Barefoot Expression Version (LDR Expression Pedal)

As well as the standard barefoot volume control pedal I have the Barefoot Expression Version in the pipeline. This is in a really small 50mm x 50mm enclosure, and will feature an output, as well as the LDR sensor and the kill/revive toggle. It basically connects to any pedal that can take an expression pedal and works as an expression pedal. Imagine this controlling a WMD Geiger Counter, changing the sample rate in time with the strobe lights! Brutal!

Barefoot is a range that I’m probably not going to produce for sale, they are more just a mess around for me. The normal volume version is just to temperamental for sale, and the expression version is not entirely perfect as the full range of whatever parameter is controlling will be unobtainable in most circumstances as without having really strong lighting on the LDR the minimum setting will be hard to meet. I’m sure by searching out the perfect LDR this could be gotten pretty good, but as it is just a bit of fun for me primarily controlling the Geiger Counter I’m not too worried! By nature LDR’s are pretty unreliable, and by manufacture they have a notoriously low tolerances, so they are pretty unreliable anyway, which is one of the reasons I like them after all!
