    Default How to dissemble MIDIfighter?

    So I am soon to be the proud owner of not one but two new midifighters... I'm hoping to take one of them apart and put it in a new case, possibly with some knobs and stuff a la the Dominican Midi Crisis post from months ago... Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to take one apart without breaking anything? Also is it easy enough to use wires to connect the buttons to the PCB rather than just plugging them into it as it is currently, in case I want to change the position of the buttons?

    unscrew all 8 screws and gently lift the arcade array as a whole up. it's quite easy..

    there should be no problem connecting the buttons with wires to the existing slots on the pcb..

    ahhh easy I like the sound of that Looking forward to this project... I'm still not sure I have the skills to add knobs to the MF but even if I don't I found a cool ass box to house it in

    Yeah its super easy, gently is probably best interpreted as firm but gradual pressure.

    Nice, big thanks for pointing me to the pics Karlos. I'll make sure to keep an apple handy Looking forward to this one! I'm sure I'll be posting for help adding knobs and such (what I really want is to add a crossfader but based on the postings on that discussion it's probably not something as easily done).

    Yeah i posted the pics for fun really but i have to say the Midi Fighter is surprisingly addictive. I want another now and id love to go further and add a x-fader.

    Post up if you do it bro and i might do it as well.
