Something like that would probably go to a board shop. When you want the sharpie method is for something as simple as the power supply and bias boards in the tube amp - and you get them that afternoon. If I do a complicated one-off its perf board to the rescue. Used to use the sharpie method for everything - back when the cheapest 14x14 you could get made would be $300 a board - in quantity. The 2-sides one in the sand amp was several months in layout before I was satisfied enough to dunk it. At todays prices it would be stupid to make by hand, but not back then.I am sorry, but no way. I always start with a 2-sided PCBs even for prototypes, can't imagine drawing this by hand. I know what I speak about, 40 years ago I made my proto boards by hand. Depends what we want to do and what we expect to get. Too many variables .

I’ll probably go with KiCad myself - I’m still running some old package from 20 years ago which still works. But will die with the computer when it does. The XP is still running great - but the hardware is developing minor problems. Only a matter of time before they become major ones. I will be looking for a good used Win7 desktop to replace it. With an Intel processor (required to run ANY DJ console - they all act stupid on AMDs).
