Change the default layout of scribble strips!

Let's put this rudely simply: The default layout of Faderport scribble strips is ****. The crucial info is shown with micro sized font and the majority of space is used for hideously large pan info and indicator. Please, change the default layout to 0x05 (see manual) or make the different layouts user selectable as soon as possible! The scribble strips are too valuable for such poor layout they currently have!

Absolutely! Making this user selectable would be hugely valuable.

The layout that is now is complet ****. I am using my Faderport 16 with Logic Pro X and it's like the info in the scribble strip takes up 40% of the window. So 60% is left. It's such a waste. You have the only product on the market that has 16 faders in one unit and that is really cool. But you have the worst layout in any scribble strip. Give us the options that you show in the manual. You have already shown that it is possible. I use Logic X...

Even I understand the FP family has been designed for maximum details in Studio One family cooperation I would like to have the possibility to tweak all possible params like the Studio One (=Native) mode shall be able (according to manual) in the other modes (MCU, HUI, MIDI). And furthermore - because this applies to Studio One native users too I think - to have the possibility to fix the tweaked details permanent so they remain tweaked even you power cycle FP unit. Many thanx for that!

Definitely agree that the scribble strips should be more configurable.  At a minimum we should be able to freely select between the modes described in the manual (preferably without having to restart the fp).  As a studio one user, I am also not able to change the layout of these.  The sysex in the manual doesn't appear to do anything.  And from inside of studio one there is no way to send sysex anyway, so every (failed) test has had to be done with a thrift party product.

I agree to give the option to user select the options shown in the manual.  Unlock this and it will be a huge improvement to a great product!

This could had been the best DAW control in the world if the the scribble strips made any sense. I am looking at replacing my Faderport 16 all the time just because of this. You even mention in the manual that there is a way to do this but then nothing. Every firmware update I am hopping that you have solved this. How hard can it be???
