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:

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
