I have one magnet per note, and the way its wired now each magnet = connects to one contact, then the stop switch sinks the common bus in the chest to the negative pole on the power = supply. This works fine with one stop and one coupler but adding another stop to a different division would render it = useless (and messy).   What I think I'll probably do is just put one stop per contact then have = each coupler (3) occupy a contact. Thats a lot of soldering and wiring work though. This way I won't have to hunt down = any relays, by the way what does a relay really do? Is it just a simple remote switch multiplied by the number of = notes to increase the current handling capacity of the contacts, like a regular relay?   -Drew
