So I built this pedal a few months ago. It powers on, LED lights up, bypass works but no sound when it's on. If I crank the level knob all the way up I get a faint signal.
It's been on the shelf for a few months but I've just gotten around to opening it up to check for problems. I noticed one of the footswitch leads needed some more solder so reflowed that but the bigger thing I noticed today was that I accidentally soldered the IC socket 180 degrees the wrong way and had the IC inserted as such. I'm assuming this is probably causing the issue.
What I would like the know is can I simply flip the IC without having to desolder then resolder the socket? Obivously I'll have to remember that the socket is flipped if I ever swap out the IC in the future.
