    When Derek announced his new 64 input board , myself and Phillp Berry concocted an evil plan to build the mother of all button boxes ...

    30 illuminated push button switches & 10 rotary encoders !

    With Derek donating us a board each ( BIG thanks to you Derek ), we set about what and how we were going to build it . Once completely built i will post a list that will allow other DIYers to perhaps build their own monster box !!

    So here we go .......

    WOW! I was doing some research on button boxes and came across this thread. That box is incredible looking! I'm surprised we didn't get more replies on this. I'm looking at a big button box like this myself , instead of having two smaller ones. Awesome job on this one , and looks badass!
