Happy Birthday @fourbi !!

An attempt at the Generation Loss pedal.
Never actually used one, mind… just saw that vid and thought “Hmm…”!
It’s deliberately one-page, so there are compromises, but I’m not keen on multi-page fx units.
Basically an fx chain controlled by knobs & top row of keys (bottom row of keys do nothing);
AUX: WET - fx bypass.
KNOB1: dry/wet mix.
‘True’ bypass when bypassed (no led) i.e. in goes direct to out. 0% dry/wet is also true bypass.
FX chain when engaged (organelle blue led).
So if all fx in the chain are actually muted but the dry/wet is 100% then it’s a separate ‘non-true’ clean path - check out the chorus that occurs when you’re halfway in between. Happy accident.
Notice the range on this knob - 0-200%. Basically 0-100% (knob centred) is your usual dry/wet ratio mix.
After that, the 101-200% range is increasing the volume of the wet signal only for a bit of extra control when the fx are attenuating things.
All fx settings remain when bypassed. You can change settings whilst bypassed.
KEY61: WOW (+ flutter) bypass.
KEY63: Hold to max-out wow+flutter (i.e. momentary switch).
KNOB2: WOW amount - increases both wow and flutter effects simultaneously.
KEY66: HLP (hp+lp filter) bypass.
KEY68: Choose between HP/LP.
KNOB3: HP/LP cutoff frequency - use of KEY66 switch routes the knob values to the HP or the LP alternately, so you can set one, hit the button and set the other. Can’t do anything about encoder catch-up but I wanted this thing on one page so had to figure out a way to get one knob to ‘store’ two values.
KEY73: GEN (sample rate) bypass.
KNOB4: Sample rate in Hz.
KEY78: HSS (noise) bypass.
KEY80: Cycle between noise types - pink, white, vinyl crackle.
KEY82: Choose low or high level of noise.
Loads of visual feedback from the leds so you know you’ve done something.
Noise (HSS) appears at the end of the screen & keyboard for ergonomic reasons but in reality it’s the first thing in the chain.
LONG HOLD (approx. 0.5sec) on any of the function keys (inc AUX) sets that function as the footswitch parameter. Pink led flashes when set.
Since KEY63 behaves as a momentary switch, it can’t be set this way (it would constantly be setting itself as the footswitch parameter when used normally) so WOW max-out is the footswitch parameter by default on load - to restore to this parameter, reload patch. Hope that makes sense!
Dual channel, so it’s good for stereo or mono via either side.
