I see...so Samodular is located in Germany? Good to know in case I need some knobs or so :-)

Reason for asking was...France (where Boops is located) has an abundance of rules and different tax categories for running small businesses..I've lived there for 5 years.
Yes same here. Tons of rules but you have to deal with it if you want to run a legit business.

FYI

French people like me use to choose for small bizness a statut,called ‘auto entrepreneurs’ or micro entreprise before starting with a company,with some differents limits,pic attached ,following the nature of the bizness.

There is no vat Id ,its called ‘siret and siren number’ ,we have to declare our ‘chiffre d’affaire’ and then pay fees ,Tva at some point ,fees for our old days and health protection.
Rules needed for a web store is a different subject.



Now please guys open another thread with these subjects elsewhere
Here it’s the diy section,thanks

Can the AUX/Noise PCB be used with a 208p build or is it specific to your 208x version?

Exactly ...10 for the original design and one more for the reverb cv control (X mod)
The dual 3/2 (2 single matched )are used for the card 10 and 11 function : Low pass gate ,then no need to match 2 singles vtl5c3
You will find this info soon on the build thread.

I think you will find switches color caps too at syntcube,following your personal finish

Boops, building a small buchla (259, 281, 292, 266, 257). I see 259 in the first post, any rough timeline on that? Any chance any of the others get the X treatment?

THanks!
