I had a chance to test LX600 recently.

One thing I did not like was the noise when the faders hit top or bottom.

 

Is this just a matter of calibration ? It doesn't have to reach the mechanical stop does it ? (That's what it sounded like..)

We are quietly working on this noise issue in the background. It will be fixed in a future update.

From my experience with audio mixers - wouldn't it do the trick to calibrate the faders with 0% and 100% a small distance from the end ?

As I recall there was no noise when faders moved without reaching the end positions.

 

Is fader calibration something the user can do ?

Yes it is the faders hitting the end points that cause the noise. You are right on the money about how we are working to resolve it.

Any progress on this ?

 

 

I've got my hands on a LX600 again, and I see now that one problem is that the cutouts for the faders are too short. There simply is no room for travel below 0% and above 100%.

Another is that the faders also hits the end when only moving to 90%....

 

I assume you know all this, but I can't see how calibration could fix this. Unless you calibrate at 12% and 88% of course...and lose a lot of travel....

The fader cutouts are 0.1mm longer than the fader movement.

 

We can definitely fix it, it is just a matter of finding the perfect compromise between speed, accuracy and noise. At the moment it is a low priority as there are only 5-6 users who have mentioned it as an issue and none of them say it is a major problem, just a little annoying.
