Has anyone considered using that chip? theres more external parts required including a 2MHz crystal but that would still probably be cheaper than using two 2399s? also the delay times can be set by a microcontroller using a serial data input. probably a lil more complicated than necessary but there is an "easy mode" that uses four digital inputs (DL1 - DL4) to set the delay times in steps. this could be done with say internal dip switches for presetting the delay time. or if you wanted it adjustable a microcontroller could still be used even in easy mode. for example, if you wanted to avoid serial programming and the timings involved you could use a small little pic microcontroller with an adc. hook up a pot to ground and 5V and use the wiper as an input. by reading the ADC level you could set 4 digital outputs to control the delay times. or even ditch the ADC and use digital switch to toggle through the delay times.
Does this sound interesting to anybody? Is there a reason this hasn't been looked at instead of using two pt2399s? I mean, other than some of the reasons i mentioned above, is there any limitations that i've missed or overlooked? I haven't looked at flanger pedals so don't know too much about the circuit requirements etc.
