Just get an assembly house such as JLCPCB to build it for you so then you can use the smallest available, subject to power dissipation limits of course.   QFN ICs and 0402 resistors, 0603 capacitors.   They'll do a far better job than anybody in their own workshop.

Speaking of low power parts, I wonder one thing. What are everyone's absolutely smallest "useable for synths" parts? Mainly I mean:
- op amps
- transistors (bjt or fet)
- VCAs (if at all??)
- linear and switching voltage regulators
- other semiconductors you deem relevant

I'm hoping for stuff like BGA or even flip chip, literally grains of sand.
