I think we disagree greatly about the utility of being able to edit consecutive steps with consecutive knobs with such a small number of knobs.
It feels like it slows down the process of inputting sequences, and requires two hands and a lot of movement between hands and buttons. If I’m going to use two hands for a lot of repetitive (up to 128 consecutively) actions, I’d prefer not having to rely on buttons as the only method of getting certain things done.
From a pedantic UX perspective, I’m sure that the existing method and what I suggested both violate a lot of best practices, but I think what I suggested offers better ergonomics (physically and semantically). With that said, this whole thing is likely very subjective, but the bouts of RSI that I’ve dealt with give me the illusion of piety.
I know there aren’t a lot of us on here, but I’d love to see opinions and alternatives from the rest of the users. I don’t think the solution I proposed is the end all, be all, but it attempts to solve problem that might or might not just be personal thing for me.
C’mon folks, I’m shocked to see a bunch of modular users on a forum who don’t have strong opinions about these things!!!
