Red LED Screen Wishes - Flash the current Knob Functions, etc?

4

As I'm learning the Deluge, I realize I really miss another feature from Electribe etc.
Pressing the buttons between the gold knobs, it's easy to select the wrong one.
( The lettering is small, and can't be seen in the dark! So I try to memorize the position... )
If the screen just briefly said "CUTO" then "RESO" for example, you'd know you were editing filter.
Turning the knob would bring up the current number as normal.

This would also help with the Shortcut edits, because the text there is even less readable. ; - )
( Perhaps our eyes were already blurred by too much laptop DAW usage? )

Yes, I want to use this in shows, where the lighting can be really chaotic!
And you want to look at the audience instead of the gear as much as possible. 8 - )

Electribe 2 surface printing is also difficult, but the presence of the little screen as above really helps!

I was really skeptical of a design with no dot matrix screen, but the rest of it is so cool, I thought it justified.
( I suppose it's a bit more of a power drain? )

Still would wish to name the song files. Glad there are 999 with A-Z! At last I won't run out of space

    That's a good suggestion, to display the selected gold knobs briefly on the screen! :)

    what we really need is a way to remotely control all of those buttons with sysex or nrpns so we can build an interface using a diy controller or onscreen controller that is backlit or large enough. not hating on what it is now but yeah live would be difficult with such tiny print and buttons. of course when you memorize it it gets much easier.

    I haven't heard that one before. ; - ) but Agent Smith is often mentioned.

    It's better to speak clearly than be misunderstood.

    Yes, it would help also for the Shortcut parameters,
    ( though my hand is starting to remember where the Arp control is, etc. )
