(1) The sliders for adjusting scan speed, blanking, etc are hard to set with the mouse. It would be helpful if you could also move them with the arrow keys once you select them, for fine tuning. Also, it seems excessive to have the sliders go to 50 for blanking. A smaller range might make them easier to adjust.
(2) Since the Moncha is designed for the hobby level, it might be nice to add an option for scanners with only 2 lasers. A lot of hobby people have red and green lasers in their scanners but not blue. I would suggest an option that allows mapping blue to some Red/Green value. I know that it would make the colors come out weird but at least it would draw the complete picture with more than one color.
Hello, as there are some suggestions here i'd add mine although i don't know if it's unrealistic. Is there a possibility to create some plugin for analyzing the input music and drawing appropriate VU meter o osciloscope? Something you can see in Winamp in the small window under the time information.
Right now we don't plan to implement this feature. The reason is, it is not so amazing to be honest. More important is "sound-to-light", where Moncha/Fiesta would be able to switch the effects to the music. We'll see if this will be possible.
Is there any shortcut like F1-F10 for banks or letters to switch effects but for resetting the speed of animation? My point is sometimes in the music there are these epic parts before beat where there is some breakdown, then some melody appears and after that the beats start to graduate up to some point where it stops for a while and then normal beat continues. Usually this graduation is followed by faster and faster beat or hihats and volume increase - that's the point where i'm sliding the animation speed up until the point where the regular beat starts but then i have to quickly switch animation and slide the speed down to certain level that fits to the beat. With some shortcut that will reset this it will be a lot easier and quicker. I would just press the desired effect and something like Ctrl+R or anything to reset the speed. I know Moncha isn't targeted for live shows but until i get money for Fiesta i have to do some shows with Moncha to earn them.
