Deep Vibes Optical Vibe Machine

A modern take on getting the classic vibe sound, squeezed into a neat little 1590B package.

Five knobs of tweakable optical vibe goodness that'll sound great whatever you plug into it. Guitar, bass, keyboards, maracas... well, maybe not everything.

You have Rate, Depth and Volume which you'd expect, but there are another couple of controls to keep things interesting. Voice alters the focus on the midrange which has a huge bearing on the overall sound. Throb brings in some crazy low end to rattle the walls with. All the fun of a UniVibe and then some.

If you opt for vertical-mount pots they have round shafts, so you'll need knobs that fix with a set screw. Feel free to wire in 'normal' pots if you prefer a splined shaft.

Hours of Fun 5 product stars
"Wonderful sounding vibe. Hours of fun can be had fine tuning the sound. Can evoke a lovely psychedelic swirl. Build was challenging but not impossible. Your eyes will eventually go from looking at resistors for so long. Soldering the pots at the end required a nimble hand. Nothing I couldn t manage. Pcb well layer out. Was great seeing the pulsing led for the first time. Though do yourself a favour and remember to put the chips in before you test it. You will feel like a berk if you forget. As ever, speedy delivery and an amazing value kit." DaveT - 18/10/2018
