I just bought a pyramid and after testing everything, i found an issue with the knob number 4.
I seems to move values in a chaotic way (instead of just move up or move down).
Is there a way to fix this/ replace it ?
Thank you in advance (sorry for my english i’m french).
I had a knob problem (main encoder) and here’s how I fixed it:
- Remove the knob
- Fold up a small piece of paper
- Place it into the cap
- Put the cap back on
That solved this problem for me.
J’ai eu un problème de bouton (encodeur principal) et voici comment je l’ai corrigé:
- Retirez le bouton
- Repliez un petit morceau de papier
- Placez-le dans le capuchon
- Remettez le capuchon
Cela a résolu ce problème pour moi.
My problem is not with the cap, cause even without the cap, the encoder is dysfunctional anyway.
Thank you, but it’s a second hand
Ok thanks, Has anyone tried this replacement ?
Dang! I wish it were as simple for you as it turned out to be for me.
I haven’t replaced a potentiometer, but I have opened my Pyramid and made a modification (the very early models needed to have a couple of resistors removed for better 1v/Oct performance) and while I was super nervous about it (SMD components, and my precious sequencer!) @squarpadmin via email were very supportive, and supplied great instructions and it was a snap!
I just bet if you write to them they’ll give you similar instructions for replacing the pot, and may even have some other ideas. Second hand or no, it’s a Squarp Instrument and they’ve got your back for sure.
I already asked my question to them, and they answer me today. For now I’m waiting the next answer. Thanks everybody for your reply !
