Strange, took it out of the case and it works fine. Works fine back in the case now too. Oh well

I've been looking at the Blueprint schematic.

I see that the X1 connectors are the row at the top of the board for connecting the tap tempo daughter board, and X2 is the 10k resistor network.

For those who want to build Blueprint with tap tempo, here's the configuration:



I have spent days and night to figure about it. Peter helped me out with the wiring.

Here's the guideline:

1. Build the Blueprint, follow MBP Build Doc

2. Leave the JUMP open and jumper the TAP. I'd suggest to get 0 Ohm resistor and put it on the back in case you don't like it and wanted to switch to normal. For my Blueprint, I do socket those resistors so it's easier for me to debug. It's recommended but the PT2399 will be a tight fit. Watch out while you're soldering.

3. Get the Tap Tempo board from UK Electronics.

4. Populate the Tap Tempo and wire the tap tempo board to Blueprint board. Follow the picture above.

5. Test it out and hopefully, it works!

thanks for sharing that info.  I have built the Blueprint and may try this mod.
