lube for my consoles


i was wondering what you all would recomend for lubricating the faders on my O1V. i realise that because they are motorised they will never be as smooth a normal analogue fader but at the moment they are lie sandpaper. also what would i lube the faders on my behringer fader unit.

cheers ramjet

Generally wipe the slide bars with cloth then a SMALL amount of silicone oil or PTFE lubricant taking EXTRA care that none goes onto the carbon tracks of the fader.
Others, not so charitable may suggest that very deep water is best for both units, like a lake or the sea.
