LEFT: A PHOTOCELL is engaged (theremin-like function).
CENTER: Both PHOTOCELL and LFO are off.
RIGHT: An LFO is engaged (tremolo-like function).
To use either THER or LFO, you have to engage one of the switches in the MISSION CONTROL section. You can try any of the following settings:
1A+2B or other combinations you might discover.
A recommended starting point is setting the GAIN KNOB to max (as most drones will require you to max the GAIN KNOB to work).
The Evil Pumpkin can be turned on or off, and the THER/LFO will remain operational, but the sound will change accordingly.
THER/LFO will work regardless of whether the input jack is plugged or unplugged. However, leaving the input jack unplugged is recommended when the Evil Pumpkin is used as a standalone sound generator/drone.
In order to make the Photocell work, you will also need to engage the switches on the MISSION CONTROL section in a way that the Evil Pumpkin starts producing a drone sound. Additionally, you may have to maximize the GAIN KNOB for the most pronounced effect.
The Photocell is controlled by feeding light to the sensor. You can use any light source you like, ranging from the ambient light in the room to direct light from a mobile phone flashlight, etc.
