Crash-old

Crash
Your new fuzz module !

It was a rainy day when i finished it. I went out for a walk and on my way
back at workshop a big CRASH happened. Till i understand what was going
on, a car accidenttook place in front of my eyes. 
“That was it”, i said,
and i looked up in the sky. 
“The CRASH pedal is a new Holy Grail.”
So, maybe it was an omen…

Designer’s Notes

I present you the CRASH, a modulated oscillating fuzz.
It screams like a bad fuzz, it grunts and squeals like a monster.
Five knobs that are very interactive with each other, and let you control everything.
From a tight to a radio fuzz, from an oscillated to a gated off, from a velcro to an octave-like fuzz.
The toggle switch (2 options) is for setting the Pulse Width.

Controls

Volume

Controls the output level. Middle position equals unity gain.
Turn this clockwise for maximum output level .

Fuzz 

Increases distortion and adjusts
feedback pitch and tonal thickness

Tone

Reduce treble frequencies as you rotate it clockwise while simutanuesly
increasing low-mids and Bass. When you rotate counter clockwise it increases
treble while simutanuesly reduce Bass and low-mids

Bias 

Setting the effect from a clean fuzz to that splatty saggy.
Very interactive with fuzz and Volt knobs.

Volt

Use all the way left. Do not adjust this control above 9:00,
unless you like your fuzz to squeals. Use to control feedback pitch.
