    Hello there,
    I own a pair of glow in the dark faders and need another one after controler gear extension.
    I can see now glow in the dark faders are only available in mk2 version.
    My question is : do they look exactly like the previous ones that i own ?
    Thx

    honestly couldnt tell the difference (in feel or look). The fitment of the MK2 is better on PIO gear.

    That is indeed the only difference. The regular faders will get replaced by the MK2 once they run out since the MK2 share the same usual fit on other units + the improved Pioneer support.

    Thx for your answers !

    Do you know if all the colours that were available are going to be released on the new mk2 faders ? (Like grey or orange)

    Default Chroma Cap Fit

    Not sure if this is the right place for this but I recently purchased a number of caps for my ddj-rr controller. I really like the colors and feel of the caps themselves however I noticed that depending on the stem of the pot and how far down you push the cap there is a point were the cap seems to touch the surface of the controller.

    This is an issue because the rubber and/or pressure on the stem causes friction and makes turning the knob difficult just enough to be annoying. Added pressure added a delay or sense for a need to over power the turn. I have tried not to press the cap all the way down on to the stem (which works perfectly for a short time) but with repeated pressure, the cap eventually presses down on the pot/face plate.

    I wanted to make a design recommendation that might help others who experience this "feature". I would like to recommend that you add a very slight plastic extension to the shaft of the knob so that if fully pressed on to the stem of the pot, the plastic will prevent the rubber from coming in contact with the face of the device - acting as a buffer to the knob.

    I love the chroma caps so much, I don't want to revert to the original knobs. I have considered even buying small washers to place around the high-use knobs where this causing the biggest issue.

    I took the diagram and added where I think this would be best placed. I hope this helps.

    Adding a plastic piece to the bottome will lead to paint chipping and rubbing off on older mixers. What I did, on my denon dnx1100, was cut a pot shaped piece out of a plastic sheet and slide it into the knob so the knob wouldnt touch bottom.

    Sounds pretty interesting.... Can you take a picture to show? I'm interested to know what kind of "plastic sheet" you used as well as how it fits around the pot.

    Here is an img showing why I think the faceplate wouldn't be damaged. If it did wear down on the metal, it would only be under what was covered by the cap itself and wouldn't be seen. I think just the plastic covering , if extended just slightly should solve the issue
