Like the Avalon VT-747s (http://www.avalondesign.com/vt747sp.html) we are not talking about having a knob to vary the attack, we are talking about changing the overall range that the attack control normally has good write u...

right and there are ways to slow it down but unless there is already something there slowing it down there isn't anyway to speed it up short of replacing the vactrol with a different model but that can cause other oddities that might not be wanted or force you to change other components and in the e...

in most cases yeah just adding in a cap in parallel or even increasing a pot value will help you get different ranges but there are a lot of other factors depending on the design. its often easier to gets slower rates then it is to speed them up. did you have something specific in mind? if you can p...

one would think that if there is an external pedal input to mod it then it should be safe but certainly it will tape, heads, etc? out faster unless it just moving a head back and forth and not altering the tape speed, which i doubt. i tried to contact hiwatt techs about this and see if they could sh...

if i did a board it would be super compact, have the extras on the other version, and be double sided so it won't be much help. unless of course there is a really high demand for this version instead.

anyone else can though i don't mind.

most of my experimentation was a while back with older versions of things, and i?m sure the gap has narrowed a lot, running at 24 now and with all the programmers understand all the short comings of the past it probably doesn?t matter at all anymore. but my findings in the past were? logic back when...
