Did the vero board build and I have a ton of crackling. So much that I can't hear the chorus effect. VCC voltage is 4.97 on PT2399 and 5.4 on NE5532. I had the rate LED wired and it worked intermittently, but disconnected it. I'll hook it back up when the pedal is working. I'm not a circuit guy, just a builder, so if anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.
All solder joints are good, no bridging to adjacent traces, all trace cuts are clean and non-conductive, no components touching ground that shouldn't be grounded. I have swapped both chips and it's the same problem with all of them.
BTW, I got the last 2 boards from GuitarPCB and they'll be here soon. I will probably do a fresh build on them.
