I started wondering, whether it would be in any way possible to live update certain attributes of a phaser with an executor knob, or fader.
I imagine it like this: I would run a phaser on an exec fader, and be able to change for example its width or phase with the encoder above. A bit like the common MA2 effect generator, but attributes now assigned to the new encoders.
Right now I have two ideas about achieving this:
1. Try to get the encoder position somehow (assign a dimmer channel and use DMX remotes maybe?) and use that in a clever Lua script.
2. Create a long sequence with blank cues triggering commands that change and update the desired attribute. Assign that sequence to the encoder, and scroll through the cuestack.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this.
