So, here's the beginning of the story about my MB-6582 MidiBox. As pictures say more than 1000 words, I've added as much pictures as possible 🙂

On the 14th of April, the board still was quite empty, just a few resistors inserted. The soldering had begun. 😀
At the bottom you can see how I bent all the leads, just before cutting and soldering them.
Just adding some more resistors...
Voltage regulators in place. As you can see, the IC-sockets, headers, DIN-sockets and the power-switch also have been placed already.

Received my SID-chips! Hooray! Those chips will eventually actually synthesize the sound 🙂
Caps in all shapes and sizes 🙂
And there they are soldered 🙂
Great, enough backlogging for today. Expect more soon 🙂
