yeah when slamm is pressed, i have it at 0

...which is backwards as to how it should be. That would also mean that in your case the switch's LED is lit when the button is NOT pressed, correct? If that's the case, something IS wrong with your SLAM switch.

The way it is designed, the LED is off (shorted, as well as R69) when SLAM is off.

ill check on that

my sciwtch is a classic  DPDT i didnt pay attention to the led if it switches accordingly

ill make more carefull tests and see

i need to follow the Qbias from the QB Spot also

The BOM calls for a 4-way switch - 4PDT not dual.

You can make it work with a DPDT but only for basic Slam functionality. No LED indication nor R69 which increases the shortest release time when in Slam mode (1.8M is way to high for that, TBH).

my switch is like dpdt x2 on this picture ( down right )

it 1 switch with  4 ways NO/NC, i couldnt find the same switch ( in my country ) than the one of the BOM but seems to be the same switching method than on the datasheet ( i think )


fripholm

Okay, this might work.

Hey, yeah ok im super stupid all works perfectly, i forgot to remove the  jumper in the sidechain link .....

Now compresses perfectly, very very very discrete compression even at heavy reduction :) i like it, will be usefull on vocals and bass :)

thanks a  lot for your patience and sorry for my stupidity

i found it work better with 2N5457 than J112 or BA254

Great! Glad, you've found the error.

May I ask , what made you think to install a jumper there in the first place? Was it something misleading in the build guide?

pstcho

i simply bought a kind of molex connector that had ajumper on it, when i soldered it i simply forgot to remove it

one week after before trying, i was ready the guide i saw  link so i didnt pay attention and fired it up , then you know the story :P

Hi,
I'm interested ... There is PCB still available ?
Cheers,
P.

fripholm

Yes, the boards are available. Please see the first post in this thread on how to order by email (no PM, please).

Thanks!

did anyone create a mouser project that he is able to share with me?
I used to date a blind girl. Her name was ::… ..:.: .:::. .::.. ….: .:.::

Would it be possible to add the Poor mans tube gain stage to this project:

I think itll make for a fund and good sounding device. Ill be putting this into a 1U chassis so i should have the space for it.

fripholm

It should be possible if you replace everything after the output pot with the tube stage and an output transformer.

sweet thank you, another question would this work for the right angle connector:

No, at 8 mm the pin's mating side is too long.

Use these or these. And this is one possible female counterpart.

Ahhh I see! Thank you!

One other question, where would be the best place for me to pull audio front run to the tube gain stage?

fripholm

If I understand correctly, you are trying to replace the output stage with your tube circuit, aren't you? In this case, you would pull the audio signal from the wiper of the output pot.
