Data wheel encoder + tact switches - Korg Triton kbd

Unread post by ledan » Mon Feb 02, 2015 5:58 pm

Hi,

I need to replace a few of these and i wonder if you know the best place (in europe) to source them from? I have been looking at Syntaur, etc but the want ~13 usd for the encoder and ~7.5 usd for each tact.switch.

Also, how hard is it to actually get to the pcbs that holds them? i haven't really found any good guides online, but i hear that it's quite hard to do it (?!)

Hejsan

If they are fairly standard components, then the best place to get them will most likely be closer to home. ;-)

Oh yeah, and the Novation KS4 is now hooked up again(even though it has to rest vertically when not used)!

Hi zpink,

lol, yes, normally i would go to Elfa for sure, but my problem is that i'm not at all sure what type of encoder to look for. I know (after trying) that a 360 turn on the knob gives 30 "ticks" (retentions), but that is all i know. I don't know the other characteristics of it (long/short pin, how many connectors?, is it Alps or something else (if that matters)? Since i don't know most of this, i thought i could take the safe route and buy them from some place where they are published as suitable for Triton.

I got confirmation also that the Triton is a bugger to take apart (someone described it as "1000 screws and heaps of boards to tear down") so i would preferably have all items at hand when starting this task :-)

Thanks Miks, that page will surely help a lot when i do muster the courage to dive into the Triton :-)

I did finally order the parts from here: http://www.guitar-parts.com/

Of course, it cost a little bit more than sourcing locally but on the other hand, i know that i get the right kind (well, hopefully).

Now, i need to plan some kind of weekend activity for the wife and kids (without me) so that i get ~15 hours of peace and quiet when doing the repair ;-)

Hey Ledan. Take a lot of photos when your dismantling the Triton. Helps when putting it all back together again and always nice to have a record of what you have done :)

Thanks gents :-)

The "time" will start tomorrow actually (wife will be gone for 6 days.....) so i'll have the big dining table all to myself (LOL). I bought 20 or so coloring pens also (to keep track of what connector goes where) and a new soldering iron (a Weller) so no more excuses i guess ;-)

I'll keep this thread updated with progress + pictures.
