Honestly, I’m thinking something like how Pigments does it would be better than mapping a key command to last modulator tweeked. I don’t want to request how Pigments does it exactly with the ring part but I do want to stick to my original idea with control.
I think in modulation mapping mode, it eliminates the confusion with what you can and can’t do because it’s straight forward. Everyone knows that when you press the mod arrow, the buttons light up blue or green. So if Bitwig just implements a ctrl shortcut to bypass it while in modulation mapping mode to edit parameters, it’s a system wide implementation that works the same everywhere. There is no ambiguity with “this was the last one tweeked” or whatever.
So simply put, if you hold control while in modulation map mode, it will unhighlight the buttons. When you let go of ctrl, it will go back to map mode with the buttons highlighted. Let me guys know if you think this is a simple, good solution?
I’ve actually been entrenched using the grid so I haven’t really cared to check this out recently. I’d also like to thank Lokanchung again for that escape tip. Also, after I can right click the knob and choose the modulation I want so this has sped up my flow tremendously.
