Yet another macro suggestion/question

I'm not sure if this is implemented or if it's even possible in Unify, but many VSTs and DAWs feature the ability to select between three different behaviors for mapping linked parameters to physical MIDI continuous controllers:

  1. Jump Mode: moving a knob causes the corresponding linked parameter's value to instantly jump to the new value;
  2. Catch-Up Mode: linked parameters do not change until the controller's value and the macro's value coincide.
  3. Scale Mode: The linked parameter's value changes proportionately in the same direction as the physical continuous controller's movement until both values eventually become synchronized.

Does this exist, or can it be done? The current Jump Mode behavior for macros linked to mix levels, filter cutoffs, reverb or delay amounts, etc. often causes an abrupt change in sound the instant a knob is touched.

Terrific suggestion. You're absolutely right that the current approach is basically "Jump Mode". The other two modes are probably achievable; I have added this to my to-do list and will look into it.
