I am in the process of putting together a mouser cart and was wondering if there is an alternative option for the switches?
The octopart cart references only Digi-Key, which unfortunately is not an option for me, especially not for only ordering three switches (I have other parts to order from mouser and Digi-Key shipping to germany has been quite a hassle both times I tried it).
Mouser seems to have some with a slightly differently formatted code for them.
Copy the BOM into your own list and the tool will give you the alternative parts.
I found the pots with RS that’ll come tomorrow. Mouser also has free shipping and customs over a certain amount. So it maybe more economical to buy an extra component or two as spares.
fwiw the encoders as-is feel pretty good to me and pretty close to vanilla norns iirc. I assume panel mounting would be ideal but it’s not a problem for me. if yr designing a case just make sure to get the encoder holes right
oh and if anyone is still wondering - just turn the volume most of the way up & headphones work great
