    One that can make a Strat sound like Clapton live at the Fillmore with Derek and the Dominos.

    An auto wah that sounds like you are playing a regular wah.

    An overdrive that I can adjust the amount of gain telepathically as needed.

    I'm aware of that one. Don't think they make it anymore and as I remember it didn't work very well. Kinda 'spensive too.

    Seems like it'd be simple enough with some NPN germanium transistors and the right box. The 2B is kind of a weird custom box, but something that should be pretty simple. Good luck getting Fuller to make one though! Lol

    The whole Vox MV50 line in pedal format with an effects loop.

    Wish I had my Lexicon MPX-1 and PCM41 on the floor.

    I have two that I would pay silly money for:

    1) HOG freeze/gliss in a wah shell. I don't need all the pitch shifting, or the filter, or the envelope... Just let me freeze what I'm playing and then control the speed of the gliss with the angle of the wah pedal.

    2) Some kind of multi-looper like a Rang III or 2880 with per-loop FX loops. Rather than having the looper at the end of the chain and recording loop 1 with flange and reverb, and then switching those off and recording loop 2 with delay and trem, I could basically record each loop dry and then run them each through their own FX chain. That way rather than having a static loop you could subtly shift them with whatever pedals are in each chain. I could oscillate a delay in one chain without affecting the other loops, for example.

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.

    My concept is essentially a Strymon DIG… but analog. Yeah, it’ll be larger. Yeah, the controls will take up more space. But base it off of an already popular analog delay. Like the MXR Carbon Copy (take the Deluxe and double it basically) or the EHX Memory Man. Although, I would prefer it be done on the Way Huge Supa-Puss foundation (my favorite analog delay).

    I think this would be HUGE. But it’s also a risky undertaking. If the core delay tone isn’t favorable to the masses, it will be a big expense that no one will want to pay since analog circuitry are inherently going to raise the cost of a stereo delay.

    Very cool concept - but usually the one size fits all approach might not fit the needs of a circuit board for a mini pedal and one that requires a 3" x 5" board. and you would need to figure out how to incorporate a million plus retro designs. I have a seriously decent design for pedal interconnects and other user features that I hope to prototype in the near future. I hope it helps with all these retro designs and layouts.

    PLL w a drone box and a little speaker...you are welcome! Careful though...my daughter is already asking about adding a little delay to hers...maybe a nice verb...

    Ever since Steve Hillage was knee-high to a Salmon'sSong, Brits have been shelling out big bucks for Cornish to build vast acres of aluminum sheet studded with bumpy, nubbly, stompy things which spoke through bundles of coax the size of a fire brigade's hose which in turn controlled folding table upon folding table of Binsons and WEMs and Mutrons and Echoplexes and they did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats and, well, you get the idea.

    Give Pete a buzz and tell him it's high time for a charity case.

    The sounds 'in my head' are only tones that have already existed. That i've heard before and liked. So, there isn't a 'new' thing i can think of. I do, though, wish there were some existing pedals that were some combination of 1) cheaper; 2) better-looking; 3) made by non-controversial companies.

    I want a reasonably-priced Vemuram Ibanez Tube Screamer; a delay that does the Space Echo thing, but also a bunch of other more typical things; and whatever the Vertex Dynamic Distortion does. I know it's supposed to be an SD9 or a FuzzFace into a Tube Screamer, but i don't really hear them as being the same.

    Word up. Generally speaking, I'd love to see a greater variety of MIDI-capable analog drive pedals. The few that exist aren't necessarily to my taste.

    Yes. It did. And it sounded peculiar, no matter what, to me ears.

    One ring mod to rule them all.
