knobs to visualy respond to the matrix

I would love to see the knobs in vc to respond to changes made via the matrix.

I've only started to use the matrix in my virus so I may of missed something.

I disagree, modulation matrix is the end of the of path for parameter route, not vice versa.

I might not have it right then, just starting to use it.

Just as an example, if i wanted to set my modulation wheel to adjust the filter cut off and reverb send, as i increase the modulation wheel I would like to see the filter cut off move. I use cubase but have just been shown FL and quite like how you link parameters to each other, adding a number,+,-,/ etc to control the ratio it will effect the other parameter. it's really cool that you see all these parameters moving.

I believed that this is what the matrix was. a controll to link lots of controls for great effect. I can't understand if i'm increase the filter cut off through the matrix why the filter cut off VC display doesn't actualy change.

Then basically knobs become useless, if they will be controlled my modulation matrix directly. Try to think of any plugin that employ this idea :) However Circle from Future Audio Workshop is quite good in visual representation of parameter values.

I wouldn't want the knob to move but an indicator around the knob to show the relativety of the parameter in relation to the positon of the knob, like in Kontakt.

I think an LED like indication (ie an arc of a bright colour) on the rim of the controller displaying the offset would be cool - but it might be messy to keep track of if you have LFOs linked to things at fast rates...

Yeah, thats what i was trying to describe LOL

I'm not getting this right..

If I use the matrix to change a parameter when i physicly look at the knob setting in VC I have no idea where it is now set. On the hardware to have knobs that move would be very expensive (nord have the solution) but on the sofware there is no reason for the knobs to not show the current position it's actualy at. I don't understand why they don't move to show there current setting wether they changed via controller change Data (like they do) or via data to change via the matrix.

unless your saying that the matrix takes it from a variation of where its currently set rather than just a full sweep of the pot. Then you would need 2 pointers for each knob, Current setting and matrix modified to here. That would be overkill I think. If it is just a full sweep of the pot then I would like to see the knobs move so I know where they are at after I've used the matrix to link them.

Just noticed the term off set so I'm guesing the matrix varies the parameter from it's current setting.
