labeling stuff

Postby D-Rainger » Mon May 18, 2015 7:17 am

Y'all know this...

What do you think if there were no socket markings on that top end panel? There'd be a little diagram on the baseplate, but no white panel extension down the back.
It's pretty obvious what's going on there, yes? DC in socket looks familiar, pedals usually go right-to-left for input and output, and there's a minijack'd Igor... which fits in the 3.5mm socket....
Once you know how it goes you're all set, right?

Thinking about the practicalities of labeling.

That's how Scott does it on the Montreal Assembly Count to Five - maybe hit him up and see what sort of feedback he's received about it. I'm all for less labeling and a more clean look.

The layout seems obvious to me. The offset in and out might be confusing to morons.

You should be fine with a diagram on the baseplate.

Once people are familiar, they should know where to plug stuff in. It's only that first time.

That was what I was gonna say, the CT5 is the same layout with no diagram and I can use it out no problem, I would have no problems with what you're proposing and I don't see how anyone else would either. You only need to figure it out once and then remember!
