Sausage Fingers – glitchy, stuttery octave overdrive

Sausage Fingers

Sausage Fingers is based on the old BOSS OC2 schematic. We added some gain, took out the second octave, added a mids boost for the first octave and popped in a wee synth hack for some square wave fun.

Here’s a wee video

and here’s another!

 

Controls are:

bone – direct level

hair – gain

lard – one octave below

meat – mids boost for octave

gristle – synth hack (switch)

span – gate for synth hack

 

What does what?

Bone is your direct level, fully clockwise is just above parity. Lard is one octave below, it tracks better on bass than it does on guitar. Hair is the gain control for the direct level, but it also destabilises the octave. Meat is a mid boost for the octave, it really adds a lot of texture to the octave, making it sound less like a sine wave. Gristle is a switch for the synth hack, up is on, down is off. This will make your lower octave all square wavey. Span sets the gate of this lo-fi hack.
