WMD Geiger Counter

Special pedal effect: a mix of various preamp gains and audio bitcrusher from simple lo-fidelity level to total sonic destruction.

A 100% experimental effect!

stomp pedal from 1978

chips and circuits


not PEDAL EFFECT Main panel features a segment diplay, 6 knobs, 2 lever switches and 1 bypass button switch.

Back panel terminal connectors:
- signal input
- signal output

notPower supply external PSU DC 9V (- polarity or 9v battery.


notSOUND the WMD distorts and destructs sounds in a frequency range from 260 Hz to 58 kHz.
WMD destruction works in 2 main modes:
- internal bitcrusher reduces sampling resolution from 8 to 1 bits
- mask sound is processed through 256 digital internal waves with specific harmonics contents- the relative number showed in hexadecimal values on the segment display (from 00 to FF).

notCONTROLS knobs GAIN and TONES are for tonal modification with preamp gain for sustained sounds guitar (like distortion-oriented) that can be driven directly to wavetable math process or bypassed.

CV Control Voltage can be changed by a modular system tension.
Just plug expression pedal, LFO, CV sequencer or whatever producing something within a 0-5V range.

not MODIFICATION the "bass mod" adds better low end frequency response than the original.
It is made by the original company for now- I don't know about any schematics for now.

- great sound
- quality built

REVIEW "OK, an extreme effect.
can be really interest if you're into dirty sounds, 8 bits, LO-FI or experimental sounds."
