Let’s discuss Sliders now. First of all I wanna tell you some simple facts.
Value is the actual value (10.000). Lo is the lowest value, Hi the highest value. Little tip: You don’t need to write the + in positive values, but it’s easier to see at first view, that a value is positive.
One Slider Module – Different Appearances And Functionalities
Inserting a Slider in your project, you get a vertical Slider(Vert) by default, but there is 11 different types of a slider with different appearances and also different functionalities. Right-click on the Slider and select Properties to see the different Sliders.
VERT & HORIZ version
Here we have the classic Sliders, for raising the value from lowest(bottom position) to highest(top position). The HORIZ Slider has not the functionality, you maybe know from mixer units. The HORIZ Slider is not ment to fade between sources. It’s just a horizontal design.
Single Module Knobs (Slider Variations) Against Custom Knob
The first 2 knobs in the picture are Slider variations and single modules(SMALL KNOB & KNOB version). The last knob(Knob) in picture (found in the Controls) is a creation out of other modules. This knob is marked with the grey symbol, because it is a container with modules in.
Maybe you ask yourself now: “Why the last Knob? There is two single modules I could use!”. The answer is easy: You could modify and customize the last knob, instead of just being able to enter a low and high value. Two more things to keep in mind: This knob has no Readout and the label must be changed via Text Entry3 -> Properties!
