I'm looking forward to reading the documentation for the FV-1 pedals.  The designs on the Wavelord and Headtrip almost look copper plated.  Very impressive.

That's because they are.   ;)
Brian etched black copper-clad PCBs for those faceplates.

Where did you get these black copper boards I found some on Ebay. I would love to try this.

Perfect ordered some! Did you sand the backs to get them to sit flat?

Dreamtime doc is up. Hopefully I'll have one more doc up today and the rest tomorrow.

Super cool!

The build docs are very nice and the SMD practice pads were a great idea.  I'm looking forward to ordering some of these, when they're available.

So, on the Headtrip I've decided to include the SpinCAD file used to make the patches for the project. I'm really hoping people will take advantage of that to start exploring SpinCAD to program their own stuff. It's really pretty easy once you get the hang of it. That doc should be up tomorrow. I still plan on doing an introductory tutorial to SpinCAD before the end of the year. Things is pretty crazy ATM, though.

That is awesome! Iím really glad you are doing that. Iíve been wanting to get into SpinCAD and fv-1 programming, but havenít had the time to learn.

Nice job on the Dreamtime docs!  I'm looking forward to practicing the SMD soldering.  And a super compact design using the separate board for the pots.

That is a great idea.  I was motivated to learn spincad and spent a few hours on it and just gave up
