FR Poll: Momentary/Lock Show Button Modes

FR Poll: Momentary/Lock Show Button Modes
« on: August 03, 2020, 07:58:45 AM »
I use the Show button for adjusting nested parameters like Aux 3 Velocity and Osc Slop. Currently you have to press Show, turn a related knob, and hit Show again to disengage it. On some parameters this is a bit of arm jumping.

When adjusting nested parameters I wish the Show button would behave like so:

- A quick press (less than 3/4 of a second maybe) would make it so the Show button turns off after the first adjusted parameter, to make it easier to adjust nested parameters. Perhaps the LED could blink to indicate itís in momentary mode.

- A long press (3/4 of a second or more) would make it so Show mode the way it does now, with a solid LED to show that itís in Locked mode.

What say yíall?

Or...

- Press Show and release: Hold mode
- Press Show and dial knob while pressed: Show is off after release

The problem I see with that is you canít operate it one handed while playing.

Good idea. Short press for momentary, long press for latch with blinking light when latched.

Thanks! I'm surprised more people didn't choose option three- who doesn't love crime-fighting cybernetic pizza-delivering samurai cats?

Thatís neat! I donít believe thatís in the manual and I mostly try to do this one handed while playing so I never really noticed. I could use two hands for this I Ďspose.

With that, Iím not sure if my suggestion would be a full-on improvement or just a change, so feel free to discount the request accordingly :)

This would help - I really miss the select buttons from the Pro2 which mean you rarely need to use the show button, I find myself using it all the time with the Pro3 and wishing I had three hands .. it would help if it defaulted to switching off as soon as it shows something - then a long press to latch.
