Anyone successfully tried the Coda Effects relay switching?

I would put the the uC on a breadboard and hook up LEDs / resistors to the output pins. Then you can easily see what's going on

I would also manually connect the relay to +5v and ground and listen for a click as it changes state. Then swap leads and listen for it to go to the other state.

Hope this helps someone. On the last post of page 1 I posted issues with my build. Turns out my relays were no good! I didn't think to suspect them since I ordered them from Jameco on ebay, which I'm pretty sure is a legitimate electronics store. I ended up on some "verified distributors" page and didn't see Jameco had made it, so I returned those relays.

I ended up ordering relays directly from Mouser and plugged them in as soon as I got them, and it worked great!

Sucks because I was racking my brain trying to figure out if it was an issue with the code or the stripboard layout, but was bad relays.

Anyway, double check everything! hahaha
