    Updated: GUI knob kit Moogy.

    Moogy knobs, scales, buttons, rocker switches and (sequencer) lamps.

    Thank you, Paule.

    I don't know yet if i will copy the real version exactly. I love the way the original looks, but i have a few questions about the build that i want to reskin. I will post those questions here next weekend l.

    Progress:

    I made the synth deeper (wider along the Y axis), and the controls / graphics larger / wider by getting rid of the unneeded memory banks section. Eventually it'll probably hold a volume knob and a scope display.

    Here you can place your logo

    For the left side: an amount for DCO and VCF to bend, volume, transpose and LFO trigger is a fine thingy.

    Great idea about the logo! I could make the logo light up as a level lamp, like i did with the amp symbol on the Krog SM20.

    I know, it's really fine. I dont really know how to do it, though. Guido didn't include it in the GUI but i think he used Midi CC inputs for midi control. I'll have a look next weekend.

    I could replace the chorus with my cHorus Chorus and include the controls in the right section of the control panel. I don't know yet.

    The Roland VSTi GUI is very ugly imo. Too crowded for a synth that's supposed to be a reincarnation of a Juno 60.

    Yes, there are too much buttons and knobs on the surface. I don't know how it sounds.

    Can you realise the bend and mod sens. Shown on the left side. Or is this the space for your logo?

    Probably. I'm not going to put my logo on the design. It already has my name on it with the "Bollard" (Roland) logo.

    Hey Chet. I left a reply message in my UL comment section, but I'll repeat it here: if you need any of the lamps, buttons or switches in a particular size, feel free to send me a DM. I already have them 3D-modeled so all i have to do is render them in a different size.

    Remember that Kontakt-looking brass ensemble that I once started a thread on? It's working, and almost complete. But while I like the look of it, it's workflow is turning out to be awful.

    I'm thinking it's is due for a redesign for the sake of usability, and might be a good fit with your Moog-style panel elements. Its appearance would also be more timeless. I've been admiring the Moog Subharmonicon. If I go that direction I may ask for some bigger buttons. I like their look. I'll try some mock-ups this weekend.

    That'll look totally great and very different from your original design (which also looked great, btw)! Man, the Subharmonicon must be my favourite desktop synth design. Moog does things right.

    Diddling around with a reskin of Guido Weber's Juno 60 build.

    Eventually i want to make a full size GUI with keyboard, but i'm working on this desktop sized version for fun.
