finger release sensitivity

July 9, 2013 | 5:32 am

nobody’s doubting this isn’t a great achievement, but I’d like to second a comment I read regarding the sensitivity to *change* on finger release – it is potentially unusable in certain reasonable contexts. It just seems unduly sensitive to value variation when lifting your finger off of a slider for example (with the best will I can scarcely stop it changing the value i have slid to)

There may be good reason to strive for accuracy, but ‘feel’ is as important as repeatability/predictability, at the very least you should explore having a user sensitivity adjustment to help iron this out

@avantronica Thanks for the feedback! So you know, I’m aware of the issue, especially for sliders and dials. It’s right at the top of the list of issues to be sorted out for the next version. So by the time we roll out 1.0.8 (or whatever we call it) interacting with sliders should feel much more reliable.

One option that would be cool to see for these kinds of objects is something that enables typing in of precise values in Mira (similar to clicking a numbox and punching in values on a the computer keyboard’s numpad).

i.e.
If a numbox is displaying floats/ints allow it to show a popup number pad when its tapped (or tapped and held… maybe the desired behavior is specified by an attribute on the numbox).

If its displaying MIDI notes… voila… pop-up keyboard interface.
