asked Oct 30, 2017 in FaderPort 8 or 16 Feature Requests by stefanriske (290 points)
Working on big (film score and post production) projects that often have hundreds of long track names (i.e. 8Dio Feathered Spiccato Violins) makes it quite painful to navigate with the control surface, because the display shows only 8ish characters of the full track name.
But since the display itself has enough real estate, a possible solution might be to provide a Faderport 8/16 menu setting like "display full track name by default". When activated, the Faderport 8 would use all 3 - 4 available display lines to show the track name by default and only show other values temporarily (for 2-3 seconds) when they've been triggered, i.e. by turning the pan knob or pulling the volume faders.
"Edit Plugin" mode would show the plugin values by default, as it already does.

This feature would be a huge workflow improvement, especially on big projects.
