Korg NanoKontrol mod

0 kommentarer
I bought a Korg NanoKontrol cheap to control softsynths and Cubase, it's a
great little thing but the graphic design is not to my liking.
So I thought I could mod it a little : )

Before : /

Started by taking it all apart

Then I removed all the paint with sandpaper and spray painted it white

I don't need the transport buttons, I use a Contour Shuttle for that.
I used a dremel to cut out a rectangle from a sheet of aluminium, brushed it up with sandpaper
and spray painted it white and black.
I then glued it over the cut outs for the transport buttons.
I haven't decided yet if I should get new slider caps and pot knobs.

I'm quite happy with the result! : )

Much better! : )

Shruti-1 white mod

0 kommentarer
Got an interesting synth for my birthday, the Shruti-1 from Mutable Instruments.
(I have really good friends : )
My only mod (so far) is a white paint job of the acrylic glass.
I have it permanently hooked up to my studio setup and control it via NanoKontrol
Here are some pics of how I put it together:

Le start.

Resistor hell.


Two boards.

And merged.
The paint job.

And done. It sounds fantastic!
