I have several of these chips, and eventually I will get around to using
So much on a single chip and very little support circuitry required. And
after all, VC Pan! I actually planned on using them as the ultimate
end to a VC stereo mixer. My idea was that they could be used standalone
as possibly a 2u MOTM module, but have the outputs normaled to a MOTM 2u
3 input stereo mixer. Or 2 1u mono mixers.

No prob, I've been busy with MOTM modules. But I'll finish up my last
today, so maybe I should start playing with this to fill the time until
the next shipment.

I'm kind of curious about what solutions were suggested for custom MOTM
panels. One idea I had was to create screen printed "Experimenters
These would just have a rectangle of white where the label would
go, similar to what you have on patch bays. Then I could write labels
This would give a clear indication of what was an official MOTM module
and what was some bizarre home brew module.
