stop changing the knobs! pick a type and commit to it, or have your own made.
Simple bakelite knobs are the obvious choice, as they are from the '50s-70s....

I don't hate the new knobs, or even give a fuck, personally, just advice/opinion.

Pretty certain Eric can't get the grey/yellow knobs anymore (or the black ones that preceded them) - It's not like they're glued down, they're pull knobs even. If consistency matters to how they look, it's not difficult to customize your own set.

I like the different periods in Metasonix aesthetic. These will definitely be viewed in a few decades as the output of a significant electronics maker, and it's fun to consider the different aesthetic periods:

rackmount
pedals
wretch!
rude imagery and titles
grey utility boxes
black knobs/yellow panels eurorack
rk format/grey knobs
rk format/blue red knobs

Despite Eric's best intentions to seem grumbly and irritable, I consider him an artist in his practice, and these changes in appearance are very much an artist's behavior. So just get over it. Enjoy being around for these things.
