Brian, use color coded nuts! Befaco sells them, look for Bananuts. I use something like the Serge code. Blue for cv, black for audio, red for logic. if i want to diferentiate between ins and outs, green for cv out, blue in. Gold for audio out and black in. 

I did this to my FCUK Product, check it:

However, I’ve now learned that I need to make these active, so I have to designate which jacks are inputs versus outputs. I’ve already ordered the face plate for this one, but I’m still thinking of how I might have changed the labeling to reflect active versus passive.
