Problem is, I can't seem to wrap my head around how to best layout the components to minimize size, as well as how to connect everything. Are there any known layouts on how to do this? Or maybe some kind of helpful software that will let me experiment to find the best fit? I have 5 years hobby soldering experience, I did manage to solder my SMT opamps to DIP adapters, so complexity isn't an issue in terms of soldering. But any assistance on the layout would be greatly appreciated!
By the way, I know this question has been asked many times, I've used the search engine. But because everyone's answers are so old, all the linked images have been 404'd, and for some reason even the attached images have been deleted off this message board.
