changing c6 to 1uF seems to fix it.
Thanks!

For a beginner, anyone comment on how hard a build the Synthcube kit would be? (https://synthcube.com/cart/vpme-de-zerosccope). Couldn't find instructions for the kit so not sure what needs to be soldered. I've only built a mult otherwise.

I really want to pick one of these up, but think it would be far more fun to build my own instead of picking up complete.

the build guide is linked in the first post on page one

Thanks, I didn't know if the Synthcube kit was the same build or not.

This was my first SMD DIY kit. I do have a hot air reflow/normal iron solder station, so was a good chance to use the half of the unit that hadn't been employed before.

The kit went together quickly, with the only issue being a near indetectable (to me) solder bridge on the two right-hand legs of IC5. I only noticed it when I sent a picture to Vladimir and happened to zoom in. Once I cleaned that bridge up, everything worked as advertised.

My build was done with the SynthCube kit, but I've since purchased another set of boards direct from Vladimir, all the components from Mouser (screens from eBay) and have no (immediate) use for a second one. That was my backup plan if I'd completely mucked up the first. Maybe I should start another case. ;)

Huge thanks to Vladimir for helping me, via email, working through troubleshooting and for the quick ship on the second set of boards!

Dear AV500

I put together my ZeroScope,

It is amazing.

My second channel isn't working, I thought maybe I flipped C2 and R2.

I messed up the board a bit trying to fix it.

Could I have a the board trace drawing so I can figure out how to fix this?

Thanks so much!

Dan

Got the Synthcube kit and it went together great. Great little utility and a fantastic form factor for the cost.
