using the 6Z10—and the power pentode section is (like the 6T9's) a 6AQ5A."

It would be cool as hell to have an OT with switchable primary impedance that could be switched to something rather high in order to obtain increased saturation of the power section of the tube. As the output power is pretty low, I would guess there must be an OT out there that could do this and without melting.
Smokey
I hope the D-2000 is doing well for you, so well that you want to make a new Assblaster in a similar format.

Oh, if only it were that simple.....to get useful power from an output tube stage it has to run at least 90-100 volts plate supply and needs an output transformer. All $$$ and space-consuming. I have a good supply of 17X10/AB10s and just need to find a way to package and power them without busting the bank.

"Compactrons" are actually not very compact, dude.

Didn't say it wasn't possible at all, it's just not possible for me, esp. since people expect a whole raft of "special features" in a Metasonix product. This guy's kit is VERY minimal, even the cabinet has to be assembled. All it has is one volume control.

I feel truly sorry for the owners of Zeppelin Design Labs. They are trying to push into a market that has already had prices "crashed and burned" by cheap Chinese-made tube guitar amps like this one. $199 assembled and tested, with built-in speaker.

If we make another guitar amp, even a small low-power one, it has to be insane and bizarre. Accept no substitutes.

So help me out. Find a suitable inexpensive enclosure for such a product. Let's not use the molded plastic toolbox anymore, please. I've come to hate those things. They take up a LOT of space in a shipping box.

After just acquiring a Hellfire Modulator #12 SlayerBadger! I think there should be more Metasonix modulation. Eric would it be possible/and worth it to make a rack mounted modulation piece?

Guess you hadn't heard. Blackheart is basically a "zombie company". In 2009 when the parent company "Loud Technologies" nearly went under, thanks to the banking meltdown, they unloaded several properties and cut back on the others. Belov left "his" company, so he went over to Ampeg temporarily (because Ampeg is "a classic brand", it is in no danger of going under. Supposedly). If you see any Blackheart products for sale in a shop they are probably leftover stock. (Supposedly.)

Peter is looking for another job. So someone, please hire him.
http://belovgroup.com/About.html

I've seriously though about just buying those junky little Chinese amps and gutting them for the cabinet and other parts. Theoretically I could get them for wholesale prices (which aren't much less than the absurdly cheap retail prices now). The problems come in with the build quality, which is "variable at best", and the labor to disassemble and modify them. Plus the AC mains issue and getting UL approval. A rackmount enclosure of some kind would be more practical, with a 12v DC power inlet.

Quote:

Not in one enclosure, sorry. Power-supply capacity issues. I might consider a separate processor. Depends (once again) on how sales go in the next few months.
Kent
Peter and I communicate quite frequently. He is currently employed. Perhaps guilty of not updating his website, alas.

Whether Blackheart is extant or not is not germane to the topic of obtaining high-value, cool and robust cabinets for a mini-head. Peter could easily offer input as to how to obtain cabinets on a small scale or even manufacturing a product for Metasonix on a larger scale if desired. He'd probably even tell me as a favour with no expense.

It feels like this discussion has run aground. I get the impression that no amount of prodding or excitement will light your fire about releasing a quirky little recording amplifier. I can understand not being excited about the project due to the G-1000. That's absolutely okay. I still think that you are neato, but this is going nowhere and, that too, is okay.
bsnssmn
I told Franz from Schneider's Laden about the phaser and he wants to buy one as well. I really believe a tube phaser with all the hallmark outrageousness of a Metasonix product could be a great success. Was thinking about a name. Due to the sound that a phaser makes, the word "lube" should be in there.

I think a pre-assembled system like the ones from Make Noise or Pittsburgh Modular would be nice. All the modules are already there, just put them in a case. I do not know of this is something people want, but they seem to be kind of popular. Who knows, maybe it is a hit.
Kent
God damn, I came off like a prick I that last post. Gotta use lube next time.

In response to the prior post; I think that Eric has done this with the S-1000 and -2000 units. The KV-100 is also like this in regards to effects.

Well, the difference is that a pre-assembled (modular) system such as the Make Noise Shared System is completely modular, and can be re-assembled later if you decide to do so. Could be a way to push more modules. Just an idea.
metasonix
An assembled system has been considered. One issue is, what to do about CV generators. Make our own and take abuse for making something "wrong", or buy someone else's and get abuse for using someone else's?

Another is where to source the cabinet (for a reasonable price whatever that means) blah blah.....we're just not set up to make cabinets from scratch, I don't have the time or the power tools or the labor available. Ideas are welcome.

I've watched many companies put out assembled systems. And I've seen people instantly bitch about them on Facebook and here. Too expensive and doesn't do this/that yaddayadda.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/euroracksynthesizers/permalink/1796877 213663273/

Not to mention the power-supply spluttering (this one features Peter Grenader) -- if we offered a case it would have to contain a substantial power supply and that would be another open door for being bitched at about weight and price etc. etc.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/111029938930272/permalink/169242070079 1180/

Some of the assembled systems out there has a lot of CV generators, and some are just processing units. I think it would be best to have everything Metasonix, but it does not have to be too complex. A simple envelope maybe?

The aluminum skiffs from Make noise and Intellijel are low-cost, and something similar to that could work, although you would need a flightcase to protect the tubes travelling to gigs. I use an Amalgamod case. The lid protect the tubes, and they are lightweight. Only problem is they are located in Australia.

Regarding power-supplies, maybe a RKP Power System would be sufficient for smaller systems?

I have no idea if this would sell, but it could be a way to push more modules.
CopperHydra
Please make a chorus or phaser with feedback. It'd be worth paying $500 for.

A tape delay for $700 - $1500. OR $3000 if it sounds great.

Complete systems I think people want because they think of it as a wholesale lot of modules and many other reasons I'm sure, but I think you can build a better modular for much cheaper using mixed brands.

Personally I would love a racked Metasonix product as a FSU device for DAW/“pro audio” processing.
2-4U that can sit under my Culture Vulture that I can process recorded tracks with Metasonix flavor.
Rack-able with other gear.

I don’t always want to bother with patching or running cables across the studio, format jumbling etc. I also like the integrated signal flow of the Assblaster.

So in my dream land, something that combines the filtering of my TM6/2, and distortion of Scrotum Smasher, Agonizer and Buttprobe with some fun adds twists like feedback/teabag switches, pulsars etc.

Maybe it’s like a mega Hellfire device?

Keep up the great work Eric

What would be cool if you could make this photo multiplier sensitive to as many wave lengths as possible, so a radiowave could be a low lfo, a micro wave be a high lfo, light be audible waves, ultraviolet be ultrasonic, then x-rays/gamma rays can be used for video synthesis (btw I dont want video synth people to get cancer but for the modulation scale i made they kind of made sense (oh who I am I kidding i am so jealous of all visual synthesizer artists that I want them to parish so I can buy their gear cheap), jk (but not really)) Wait did i use enough (())(()()(?

In the 1950s some noise-generator instruments used PMTs as the source. Disadvantage: cost and size. And it's a lot worse today. Even Hamamatsu's cheapest PMT costs about $150 just by itself. That module is prob. $2k.
