Overlays!

Post by Geoff Quickfall » Tue Feb 04, 2020 6:13 am

The 41 needs keyboard overlays!

I see the bezel has three small slits on either side just like the 42, but contrary to the 42, the 41 needs overlays!

Yes! Would the old 41 overlays fit?

An overlay is much better than a layover!

Obviously they won't. 8-)

Since I've never seen an original 41 other than in photographs, it's not obvious to me!

Even that should have been sufficient imho. YMMV

Of course you'd have to cut an extra column of keys out but I can't tell if the other key spacing is the same or not. I guess it must not be.
I never looked at those old photos thinking of a comparison to the 41x before. Now that I go back and look at them, I do see that they aren't compatible.

Hey, at least I've never lost a patient! Dead or alive I've always known right where they were.

Hello Walter et al!

No they will not fit. Yes there are slits / slots?

And yes the DM41 needs overlays (layovers are great though!).

Let alone for all the modules that are resident or may be resident.

Latest version of my CL overlay:

The Zenrom key invokes the Zenrom module therefore I need to create these:
