The Generator series are creative sonic tools.
Call me crazy, but I've always wanted some simple sound generating / noise making devices that could exist easily among other pedals for guitar/bass/keyboard/etc players. There are many builds of similar devices for tabletop or eurorack use, but many are in more fragile enclosures and would require a/b pedals or other routing to work in a guitar set up - all of which takes up more space, adds to the expense, and simply isn't that practical.
When engaged the input signal is muted and the Generator pedal takes over. When disengaged the Generator pedal is true bypass and has no effect on your tone.
A pedal-board-friendly voltage starved synth with two differently tuned oscillators.
This circuit can be musical or noisy or create drones depending how it's dialed in. Starving the voltage creates more intense and bizarre sounds. Generator 2 can be musical enough in some settings to be tuned with a tuner to specific notes.
Generator 2 can have a wide range in volume, particularly depending on voltage settings. Proceed with caution! Distortion pedals can help reduce this range and also bring out many of the quieter and more unique sounds.
