The Sidescroller MK2 is an insane 8-bit sounding fuzz. It does octave down, octave up and pulse width modulation.

The pulse width modulation signal blended with the octave down gives it a retro game'ish sound that brings backs memories of the 8-bit era of videogaming. Sound-wise it's pretty close to the Arcadiator. It is kind of a ?Arcadiator Light? since it has less control and fits in a 125B. It does however have a unique feature: an LFO that modulates the pulse width, giving it that C64 phaser'ish sound .

This circuit works best with high output pickups. It is a gated circuit by nature of the CMOS logic. If you are using single coils and need more sustain, try a boost or compressor in front. To improve tracking of the octave down, use your neck pickup with the tone rolled off.
