You need a "Molex 0.156 KK plug housing, 12 conductor" - part number 538-09-50-3121 at Mouser.com. This doesn't come with contacts; you'll need to order those separately: "Molex plug contacts, phosphor bronze, 22-26 AWG" (part number 538-08-50-0134 at Mouser.com). The plastic insert to fill in hole #2 (ensuring the connector can't be plugged in incorrectly) is "Molex plug polarizing key for 0.156 housings" (part number 538-15-04-0219 at Mouser.com).

I have pre-assembled audio-to-Pianocorder cables available for sale if you're interested - these are built using a custom printed circuit board and considerably better circuit design than what Loyd is using.

If you do build your own, please do NOT use pots with metal shafts or metal sliders - the kind shown on Loyd's site are very dangerous! All 5 VDC section MUST be carefully insulated from the operator due to the Pianocorder's hot chassis design or else there will be a serious risk of electric shock.
