colored labels instead of numbers
« on: February 21, 2010, 04:05:22 PM »
I very little problem but maybe it makes live a bit easier when setting up the 2box.

I was "on tour" with my 2box and I noticed some inconvenience with the labels on the cables. They are hard to read when you're searching the numbers to plug in the 2box-module. I think this should be changed in colored labels. I did that myself, and it works much easier! You don't have to read the numbers and you just have to look at the right matching color between the pad-->cable-->module.

Problem is that the labels are losening now...  8) Can you supply the new kits with sturdy colored labels and also deliver them to the people already owning a kit?

I really don't want to have colored cables. Having orange pads and module is colorful enough for me. =)

I don't really see where the problem is actually. You have short, mid-long, and long cables. They are all the same. So I use the shortest ones for the pads that are close to the module, and long for the farthest ones.

For example, I plug cable 1 in tom 3 in the module, then the other extremity in the pad I will use as tom 3. You can not be mistaken if you plug cables one after another.

Oh gosh, need to check that.

[EDIT] All my 8 cables are stereo. So, no colors are needed  ;)

I'm stubborn stil want colored labels no matter what you're saying here. Works much easier. I've made them myself. :rock:
