Alternative Knobs for Novation SL MK2

I really like this midi controller, but I don't like the second row of knobs (not the endless knobs, the knobs below). They are touch sensitive, so I'm not sure I can change them, but I really want to buy something else. Is it possible to buy a set of knobs to replace these knobs? Where? Thank you.

  • Search for aluminum potentiometer knobs.
    Make sure you get the ones with the right shaft type and diameter.
    Also make sure they're not aluminum outside and plastic inside, otherwise they're likely not going to be touch sensitive..

    Thank you! Cannot find the dimmension of the knobs of the Novation. Spent a lot of time on Google.

    Anyone knows? I want to buy the right kobs.

    Are those encoders or potentiometers? I assume pots due to the line, but want to make sure.

    Just pull one of them off and you'll see the shaft 😉

  • These are for the MK1. Might be the same thing of MK2.

  • Amazon has a fair amount of choices for knobs. Generally there are two shaft types "knurled" 6mm and D-Style. Pay close attention to the dimensions. Get a metric ruler to get a feeling for the actual dimensions.

    By coincidence I was shopping for knobs myself today for a DIY controller project. Most of the knobs were 12mm outer diameter, which is bigger than I was hoping for. I did finally find something the size I was looking for, but it took a lot of searching.

  • Mouser and Digikey also have good options if you don’t find what you’re looking for on Amazon.
