Hi there all amazing helpers on the BYOC Board! My 4th post only (which is a good thing as I've built 4 of the pedals!
I've built the Phase Royal and at the moment when I turn the rate/speed knob fully anti-clockwise to get a slow speed, it is still quite fast and doesn't go anywhere near slow at all! In fact it is quite quick! Also the output of the pedal is noticeably louder than the clean/bypassed signal!
I have only deviated from the instructions to do the pulsing LED mod as described by Morgan here:
If you want the existing status LED to blink in time with the rate, all you have to do is remove R38 and wire in a 4.7K resistor from the south end of the R38 spot (the end closest to Q5) to lug 3 of the rate pot. Or you could just lift the north end of R38 (closest to the AC adapter) and add a wire from the lifted end of the resistor to lug 3 of the speed pot. Easy peezy!
The LED works fine, bypass works fine, the only problems are the speed is WAAAY fast
and the pedal is LOUD
I will post photos if people want, but I was just wondering if this screams of something obvious to helpers who might be able to diagnose an issue just from my description. I've checked and the backs of the pots deffo aren't touching the board, so nothing is shorting that way.
My only thoughts are because my mod involved wiring from the rate pot to the LED, and that's what one of the issues is, that this might be the problem...? Thoughts?
Do you guys have any idea why the speed would be so effected? Any what it might be to make it have such a loud output?
Thanks for all help/ideas. Happy to post photos if it might help you diagnose...
