While I was building, I had a couple of realizations. First, I decided I wanted a MIDI output port to send the data to a computer or another synthesizer in the future. For starters, this will be self-contained, and I will only use the line-out for recording. In the same thought, I needed a solution for the line-out because the 3.5mm sockets were too shallow to reach through the plastic. Fortunately, 6.5mm sockets were deep enough, and I had a few in stock. I designed a side plate that had the new footprints.
New side panel
I never made a bottom for the enclosure. In retrospect, that was a silly oversight. I cut both panels with the hack space's laser cutter. When I got home, I cut up a headphone splitter, connected one side with the line-out socket, and the other side to the internal amplifier board. I previously landed the MIDI data on my stripboard by coincidence, so it was no trouble to tap off that and split it into the DIN connector. Finally, I installed all the panels, and my project was portable.
