Oversynth shared this video, demonstrating how to install their panel overlays for the Moog Minitaur & Sirin synthesizers.
The overlays add labels for alternate control functions added in recent firmware updates, but also let you change the look of your Minitaur or Sirin. Five designs are available.
Here’s what they have to say about the overlays:
‘The overlay is printed on a highly durable, waterproof, and 100% recyclable polyester sheet (not vinyl, fiber, or plant-based). The matte finish is designed to minimize reflections from ambient light for maximum readability.
If the overlay becomes dirty, we recommend gently wiping it down with a soft cloth that is dry or slightly moistened with water. We do not recommend cleaning the overlay with isopropyl alcohol as this may damage the artwork.
Based on our testing, the following substances will severely damage the artwork if left on the surface for an extended period of time: tea tree oil, acetone, nail polish remover, bleach, household cleaners, and hand sanitizer.”
Oversynth also makes alternate panels for the Behringer Neutron, DSI Evolver Desktop, Elektron Model:Samples, Korg MS-20 Mini & Moog DFAM.
Pricing and Availability:
The Moog Minitaur & Sirin overlays are available now for $32 USD.

I bought the Evolver Overlay (which looks excellent) but, being in the UK, had import charges and post office handlings added. A very expensive prettifying exercise all in all.
Shame they aren’t sold in the UK at a reasonable cost, I suspect they would be very popular.
What I really want are eurorack conversions (or at least the front panels, I can do the rest) for all my Moogerfoogers CP251’s and Minitaur, since I might be “investing” in a eurorack rig of Moog-looking modules. I’m good with a stock Moog panel. They never had all the bells and whistles printer on them anyway.
The skinning crowd should be happy with these. I like to skin my iPad’s and Netbooks (when they were popular). I kind of wish there was a ‘standard’ eurorack look to modules. I get the artistic need for the one’s available. I just prefer my instruments that behave like equipment, look like equipment. If there was a version of each – and I’m only talking front panel color and font – then yay for me! It’s a small world – someone else must be an equipment fetishist like me 🙂
But but but the alternate functions stand out more than the primary functions. Think these guys make lovely, useful stuff but this one… I dunno.
