Your getting very close.   Maybe I missed a post.  Do you do the silk screen?

Heythar Faze! I've just been in the weeds making group logic interconnects and coding up the VU meter led's.  Not so photo-interesting until complete.

The first few I used a syringe and nail polish, but I think I'll pay extra to have FPE backfill since I'm sending out for engraving.

Thanks for your support man! Kinda sort of close. Still need to code-up and make cables for mute/solo logic and buffers, fader faceplates, integrate monitor controller. Once it's actually passing mixes I ought to build some aux returns, as there's 6 empty backplane slots available, but I reeeely need to get back to making music first!

Edit:  May need an additional PSU due to voltage drop. Tomorrow I'll install everything and see. Wish me a test that is smokeless and without incident!

Thanks.  Having fun with the Brother PT-E550, which pairs to P-touch editing software.
They also make a desktop "Touch Cube XP" printer that takes up to 1.5" labels.

Beware the E330; font size is not independently adjustable when stacking characters.

Faceplate engravings are in process and due to ship back in a week or so. Excited!

Top panels finished:



Burn-in went well-- no smoke! More testing of channels is needed to make sure all relays are energising despite voltage drop coming from PSU. Good news is the more "buttons in" relay assignments, the lower the amp draw.




Neopixels are working as intended. Using a single rotary encoder to adjust blocks of vu colors and brightness (will post on it later).

It’s very modern looking.   The switch and VU lights in the dark picture is great looking. 

The gray panels inset in aluminum extrusion reminds me of an 80 series NEVE.

API lineage and modern DIY.   Very impressive.
