Scrolling Text and alphanumeric kbd

When you hold the shift button down for a period of time (maybe 3 seconds) the top 3 rows of the note entry pad could become an alphanumeric keypad and the bottom 5 could scroll text (conditionally based)
i.e. sample name, track name, preset name, song name, etc.
It's easier to find a song or track by name rather than by it's number (001A-Z through 999a-z)
So- the LED readout could display the number and the note entry pad could display the name.

    This would be a cool way to display params and settings , great idea, unsure about the keyboard part, might be awkward ?

    How about using the two knobs to change letters and the other knob to change position?

    that could work, but it would take time away from composing!

    the color of the alphanumerics could chenge based on the track, perhaps.
    I haven't opened it up yet, but I foresee having difficulty identifying what song I'm on without hitting "play" once I build up a library unless I keep an auxilliary notepad close at hand.

    I think when you hit "save" (for synth/kit/song) the keyboard could pop up and you could hit "back" if you wanted to use the standard numbering convention.

    "LOAD" button could call-up keyboard so you can search by name. You want the song called "Sexy Robot" so you type "s", the song "Sappy Love Song" shows up because it's alphabetically first-- then you type "e" and "Serious Love Song" shows up-- then "x"-- and so on in that fashion.
    Beats scrolling though dozens of numbers. ;)
