Zynthian’s core user interface includes the ability to adjust engine parameters using the four rotary encoders. Each engine’s parameters are displayed in pages with four parameters per page. If there are cascaded effects then the pages of parameters for the effects are presented in the same list. The order of the parameters is dictated by the upstream project and is not necessarily consistent or logical within the context of Zynthian. There has been much discussion on how best to order these parameters but may I ask some more fundamental questions?
- How often do you actuall use these pages to adjust parameters?
- Do you adjust many parameters or just a few, maybe common ones, e.g. volume?
- How irksome or easy do you find this part of the interface?
I am not currently looking for ideas on how to improve the UI. I want to understand how the community is currently coping with the current design. (I find it too difficult to find and adjust the parameters in a meaningful or useful way.) A better understanding of how people are currently using the UI and why may inform future changes.
I am particularly interested in how heavy users and also system architects (@jofemodo - that is you!) get on as they must have some strong opinion but please, everyone let me know your opinion.
