TOPIC: Octaver Guitar Effect Pedal

Octaver Guitar Effect Pedal 2 months 1 week ago #872

This effect generates an octaved signal which is created from the original guitar input signal by halving (octave-down) or doubling (octave-up) its frequency.

To implement the effect, one buffer is used to store the current signal. The buffer is written at a "constant speed" but read with different speed: half (octave-down) or double speed (octave-up).

How to control it:
  • Push-Button 1 (left): press for Octave down.
  • Push-Button 2 (right): press for Octave up.
  • Led: ON when the effect is activated
  • Toggle Button: not used.
  • Foot-Switch: activate/deactivate the effect.

The most important parameter is the Delay_Depth variable, try making it bigger or smaller to your taste (it makes the recording buffer bigger or smaller)
uint32_t Delay_Depth = 50000; //default starting delay is 100000 is 0.25 sec approx.

Here is the code:
