I have been mulling over the MIDI Fighter twister. When I saw the Hydra synthesizer knob/screen design I was reminded of how I wish the Twister had a small screen just to display text below each knob. This would, hopefully, lessen that feeling of separation you can get from hardware controlling software.
That ain’t happening. But, the twister does have programable colour coding. So, I am hoping Audulus 4 can allow for some sort of knob/button colour coding for hardware controllers. I think that would be enough of a visual cue to keep things fluid.
The second thought has to do with focusing. What if when you zoom in on a section of a large patch, the knobs that are currently on the screen are the ones that light up on the Twister. Then when you move to another section, different knobs light up and there is a one to one colour match?
It would also be nice to be able to save screen locations that can be snapped to. So you could have maybe 3 or 4 locked screen zoom points that you can flip between without needing to drag the screen and resize it.
I have been thinking about some sort of Make Noise Rene sequencer the using the Twister, or both the Midi Fighter and the MF Twister.
I have to say though, I have done stuff like this in the past and have found that while it may be challenging and fun to setup, quite often the fact that it is not dedicated like a Rene would be, means it might not get used.
