Palette VL keys

Post by gooze » Mon Aug 11, 2008 11:28 am

What will the "List" and "FX"-keys right above the wheels on a Palette VL 16 control?
Will it be possible to route the "other"-key on LightPalette and Palette VL consoles to Variables to be able to fire variable from the 5x5 Century pad? This could be the same way as you set up the group-key in setup.

These buttons are the same as on the light palette.
The "List" button brings up the "big popup",
that shows, say which colors are in the color wheel.

The "FX" button allows you to apply an effect to whatever parameter is sitting on the wheel at the time.

I agree about macros, unfortunately it is a 5 year old request. :cry:

Macros (Was: Palette VL keys)

Along those lines, is there any chance of getting key stroke macros back? a la a 500 or LightPalette 90? Lua is very nice but a full scripting language isn't always necessary.

It's in the works. Some work has been done on this. It may be fall before we see it.
