    Hi

    I am thinking of building a custom midi controller using a teensy microcontroller board. I have a few questions, some are component related and some are about the actual build.

    First question because it's bugging me; has anyone seen potentiometer caps like these? If so where can I get them because they are the nicest ones I've seen. I'm planning to buy illuminated pots from Alpha (Taiwan) to go underneath, hopefully giving the effect seen in the photo.

    Really it's the look of the controller that I want to get right. I'm using a teensy 3.2 so I should have enough I/O channels and all that, the wiring up is less of a problem as well but I may need help in due course.

    Can anyone recommend some arcade buttons that are good too? And any other quality components that you know of. Thanks!
