looks like they're optional, you can use 1nf caps instead if you like

In previous modules Olivier has used the same input section without those parts, so I reckon you can get away with omitting them entirely. They are there to offer some protection from electrostatic discharge. I don't know if Plaits is more likely to suffer from this than previous modules. More likely it is just an improved design for that section.

Interesting, a lot of shrinking involved?
Do you have a github where you share the files?

Mostly 0603 - just a bit tighter on the board

You can get the files for the pcbs at Jim Matheson's Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/jakplugg

Yeah, I don't mind people trying to earn a tiny bit with their design work if they feel like it, even derivative. Somehow it just felt kind of a weird to use a distributed version control system (especially one mostly used to host open-source software projects) to distribute password protected zip file.

But then again, it has sort of '90s old-school charm in some inexplicable way... Which makes me think it would be funny to distribute the password protected archive eg. on one of those "please wait for 15 seconds to start your download" upload services :hihi:

(I do still feel kind of uncomfortable about the whole commercial aspect of the clone / derivative business, but that's probably discussed to death by now and not really my business in the first place...)

It has indeed been discussed well past death! And probably best taken over to one of the threads that focus on it - was just posting a photo, not meaning to clog this post - apologies

Though all his other stuff, and this one in a couple of weeks, are freely available for all to enjoy - this includes his wonderful original designs like the Orgone Accumulator

Yeah, I didn't really mean my comment to come across in such a negative way that it looks like now :) The full explanation is probably a bit too long story / train of thought to be interesting, but using Github to host a password protected binary file with instructions on how to obtain the password felt funny to me in sort of a nostalgic way.

(I'm aware of mr. Neutron Sound's projects and have built them & copied ideas from them, so no disrespect meant...)

Are both these panels aluminum? Where'd you get them done?
I just dug through the files on github but only barely understand what's all there. Was hoping there would be a pcb panel like nanoRings

There's a diptrace panel file available in the repositories - it's not this design, but you can export gerbers and have them made at pcbway, etc

These are pcb

You do indeed. He's looking to make pcb ones for himself though.
