It would be nice to see some photos of people's finished builds. I always fear DIY sales getting stockpiled for the after-life.. : / Not here! :mrgreen: I built the actual PCB months ago, so within a couple of days of getting your panel (thanks!), I had it mounted.

Indeed.

The build guide for NLC's Plague of Demons itself prescribes something similar as a mod.

As above, it's SMT, and probably not a great choice for a first build. I'd get a couple other easier SMT modules to start with and get your skills in order.

You have to source, but the main PCB has a mouser cart link at the bottom of the page.

Went to the cart, looks like orders are open. Whether or not that means shipping immediately I can't tell.

But there's certainly an option to buy.

Thanks again very much. I'm really glad you're making these!

I'm going to wait on the Utilities module right now; my backlog of builds is getting a little long, and I need to make space.

So yes, just one EF panel please.

Good stuff - i think Whoop John posted earlier about pcbs - i think it was the last post on the env follower thread (ill check in a moment) Could i ask you (and anyone else) to make it 100% clear if you do want a panel, so as there is no ambiguity. Ill start a list in the first post on this thread....

Outstanding!

I'll be ordering one for the Envelope Follower for sure, but seeing the faceplate for the utilties has me thinking I may order that too, and the PCB if Whoop John still has any.

Yeah, it seems strange that the LED *wouldn't* consistently reflect the output signal, especially as the output itself is working as expected. I used 4.7K resistors, maybe I need to up the values or something Just to confirm, I just did a quick test and indeed my LEDs (on all three) are in sync wit...

The off bit that I'm experiencing is that, more often than not, the gate 3 LED (and sometimes the gate 2 but less so) will illuminate steadily for a period of time but the output is actually sending periodic gates as expected, it's just the LED doesn't always flash in time with those... is that nor...

Thanks!

As above, understood.

It's more just an experiment, to save panel space.

I'm considering it a failure.

Neither of those is really a "trimmer" - they're both panel controls, one with a plastic shaft and the other with a metal shaft. They should be electrically identical (assuming they have the same resistance value). Great. This is what I assumed...but I wanted to check. I don't know what you mean by...
