The commonsound layout is considered the updated version of the Tremulus Lune. Use these parts substitutions/adds instead (if you want; if it's too difficult to track these, you can build the Tonepad original PCB layout and it will work fine). 1. The 2 resistors from the input to pins 1 and 2 of the TL072. Commonsound = 220K each, Tonepad = 47K each. 2. Electrolytic cap from pin 4 of 4558. Commonsound = 10uF, Tonepad = 100uF. 3. Resistor from pin 7 of 4558 to Speed pot. Commonsound = 2K, Tonepad = 100R. 4. Commonsound added a gain pot instead of using a 25K trim. The gain pot for commonsound is either 100K or 10K, depending on what LDR/LED combo you used. There is an added 330pF capacitor across Gain lugs 1 and 2. Gain 3 has no connection. For tonepad, the gain pot is only a 25K trimpot, and all 3 lugs are connected. To replace the gain trimpot with a pot, you can see that a trimpot has two lugs side by side and one lug higher than them both and centered between them. Replace the higher Build lug board connection with the middle lug of your gain pot, and then connect the side Report: lugs of the new pot to the other onboard connections. test. If it's the wrong pot direction, reverse the side lug wires. 5. Commonsound Speed and Fine pots are 100K and 10K. Tonepad Speed and Fine pots are 10K and 1K. Here's the two layouts, with changed parts colored yellow. The bunch of paint on the commonsound layout is mostly just for my benefit and reference.. commonsound layout. Tonepad layout. Note: 2K resistor is not marked yellow too well on commonsound layout. It's just to the left of speed 2. Here's a pot wiring comparison of the two boards. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y240/hockyfreak5/potwiringcomparison.jpg
