Howdy everyone, I've been lurking in the shadows for a while, but I return with something nifty.
I've familiarized myself with Eagle CAD for work, and have spent a while working on an internal ArduinoBoy kit. It's designed to fit in DMGs and SGBs. On-board flashing to the standalone ATmega328p. 1/8" Stereo Jacks for MIDI In and Out/Thru, along with a ProSound headphone jack. Final design will include an optional USB for MIDI.

Update 2/23/17 -
Sample PCBs of the new revision have arrived. I worked on this new rev for months and made quite a few changes. I completely started from scratch on the PCB layout for each of the 3 PCBs, rerouted everything, changed parts, and added a couple of new fancy thangs. I modified the ArduinoBoy code to replace the 5 mode LEDs with a single RGB NeoPixel that only requires one data line (along with +5V & GND of course), cutting down the number of wire connections needed between pcbs.
I also added Variable Clock, because, why the fuck not?
Successfully burned the Arduino bootloader to the ATmega328 and uploaded the sketch in-circuit through the programming pins (easy to make programming adapter, allowing people to fuck with the code if they want! You do You!) into a DMG today and will be testing in the coming days.
