    Default Aluminum rotary encoder knobs for Maschine?

    I'm looking for a set of rotary encoder knobs for maschine, I found the set by jesse dean designs and was wondering if anyone else made aluminum encoder knobs that fit that do not have a center detent mark?
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/NI-Maschine-...#ht_500wt_1070 these are all I can find but a little pricey and maybe there's something better looking out there I'm not aware of

    Oh btw - thats all their knobs - you can search for just metal ones once your there

    edit: actually after looking there aren't that many without lines for encoders

    Yeah some of my family do a secret santa thing online with a $100 limit and I had no idea what I wanted and asked for some stuff to pimp out my maschine since it is my new favorite tool.

    getting elevated walnut trim:

    Ah very nice! I like the whole idea, but for some reason the white overlay isn't sitting well with me. But can't wait to see your finished Maschine .

    That's because it doesn't actually fit and ruins the feel of the buttons.

    I just got the aluminum knobs - great except that theyre not centered, so kind of wobble. I might switch back to the plastic knobs. Has anyone experienced this? or am I installing them wrong??
