Hi, I am a professional builder and a customer asked me to build a MAL-2. I bought two kits from SynthCube -- one for him and one for me. Both builds went fine -- great instructions, no issues. However, only one of the assembled kits worked. The other one did nothing (no flashing lights on power up). After troubleshooting, I found that the Atmel microcontroller is the cause. When I swap the microcontrollers, the problem follows the microcontroller. The thing is, the microcontroller hasn't been abused. I've been following anti-static guidelines and certainly never reversed the polarity. Could this microcontroller have been neglected to be programmed? How do I correct these issues? Can I get a replacement microcontroller from SP?
