Connecting your module for the first time can be tricky. There are chances to destroy it.
Ok, what to do then? Well, you need to check the following points before pluging in anything, and most important : Never trust the red stripe.

An updated, corrected and simplified version of my Eurorack Stripboard is available!
I always needed to have, in my drawers, a quick and easy way to assemble and prototype some small synth modules.
I think this the most convenient way to build a simple module. You just use it as a standard stripboard PCB but with neat additions.

After my first Compact Power Bus, I decided to go bigger and I designed a 14 connector Eurorack Power Bus.

Linear regulation. +12V / -12V /+5V. Up to 1A.
I just finished my first “2 x LFO” prototype.
While I’m still designing my DS8 drum clone, I’m preparing some new modules. In fact, they are designed as build bricks for the drum module.
I made a simple square and triangle LFO, a simple AR Envelope Generator and a 3 way mono mixer.
In the meanwhile, I tried for the very first time the Front Panel Express service (Schaeffer AG actually here in Europe), and I just received my first panels yesterday.
I have to say 2 things: first, their service is not cheap at all. But, wow! I’m really happy with the result! What a nice and professional result! Check it out:
It’s absolutely brilliant! If it wasn’t the price, I would definitely recommend their service!
They are 2mm thick black anodised aluminium panels. Texts and drawings are raw cuts with no white infills. Still, the result is very good: it’s perfectly readable.
Edges can be a bit rough though. Anodised aluminium doesn’t catch finger prints. (PMA glass does it a lot!) At 2mm thick, the panels are really stiff. Surface is pretty hard to scratch.
All in all, I’m very pleased.
If everything goes nicely, I will build several of these and sell ’em as separate simple modules. Keep in touch!
Next to come are an impact gen (actually a clone of a 606 bass drum), and probably the noise generator.
