Post Paia Proteus 1 knobs.
Hi there!

My Proteus 1 is missing a few of those classic Paia knobs. It´s relly annoying! :cry:
Anybody know where i can find replacements?

Hello Glenn.

I wish I could say we had an extra box or two of these, but we don't. They were made by Phillips Plastics long ago.

surplussales.com has some similar looking ones described as being for D-shaped shafts.

tubesandmore.com has many choices but not the specific type.

digikey.com has some that wouldn't look out of place if used as a set in a group such as the main Pitch and Volume or ADSR sections.

Thanks! I´ll have a look. I´m shure i´ll find something that will do just fine.
Are there by any chance still replacement pots and rotary switches available for the proteus 1?
Another thing, Years ago i think i read somewhere about a computer control software for the Proteus 1, i think it was for Apple II. Is that correct??

None of the pots remain, but we do have some rotary switches (as does mouser.com, a better source for parts).

Yes, there was a short assembly language listing for reading/writing Preset Parameters and Keyboard Control when the Apple II was linked via a parallel I/O card to a 25 pin D connector added to the 8750 Proteus I.

It's in the Calibration and Using manual posted here:

Do you know if these are the same knobs as the ones used on the Stringz'n'Thingz? If so, I have a bunch of those since I completely transplanted my Stringz and used very different knobs on it.

They are the same knobs.

Great write-up on wringing that noise from the Stringz' Chorusing board!

Thanks!

Would be great if we could make some kind of deal.

Thanks for your feedback Scott!
