Rate Functions for Center Jog Wheel

barnes2000barnes2000 Registered User, Hog Beta
I really like the new rate wheel on the Hog4, but I did like the spring action wheel on the 3 too. Is there a way to add Cuelist Rate and Effects Rate to the center jog wheel? The spring action in the jog wheel is nice for on-the-fly rate changes. without overshooting the set rate. The rate wheel on the left can be used for on-the-fly rate changes too, but there is no way to feel where you are on the wheel. like you can with the spring action wheel.

    I think Stephane's request is good too, especially since none of the other consoles have the center jog wheel, however, I would still like the rate option for the jog wheel too please.

    Yes of course it should assignable at all special wheels.

    It's a big vote from me to get rate on the jog wheel. I never knew the rate wheel wasn't sprung when I ordered. I assumed it was the same. At the moment I see it as a step backwards I'm afraid.

    I'd also like the two encoders to scroll vertically and horizontally for the centre display.

    I love the new rate wheel, the sprung wheel was monopolized a hand and now I can choose the rate and Keep my hand for other stuff.

    Yes I can see the benefit there, I'll give you that! :-)

    I think if it can be enabled on the jog wheel then it's the best of both worlds. With the old sprung way,yes you lose a hand, but you can keep your eyes on other things. With the new way you need to look at the display as its so sensitive.

    I'd also like to see syntax for the restore rate button. For example - press 3 restore would restore the rate over 3 seconds. Perhaps it can already do this....I haven't played with it much. It will get taped in place for my show to make sure it doesn't get knocked and mess up my timings! I understand a disable setting is coming soon...

    I'd love to use time to restore rate!

    +1 for the restore time. One of the key reasons to make the wheel without spring was that with spring you can't have that much resolution for adjusting the rate.

    As long as we're posting about rate, how about a flash key option that makes bumping the flash key toggle the fader from Intensity to Rate?

    And a learn rate (by tapping) would also be useful.
