3.7 Global Settings

The global settings affect all controls.

Encoder Speeds

You can set two different speeds for encoders. Speed A is the default speed of encoders. The B

speed is accessed by assigning one of the buttons on the TWEAKER as the enc speed shift. When

this shift button is held down, the encoders will respond with the speed set as B.

There are several possible speeds (or sensitivities) for the encoders. A low speed will mean the knob

takes more rotations to go from low to high value, a high speed mean it will take less rotation.

Settings Channel

The settings channel is a special receiving channel for the

TWEAKER that listens to MIDI CC values to change properties

of encoders and LED rings. For those familiar with other MIDI

controllers use of NRPNs, you will probably find this a more

convenient and useful method. Details of the settings channel

can be found below and in the Settings Channel Response Table


LED Ring Local Control

By default, if you turn an encoder on the TWEAKER, the LED

ring will indicate the value, without needing a MIDI message to

update the ring. This is usually desirable, but not always. If you

want full and exclusive remote control of the LED rings, you’ll

want to disable the LED ring local control.

Button Local Control

By default, button local control is disabled, and requires MIDI

input to illuminate LED’s. If you want a button’s LED to illuminate

when you press a button, you’ll want to turn this on. This is

particularly useful if you are working with software or hardware

that cannot provide MIDI feedback, and you want buttons to

light when pressed.


Omni mode is a standard MIDI mode for many devices that

receive MIDI input. If omni is on, then the TWEAKER will ignore
