    Hello! Can anyone tell me if the FA-08 has endless encoders for the 6 knobs?

    Thanks!

    My Juno DS uses ordinary 360 degree pots for the 4 control knobs.

    Ebay lists a single replacement encoder part for the FA-08 so I'd assume that is for the master encoder, not the rest of the panel controls.

    My advice is to contact Roland Pre Sales Support directly and ask them this question.

    They'll be able to tell you for sure.

    Gary ;)

    Thanks Gary. Just got the answer back from Roland - no, the 6 knobs are not endless encoders.
