Programming array wattage is cumbersome

Post by Mike Curran »

I'm setting up a new profile for my new VFXR's and the starting point on the Mate 3 is 1000 watts. Is there a shortcut to raise this quickly? Each rotation of the Mate3 scroll wheel only takes me up 10 watts, I'll be here forever unless I can figure a way to couple my cordless drill to the scroll wheel :grin: PS forgot how I did this last time, maybe that's why my fingerprints are al, worn off.

the only way to do it with drill is to give up a finger. Maybe a toe will work too.

Though my friend who bought my old system did some button mashing on the 3s scroll wheel/action button that made scrolling 20X faster. He doesn't know what.
