With respect to hardware integration with pots, buttons, joystick, etc. I realize that one can basically do whatever the pins allow. I am new to the axoloti world, and I have seen some images that look similar to aton's design. Personally, I like what I've seen with the joystick and what I take to be 8 encoders. Is there a specific thread on this approach somewhere that I have missed, with files that can be used for lasercutting? What about a panel that can be connected with standoffs, or even better, an entire demonstrable/instructable?
EDIT: I just found this thread which includes the musicthing approach to solving this problem, which I think accounts for many of the images I've seen. Does anyone have any idea what the depth should be for the standoffs? I'd like to keep it lean, and this doesn't seem to be specified in the BOM
