This is where we are ATM:
We're back to top mounting , rather than screw the adapter down from under the fader plate , so that it is easier to adapt existing fader plates (just drill and tap a couple of new holes)
Does this means it is not possible to use the original fader mounting to mount the quadrant?
My personal preference is the old Elma style - very reminiscent of the EMI consoles. Black would be my colour of choice but red as an alternative would be nice.I'm not sure about the knob ; this is my homage to the Elma style knob which while suitable for finger tip operation (like a typical linear fader) is less well suited to finger and thump movements like traditional quadrant fader types.
There are plenty of folk here with 3D printers so I guess there is a good chance of some volunteers to make different styles of knob.Should I design a third style with rounded top and pointer ? (the knob is likely to be 3d printed or moulded in resin - any colour preferences?)
The fader scale is yet to be determined , should it be traditional (+10 to -40 dB) or ye olde linear (percent)?
Keep up the good work.
