I agree with gizmodyne and sIKE. And I think that biscuits on long grain joints (edge to edge) are a complete waste of time. They’re too loose fitting to be of any real value in alignment and they don’t add any strength along the joint as the glue joint will be stronger than the wood. They “might” aid in adding shear strength. Use cauls for alignment.
