Oooo nice!. If you don't mind, how does the EC11 feel? Both the rotation and as a button? I have wanted to try swapping a key or 2 for a rotary encoder on my preonic.

Thanks for your thoughts on that encoder! I think I'll end up ordering a handful of different ones to try out including the EC11. I would like to use one for scrolling so I need to find one I love cuz it will get used HEAVILY. I thought I remember that each position of the leftmost column of the Preonic can accept a rotary encoder. Is it that the MCU can only handle 1? Also, I could totally be misremembering.

Ah yeah. I just checked the current listing on Drop for the Preonic and it does say only 1 encoder though there are 5 potential positions to solder one in.

I'm using box jades, so the sound isn't very deep to begin with, but it's not bad- sounds short and precise.

The preonic comes with the underglow LEDs preinstalled, it works once you plug it in :)

What does the pot do? I am now obsessed with adding one to my keyboard and don't know why. :D

Haha yeah a bit of soldering required, but it wasn't too hard! Most of the functions can be done using the online configurator. No worries, I'm kinda new too, hope I helped!

Sounds fun. I have a whole mess of parts in my garage for bending, it makes me wonder what potential my next keyboard has :D
