Customize Knobs and Faders Design

Step by step tutorial to create your own knob, faders and use them in Usine.

We use the cool freeware tool named knobman

In Knobman

Use the Files/Open menu and open, for example /samples/LineShadow.knob. .knob files are knobman files.

On the right window you can test the knob layout, and you'll see that it has 31 frames.

Now use the File/Export image file menu command, rename the knob file as you want, this will save a png file.

In Usine

Add a control-knob in a patch.

In the knob settings-panel, tab design, click on image file and load the png file saved above.

Set frames count to 31, and frame alignment=vertical.

Disable show knob, show caption. and choose V align to bottom for the value


In the settings-panel, clicks on the snapshot icon and choose a name. Now you can see this snapshot when you edit the layout of a knob. You only have to click on this snapshot to assign this layout to your current knob
