Some time ago I was intrigued by a post about the possibility of highlighting the status of the Leslie on the monitor.
@UK had posed the question because during a concert could happen to not know if the leslie was in Slow or Fast, because sometimes the sound monitoring on stage is far from optimal.
Torsten came to his rescue and suggested creating a binding inside the organ rack that would react to the status of the leslie speed parameter in the plug in and send CC127 messages to the onscreen keyboard. Then, to display the leslie status in real time he set up a button in the controller bar, whose display formula was basically this:
$(cc(127) == 127 ? “Fast” : (cc(127) == 64 ? “Stop” : “Slow”))
As I said at the beginning, this intrigued me considerably.
So I thought of something different, such as squares with different colors instead of writing, one for each state, to make everything more “visual” easy to understand.
To do all this I asked for help to the genius of the lamp, a guy who answers to the name of Dave_Dore …
He helped me by explaining how to intervene for a correct formulation of what I was proposing.
It came out nice and very intuitive.
Being a curious guy I thought of something even nicer and different from the usual: emoji.
Clearly there are no emoji that symbolize a Half Moon, so why not try to create them?
Obviously I’m not capable, otherwise I would not even write this post!
So I ask for help here in the Forum, if someone knows how to create emoji that can, even sympathetically, symbolize the Half Moon to be inserted in the Bar Controller instead of or together with the words Slow, Brake and Fast.
Here below, how I set up with Dave a button dedicated to Leslie states in the bar controller.
