Arduino Stomp Box…

My Arduino based stomp box is complete. I changed the output circuit to a simpler design because the original one was not working although I suspect the real cause was that I had the wiring to pins 4 and 5 on the MIDI socket the wrong way around! This is the new circuit:

The hardest part of the whole process has probably been planning the physical layout of the connectors on the prototyping board and the placement of everything in the metal box I am using for a case. It’s all pretty tight in there. This is what the inside of the box looks like:

And this is the outside:

The left button controls the bypass setting on the effects unit and the right button switches between two patches. The LEDs just indicate the currently selected setting for each switch. There’s also a power switch on the other side of the box away from the camera but other than that, that is all there is to it.

I just need a cool decal now to fill all that blank space on the box and I am in business!
