Color Tests
« on: January 04, 2014, 08:10:25 PM »
Been testing different color combinations of Knobs and buttons.

Button color choice was limited to what´s available, black, white, grey and red.

For the knobs, they are all the same basic design. The ones I chose to use, had their pointers removed to suit the encoders´way of use.

Also replaced all top screws with black hex type.

Hope you like them and don´t hesitate to vote.

I had an all white setup, but now swapped for the grey button-bright orange knob layout. It complements the blue lcd nicely when lit and gives it a retro-different look from my Shruthis and other DIY synths.

Have to work around the attachment size limits!

This time some red on black with some brown thrown in.

Very 80´s

Some more combos.

Notice that I tried to also play with button colors to see how it looked.

I like these knobs.

Although they are not soft touch, they have a nice diameter and are set with a screw which make them a bit more flexible to use in different shafts.

The one I settled for 4 now.

Might swap knobs if I get tired of it.
