Extra Switches: Sustain Pedal, Panic Button, etc


#66

Or you press two or more of the existing buttons. No need for an extra one.
Do I hear a “Burn the heretic” ?

Pushing 2 buttons currently has a function: XY touch-controller :wink:


#68

thats why I said “or more”…using both hands and pushing all 4 would be an appropriate reaction :slight_smile:


#69

I want two of these:

A two-hand punch and a curse, and here we go! :smiley:


#70

Would you use a car, where you have two big panic buttons on the dashboard :slight_smile:

I like a non-visible solution.


#71

YES, I WOULD! Because they obviously activate the front BGM-71 launchers! :wink:


#72

The problem is not zynthians but midi’s


#73

Wenn could write that in big letters under those big panic buttons.

Hello fellow Zynthian users,

I’d like to see one or more mini buttons at the back of the case for that purpose.
If the MIDI LEDs are orientated to the top left of the corresponding MIDI jack, the space might be enough for one or two push buttons next to the “ventilation” holes.
I could imagine that the buttons could be placed where the zynthian logo cvurrently is.

Just my 2 cents…
Greetings and Gd bless you,
Marius

I could use a PANIC better, that restarts zynthian-ui.
Especially when I play with lv2, they tend to hang and the UI freezes.
