The Meanwell DKE10A-15 is a much cheaper option than the Artesyn part. Currently £15.06 at Mouser.
Can't argue with that. I've opened the sequencer up now and my board is actually the REV 2 from May 2nd 2015.Can I still use that converter?
Yes indeed you can. The dc/dc converter only changed at Rev 6.

Does anyone have a good source for 17 Switchcraft 46313LDRX? Mouser is out of stock of them for now, and they would've been $2.90 per unit. Other distributors were more expensive, which at 17 adds up.

I believe DSL-Man/LED-Man may have a set of them. He’s in Germany though. I presume you are building a Rev1-4 PCB.

The Simple Divider PCB that came with my Synthcube 1601 kit is white with white lettering. :despair: Even with a magnifying glass, my old eyes can barely read the component layout. Are there any photos of that board with lettering that's a different color than the board?

No need to swap it out, a photo would be fine as long as it's v0.9. Thanks!

Sometimes a cellphone photo taken at an angle to the light can show things and magnify in useful ways. Even better when uploaded to a large viewing screen.

Are you sorted for these switches now? The only place that has them available now at a sensible price seems to be tti, https://www.tti.com/content/ttiinc/en/a ... Z0QAvD_BwE

Agreed. About the only way I can read it is to look at a reflection of a light off of the board. I finally found a photo of a board with black lines that should help me out.

I think my set is arriving from LED-man today - should be the last thing I need to finish this up!
