Did you try it?

Will try when I'm back. I've had success before with alu foil but I didn't have proper keycaps at the time.

maybe something to try is a plastic sheet in the shape of the bottom board installed -below- the top board with H- shaped cutouts where the switches are, which are bent upwards like wings to lightblock the sides of the switches between body and cap. this sheet could double as isolation sheet between top and bottom pcbs.

This is some 909 keycap as example, that is good! :love:
It mixes both colors better too.

It's even better in the other way, more brightness.

these caps look good. I'm thinking about it...

I was going to try painting the inside walls of the caps if the colour bleeding annoys me too much.

Any news on the CV/gate expander?

Andy is back from the states and has access to proper soldering and test equipment again :) Speaking for myself, we have finalized the move to the new house, thus i have more time.
The v4+ modular extension is super high on our list, we are working on it: validation phase next and we need to design the eurorack frontpanels :).

Many greets,
Peter

The definitive or just a test?
If just a test, I can help...

Best regards

@Antichambre, probably the definitive version - it is nothing dramatic and should be quite easy to handle, as it will be quite modular (lots of small panels).

Many greets!
Peter

In white 2800mcd 2600mcd was enough for me, but it's a question of taste.
