I was doing things with just 4 slices on the crossfader and it was bugging me that the bold lines weren’t anywhere near where the slice change would occur. Solution = set scene B to slice 5.
Yes, unless you use 64 slices, you have to set “last slice number + 1” for scene B. Scene B will play last slice.
Obvious with 16 slices.
Scene B = 17. Slice 17 (and above values) plays last slice (16).
Even with that setting, marks are not perfectly matching for me.
Does it mean that all new OT MK2 are going to be with this issue?
Yes - this has been the case for a long time already - it may even have been a factor with the last batch of Mk1s - Elektron would know when the transition was, but this is oldish news - perhaps there have been developments that aren’t publicly discussed - again, support will advise you best on this

@blindeveloper, it’s not clear from your photos, but you can compare installation details with my better MKII crossfader:
Yeah mine is nearly spot on like this one. I’m guessing it’s a mounting issue. Personally I wouldn’t stress about it, but if it bother you contact support, maybe there’s a way of shifting it a bit without having to send the machine away.
thanks, already sent request. will see how it ends
Actually elektron support responded with this message: "It’s not a common issue. This is actually the first time I have seen this. "
I prefer to hear that. Any people with same issue?
perhaps - as I pointed out, this is unusually bad - but I have read a few people on this forum bring this point up (just not so obvious afaicr as in that photo)- for it to be uncommon suggests it’s not merely just a case of it being a few mm short of the original fader and points to something else (it was after all someone at elektron who advised a user here that the OG component was substituted for a marginally shorter throw one) - all the more reason to investigate the midi output as I proposed -however, the reply suggests you will have a solution to this one way or another - it’ll be good to hear what the reason was
Unfortunately they haven’t answered this question
Mmm. I’ve very recently realized (as an OT newbie) that in the case:
Rev with 0 send
SCENE A ON (127 send to rev)
SCENE B OFF
I still have some of the scene A fx applied very slightly if the crossfader is on the right end. I would have expected it to be completely off, but the reverb is still applied very subtly (setting scene A to off clearly bring it back to 0)
Is this the normal software behavior or could I possibly have the same hardware issue?
Check crossfader leds :
The first and the last values are supposed to be green (MKI).
There is a calibration procedure…
To reset the crossfader press FUNCTION + SCENE B while in test mode.
Calibration fixed the issue, thanks so much for the info, had completely forgot about the test mode!
aaa calibration! Celebration!
I have a issue with my OT mk2 crossfader. I can’t reach the start of scene A.
I tried to calibrate it in test mode but the value can’t go under trigs 2 or 3.
Now, I can’t attribute anything to scene B because it applies changes on my sound even if the crossfader is fully left.
I already submited a ticket to elektron support but maybe someone has been thru this and know a solution.
EDIT : problem solved I found the solution here : Crossfader not reaching its maximum
Thanks @sezare56 (again !!!)
Yes you’re right ! Thanks guys !
