    Hi folks, I just bought a diy Deep blue delay and it has alot of potential to make it on my board. I will use it as a slap back with several repeats. My question is, it's pretty dark/warm and I prefer more slice and cut to my slapback. The seller provided the build documents so I'll post em' here. Is there a resistor/capacitor that sets the brightness/ tone of this pedal? Controls are LEVEL / TIME / REPEATS with no internal trim pots.
    Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!!!!

    You can try putting a small value capacitor in parallel with R8 - try 10n, 22n, 47n and see what brightens it up enough for you.

    Thanks, that worked great! Kind of a bright cap I guess.
    Well done!

    What value did you choose and how much brighter did it get?

    I used a 22N, it got alot brighter. Might be clipping a tad now, but it sounds better for my needs.

    Try the 10nF. That might be perfect.
