Visualize note data (picture included)
« on: October 25, 2014, 06:59:04 pm »
We need a way to visualize note data on the beatstep when its used without a PC. The scale modes are nice, but still no direct visualization of the note being selected can make for some unpleasant moments. I think there is a rather SIMPLE solution...elegant even since the beatstep has multiple color leds.

When you turn one of the note/step knobs, hold another button while turning so that you can see the visualization of the note being selected as you turn a knob. Example,

Blue = White keys / Natural
Purple = Black keys / Sharps (Flats)
Red = Selected note (moves as you turn the selected pitch/cv value knob... )

  • I don't think representation of what octave you are in is important..and could needlessly make it more complex.
  • The Transpose feature should also be able to use this same type of visualization so that you can see the shift.
  • The available/highlighted notes should change based on the scale/tuning you have selected.

Good idea! Beatstep needs a lot more visualization to be really useful.

In addition:
- transpose (example: 1 to 12 for the half notes and maybe 13 to 16 for the octave.)
- center, min, max in CNTRL mode (example: Fast blue flashing of the CTRL/SEQ > RECALL > SHIFT buttons. )

Full live sync to the MCC in Sync mode would also help, please.

BTW: It is so annoying to generate new user templates on every Recall or Sync in MCC. Make it switchable, please.
