I heard someone on this forum that you need to change your tact switches every 6 months due to wear.

How true is this?

Can you tell us What’s your experience with tact switches? I’m a new mpc user.

That's not even remotely true. You ideally would only want to change them if the current ones you have are giving you issues. Even then, you can try cleaning them with deoxit before deciding to swap out the tact switches.

Tell me who told you this silly stuff so I can go and slash their bicycle tires.

No you don’t. One time is good enough with the proper tact switches from mouser or Digikey and proper soldering technics.

I’m sure I’ll piss off some people who make a living servicing MPCs at ridiculous prices.
