Hi everyone,
I'm building the DOD 230 from this vero:

I'm a little bit confused how to hook up the VTL5C10 or the LED/LDR combination.
The VTL5C10 has 4 legs and I can't really see where they might go on the vero?
Is that what the green lines are about?
If I were to make my own LED/LDR combination, how would that be hooked up?
Thanks for helping out  :D

The optocoupler should be d1 in the vero but makes no sense to me yet... l'll ask the maker of that vero.

The LED of the Optocoupler is depicted as ... LED! The variable resistor part (LDR) is nicely drawn as green wires ;)

The Optocoupler has text on it which side is the LED and which pin is the +. In this case, the Optocoupler should face the vero with the LED-part down, and the + on the second row.

... on a side note: I don't like this noise gate at all. :| Online stripboard layouts
