    Default **Novation Twitch with the new DJTT Knobs & Faders**

    Hey guys, so for all the Novation Twitch owners out there who are thinking about modding their Twitch's with the new DJTT knobs and faders, how do you think they will fit?

    I was looking into getting some to mod out my Twitch, but I'm worried about how well the knobs will fit?

    On the DJTT store page it says "Knobs sit high on controller"

    So does that mean it wouldn't be a good fit, or maybe it wouldn't look or feel too good? I don't want to spend $$$ and then it doesn't look or feel good.

    So what do you think? Yes or No?

    Give me a few days and ill let u know.. Twitch's knobs are kinda crappy so i imagine anything will be better.. I think that basically they will just not be exactly flush with the surface but should still work and feel great.

    If u can wait, my order should be here this week and i will be testing them on pretty much all my gear (twitch included).

    djtt got those shipped pretty dam quick.. heres pics of twitch below (all the black knobs are novation stock + the colored are djtt)..

    - The faders fit well and I will be keeping these on as they feel like a nice upgrade.
    - The slim knobs fit fine but you'll see that their is an obvious height difference between novations 2 styles of knobs:
    1. novations push knobs - djtt slim knob fits well + sits pretty flush to the unit. There is a TINY amount of space in between.
    2. novations eq style knobs (basically any novation stock knob that has a notch in it) - djtt knobs fit on the stub perfectly and it would be completely useable but its not flush with the unit as you'll see in the pics. This is what they meant by 'sits high'.

    They feel pretty nice and it will be nice to get rid of some of the novation twitch knobs as they are some of the worst knobs ive ever used.

    I think I'll probably keep novations eq-style stock knobs and replace the rest with djtt. DJTT faders seem like the best upgrade for twitch imo.

    Thanks for posting back with pics so quick!

    So I see what you mean about the EQ knobs, def not a good fit.

    I think the faders look good, so I'll probably be getting some for the Twitch, but thats it I think.

    I do agree with you, the knobs on the Twitch are not the best compared to other controllers, but they will have to do hey.

    In the meantime I'll be placing my order for some knobs for my X1.

    Thanks again!

    no prob.. if theres any controller that needed an emergency knob replacement, its this one Shame the knobs dont fit flush for all of the knobs because the twitch would be freakin awesome with these knobs.

    Anybody out there know of a workaround for these "sit high" knobs?

    I may wind up trying out the eq knob replacement too and give it a mess around to see if theres much improvement.. i have a strong dislike for the twitch knobs as you can probably tell lol so maybe the "sit high" thing is better than the current knobs..

    But ya.. def go for the faders.. and quite franctly, you should pick up at least 2 knobs to test em out since shipping is pretty much the same price whether you buy 2 or 20 knobs so worth having a test set laying around imo for $4.

    Did you order any of the fatter knobs? I was thinking one on the filter would be nice.

    Ya.. I replaced one pf the fat knobs on my x1..

    I didnt try any of the fat knobs on the twitch tho.. I use itch with the twitch so no filter knob.. I assume u use traktor? Anyways lemme know which knob and ill try it on.. It probably fits the same way but twitchs knobs are generally tight spaced so it may just be a room issue..

    Do the fader knobs make the faders tighter or more smooth? In my opinion the original faders on the twitch are a bit too loose and flimsy.
