I would buy (1) of the assembled prototypes if you made any purchasable as relics,
then at least another of the the finalized version you settle on down the road

I hadn’t been paying attention to this because I thought it was a distortion box, which is not high on the list. The limiter function is very interesting to me though. I might need one of these.

Thanks everyone.

I just got a shipment notice from ExpressPCB - the boards should be here Wednesday.

I've had orders to ship and boards to build during the break.

I need to get the Waveulator BOM together.
There's a couple of 1% values I need to get from Mouser.

I have a larger quantity of PC boards on order to be here in a few days.

A construction thread has been started in the Build section of the forum. viewtopic.php?p=17330#p17330

Thanks Doug and everyone!
The additional boards are expected in a couple of days.
I'm working on the assembly instructions now.

Now that I have real PC boards I hope to address the Ratio control stepped switch taper.
I found that I mostly used the top third of the control which suggests an anti-log-like taper.
For a pot a bowing resistor might be useful.
