  1. Are there any reference grids that can be used so a player can see what notes they are about to play, or is it all just touchy feel as-you-go out of key stuff?

  2. Unlike a lot of X/Y controllers, this lets you define the specific frequency range you want. Just want bass? Not a problem, you can change it in the patch! I don’t think I conveyed just how crazy modular this is.

    The grid itself reflects the style of control you have defined. So a linear scale will have the grid spaced evenly, a logarithmic with the higher end spaced closer than the bottom, and then there is also a reverse button on everything to flip the poles.
