The community of Flex-Radio enthusiasts which select the DJ Console as their main user interface is steadily growing. Community members are sharing pictures]2 to make it even better. After several labeling solutions, a recent discussion on the PowerSDR-UI Yahoogroup ended up in an haptic improvement for the DJ Console’s tuning wheels.

Why improving the tuning wheels?

From our classic radios we are used that the main tuning wheel comes with a flying wheel effect. The DJ console’s big turning wheel however are pretty light and have very little flying wheel effect.

The solution

This is what brought Ray, Jerry (W3JJJ) and Marc (W3MDJ) on the idea of modifying the DJ Console by adding plasticine / modelling clay inside the tuning wheels.

Marc, W3MDJ did also a great job of documenting the DJ Console modification on his website.
