Triple Sloth - NLC Build notes

These are my revised build notes for the Nonlinear circuits triple sloth.

It's a module in Eurorack format that contains 3 chaos circuits.
This most recent variation of the sloth is a evolution of the original 4HP sloth module I built in 2015.
It was called the super sloth back then. You could build 3 different versions of the module basically by changing the capacitors.

Andrew later came up with a 12HP version This had 3 types of sloth chaos.
It was actually 3 of the supersloths mounted behind one 12HP panel.
Notice the differing sizes of Electro caps.

The new 2017 sloth uses just 2 PCBs.

nlc Words of wisdom.

 All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

 Totally agree. Give me Gluten !!!
Live fast, Die GG ????
 Back to the build.
 ICs first
DONT do this:
Wrong side !!!!.... the board was accidently reversed

Below is the correct way:
.....the side the jacks & pots are placed on IS the side with no printing on it.

The Diodes d1 & D2 need to be reversed.

Change R7  to 330K
