Yes, keep C41 unpopulated. The photo that shows the channels from the backside of the vocoder is not a good reference as this version of the vocoder is populated with different versions of the channel boards that underwent a number of refinements.

And the packages are already on their way. :banana: That is correct. I've dropped them all off at the parcel shop today. They should start shipping tomorrow. Frankly, preparing everything for shipment was a PITA. I didn't realize what I've signed up for when I offered to ship the bundles. It's not ...

Document updates

Two updates: I've changed the vocoder output level tuning description for a higher volume. The Assembly and Tuning Guide has been updated accordingly. For those of you who've decided to build the LDO-based power supply, I've updated the BOM as I had to make a small change to ensure proper standby. B...

OK, my ordering process has started and so far it looks like all material will be shipped to me in the next two weeks. While I was able to accommodate three more builders over the weekend, that option is definitely no more available for anyone who's asking now.

Alright, we've just entered stage 2.

No more requests will be accepted at this time. I've already started ordering the material. Once I've received all parts, I will ship them to the six builders who've signed up for this project.

Folks, they look like locking switches but I've been told, they are not. Wouldn't make much sense for the equipment sold by this company in my opinion.

The switch itself is the same C&K switch, pretty good, but not exceptionally sturdy. you can get them at Mouser and RS. Ah, great. Thanks for the hint. Looks like the 7107P3YZQE. Not particularly...
