    Default 42 knobs?

    Richie Hawtin had these custom made for his new Plastikman live show this year.



    How would you, personally, chose to use these knobs? What could you come up with that would put these to good use?

    Volume knobs, 4 eqs and gains for 4 channels and 4 banks of effects so thats

    6x4 24 and 4x4 16 getting to 40 total, I guess the last two could be for some other shenanigans that I haven't figured up yet, maybe some sort of super knobs for the effects, or possibly a filter for a couple of decks, who knows Hawtin is Mad

    So damn cool. I do love Richie Hawtin's view on technology.

    Could do with some encoders though.

    what do you mean? it consists of only rotary encoders?
    or do you mean endless encoders?
