Keyboard accessories

Modulation Wheel kit: contains a special rotary potentiometer (10k linear) with nut and washer, the modulation wheel made of black plastic, a mouting angle, rubber buffer (for a soft touch of the wheel against the angle) and a fetch-back spring that can be used (e.g. for pitch band) or not (e.g. for modulation or volume control). Available as kit only and has to be assembled by the user.

dimensions:
overall: ~ 67 x 33 x 63 mm (mounting angle, wheel and potentiometer)
only the mounting angle: ~ 53 x 20 x 40 mm (without wheel and potentiometer)
diameter of the wheel: ~ 67 mm
width of the wheel: ~ 10 mm
distance of the mounting holes of the mounting angle: ~ 32 mm

Technical remarks: Pay attention that not the full rotating angle of the potentiometer is covered but only about 40%. If the end terminals of the potentiometer are e.g. connected to GND and +5V only a voltange range 0...+1.6V is covered !  Especially for DIY/OEM applications one has to pay attention to the limited rotating angle. The electronics of our keyboards (LMK2+, LMK4+) and the DIY/OEM electronics MKE and Wheel Electronic take into consideration this special quality.

The modulation wheel can be combined with these electronics: Wheel Electronic, LMK2+, LMK4+, MKE

Here you find the construction notes for the modulation wheel kit: Modulation_Wheel_kit.pdf

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.


Modulation Wheel Set: contains a special rotary potentiometer (10k linear) with nut and washer, the modulation wheel made of black plastic, a mouting angle, rubber buffer (for a soft touch of the wheel against the angle) and a fetch-back spring that can be used (e.g. for pitch band) or not (e.g. for modulation or volume control). Available as kit only and has to be assembled by the user.

dimensions:
overall: ~ 89 x 76 x 64 mm (including wheels)
only the black box: ~  89 x 76 x 45 mm (without wheels)
diameter of the wheels: ~ 67 mm
width of the wheel: ~ 15 mm
grid of the mounting holes:  ~  72 x 61 mm

Technical remarks: Pay attention that not the full rotating angle of the potentiometer is covered but only about 40%. If the end terminals of the potentiometer are e.g. connected to GND and +5V only a voltange range 0...+1.6V is covered ! In addition the two potentiometers work in the opposite direction as one is mounted from the left and the other from right side to the wheel ! Especially for DIY/OEM applications one has to pay attention to these special features. So far the modulation wheel set is not used in any of our products. In particular it cannot be used in combination with the electronics of LMK2+, LMK4+ and the DIY/OEM electronics MKE. But the modulation wheel set can be combined with Wheel Electronic.

Joy Stick I: same as used in the A-174 module (2 x 20k linear, from February 2012 new value: 2 x 10k linear). The axis is equipped with a M3 thread that can be used to screw a suitable lever with M3 thread to the axis.

dimensions:
overall: ~ 41 x 41 x 36 mm (including lever and potentiometers)
only the black box: ~ 30 x 30 x 25 mm (without lever and potentiometers)
grid of the mounting holes:  ~  24 x 24 mm

manufacturer: ALPS

The joy stick potentiometers cover the complete rotation angle. If the end terminals of the potentiometers are e.g. connected to GND and +5V the full voltange range 0...+5V is covered !

The joy stick is spring-loaded, i.e. the lever returns back to the neutral position as soon as it is released. If the spring is removed for one or both directions (e.g. by means of a side cutter) the joy stick is no longer spring-loaded for this direction(s). But as the spring has to be destroyed during the removal this cannot be re-established !

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.

Joy stick I can be combined e.g. with Wheel Electronic or Pocket Electronic.

The picture shows the joy stick with the additionally available aluminium lever. The aluminium lever is not included but has to be ordered separately (additional price).

Joy-Stick II: This is another type of joy-stick with two 10k linear potentiometers. The joy-stick is equipped with a 4 pin cable and a 4 pin female connector (1/10" pitch). The end-terminals of the two potentiometers are connected (consequently only a 4 pin cable is required). If the wires are nipped off the connection between the potentiometers can be interrupted.

dimensions:
overall: ~ 72 x 60 x 66 mm (including lever and potentiometers)
diameter of the inner ball: ~ 50 mm
length of the lever (measured from the ball surface):  ~ 17 mm
cross section of the lever:  ~ 6 x 6 mm
grid of the mounting holes:  ~  42 x 48 mm

manufacturer: Fatar

Technical remarks: Pay attention that not the full rotating angle of the potentiometers is covered but only about 40%. If the end terminals of the potentiometer are e.g. connected to GND and +5V only a voltange range of about +1.5 ... 3.5 V is covered (a bit different for different specimens) ! So far we have no Midi electronics available that can be used in combination with joy stick II. The joy stick is spring-loaded, i.e. the lever returns back to the neutral position as soon as it is released. One of the spring can be removed very easily by nipping the spring with a side cutting pliers. The second spring is hidden inside the joy stick.

Other accessories

Position Sensor: Same as used in R2M resp. A-198. A linear position sensor from the industrial sector. Measures: about 575 x 22 x 0.5 mm. Usable length about 50 cm. Works like a normal fader potentiometer but the wiper is lifted off as long as the sensor is not touched. As soon as the sensor is touched the wiper is connected to the resistance track and can now be treated like a normal linear potentiometer. The sensor has a self-adhesive base and a 3 pin connector (same functions as a potentiometer). The resistance of the sensor is about 12,5 kOhm (+/- 20%). The position sensor cannot be shortened and is available only in this length. Changing the production for another length would cause high costs as new tools would be necessary. For measures beyond 50 cm even new machines would we required that are able to process larger workpieces.

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.


Pressure Sensor (new version): Same as used in the new versions of R2M resp. A-198. A pressure position sensor from the industrial sector. Measures: about 610 x 15 x 0,35 mm. Usable length about 60 cm.  It has a self-adhesive base and a 2 pin connector. The sensor reduces it's resistance while the pressure increases: from more than 1MOhm without pressure to about 1-2 kOhm at moderate pressure and down to a few hundret Ohm at high pressure, but the high pressure range is not meaningful for musical applications. The pressure sensor can be cutted off to any length.

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.


Pressure Sensor (old version): Same as used in the old versions of R2M resp. A-198. A conductive rubber (about 245 x 13 x 1 mm) that reduces it's resistance while the pressure increases. The rubber can be assembled between two conducting surfaces (e.g. pc boards) to measure the variable resistance. For the complete length of the R2M resp. A-198 manual 2-3 of these sensors are required.

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.


Spring reverb system: The system is made of three separate springs with transmitter and receiver to obtain a very "dense" reverb sound. The system has an additional spring suspension to avoid undesired sounds caused by (small) bounces against the case. Connections via standard cinch/RCA female connectors. The system is used in the spring reverb module A-199.

dimensions: about 180 x 51 x 33 mm
spring length: about 80 mm
input resistance: typ. 190 Ohm
output resistance: typ. 2500 Ohm

The valid price can be found in the price list in the accessories section.


In addition all rotary or fader potentiometers (used in A-100, Drehbank, Pocket-Control, Pocket-Fader, Regelwerk, MAQ16/3 ...), rotary encoders, rotary and fader knobs, momentary buttons, toggle switches, 3.5mm jack sockets and so on are available as spare parts. But we are not an electronic shop and have available only the parts used in our products.
