Harvestman Empty Quiver?

Post by shamann » Tue May 20, 2008 1:29 pm

I saw this name floating in the ether. Future product, bitcrusher in pedal enclosure?

Anyone have details/info they can share?

Are you on the Harvestman list? There was a prototype mockup picture linked in one of Scott's emails a few months back.

It's essentially a Malgorithm in a stomp box. That's all the details I'll share as they may be different now than the last time I talked to Scott about it.

Maybe he'll share it on here with us ;)

Hmm, didn't know there was a list, must sign up. But, random stabs at info on miscellaneous web forums are way more fun.

Found the image on the Yahoo group. Looks really cool. I have a Bugcrusher already, so likely won't need it. Hopefully lots of folk buy it up so that he'll make more pedals.

I think he's shown a lot of interest in doing stomp boxes.

I think a pedal version of the Tyme Sefari would lay people on their ass.

I think most of the experimental looper guitarists would love it.

Scott has a real advantage since most of (if not all) his digital designs (I don't know about the polivoks) operate on +/-5v, so they are easily adaptable to run on 9vbatteries or the almost industry standard Boss 9v adapters.

Being a big fan of loopers/infinite delays, I'd definitely look at getting a Tyme Sefari pedal.

I'd be all over a Tyme Sefari pedal. If he could make a deluxe stereo version (in a Jomox T-resonator form factor), I'd even marry the man.

HEY

I just rented a place with a garage in seattle, so parking the drill press isn't a problem. Pedals can happen as soon as I rewrite the Malgorithm code to be more pedal-specific (basically gotta rewrite the whole thing in order to support the onboard lfo).

Future pedal designs are probably gonna happen too, have some interesting ideas for sampler/delay (of course) and chorus. Got no shortage of silly names for guitar pedals, anyway.

I also want to do a filter type of thing, but I don't know how good those Russian op-amps would work in a single-supply situation. I'll start playing with a derivative design using Western parts and other elements of my own design and see where that takes me.

So, yeah. I guess the first round of pedal designs are derivative of the Harvestman modules, but there's also some weird new stuff in the pipeline as well.

I finish moving on the 7th and then I can resume shipping modules.

hey I seem to recall also there was mention of a 4-way pedal-to-modular interface unit, so that guitar pedals can be easily patched into a modular rig

this would be KILLER. and if if could be patched backwards so that modules can be used in a guitar rig, it would be DOUBLE KILLER!

you are up to some seriously cool shit Scott. well done :hyper:

Yo Muff,

The PCB for this was drawn this week. It's the STILTON ADAPTOR. 4ch pedal adaptor/preamp with variable atten (up to 25x gain) and wet/dry xfade. I guess you could do it backwards if you had the right physical adaptors (1/4" -> 1/8" and vice versa). Gotta breadboard a single channel to make sure the component values are right, then it can go to production. Already taking wholesale orders, i guess.

And yes, the 4th channel has a multed out so you can patch it back into channel 1.

This will be the first module to be Made In Seattle. This week I showed Keith how to solder SMT and he's showing good results already. Have patience while I move all my shit 2000 miles and we'll have some stuff in stock in a few weeks.

Oh yeah, you'll need TRS insert cables to use this one. Still debating whether supplying cables with the module is the best idea, since some people keep their pedals on the table, while some keep them on the floor.

Great, great, great to hear.

Now, I'm usually in a minority on this, but please consider doing a stereo model, especially for the sampler/delay thing you might have cooking up. For some reason, it seems only the Europeans are doing stereo desktop modules these days (Jomox, Eowave, Vermona) and I can see where those are going to get costly down the line as the Euro goes sky high.
