HOLD and turn Preen knobs for faster parameter editing?
« on: October 25, 2019, 09:13:35 PM »
Hi,
Rather than pressing the encoders to ZERO the value would it not be better to HOLD and turn to increase the rate of change x10?
I've found it pretty slow and frustrating to change large value ranges, I think this would make editing a lot faster and enjoyable.
Thank you for listening,
Robert.

Just wanted to add...
Say for instance you want full velocity on 4 modulation indexes from an initialised state, it takes 15 seconds of RAPID knob turning to make the value go from 0 to 16 x4 is over 1 minute to just adjust velocity on the modulation indexes!

I love the Preen but got damn its painful to edit, we need help Xavier!
Has anyone programmed any midi controllers to fully edit the Preen?
All my controllers only do CC's so I can only semi-edit the Preen.
Maybe a doepfer drehbank, anyone program up a map for that?

Such as pressing the INST button and turning encoders.
Very beginning of the doc  ;)

Yes CC editing is very limited. NRPN allows finer tune and greater number of parameters.
You still have the PC/Mac standalone/plugin editor :
