    It looks like Aurora V2 has the mini board - maybe you can “borrow” the schematic?
    It won't reduce the number of wires (other than a couple of the jumper wires on the switch) but it will allow me to tidy things up by getting rid of the star grounding on the input jack. It's not a necessity, I just like all my wiring (both guitars and pedals) to be as tidy as possible because it makes it easier to find faults if there are any.

I then have to remember which colour is on and which is off. Plus the brightness was really different between the two colours.
    I'll try it when it gets here and report back haha.

    I think that star grounding is the wires I was talking about. I'm looking forward to seeing the change, and learning from you!

    Is your pedal noisy at all, in any of the treble switch positions or anything?

    I don't use star grounds in any pedals. So long as you avoid a loop you should be OK. In recent stripboard builds I have followed this scheme from Tag Board Effects. The ground follows one neat line, no loop. You can sort of see it here:

    Compared to the diagram, I don't wire the LED directly to the footswitch. I make a tiny board from stripboard and solder the CLR, LED, and wires to that. It's a bit hard to see in the photo since it's over the main board. I like this approach since it lets me position the LED anywhere in the enclosure.

    So I'm still waiting on my enclosures. They were shipped a month ago from Tayda in Thailand and the tracking doesn't even show it landing in Australia yet. Contemplating ordering a couple of enclosures from PedalParts because they now have stock again.

    On a more positive note the footswitch pcb has arrived so I will look to get that setup ready to go and test it out.

    Great. I need some more enclosures too. For my phaser I used one of the low-grade enclosures from Pedal Parts because that was all they had. In hindsight that was not the best choice for a polished metal finish.
