Thank You!

Greetings! Just purchase the Roland system 1m a Semi Modular Synth and have to say that that is very funny to to play!
I'm starting to create some experimental Psy-Trance music and the system 1m help me a lot creating cosmic ambients, build ups and drops from the LFO.
I just found some troubles in the LFO Rate which are no separate from bars, but at the same time is good to create more natural movement!
I like a lot the sound of the wave tables it sound very interesting!
Thanks a lot to help me in my mission on Earth!

For me a step back

I had wanted to my Sequentix Cirklon a sound source with as direct accessibility of all parameters over the front panel. System-1m seems to offer that. In addition, I have fascinated some Youtube videos, in which the system is integrated into a modular structure. Tests and evaluations also promise only good.
When "playing" on the device, but I was soon bothered that I can not see the set values. I had not imagined this to be so extreme, but you're still badly in the dark. In addition, there are only potentiators and faders. You turn or push a piece until something is done. If it was the wrong turn, then you do not know how it was set. No way back. To check if I'm only too stupid instead, I have my old Waldorf MicroQ reactivated and a bit "screwed". So it should be: A first turn at the button shows only once, where one is. Only when you continue to rotate, the parameter changes. The display is self-explanatory. As someone who is active in electronics development, I wonder why this is not the case today. In a fully analogous device I see the Potis still, but here the Potistände only one microcontroller interrogated and processed. It comes with encoders just as clearly. And the cost in shopping is only a few cents more than Potis.
Perhaps the sound of the system is 1m "analog" than the MicroQ, but that is not important to me. For me, the intuitive, fast operation counts. And I do not see the Roland device. This slows down the creative process.
Oh, yes, I've noticed that the VCA output level can be so high that the Hall effect is higher. Perhaps this is turned off with the systemupdate? I then no longer tried.
