No Tomorrow Update 4

The No Tomorrow is starting to get rolling again, with a few pretty big changes. I’m going to ditch the sample rate reduction, which there is no denying was a major part of the pedal. In reality I’m not loving the distortion/crusher mix at all. In its place is going to be a fidelity control which will blend the distorted signal with the infamous  lofomofo circuit (will probably be modded to some degree), after the distortion, so any amount of lofi-ness will be available. I’m also getting rid of the separate variable high pass and low pass filters and replacing them with the standard Big Muff tone control. So here is a list of the new controls:

  • Gain
  • Starve
  • Tone
  • Volume
  • Mix (fidelity and speaker)
  • Speaker
  • Lofi/midfi toggle control to change the depth of the lofi setting

This pedal is defiantly becoming a very strange beast, but I’m loving the idea of a really lofi distortion, which is something I have been thinking about for a long time. I was heading towards a lofi fuzz route, but I think the No Tomorrow would benefit from that part of the circuit.  I’m also toying with the idea of reducing the hard clipping to soft clipping so that it has more of an overdrive feel to all out distortion, who knows.

Here’s an updated idea of the artwork:

As an after thought I would love make it into a cartridge for the Devi Ever Console II at some point (probably omitting the speaker control and fixing the fidelity to lofi).  Circuit to follow once I have finalised the values.
