Here are the parts for integrating a power switch into the casing through the holes that were used for the XBOX button and two other buttons at the top of the case.

I've listed the parts you'll need in a subsection. You also need a soldering setup to connect the button to the wires, and you'll need a deburring tool to remove the tab from the inside of the hole in the switch cover base plate (USE GOGGLES AND GLOVES AND DON'T TOUCH YOUR EYES).

Materials and methods

The design is based around these specific components. If you swap out the cover or the button it may not fit. I use an assortment of lengths of #6-32 stainless steel flat head machine screws, nuts, and washers for all the screws on the keytar. 1 USB to micro-USB cable (or whichever your version of a Pi uses). Get one with the thickest gauge wire possible to reduce resistance.
