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 http://hackabrute.yusynth.net/index_en.php (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 http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-CMP159-Stereo-Breakout-10-Feet/dp/B005HGM1D6 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 http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MHE100.5?adpos=1o2&creative=54989267161&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CN2dkIGAksECFYGTfgod1wgAcA 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 electro-music.com http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-62935.html for those wanting to discus the schematics/circuits and the possible mods that this new information can bring.

This is  great news. Do you have a recommendation for an inexpensive pedal? Would Moogs expression pedal suffice?

Thanks for all of this!

Also what is the exact model of your Enrie Ball?
