In the Little Phatty's Midi Setup menu, regarding sending CC's: As well as "WHEELS", can we possibly have options for just the pitch wheel and just the mod wheel? If this is possible, it would add some more flexibility - especially controlling a poly chain.

Uh, it would be totally awesome to map a CV input to any parameter!!! Just like on Minitaur.
I really want to save LFO for filter mod, but I love PW mod and PW mod is something that needs just triangle LFO in mostly constant rate... I just want to say that would be great to control PW (uh sorry, Wave Shape) with CV in. And if you could control other parameters like resonance and LFO speed, that would be major upgrade in modular fashion!

Another thing I would love to do is:

Turning the resonance up and in the same time Volume up.
Turning O.L. up and volume down.
Controlling filter cutoff with mod wheel and adding modulation. - this is useful if you want to have filtered bass sound and when adding LFO to cutoff, you control the offset of LFO or you can say Cutoff frequency :wink:
this would be awesome if you could save (per preset) range of control and direction (+/-) of control.

ARP with/without retrigger option when using MIDI clock.

Sorry, with the second idea I meant pot mapping, so you control two parameters with one pot at the same time.

For Sub Phatty: a ring modulator.

Seconded. Amos! This would be the ultimate upgrade for the Phatties.

Also, the ability to switch CV ins on the Slim to CV outs, but I don't know if that is feasible.

+1 for this on the Sub Phatty, too. I rarely use the Volume CV in, so if it could be reassigned that would be pretty amazing.

Just thought of a huge one! Not sure if it is possible. Inspired by the sub phatty,

I'd love a front panel shift mode for the menu parameters for the stage and slim!

I hate relying so much on the push encoder, but the real advantage is after a bit of work all could be memorized. Button to select the menu parameter, knob in that section to adjust the value.

Menu parameters I'd like to see on a shift mode front panel
Filter pole
Legato
Glide
Clock source
ARP advanced preset menu parameters

I know there are some I am forgetting. I have been away from my LP for a couple of months, while in the middle of a renovation & move.

Also, the manual could use a rewrite with the major changes that have occurred over the years.

Doh't. I'd didn't just think about it. I read it last month.

I'm sure that I mentioned this somewhere but any way...
I wish I could turn ARP off and still holding the last note.
When you do that, ARP off command sends note off or something like that.
This is very frustrating for me.
I need to re press that last note if I want it to sound, and sometimes it is really hard to synchronize this two actions. I don't want to have a gap between this to actions.
What I like to do is one shot ARP in really fast time division up ward, but it would be much easier without note off when ARP is disengaged.
And another thing I also recommend is steady ARP with MIDI clock without offset, so you can hit note out of beat, but ARP stays in groove. Otherwise you really need to focus to play first note tight in sync and than you need to play legato if you want it to sound musical and in tempo.
