Quarantine Build number 4. I had some trouble getting this one to work and this was the first PPCB that I've almost given up on but after some trouble shooting and help from the forum, I got it all boxed up. I wasn't getting sound when the pedal was engaged and that was because the audio jacks were grounding out when touching the metal enclosure. It turns out electrical tape wasn't enough of a barrier between an uncovered pot and the pcb and that was causing the grounding issue. @Chuck D. Bones suggested adding some cardboard and that did the trick! Always grateful for help from the forum!
