Of the six that I bought, I finished five of them last night, between 7:00pm and 9:30pm. They're very easy to build - usually no more than a dozen parts to solder(jacks & pots, maybe a couple of other components), because it's mostly pre-soldered surface mount.

Here's what you get in the Noise Source kit:


All of the kits are pretty similar to this, and they're all approximately the same size PCB, for those curious about module depth and whatnot.

Here is the finished module:

Thanks for the photos!

Is the power header one of the parts that you solder yourself?

awesome!
thanks a lot for posting those, i am pretty excited to order some now
i like how they included mounting holes even though using them with their panels and configurations dont require that

SlayerBadger!

thanks glacial23, just as I thought these should be really easy to banana up. I was hoping the jacks came unattached to the boards, which looks like the case w00t

With the noise gen. the site says it can be reconfigured to use a Zener instead of a transistor for the noise, which one did you go for?

It came with the Zener, so that's what I used. In the documentation, it says it comes shipped with one or the other. hmmm.....

I should really wire up a .156->.100 power cable and try some of these out...

The description of the noise module on the PAiA site gave me the impression
that the transistor was always used, and that the zener diode was optional.
I could be wrong though.

In either case, it would be cool to put a switch on the front panel to bypass the zener diode for a different noise flavor.

Thanks for the pics!

And echoing what DGTom said about looking good for bananafication.
(note that some other modules are likely to have some normalisation - but we know that adding switches often improves things anyway!)

Do they come with schematics? Particularly interesting to see if any changes are need really to run off 'standard' frac +/-15v rather than the Paia choice of local +/-12v regulation (you can see the 3812 and 3912 on the PCBs - you can probably remove or short these out for running direct off 15v supplies)
