I have just got a VMS4 from Zzounds, and unlike many people on here, am actually very happy with it. I do have some occasional problems which I hope will iron themselves out with use. My biggest problem is that only a few days in, ALL the hash marks have rubbed off my channel faders and crossfader. This is not acceptable... I have had a plethora of mixers and controllers throughout the years, and I have never had them wear out for at least a year or two of regular HEAVY use. Also, my channel 4 fader DIED last night mid set. I can overlook that as a bad fader in manufacture, but I rely upon the hash marks to allow me to set my levels accurately. Please help. I have not heard this problem mentioned as yet, and I'm VERY unhappy about this. I'd post a photo, but I can't figure out how.
