Hi,

Are there any DIY 500 distortion units available like the standard audio level-or?
Please let me know
Thanks!

Thanks
I've listened to the samples but this unit seems to be all about subtle distortion. I'm looking for something more radical like the level-or

maybe one of the guys developing new modules will make something more what you are looking for:

    Eisen Audio
    Louder Than Liftoff
    TB Audio
    Abe Chapman of AC Sound
    Big Bear Audio
    Nathan Bowers of THD Industries
    Dane Tate of XQP Audio
    Bearcat Audio

Or you can develop something yourself / have some one develop something like the level-or in the color format?

Great idea! Level-or for Color would be Col-or 8)

Not really an EQ but - dunno if you've seen this in the lab but I'm currently prototyping a Level-Loc implementation in a 500 module...

In looking at building distortion units for the 500 series, we found we could not please anyone on what was the best thing to do.

Instead, you might use a foot pedal interface unit and plug in your favorite distortion pedals.

I would recommend a brand and model but I fear this would violate posting guidelines.

A simple distortion circuit is quite simple, so it is more a question of getting it into a 500 module?
