Hi. I have just completed my build, and astonishingly (for me) it works. I think the case and components are nicely designed, with one exception, which I hope might be altered? The Midi Leds are not easy to build, the leads are long and have to be soldered to other leads, in addition the rotary encoder for snapshot touches and pushes down hard on the led leads especially as the instructions say to face the encoders outwards. My solution was to cut the leads short (thats probably not obvious but its not stated) and to turn the snapshot encoder round 180 degrees. BTW this is a V2 box with the three Midi ports and I wonder if the problem is caused by the new location of the three ports?

But thank you for a wonderful piece of hardware
