Hi Mike,

that's good news. I searched the internet back and forth - and also found those at several sources. But I hesitated to buy them as no seller tells that one could modify /insert labels.

So I will get me some and then label the "clickies".

Cheers

Clicking on the link brought me to the latching version of those switches. I believe you want the Momentary NON latching type. Yes?

That would be correct...

That's right Steve,
I ordered the momentary switches - had them on my radar for a while and rushed through dozens of different sources - looking all the same, only difference was the pricing ...

But nobody described that one could disassemble and then label them individually. So I hope the ones which I ordered will be of that kind.

Cheers

Hi I don't know if I am doing something wrong I can't seem to get this version to play any music out side the GUI on auto start up all the buttons work but will not play. It works fine in the GUI

Hi Raimund
The clicky switches are easy to strip for adding numbers and words to the button, see photo, a knife blade under the button will lift off the clear cover. The insert in the button can be removed by inserting the knife blade at the ends, this will release the opaque insert where you can stick on a vinyl letter or word. Further examples for connecting switches and wireless/ usb numeric keypads can be seen on pages 22, 23 and 25.

This is a great piece of software very versatile. Thanks to Mike

Hi RainbowJuke (what a name!),

thanks for this very helpful illustration. Hope, my clickies will arrive pretty soon so I can jump on my next Fruitbox project.
Yes, I join you in thanking Mike so much as this wonderful piece of software helped me to get my Wurlitzer alive again.

Cheers
Raimund

Well, it's been a while but I promise I didn't fall off the face of the earth. Just a little 12 hour surgery and 8 months of chemo to kick colon cancers ass, and now I'm back. Something like that really helps you put your priorities straight. Like working on your classic video game collection and finishing that damn jukebox... Glad to see this is still being developed.

The Other Mike....
