Its just plug and play, use needle nose pliers to remove the opamp already in there. It'll make life easier on ya. Besides that make sure to insert it the right way~ I don't know how it works when putting in 2x SOIC on a browndog if the same rules apply. I am sure the adapter itself has the marking.
I'm curious... what are the chances of the parts like caps, resistors or even the APLS pot being fake? I'm not saying that the Matrix M-Stage uses fake parts or everything that's made in China is fake. I'm just wondering how can one tell if the parts are the real deal.
