Well the parts have started to arrive (new pots are much better!)

Well I got my large order from Digikey today, still no PCBs yet though.  Here are a few pics, also you can see the new pots I found are much better, taller, and larger shaft (They feel very smooth also) and best of all they are a lot cheaper!

Also I don’t know why I didn’t do this before but I now have the LCD running a 38400 baud, instead of 9600 and that speeds up everything so that means better sound and cooler sounds too.  I’ll post a sample in the next day.

Found the LCD

Well I found a supply of LCDs for a good price, under 5 bux each, that’s pretty cheap for a backlit 16×2 LCD.  I really didn’t want a green screen so that made it a bit harder but these are blue with white letters, just looks better then green with black letters in my mind, so I’ll have to sit down and figure out the price for one whole kit.

Now just a matter of everything arriving…
