I noticed that whenever I get to turn any encoder I’m being extra careful about not touching its neighbors, and yet I always do. It’s usually not enough to actually twist anything I didn’t expect by accident but it still provides some negative tactile feedback.
Not sure if I’m just overly fat-fingered (the 5th position on a violin does give me a lot of trouble), but I also compared E1 to my existing controllers and here’s what I noticed.
NI’s Komplete Kontrol has the exact same distance between the encoders but KK’s are couple mm slimmer.
Korg nanoKontrol2’s encoders are both slimmer and a 3 mm further apart than E1’s.
I’m just curious in general if that’s me alone with this kind of issue or other people notice it too. I guess a new hw revision that spaces the knobs apart would be a mess at that changes all the dimensions, but maybe going for slimmer knobs could be a good alternative?
