This DAW Control Addendum is a bit vague on what exactly Control Link will do on the SLIII32. Will I be able to choose the order that those parameters appear across the Fat Channel knobs? If the number of parameters spill over past 8, can I page through them from the fat channel page buttons? Are the number of pages set to 2, or will it expand for plug ins with a ton of parameters? And if so, will it remember those assignments for every instance I use of that plug in without having to assign knobs every time I instantiate it? Can the knob in the master control section be assigned to scroll the timeline, or zoom functions?

Is the new timeline basically indefinite again due to the "nasty bug" or are you guys still thinking that it will be out by the end of December? March will be a year I've had this console, and DAW control is what I bought it for. I was more than willing to wait the first ETA you guys gave, then that became Q4 2017 (almost gone), wasn't happy but it still felt like it could be worth it. If it's going to be many more months you guys need to kick in some serious incentives that go beyond posting a PDF. Not trying to be sarcastic, but seriously...

For the curious, I received this reply on the forums:

"Will I be able to choose the order that those parameters appear across the Fat Channel knobs?"

Yes. Bear in mind, control link is for 3rd party plugs. Native plugs already mapped.

"If the number of parameters spill over past 8, can I page through them from the fat channel page buttons?"

Yes

"Are the number of pages set to 2, or will it expand for plug ins with a ton of parameters?"

For now, 2 pages. Not sure of expansion capabilities.

"And if so, will it remember those assignments for every instance I use of that plug in without having to assign knobs every time I instantiate it?"

Mapping is for every instance of that plug, across songs and projects.

"Can the knob in the master control section be assigned to scroll the timeline, or zoom functions?"

On the record edit screen, I believe that knob controls scroll. Zoom can be assigned to the user buttons next to the main fader.
