    Default Chroma caps

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and have a questions about Chroma Caps. I just got mine in the mail and was wondering how difficult it was to get the stock black caps off. The fader knobs came off rather easy but the Super Knobs are kind of hard to get off. I don't want to damage my S4 or S2 so I thought I would ask if any of you had a good way of getting them off?? thanks for your help.

    Use a butter knife to lever them off. Put a tea towel under the knife and very carefully, lever the knobs off using the knife.

    I did it with cord. Just wrap it around under the knob once and pull it off.

    I used the side of a key underneath the knobs, and put a cloth (you can use anything really) to protect the surface of the controller, and just popped it right off!

    CORD/string is best

    I actually used the butter knife and a paper towel, they all came off rather easy and there are no scratches from the butter knife. Thanks again all!

    Am I detecting a hint of sarcasm?
