I received my boards and am looking forward to getting started building them!

The quality of the boards and documentation is excellent.
The SMT parts are pre-soldered.

There are 2 BP1 boards:

A single MB1 I/O board is required:

4 DS1 boards are required which are supplied on 2 panels. This is one panel containing 4 display drivers.
Jeff supplied an LED alignment jig which will make building the DS1 super-easy.

I also received a box of pre-programmed processors.
There are 9 total.

I got mine a few weeks ago. Finalized the BOM’s with suppliers yesterday (been a busy few weeks).

Everything should be here next week - very excited over here!

The documents are nicely written and the boards are very well thought out.

Did I mention that I am excited!

Congratulations!
I need to get crackin' on mine - I have a backlog of boards to build.
Have you run audio through it yet?

Ortelligent Clone with a Gentner Prism II.

Audio in the video is from the Gentner - didn't think to switch it before I recorded (maybe next time).

I had to re-work the front panel file that was supplied - as the printer at FPE was down for repairs. I had to regenerate all of the "drawings" to be engravings, and redo all of the text. Unfortunately both the fonts for the logo and the original text were not compatible. So the logo didn't make it on the panel (sorry flyboy71) for this one.
