MFOS Sub-Commander Project
This circuit will not take the signal from your guitar, analyze it's frequency, generate a proportional control voltage and then control a multiple waveform oscillator so that you can make your guitar sound like a Moog synthesizer. What it does do is buffer your guitar's signal, create a pulse waveform (at the same frequency as the guitar) divide it's frequency in half (sub-octave generator) and generate a gate when you pluck a string so you can control the SUB-COMMANDER's AR generators. It permits you to mix the sub-octave, original signal and pulse signal and then route them through the SUB-COMMANDER's VCF and VCA. By doing this you can generate some very cool synthesizer-like sounds and effects for your electric guitar.
This is not to be compared with units that require a hex pickup and special processing to drive frequency to voltage convertors or MIDI controllers.
