Hi,

A question regarding my circles V2 diy project from Synthcube. The module seems so be working. Led lights up, rhythms come out and the encoders work as intended. But only with the internal clock. An external clock source (tried a shakmat clock o pawn and a lfo) does not work. I’m sure I made an error somewhere.

Can someone give me some tips on where to start looking?

Regards,

Hello!

I just finished a synthcube kit and I am only getting the encoder on the bottom lighting up and the F button. I press it and it goes through it's menues and reacts to clock but the other two encoders are off and none of the LEDs are on. Any ideas? I reflowed all the chips, orientation is correct, all solder points look ok.

I did notice that C1 on the back PCB didn't have a capacitor, is that supposed to be populated?

Thanks!

For what it's worth, mine (also synthcube kit) does have C2 installed, though I don't know enough about it to know if that's you're issue. Should be present according to the BOM.

Edit; sorry, meant C1 where I typed C2.
