Feature request: (revised) global horizontal knob motion range instead of vertical

August 08, 2019 - 10:01 pm

Problem: when certain uneditable values such as [RESONATOR:RHYTHM] with a range of 1.1.1.1 to 8.8.8.8 require 1024 positions to fully express the value, and this particular setting needs to be precise but is uneditable. A small iPad mini presents very small range to maneuver accurately in the vertical direction to achieve an exact setting.

Solution: Globally, use horizontal motions for knob adjustments rather than vertical for all knobs. A horizontal motion would present more physical range with which to express accurate values.

Assumptions: UI actually allows this change. Observation of current implementation presents the impression of double the precision based on assumed active area for knob motion detection. [i]Making this particular value editable presents a larger problem.[/i] :-)

Immediately after posting, I realized the stated use case was sort of silly. I had got wrapped around the axel recreating an eventide video with the 1.3.5.7 pattern trying to dial it in ‘knob mode’ instead of setting it up in ‘note grid’ - which I have been using exclusively.

However, trying to at least redeem the question, I noted that the iPhone version didn’t seem to have ‘note grid’ - in which case the ’note grid’ isn’t available, and the original feature request remains. Sadly, I don’t use the iPhone version so can’t be sure if my claims, nor remain dependent on the outcome. Sorry folks! I would like iOS background support so H9 control doesn’t reset every time I switch to another app - but that’s another thread...
