ADDAC210 Open Heart Surgery Frontpanel layout
All front panel parts: pots, switches, jacks... are available at one point in the top female headers, for ex: Pot 1&2 are available at the top left 2nd connector printed "POT 1/2" pot legs are then identified by LCR, or Left Lug, Center Lug, Right Lug.
Switches are marked UCD: up pin, center pin, down pin.
Jacks are marked: LR, left, rigth for stereo jack & T,SW for tip and tip switch, jack sleeves are internally connected to ground.
This way all points are available directly from the top.
The use of up, down, left, right, is meant to be more immediate while recalling which pins are which.

A jumper wires pack will also be provided. / An optional parts kit will also be available. 

Estimated Price: 270-320€
Early bird price: 250€
If 5 users commit to this ADDAC willl push it into production and plan of having these ready in 3-5 weeks!
