Anyone know where to find the same knobs as on the Arturia BSP? Or the reference?
I had no luck seeking for keywords on internet. I thought I'd ask here before asking Arturia directly.
Black would be perfect, but grey will do if no black.

Do you need to purchase replacement knobs or are you looking for larger quantities for DIY?

Don't know, if this is the same as in Arturia BSP, but it's the only solution, I could find for DIY:

Thanx Plugler thumbs up
I'm looking for the knobs, not the pots. Nevertheless the link you posted looks very interesting and gives me actually some ideas.

I need to find 20 knobs, same amount as on the BSP itself.

Yes they are touch sensitive so probably have some sort of carbonized rubber in them...possibly manufactured exclusively for them.
I love those knobs too! Please post back if you find out anything thumbs up

A simple search has resulted in this: Lot of 40

Despite the price, the BeatSteps don't seem included lol

Holy crap that's 10$ per knob OMG ha ha! (CAD)
It would almost be cheaper to just buy BSP's lol

Woah... If it's the same as on the Arturia MiniLab you can get a used MiniLab for something like $30 and it includes 16 knobs...

Thanx a lot for helping thumbs up
Yeah I saw this. Unfortunately it's the only result I coud find.
But I don't buy on Reverb website and this kind of price is simply ridiculous anyway.

I am trying to find an alternative to Large Soft Encoder (D-shaft 12mm). I bought some I thought good as alternative but they were too short. Maybe it'd be easier to search for encoder pots which have shorter threads!

These Arturia knobs are 1 or 2 mm less large which is perfect for my needs.

BTW I don't think the touch sensitive thing is related to the knobs too. It looks like it is only related to the pot.

As I needed 20 knobs, I asked Arturia for replacement for the BeatStep Pro (by chance there are 20 knobs on the BSP).

Arturia answered me. I had to give the serial number of the BeatStep Pro, address etc.
I have one BSP, so no problem.
Then a couple of days later a kind answer with price and where to pay.
11.99 EUR + shipment (check with them the best solution for your location).
A couple of days later I go them.
Black knobs would have been perfect but only in grey. Will do with grey.

I hope it helps thumbs up

BTW: not sure it's possible to buy without BSP and larger quantity. I can ask if you wish as I have a direct contact now.

EDIT: actually I'm gonna ask directly right now, so you know.
Will report back.

Okay. So the answer from support is: they do not sell officially if you have an Arturia product or not, but you can contact them and they'll see with you what they can do.

I'll mention it here again: the Arturia support was really helpful and fast.
When I see how I struggled all day with La Banque Postale and TNT (not even getting any answer and spending hours with overtaxed phone numbers), I really wish this kind of support was not an exception here in France.
