This may be of use to the guys starting out; my build of the Soundlab in stages.

This thread is basically about the circuit build, and not so much about the front panel. Maybe someone will be kind enough to do a tutorial on panel making to compliment this thread.

First off, I used a 4mm drill bit (slightly wider than the copper tracks of the stripboard) and gave it a couple of light turns to cut the necessary tracks. It is absolutely essential to get this right, double check, and double check again before you cut! As you will see I made a mistake on my board, but this was rectified by bridging the erroneous cut with a short piece of wire (tweezers are very useful for small jobs like this)

It is always good practice to populate every circuit in stages, starting with the lowest profile components first, in this case the wire links. I always pre-bend the pins before mounting.

Next the horizontally mounted resistors. Notice they are all of the same orientation, makes it a lot easier should I need to troubleshoot later.

I then added the IC sockets and smaller capacitors, also I decided to use a female pin strip for connecting the panel components.

Continuing to add the components until the tallest components were in.

Next job was to wire the panel. I didn't have all the components to start with, but enough to be getting on with some of the wiring.

Once I got the required components, finished the panel wiring.

Special thanks to Ray Wilson, Uncle Krunkus and everyone involved for making this project possible.

very cool Smile

fwiw, I've got an exact replica upstairs of picture 2. It stopped there as this was the point when Ray's boards arrived. Now I also have a Ray board populated with resistors and erm.... not much else Embarassed Laughing

I had a friend in the early '90s who had a broken TR606 on his wall.

A very nice job and nice pictures. This will help someone who is doing a stripboard project for the first time. Thanks.

If it's any consolation Tom, I think the level of concentration required to get a stripboard that size working perfectly is something which comes and goes. I doubt I'd have the chops to even begin one these days! Laughing
