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.

GENERATOR 3

A pedal-board-friendly voltage starved synth with three oscillators. Oscillator 1 has a lower range, while oscillators 2 & 3 have the same higher range.

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. Be warned, Generator 3 is the most antisocial of the Generator series. Many of craziest sounds actually occur at a relatively low volume - distortion is your friend!

Generator 3 can have a very 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.

As Generator 3 stabilizes, it can slightly decrease in volume. This is normal behavior. If the Voltage knob is all the way down when turned on this will happen relatively quickly. If the Voltage knob is elsewhere, starving the unit of power, this will most likely not occur until some point after putting the Voltage knob all the way down and the unit receives full power. If you are only interested in Voltage starved sounds, you may wish to try to avoid the lowest settings on the Voltage knob in order to prevent this stabilization, and keep your starved sounds extra loud!
