Alright, that's it!.......I'm putting on my linebacker uniform, crouching in the corner, lurking with intent, gonna throw a flying tackle on my mailman looking for the delivery of my (can't say it!...uhh, gift).
So people in Alaska, Arkansas, and Pa., have received theirs......still waiting.
I've already removed my original knob and am watching the shaft of the potentiometer and picturing how the aestetics of my Electric Blue will change with my gift in place. Needless to say, anticipating the arrival of my manila envelope......
BTW, since I've got ur attention here....I have a couple of questions.....getting ready to take the plunge....should I go w/ Ableton Live or Pro Tools.....I know this is a Ford/Chevy type question, but, just wanted some opinions.....also, since I have a Voyager already, as well as a Yamaha stage piano, will I need a MIDI controller, or is that one of the purposes of my Voyager? Thanx you guys.

Maybe they go in alphabetical order! HaHa!

Time will tell... Just be patient. I have to admit, when mine arrived, it was a totally unexpected surprise. :o

I haven't mounted mine yet... Still debating using it as a key chain or not. I don't think the brass color looks very good on the E-Blue version... Tacky, but I will have to mount her up and see what she looks like...

Someone over at VSE suggested mounting the brass knob on the T3. Although it would match the look, sadly the T3 encoder shaft is a slightly larger size than the Voyager potentiometers. :(
Looks nice though?

My knob arrived in today's mail.

Does not fit the T3.

Nor the Voyager, the Minimoog, the Source, the Memorymoog... nothing!

The knob is a D-shaft insert. I have a Voyager SE, one of the early units to use set screw knobs *before* they switched to D-shaft pots. The T3 encoder is a D-shaft, but different size and the knob doesn't fit.

It may fit one of the MF pedals, but that's kind of a waste... I'll keep looking, I got lots of gear here!
