As fas as I remember there are two different types at the Rogue: The
rotary knobs are fixed with a headless screw, the slider knobs simply
are sticked on the shafts. The rotary knobs use to stick on the shafts
even if the screw is removed.
Pulling the knobs with some force won't break the pcb. The pcb of the
Rogue is robust enough to stand this. I repaired or modified several -
its always the same with the knobs. I use a long-nosed plier as lever.
Lay a sheet of carton or plastic left and right of the pot on the
surface of the synth to prevent scratches. Then stick the pliers noses
as deep as possible under the knob and whatch, that the carton is under
the tips of the pliesers nose. Then lever the knob out with movements of
the pliers away from the surface.
I never achieved to destroy a knob that way,
