Minibrute works with expression pedals, who knew?
« on: October 04, 2014, 05:16:04 am »
So the Minibrute schematics site hosted by Yves Usson has gone live recently at (Thanks Yves!).  Many cool things to be found in those schematics but one of use to everybody who owns one is that all the CV in's can use a regular expression pedal or volume pedal to control it.  You do not need a cv pedal as some have previously thought.  Why this information is not in the user manual I have no idea but I have tested it out and it works!  I tried it out using a Ernie Ball Volume Jr pedal by connecting a 3.5mm stereo to left right 1/4" TS splitter like this one to the Minbrute cv in and to the volume pedal in and out.  If you have a typical expression pedal you will need something like this to plug it in.  On pitch it will cover a 12 octave range so it may be a bit much but for VCA it was great and Filter was a usable range as well.  I have started a topic at for those wanting to discus the schematics/circuits and the possible mods that this new information can bring.
