That looks great Amanita! Even if the colours are not my first choice :lol:
So.. deliberate mistake.. Down & Up labelling on the front panel per chance? I'd be pissed too after all that hard work! :oops: Still, I'd bet that with a little ingenuity, you could rejig the wiring/tracks on the PCB to swap the 2 buttons functions over. I think that would be easier than having a new front panel made up, or the existing one corrected :wink:

Yep - thats it! I really should have checked my drawings better.....
After much contemplation of ways to put this right (i agree a bit of track cutting for the LEDs and tact switches would do it) i decided i cant be bothered - its only me using it and its a PITA to take to bits.

x0xb0x 230 is alive (after a prolonged period of hiding in a cupboard half finished).

I've totally forgotten what most of the mods do - bass boost is there and some resonance increase, can't remember the others.
Check out my cool grubby finger marks on the face plate :D

Awesome!
do you think about to sell this PCBs or something like a kit?
I'm thinking about re-manufacturing those 303 plastic enclosures ;)

:shock: You are on a roll with this stuff! :wink: Although there is that guy that makes billet(?) aluminium replacement 303 cases already. Then again, the original plastic cases still manage to look better, in my opinion. The aluminium ones I saw were anodised in wild colours.

great job ripe, i guess the only drawback here is that you need a 303 case

@phono
Also a 606 case can be used..
And I've seen fake plastic 303 cases before.. I think technology transplant has something to do with that.


What I'm really wondering about is HOW the sequencer works on that thing.
Because, well... It looks like a 303 and all.. not like a x0x.. So there's different leds/buttons/functionality

I was really stunned after seeing those pics... Like.. "someone finally did it right" feeling.
put me on the list for 5 of those ;)

Hi,
Not finished at all, but not far away. Still sounds very impressiv. The housing is made from a lasercut sheet metal and some wood. Taking me some hours to find nice knobs for the Box.
The rare parts I got from australia, thanks a lot!
