      Hello,

      As a user of the bcr2000, I find it a hassle keeping track of all my
      preset maps(paper), when I actually find the paper, remembering
      which encoder/ button does what....sound familiar?

      I am thinking about producing a plastic overlay (2 part). This will
      be produced by a specialist manufacturing company.

      The overlay will be die-cut and will have scribble strips (mark with
      a wax/pencil to re-use, or permanent marker) for the users to write
      in the functions they have configured. you could even highlight
      different sections for osc1, osc2, filters, efx.

      With the design and manufacturing proscesses I am looking at a price
      of about £15 for a set of 5 (2-part) overlays.

      Please let me know what you all think of this idear, would you be
      prepared to buy any of these?

      Ive read another thread on this but that was a few months ago, any
      comments will be usefull at this stage of development.

      Thanks

                    My thoughts:

                    I just thought if someone could make up a die-cutter for the templates they
                    would be pretty easy to print on sticky backed laser printer (or better)
                    paper. I know I used the behringer templates to print on thick paper before
                    gluing to cereal box thickness card and then hand cutting out. And still
                    I've had to use blu-tack to keep them attached half decently to my bcr.
                    I only use my bcr in Mackie mode so there is never really any need for me to
                    change, but if I did, then removing the templates shouldn't prove too
                    difficult with any left over sticky/bits of card easily being taken off
                    with some lighter/art fluid and cotton wool.
                    The main thing is getting a nice edge, which took me a while with a scalpel
                    blade and still looks a bit amateurish, so if someone sould set up a die
                    cutter this would be excellent and I'd certainly buy - but like I said it
                    would be excellent to have them sticky backed (or optional depending on
                    others' thoughts).
                    Also it would be good to provide some with punch out die-cut/perforated that
                    you could run through your home printer for your own customised layouts.
                    And for the pre printed and completely blank ones it might be good to have a
                    laminated/stick back plastic coated overlay - for protection for the presets
                    and for a wipe on wipe off for some customisable options?
                    Either way it would be great to colour code the shift and Page+/Page-
                    options throughout the presets just to help with a visual aid - I'm always
                    forgetting which button to press to change another's functions.

                    Anyway just my thoughts - hope they help.

                    Cheers

                      When I was a kid in the 80's, there were these toys that were basically a picture book with plastic pages, to which removable stickers could be stuck.  These removable stickers would hold pretty firmly to the plastic pages, but they also peeled cleanly off, and could be restuck with equal strength later. 
                       
                      If anyone knows what type of material the plastic pages and the removable stickers were made out of, and knew a good way to print on the removable sticker material, this would be ideal for printing templates out on and using with the BCF/BCR.
                       
                      Does anyone know of such a material or pair of materials?

                      My thoughts:

                      I just thought if someone could make up a die-cutter for the templates they
                      would be pretty easy to print on sticky backed laser printer (or better)
                      paper. I know I used the behringer templates to print on thick paper before
                      gluing to cereal box thickness card and then hand cutting out. And still
                      I've had to use blu-tack to keep them attached half decently to my bcr.
                      I only use my bcr in Mackie mode so there is never really any need for me to
                      change, but if I did, then removing the templates shouldn't prove too
                      difficult with any left over sticky/bits of card easily being taken off
                      with some lighter/art fluid and cotton wool.
                      The main thing is getting a nice edge, which took me a while with a scalpel
                      blade and still looks a bit amateurish, so if someone sould set up a die
                      cutter this would be excellent and I'd certainly buy - but like I said it
                      would be excellent to have them sticky backed (or optional depending on
                      others' thoughts).
                      Also it would be good to provide some with punch out die-cut/perforated that
                      you could run through your home printer for your own customised layouts.
                      And for the pre printed and completely blank ones it might be good to have a
                      laminated/stick back plastic coated overlay - for protection for the presets
                      and for a wipe on wipe off for some customisable options?
                      Either way it would be great to colour code the shift and Page+/Page-
                      options throughout the presets just to help with a visual aid - I'm always
                      forgetting which button to press to change another's functions.

                      Anyway just my thoughts - hope they help.

                        Hello to everyone who has replyed to this thread.
                        Just though I'd give my thoughts on some of the issues raised.

                        I have decided to make the overlays non-adheasive for a few reasons

                        To allow the user to change the overlays quickly and easily.

                        If the overlays were sticky when not in use they would quickly get
                        covered in allsorts of stuff ie. fluff, hair, grit. They would soon
                        become unuseable.

                        The design of the overlays will fit well round the buttons and
                        should hopefully 'lock' the overlay in place, however some blu-tack
                        or thin double sided tape might be needed (I will know better once I
                        have a prototype)

                        The thing about 'setting up' a die-cutter. The dies have to be
                        specially made for each job and are custom.

                        All the overlays will be supplied blank, with scribble strips
                        printed onto them (double height 10mm). The user can write on them
                        as they please. They can be written on with a pencil/wax pencil to
                        provide a wipe off, and reuse, or a pemanent marker and highlighter
                        pen to provide colour and make the writing permanent.

                        I like the idear about using a home printer to print on them. This
                        is infact a brilliant Idear (thanks mate). I will look into making a
                        template of some sort maybe for word, as its the one I use and I
                        think alot of people will have it installed.

                        I dont know of that plastic from the 80's (sounds good though). I am
                        looking into getting thesr overlays made in .25mm plastic to allow
                        decent clearance for the buttons.

                        I hope this has answered a few questions, thanks again the feedback
                        has been invaluable, cheers

                        Martin

                        basically a picture book with plastic pages, to which removable
                        stickers could be stuck. These removable stickers would hold pretty
                        firmly to the plastic pages, but they also peeled cleanly off, and
                        could be restuck with equal strength later.
