Unlimited Number of Assignable Knobs/Buttons/Pads in Effect Chain Macro Controls

asked Jan 20, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by Funkybot (21,580 points)
Currently, the Macro Controls on Effect Chains are limited to 8 knobs, 8 buttons, and 2 XY pads. On multiple occasions, I've needed more than 8 knobs. Please add functionality that would allow users to customize the number of knobs, buttons, and XY pads along with free-form movement of their placement within the Macro Control screen.

The impact of this would be that users would essentially be able to create custom layouts for their effect chains.

Thank you for the feature request.

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue.

note to Presonus - if you opt to add this feature, please don't forget to add "paging" to the Macro modes on the Faderport 8/16 as well!

Also, it would be very helpful to remove the limitations on parameter assign-abilities with Macro Control buttons too.

I'd love this!!!! I'm using the macro controls a lot and it would be great to have even more of them!

This is a great request. 

I'd like to be able to customize the macro controls for different situations or to control different plugins. For example: 16 knobs, no X_Y pads,  or No knobs, 4 X-Y pads, etc. 

Also buttons should be assignable to all plugin controls just like knobs and X_Y pads. 

At the very least, if the Macro Controls aren't user customizable, then we need S1 to have a lot more of them by default.

On my Komplete Kontrol, I've set up 4 pages x 8 knobs with different CC assignments, but Studio One can't handle more than 8 knobs - The others simply don't respond although S1's on v.5.2. This is unique - but not in a good way. I want to be able to tweak lots of stuff in real time, then edit it later. Come on Presonus, this one is loong overdue!
