A setting to dim all leds to comfy max brightness
« on: November 11, 2021, 11:44:14 am »
If having fully lit room it is fine as is, but otherwise it blinds me what text is below the led on panel.

I have a spotlight in one end, and there it is fine on left side but middle and to the right a problem to read what text under lit led.

I usually have to put finger over led to read the text under it.

Thinking a general, or some steps to select how bright you need max lit have to be.
Since regulated pulse a lot on LFO and such should not be a problem I think as a global setting.

+1 for LED dimming

The intensity of the LED's makes some texts really hard to see, in a dimly lit room.


It would not improve on the beautiful looks of the PB, if I had to put some semi transparent tape over the leds.

A reply from Arturia would be nice.

How should we know if these feature requests are ever read by Arturia?

...

That' how I do it.
I have an old red spot foil left over - covering up the LED does not help. So I assume dimming does it not...
The finger reflects the light onto the symbols/text - it is better.

I sent in  a "support request" for this issue.

and 2 more explanatory emails. because support is not really good at "comprehensive reading" (I don't know why I printed this in small size because Arturia is not reading this anyway.)


After a very frustrating email conversation, it ended in "Computer Says NO!".


The status LEDs ar probably not on PWM outputs, but just on digital outputs of the processor, so a firmware update cannot help us.

DIY MODE:

If you want to dim the LED's, use an EDDING 400 Black.
I tried an EDDING 751 Black, but that was too much, this is not transparent at all.

The Black 400 dims quit a bit, to an exaptable level.
I'm not completely satisfied with the results of an Edding 400 black, it gives the right amount of dimming, but the coverage could be more equal over the entire surface of a led.
Maybe a semi transparant or gray 751 would work.


If anyone has a better suggestion, please post it.


P.S.
Q-tips and alcohol allow for some experimentation....

"Q-tips and alcohol allow for some experimentation...." Alcohol ok, but what should I do with the Q-tips while drinking :-)
