Following on from Veroboard and the Sequencer bus described in Sequencer notes, the sequencer bus consists of two separate stripboard designs:
- The first step
- The second and subsequent steps all use the same board layout
With respect to the 9T24H board used for the Second (and subsequent) Step Sequencer Bus v0.7… as there are 9 of these boards for the 2-10 potentiometer stages for each sequencer (10 step) stage, is it not more economical to combine on one larger board, of n x 9 Tracks?
Likewise, the v0.7 of the First Step Sequence Bus, requires 12T30H, will that not fit multiple times on a larger size board?

I needed cheap wire, and lots of it. For breadboard and veroboard. 0.6 mm 22 SWG

Too rushed for an amusing title…
Here are a number of ADSR circuits, taken from the fantastic Yusynth website (which I came across after reading StackExchange – Building a synthesizer with no prior experience) – in particular the Archives page.
The circuits are described within PDFs, and I drew up the corresponding schematic and board files in EagleCAD.
The EagleCAD files available on github, although seeing as Micro$oft have just acquired Github, they may not be there for very long… Five minutes later – #movingtogitlab!
The EagleCAD files available on Gitlab: Testkins/ADSR-Waveform-generator

Using KiCad…. for the first time. Here we are using it to create Veroboard/Stripboard layouts – without first laying out the schematic. My reason for this is that I had already used EagleCAD to draw up the schematic, and then, like most people, realised that the board size was too limited, in the freeware version (100 x 80 mm (4″ x 3.2″)), to allow all of the components to be placed.
Note that this article applies to version 4.0.7. Version 5 should be released soon, see When will Kicad 5 be available? – Software – KiCad.info Forums, and should have a much better user experience, as well as being able to import EagleCAD files.

This is a great webpage, written by Mike Perks in 2005, which I came across whilst reading Stripboard. Unfortunately, the link therein was dead and it took me a while to locate it. I have taken the liberty to reproduce it here, as it may get lost again, in the sands of time, that is the web. The zip file is here: http://archive.is/download/Pz2iz.zip

So you have your schematic, and don’t want to make a PCB. Can you get EagleCAD to autoroute the circuit on a veroboard/stripboard?
