I would like the rotary encoders to go from MIDI 0 to 127 in one revolution. It seems that it is more like 1:2 in that it takes two full revolutions to go from 0 to 127. Or less even. When I map a rotary encoder knob to a control in a plugin, they typically have a "physical" range from 8:30 to 4:30 (in terms of clock face). Having to do two full turns is annoying when it should match a physical knobs behavior.

 The rotary knob acceleration setting seems to do nothing to help this (if anything).

Am I just going to have to live with this weirdness? The sliders are 1:1 in terms of range of motion...

Unfortunately this is normal because the pots Arturia have used are low resolution. They cannot cover 127 values smoothly in one turn. As you can see, you are one of many people who have raised this issue over several years but until Arturia fit the machine with higher-resolution digital pots there isn't going to be a solution.

Hey James,

I'm experiencing the same problems as you. Did you find a solution in the end?

Joshua.

Refer to my explanation above that there won't ever be a suitable solution until Arturia use higher resolution pots. Acceleration is an option but the results will not be smooth. They use cheap low resolution pots. Simple as that.
