I want to build it as a euro rack module, but want to have it also as standalone unit. So the pcb has the usual eurorack power connector and a socket for a wall wart. I have jumpers to select between 5V from the euro rack connector, or 5V from a regulator which is fed either by the 12V from the eurorack connector or by 9V-12V from a wall wart.

Why 7805? Can’t you use the LM1117 regulator on the Arduino Nano?
