1 - 74HC4067 Multiplexer (Do NOT get the 74HCT4067 version)
(NOTE: The DIP package of the 74HC4067 seems to be going away. If you want to experiment with this circuit on a breadboard you can use a breakout board like this one from SparkFun)

3 -  SPST toggle switches
15 - Potentiometers - 10K - Linear Taper
1 - 5 Pin Midi Jack
1 - 6N138 Optocoupler
1 - 1n4148 Diode
1 - 220 Ohm Resistor (1/4 Watt)
1 - 470 Ohm Resistor (1/4 Watt)
Hook-up wire

Power supply circuit (optional)
1 - Barrel Jack - 2.1mm
1 - LM7805 Regulator
1 - 1N4001 Diode
1 - 100uF Electrolytic Capacitor
1 - 10uF Electrolytic Capacitor


  1. there supposed to be a video with this Dave? Looks pretty interesting so far.

  2. Software on the other hand is not a physical item, and is only a program written as instructions for hardware to follow. One simple example of this is used referring to yourself, a grocery list and a pencil. minecraft server hosting

  3. when I read a blog, I hope so it doesnt disappoint me approximately that one. I mean, Yes, it was my option to read, but When i thought youd have some thing interesting to state. All I hear is often a lot of whining about something you could fix if you ever werent too busy in search of attention. panasonic tx-49dxx689 test

  4. Easily, the article is actually the best topic on this registry related issue. I fit in with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your next updates. best roombas for hardwood floors

  5. Great build, but can you post the kicad files?

  6. I, too, am looking for the KiCad library for the Teensy Audio Shield!!! Do you know where I can find the files???
    great project! i have both my Teensy 4.1 & 4.x Audio Shield ready to go!!!!
