This is my 1st breadboard attempt ever and it sounds pretty good to me. I used a TL071 for the IC, works fine and I really feel like I learned a little bit about
how this stuff is done (probably just enough to be completely wrong at most of it).
I would like to try to commit this to a PCB and box it up(maybe use the diode compression project instead of an IC). I just attempted my 1st PCB layout using the DIY Layout Creator but I'm not at all confident it's right. I'm sure I wasted some board space but that's about all I'm sure of.
What's the easiest way to do a layout---starting with the ground trace and working in or in this case starting with the IC and working out? Or is it better to start with the power section? I don't have a clue. Maybe all these question belong in a different thread but this is the beginners section so I thought I would try here.
