Wow, it’s been a busy week. I have made up circuits for the 072 buffer, Solar Lifeforce LDR volume/expression pedal and the Divide By Zero feedback loop, and also started making an active/passive A/B box that also has an LDR volume eye for a friend of mine who plays bass! It’s going to be quite a cool little device actually, being able to switch between active and passive is last-minute feature that is going to be pretty neat. I named it “The Thing That Ate James” and re-used the leech graphics that were redundant after “The Leech” became the Bomb Idea. It’s a pretty strange name to be honest, but it comes from the compilation “The Thing That Ate Floyd”, which happened to be on my mind when I was thinking about the pedal. The guy it’s for is called James, so go figure the rest. The pre-amp section of the pedal is TL072 op-amp based, and has a gain of a little over x 2.  The eye (which will work the same as the eye from the Solar Lifeforce, just without a range control) is a bit of an after thought to make it that bit cooler. As it is going to be used as a stage pedal it will really put the LDR to test in that environment.

Anyway, here’s the artwork!

Here’s the album cover to The Thing That Ate Floyd…
