Instead of ordering expensive switch buttons, just gunna make ‘em out of wood doweling and use a chisel to make the square receiving holes.
Have you used this method before? It seems to me that cutting into the end grain of the wood is more likely to cause it to split. Maybe if you drill a hole close to the right size and then square it off?

Havnt installed the switch caps yet, but making good progress there. I may just glue them on once everything is tested and installed as the tolerances for the size of the caps is very tight.

I got the breakout THAT 1646 output cards today so I decided to hook everything up to my bench supply and test it. IT WORKS. Passing signal correctly to the scope and only pulling about 20mA which is exactly right (~15mA for the Tirdent board and 5mA for the Breakout card.)

Next step is to test a mic and see if the EQ is working properly once the kids go to bed!

Then once I get the mains transformer and the regulator board, I will be able to take this thing to the studio for a proper go.

Tested with my bench supply and its a bit noisy but it works!

Mic, line and EQ are all working properly and sound good!

Im going to try and supply with (4) 9V batteries so I can take it to the studio and do a proper test as well as make sure the noise floor is not from the circuit itself.
