Copilot Fx Brainzilla dual tap tempo lfo with sequencer pedal

Brainzilla this a dual independent tap tempo LFO with a step sequencer. The sequencer can be assigned to sync/change both LFO rates or tap ratios (sync toggles) or not (each one has its own speed/ratio knob). CV output for the sequencer (to control other devices) and CV jacks for LFO A and LFO B.

Toggle for sequence length (3, 4 or 5 steps) and trigger toggle to set if the sequence is always running or it is manually triggered via the middle footswitch, 3 dual color LEDs indicates which step is currently active. Reset footswitch to restart the sequence to step 1 and the middle footswitch also doubles to pause the sequence when the trigger toggle is in auto-advancing mode, CV input sync jack to sync the tap tempo to an external beat or you can tap twice the footswitch to assign the new rate.


Copilot FX Broadcast triple independent out LFO pedal

Another variation of the Broadcast, this one has 3 independent outputs (2 TRS expression outs and 1 CV out, each one has its own range knob), it also comes with Expression/CV input to control the rate/ratio or manually sweep the outs, invert toggle to have the 2 exp out be synced or unsynced. The extra footswitch changes the output from lfo to the exp/cv in for the 2 expression outs, while the cv out has a toggle.

Custom Trek 10 knobber, pulse width fuzz and oscillation machine pedal

copilot fx trek pwm fuzz custom ped

This one was a request by a member of ilovefuzz, it is a super TREK, I like it so much i built 4, if you are interested email me $130 for the trek alone or $180 for the trek/broadcast combo (note that both the trek and broadcast are blems, they both have some slight scratches and were used).

The 10 knobber Trek, it has a dual parallel sound, side A is a hot overdrive/distortion signal so you can add balance/clarity to the overall signal, while side B is a pulse width fuzz, you can mix and match both sides to taste. The pulse width is similar to an square wave fuzz sound, but you can shape the on/off time of the wave via the range knobs, there are 2 range knobs which are linked to the second footswitch, so you can go from 2 sounds on the fly, it also has the gate and tone knob. The second footswitch also allows to activate the oscillation, in this version there is a OSC knob to fine tune the pitch, a 4 way rotary switch (the knob on the side) to turn off the oscillation or using 3 positions to fine tune the osc range (from high pitches to low tumbling pulses), 2 extra toggles one to add modulation to the osc and other to affect it’s tone. The knob on the top is to cut the fuzz signal to recreate some tremfuzz action. The second range knob also sets the amount of modulation to recreate the PWM tones. Expression/CV jack to add the modulation to the pedal.

Custom Copilot FX Broadcast LFO expression pedal splitter

lfo expression pedal

This is a custom version of the Broadcast, there are 3 independent channels, with the option that the output is the internal LFO or external CV input or expression pedal. Outs 1 and 2 have footswitches, while the the out 3 has a toggle to assign the desired output. The rate / tap ratios can be synced and controlled manually via the expression / cv in (has a toggle to disable this option), also the range of the out 1 can be controlled via the exp / cv in. CV out in case you need more outs.

Custom Copilot Fx Broadcast LFO pedal with external Sync

Tap Tempo LFO with external sync

I got a request to built a broadcast with the option of being able to sync the tap tempo part of the lfo with an external click instead of taping a switch. There’s a jack on tap where a cable is plugged with the click or a metronome, and when the pedal is in tap mode it will sync (and re-sync so it will stay with the beat), when nothing is plugged in the jack there’s a tap switch available. Other stuff was the invert toggle switch, it changes the sweep direction (so when the wave was up it will be down and vice versa), Exp/CV IN for manual sweep and control of the rate/tap ratios and also the range. CV out to expand via the broadband and bandwidth for more options.

Custom Copilot Fx Broadcast LFO Expression Pedal Splitter

Copilot Fx Broadcast Expression Pedal LFO

This is a custom Copilot Fx Broadcast with 3 independent outputs, this unit allows the user to control in real time 3 expression jacks inputs, giving the control and flexibility to shape the amount of sweep to your liking. The user requested a blank pink case (no artwork / silk screen). It has 3 independent expression outputs, each out has the option to be modulated via the internal LFO  (each one has range and aux controls to give you the option to mold the amount of sweep to your preference) or manually (by the source at the cv/exp in jack it could be an expression pedal or cv source; with nothing plugged in the jack , it will be like an expression pedal in the toe down position), so you can have an LFO at the out 1 and 2, while output 3 is controlled via an expression pedal.

Outputs 1 and 2 have footswitches to allow real time control while the 3rd output is via a toggle switch. Also the speed of the LFO or the tap multiplier rates can be controlled via the expression / cv input, and the range / amount of the output 1 can be synced to the expression / cv input, giving more options, an extra CV output jack can feed a broadband or bandwidth in case you need more outputs.

Brainzilla v2, custom LFO pedal

custom copilot fx broadcast pedal with step sequencer


Brainzilla v2, this is a custom pedal request, basically is the LFO section of the broadcast ,the rate / tap ratios multiplier now are linked to a step sequencer ( 3, 4 or 5 steps) instead of a single knob, now you can create a user programmable pattern with different rates/ratios. There are 5 knobs that selects the value of the rate or the multiplier (assigned to each step) and the other knob selects the waveform. Footswitches are reset (reset the sequencer steps back to 1), manual scroll (so every time you hit the footswitch the sequencer advances to the next step) and Tap (sets the rate of the lfo and if is in auto scroll mode, then it will scroll/advance to the next step automatically). CV output of the LFO and EXP/CV input in case you want to bypass the sequencer and plug an expression pedal and sweep manually or another CV source and control the rate/ratios with it. Toggles are amount of steps (3, 4 or 5), Scroll (manual scroll or auto scroll) and Tap/Rate (selects if the lfo rate is controlled via tap tempo or it will be a tuned to certain rate by the knob)
