Customizing the face plate

hey all,

is it possible to remove the face plate of a digitakt to spray paint it?

i’m guessing this voids warranties, just wondering if anyone already tried and has some tips to share

Pull all the knobs off, unscrew the top screws, and take the faceplate off. There you go.

I’d advise against just spraypainting it, but that’s just because I’m a perfectionist and the paintwork on Elektron gear is better imo. Also you’d be covering up the text!

heres what one owner did to customize their DT…

does anybody know an efficient and inexpensive diy way of making lettering on painted surfaces?

so far i used to use decals with mixed success.

silk screening seems to be the right solution but it is an overkill for my needs (however, i am considering to go this route if i won’t find any descent alternative).

engraving/laser engraving requires even more room and money than silk screening kit so im not considering it at all.

i have seen vinyl/polyester overlays/skins. they look quite sharp but this requires special printer would imagine.

so are there any other options?

These are cool, they do them for several devices. Failing that screen printing isn’t too expensive but it’ll take you a couple tries to get the process right
