Push the wires of the battery snap through the unplated hole on the leftmost side of the PCB.
Tie a simple knot in the wires for some added strain relief.
Solder the wires into the board, the red wire (positive) should be at the edge of the PCB, the black wire (GND) should be furthest from the edge.
Insert the potentiometers into the board, some forming of the legs may be required to get a snug fit.
TIP:Locate and place the single 500k frequency pot first (marked B504 on the bottom) before placing the remaining 9 10k pots (marked B103 on the bottom)
The solder does not need to completely fill the mechanical holes to be reliable but good wetting must be made between pad and pin.
Solder the Mono jacks on the underside of the PCB, they should snap onto the footprint site. Do not bend the pins.
Install the switch fitting snugly against the PCB.
Take the last 10k resistor and bend as shown, then trim the pins nice and short.
Solder the resistor between pins 7 & 8 of the 4093 IC.
(The two pins closest to the edge of the board, below the A)
By now your PCB should look like this with all the components added.
Screw in the plastic stand-offs, add a battery and hook up a noise making machine of your choice for some LO-FI loops n bloops!
The expansion header was designed so that you could interface to other kits without the need for expensive cables. In particular the CVP_1 (pin 5) and CVP_2 (pin 4) are scaled outputs specifically for use with Atari Punk Consoles, their output is identical to one another. The GATE_OUT(pin 3) and CV_OUT(pin 2) pins are identical to the mono jack outputs.
9V/Battery(pin 6) and GND(pin 1) are provided so that only one battery is needed to run a sequencer and an Atari Punk Console.
