Here for the gear
 

Hey there I was told on the EMU users group on facebook (you should join it if you are on there) that these are the tac switches for my e6400 so im pretty sure they will be the ones for the e5000.... i havent got around to fixing my f6 button yet so i cant definitely vouch they work.

Data wheels turn up on ebay from time to time not sure where you could get a new one though?

Maybe this one should work:

I have an Asr-x and they change the data knob with this one. I will order this for my Asr-x, if it fits i will replace the data knob on the E 5000 with it.

Thanks for the Tip with the Facebook group. If you want i can post back when i got the parts if they did fit or not.

The encoders are described as 90VC/rev in the Emu technical documents, either 24 or 36 detents can be used. As such, I don't think 24 pulse one will work very well...

You can install new encoder but it will most likely have the same issues.

Install 2 capacitors of 1uF value as described in here:
E-MU fix

After you install them, recalibrate the encoder from the EOS menu.

Report result here in the thread.

I replaced my encoder years ago. I think I just found the part number from the faulty original (stamped/written on the part). It was a Bourns part. I sourced an updated Bourns part from Digikey (basically the same spec). Part numbers came up easily enough searching manufacturer web site.

I didn't need to use the caps on the replacement, though I think they're generally a good idea, and do get used on other designs too.

The tactile (not tactical) switches should be simple enough to source. Have you disassembled your sampler yet? Normally these would be normally open momentary push buttons. I often grab generic parts from local suppliers for these things, as long as the dimensions match, and the spring action and housing feels sturdy.

I've made PCBs for the older style PC414 encoder boards with integrated capacitors. In my experience it's easier to remove the three pin header than it is to desolder the whole encoder.

I'm still trying to get sight of a PC10395 board of the style you've pictured here so I can take measurements and make some of those up too.
