btw... small error in the MOTM builders guide/BOM

"Audio Output" connectors are detailed as MTA156 in column 3 but MTA100 in column 7. its clear anyway just thought id mention.
Thanks for reporting Ben, I'll include this in the next BOM update.

FYI, due to a couple of questions: DIY kits in MU and MOTM are still available

Swapped the LED buttons to be correct, and reflowed the CPU and all seems to be working now...

:goo: :goo: :sb:

Looking forward to vastly under using this module because I have forgotten all the settings... like all MI stuff.

But it was a nice build with the only issues user error....

all working and having fun this weekend with Chords setting through Oakley phaser.

noticed that the Corsynth C105 lo-fi next to it is bleeding into the Osc pitch.

Could this be my badly managed audio wiring or are there any other parts to check for insulation etc?

will do some tests to see if its just proximity but not worried as longer term the corsynth module will not sit next to it.

Hello Brian,
I just a question regarding the audio wiring connection.
First off you specify a COAX wire, is this to cut down on noise in the audio channel?
Yes.
With that though, it appears that maybe you have the core wire going to one pin and the shield going to an adjacent pin. Is this correct? And does it matter what pin the core connects to as opposed to the shield (obviously this is for the 2 sets of the 2 wires).
Maybe you could send me a better photo or a sketch.
Shields are on the inside, core wire on the outsides.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
Martin
