Re: Graphics for Enclosure

Hi,

Does anyone know exactly what these are called, and where to find them, (sorry about the drawings, but you get the idea)? The 9V is usually located at the DC Jack, and I just wanted to put an increase/decrease symbol on my pots. I can design the increase/decrease with Paint Shop Pro or Gimp if I need to, but if a graphic alreay exists no sense reinventing the wheel...

Thank you

jimilee

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Yes. I've done Google, but nothing matching what I'm looking for. I'll work on it myself.

Thank you

google images "DC connector sign" will give you some useable results for the first one
with "volume scale" you get some kind of useable things, but you'll need to heavily tweak them. I have not found anything good for the latter myself
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Here's some graphics from chromosphere's site: http://www.diyguitarpedals.com.au/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=429

Some excellent vector art for pedal components, I use this to lay out every single build: http://www.ontheroadeffects.com/vectorpack/

In synth land that knob one is called a swoosh and the most famous example is the Serge Swoosh:

Note that bipolar controls have a reverse swoosh going the opposite direction.

Progress! Paul @ DIYGTRPedals.Com has a download with 40+ pedal graphics that one can download. Saves lots of heart-ache messing around with GIMP or PSP or Corel, etc!! Thank you, Paul!

I like digging out old threads ;-) Just received an advertisement from Native Instruments for their "Phasis" VST and thought that their decal-design (6 different on one pedal!) was pretty decent and might be a nice inspiration for us:

Here is a hot tip..

I will download PDF manuals for newer synths/keyboards and find a page that has the knob artwork I need and import it in to Photoshop. Most PDFs are 100DPI or higher for print so you can get a pretty clean picture from it.

Hope this helps.

Example:
https://www.moogmusic.com/sites/default/files/Minimoog_Model_D_Users_Manual_Web.pdf
Just zoom in on the photos and import that page to Photoshop/Gimp etc...
