Roland DJ 1000

I came across a mint condition Roland DJ 1000 and couldn't pass it up. This mixer has a very warm and bassy analogue sound and of course the wicked filter section. The only problem was the pathetic faders.? I immediately contacted Elliot and was told that an Innofader Pro 2 could work if I could find a way to mount it.. The problem becomes obvious as soon as you pull out the stock crossfader, there is a circuit board right in the way. With further advice from Elliot I decided to give it a go. The hardest part was taking the risk of cutting the circuit board, however, with a dremel it was actually very easy. Connecting the Innofader to the mixer was done by making an adaptor from the #13 adaptor board and the harness clip from the Roland crossfader. I used two electrical diagrams to figure out the connections.? After testing it out I was very happy and relieved to find that it worked! Here are some pictures of the process.

This picture shows how to cut the board:

Next two pictures show how to connect power from the mixer to the adapter board:

Now this is how you connect the crossfader wires:

Not sure what happened to my previous post, but wanted to share some diagrams I mocked up to add to Kevink's post.

Here is the wiring diagram.

And here is a closer photo of where to re-solder the connections that were disconnected from dremeling through the traces at the yellow arrow. Specifically, it was helpful for me to understand  that only two traces needed to be severed to make enough room to fit the Innofader. This gives a good indication of where your Dremel cut should be.

Hello Con_quilla,

Thank you so much for your repost. Sorry I just spent the last week porting over my forum to another host so access to the forum may have been sketchy for a while. Now it's all ported over so things should be working well now.

I appreciate your attention to this!

Elliot
