Not new but what about the Behringer BCR?

Lots of encoders and cheap. Had mine for at least five years and has not let me down yet.

Plus with this new firmware, a top notch sequencer.

^Appart from that thing weighing a ton and being the opposite of mobile, the encoders are just way too mushy.

The Faderfox PC4 (4 columns of 6 pots) is potentiometers, not encoders. Nifty for some uses!

The Faderfox LD2 does have visual feedback for one encoder at a time by using the row of LEDs in a specific mode.

It says 'discontinued, ask for remaining devices' - maybe he has some left, if not search for 2nd hand?

Bare with me, english is not my native :lol:
So as far i understand (from uncle google) pots are same thing with encoders, except they are non endless (and cheaper) correct?
I mean is there something like "endless pots" or visa versa "non-endless encoders"?

(If not 'endless encoders' term is meaningless, which is often used..)
sorry for my ignorance :oops:
