What are the specs of a S4 MK2 Tempo/Pitch fader ?

Hi there,

Someone spilled some liquid on my friend's S4 MK2 during a party, and the pitch is now going completely nuts, even after putting some WD 40 several times.

So, we are now planning to dissemble the controler and change the pitch by ourselves, but we can't find a reliable source on which spare fader is compatible or not (we only found for volume faders).

I have read somewhere (old NI forum) that the fader is an Alpha B10KX2, but there seems to be different specs for this one, and we can't be sure.

Anyone knows where to look ?

    hey @Kouent - reached out to the team and received some insightful information - hope this helps.

    The original is an "A-Plus" SL8016G-1V1-15G0-0B10K. These are difficult to obtain. It is a 10k ohm, Line Fader Dual, 80mm, Linear.

    I think this was based on the Pioneer B10k part. But the user needs to be careful to match the correct part as there are a lot of parts that are labelled "B10kx2" but are not.

    Here are the dimensions they will need to match:

    Welcome to the forum.

    Yikes, I think we all know someone that this has happened to. Luckily, I’ve only spilled drinks down myself in the past.

    I can’t give you the info you need but maybe @Ryan_NI can ask one of the folks backstage?

    Karlos.

    Hi Native community,


    I've reached the manufacturer (A plus electronics, based in Hong Kong) of the original fader (which is not produced anymore).

    They agreed to produce them again on this occasion ! I'm very glad for their help

    They first told me the minimum quantity was 3000 pieces (which was obviously way too much for my case)... but in the end, they agreed to produce only 10 pieces if I was still interested ! (for 200USD)


    Would someone be interested in taking a few pieces ? (@Nuno Moleiro maybe?)

    I could ship it from France to anyone who'd have a use for them.

    Or maybe your team would be interested in having a few pieces for maintenance @Ryan_NI ?


    Anyway, i'm super cheered to see how everyone gets involved in this case to try and help us, starting with you @Karlos Santos and @Ryan_NI ! This community never ceases to amaze me
