Middle encoder: remove detent?

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Now the build of my Seq-4 is coming to an end I have one question which I can't find here in the forum. Do or Don't I remove the detent from the middle encoder (the one with the big datawheel). What did you do and what are the experiences.

I am curious about your thoughts.

Cheers,

Kees

I would keep the detents, but have to admit I can't think of any time I've ever used an encoder without them.

Suggest to keep the detents, you have a good amount of off-axis torque on the large wheel. I think smooth encoders work well on more "analogue" controls, like the MB-6582. For incremental changes (low resolution, high precision needed for e.g. sequence lengths) stepped is much better.
