I didn’t realize that was being considered, and it’s a good thing to be able to do quickly.
However, I’m not sure about everyone else, but personally I don’t get much utility out of being able to edit 4 consecutive values with four consecutive knobs, and paging between two groups of four cells is a bit awkward.
This is a new thought, so bear with me…
What about a slight paradigm shift so that there’s only a SINGLE* active cell whose value is changed with the first knob, which would function as proposed above.
The second knob: allows one to scroll left and right to change the active cell, and pushing the second knob allows one to toggle the gate function.
Third knob: could be used to expand the active cell to encompass to MULTIPE* consecutive cells. Pushing the third knob could either (I’m not sure which is preferable) a) cycle through multiples of cells (2/4/8/16/etc), b) simply jump back to having a SINGLE active cell, or c) scale values as the first knob does.
Fourth Knob (I’m just spitballing on this one): pushing selects active group of cells for moving. Rotating knob shifts selected cells left or right, pushing knob again drops selection. Alternatively, rotating knob could just move the active group (I’d worry about accidents), and pushing the knob while rotating could shift and wraparound values in current selection.
Again, it’s a new idea, and I’m not sure how clear I’m articulating it…
Does the above make sense (both conceptually and practically)?
What does everyone else think?
