Four passive attenuators on one board - four pots, eight jacks and possibly the simplest build there is. An ideal project for beginners that's not only simple to put together but is also incredibly handy - never underestimate how useful attenuators are.
100% through-hole construction - no surface mount parts or wilfully weird/rare components, low parts count and completely passive. Just because it's a simple build doesn't mean it can be useful too.
How you actually mount the board is entirely up to you, although it is designed to fit behind a 6HP (30mm) wide panel with the board parallel to the panel. The board itself measures approximately 94mm x 29mm
By buying this PCB, it is assumed that you know what you're doing and are able to source appropriate componentry. The board has a HASL finish so is not lead-free - as long as you exercise common sense and don't go licking the solder pads you'll be good.

I've been a musician for a while now - up until quite recently my weapon of choice was a bass guitar, but having fallen down the rabbit hole that is modular synthesis I have a new way to make noise ...
I started out the usual way: buy a rack and a bunch of modules (ADSR, VCA, VCO, that kind of thing) and start making noises. Then I discovered the DIY scene and it all snowballed from there - sequencers, filters, logic modules ... four racks full of noisemakers later and I'm still not done.
I'm a big believer in the KISS principle - Keep It Simple, Stupid! If you want all-singing, all-dancing multifunction modules then this really isn't the place for you - I prefer to build modules to do one thing and (hopefully) do it well. This is a rule I follow when I develop software, and hardware is no different.
The stuff you'll find here will generally be 'excess' from a run of boards - the underlying designs will have been tested and known to work, all you need to do is source appropriate componentry and do a build. I'm not going to make any claims that I'm the world's best circuit designer, but hey, if it ain't broke ...
For the really curious, despite working as a software developer I do have a PhD in theoretical physics, specifically the numerical simulation of explosions. It isn't nearly as interesting as you might imagine :-p
