Deville Click-Less Bypass.

Schematic - Attached to this post.

Hex Code - Attached to this post. You will need to change the file extension from ".doc" to ".hex" (the board would not upload a file with the .hex extension). Why am I only posting the hex code? Because that's all a MCU hacking service can provide. It works in both the Click-Less Bypass Kit as well as Deville pedals (I used a Buzzmaster as the test unit)

Caveats - The Deville Click-Less is one of the quietest relay switching systems I've come across but it falls just shy of perfect.
1) There's a faint ticking noise when the pedal is engaged. Adding 1µF electrolytic in series with the 1k resistor/LED from pin 7 of the MCU remedies it.
2) There's an audible squeaking/metallic ping when the footswitch is engaged. I haven't figured out how to rectify that.
3) Both of these issues are present in the Buzzmaster I used as the test unit with the MCU that came with the pedal, so I do not believe the hex code is corrupt.

The Click-Less Bypass system was sold to Mammoth Electronics a few years back but they changed a few things (it's now been phased out of their product line completely)...no LED ticking or footswitch squeak/ping but there is an audible "thump" when switching the pedal on and off. Also, I was told by the hacking service that it's near impossible to convert the hex code back to the source code. There are pieces of software that can do it but apparently the results can be incomplete and/or unreliable.

What an idiot you are! Do not worry, because it is a scam that you sold to Mammoth, the product is very bad, and you think you are a genius. A real disaster, your ego is going to kill you.
