3,5mm socket

Hello,

quick question:

From another project I have 3,5mm audio sockets that have switching functionality. Meaning, if nothing is plugged in, contacts are shortcut. When you plug in the jack, the contact is opened.

Can i use these for the vocoder?

Best regards

Re: My frontplate

To anyone who might be interested in the look with bigger knobs. And, yes there is a scratch ... grrrr :evil: The combination of small and big knobs looks great !

I'm going to use sealed/dustproof pots instead of the alphas, for example, and yes I know that means opening up the holes for the pots to 3/8". Please be really careful when drilling out holes. I have repeatedly done this with the first prototype front panel and I would like to inform you that the ...

Hello Vlado and 23mm black I just want to inform you that the potmeters are at a pitch of 32mm, so a 23mm knob might be too big. Anyhow,the scale ring has a 15.4 mm diameter,so big knobs will hide the scale. But of course, that's your call. Can anyone please leave some comments about the diameters?...

As solder pins are already suggested, the counter part (dont know the english word) is missing. Hi Vlado, Actually you have some options here: - if you do not want to m...
