Although, now I think about it, you may not get the full reach if the fader extends beyond the curved lip at the ends of the channels...

Hmm, yeah it looks like it would be close. That fader is 24mm, so you’d need around 12mm of clearance from the middle of that 4mm metal part. If you have a ruler lying around would be amazing if you could check it! 😄

I make it 11mm from the edge of the curved bit to the middle of the stalk, so it's close but probably ok. I'm going to order some anyway because I'm kind of curious myself! I'll let you know. :)

Edit: Ordered - will arrive Monday.

Is anybody 'travelling' with their Traveler kit yet?
Ironically, the box is rather large and not what I'd call "travel-friendly". Would be cool to see some sort of go-bag designed for the kit.

So you think some faders like these would go on instead? I like to use 1 finger instead of pinch type faders it has currently.
I just got the delivery. They do indeed fit very well and are solid, although they sit quite high (I should have realized that, but it does makes the clearance around the curved lip a non-issue!)

They feel quite good actually! :)

But the comment from @BatMeckley is absolutely true - there is no issue using the standard faders with your finger tips. The resistance is spot on and you don't need to pinch them at all.

For whatever it’s worth I’ve had absolutely no problem moving the faders with one finger so far.

So for owners of this, what are the main benefits given the high price point (over something like Nakedboards or the Nanokontrol2 or the Mixface)? I have the Mixface but don't use it (faders are too stiff). Nakedboard MC-8 is my go to because of the longer fader throw, perfect resistance, and I did end up using more than 3 faders for certain instruments.

I liked the simplicity of it
Plus, it looks really cool with the LED's :)

Useful if, like me, you flip between multiple apps like Logic, Cubase, Audition, RX8, Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Final Cut, Motion - each of which can have its own set of profiles which will autoswitch along with the app.

Maybe you can do that with the others you mentioned? I haven't used those. I bought this one because it was the successor to the cool-looking Palette Gear stuff that I'd had on my wishlist for a long time.

I found that it was just a much more elegant solution, and I use the buttons and knobs far more than I thought I would. Honestly when you figure how much it gets used throughout the day, it’s probably far and away the least “cost per use” item I have in my studio outside of my speakers.
And the ability to easily program otherwise awkward two handed pro tools shortcuts in to one button or knob has already saved me HOURS of time on this project. Plus it looks bitchin on the desk.

Did you set up an empty profile with all LED's turned off? I did as I did not want them to be on all day
