[pedal]Q: mod this Morley FX-Blender: how? (and who?)

Postby LievenDV » Tue Jun 25, 2013 10:55 am

Hi all,

disclaimer: I'm a tech-noob (I'm an online marketeer with an Information Manager degree. I know some things but electronics?..very little :)). Excuse my ignorance as I'm here to learn :)

I own a Morley FX Blender.
http://en.audiofanzine.com/misc-guitar-effect/morley/fx-blender/user_reviews/r.92569.html

The principle is simple; it has a loop. The expression pedal controls how much of your dry bypassed signal and how much of the loop you want to mix. Heel: all dry; tip: all loop. In theory tis is great and I can do some cool delay/reverb of fuzz tricks with it.

but...

I want to improve it.
I have the feeling that the useful range is a bit narrow.
I have to push it deep to hear the first change in effect and the range that I have between that point and the tip is really small. I want it to be divided more evenly. I think I have some kind of linear/log issue..
like this..

I found a notion a while ago that this could be achieved though. (But i'm not certain)
I've put some documentation on my webspace: http://www.foolproof.be/varia/morleyfx.zip
(schematic, sweep and wah adjust documentation by Morley themselves)

Les big Q's...
- Can the "more even response" be achieved?
- Who on this board lives in my neighbourhood and can do this mod for me (shipping possible but it's rather heavy/big)? (Belgium: Muizen (close to Mechelen))

I know someone in Hever (less than 5km from Muizen?) who could probably do this if he has time (the guy who built the Funky Fish Mu-Tron clones). I'll send him a message :-)

This wouldn't be hard at all if it were as simple as a potentiometer replacement. However from what I know, the Morleys use an optical system for the sweep. I'll look into it and see what can be done.
