Hi all-
I am building a Noise Toaster, but I am using wood for the faceplate. It's all housed in a wooden box. I have only built modules with metal faceplates in the past. If not using a metal faceplate, is there anything special I need to do, grounding-wise?

You could try that aluminum tape they sell at hardware stores for heating pipes about 3" wide and cover the back of your faceplate. or a chunk of metal flashing for roofing and cut it drill it and the pots should hould it in place.

My question with this is: Do I tie the panel ground with the virtual ground or isolate the panel ground with the toaster circuit as shown in the panel wiring?

I might add that I'm building the toaster VCF/VCA/LFO in a box with some other generators and sending out only line level signals instead of putting it through a 386 amp.

You don't need to ground the front panels at all. That is usually only needed, for safety reasons, if you are using metal panels and have mains electricity going into your box. With wooden panels and just a battery supply, there is no need.
