Clear Track Parms or Clear This Bank in pad settings in a MIDI Bank breaks UI.
The Enter button lights up and the unit becomes unresponsive. The pad settings window is changed to pad settings of pad 1 on a current midi bank. Pressing enter makes it possible to resume operation. See picture for clarification (pad 8 was the one being cleared):
If Enter needs to be pressed to continue, I would expect there to be a prompt saying that track/bank parms have been cleared with a large OK! at the bottom hinting the user that the button needs to be pressed. This is exactly how it can be found in other places all around the unit.
I would also expect the current pad settings pad to remain the same instead of the page being changed to pad settings of pad1.
This is a dangerous assumption which may mislead the development team. It’s not up to us to decide the relevance. Someone decided that my issue was related to some other issue that was fixed so my ticket got closed too which I had to reopen again.
What you are referring to has never happened to me. All pads work for me all right and their pad settings restore on reboot. (Except for the already broken settings for a pad in the issue that you are referring to).
If you can repro that issue, can you please write how to do it in that topic? I cannot, for the life of me, figure it out. It would really help!
And you are right, the bug is not related, since a reboot resets everything (even when the project is saved). It is a consequence of the confusing state the machine gets in. The UI is not redrawn, while in the background the standard behaviour of the buttons continue to activate functionality. So this will never be a problem once the bug you mentioned will be fixed.
(If you follow the same on E7, you’ll notice what really happens in my use case)
My steps are outlined in the original post. I am not creating/saving a new blank project.
Could you explain why we need to press enter twice and exit twice? I only need to press it once for the unit to become responsive again. After that the UI changes the pad settings page to the first pad on the current bank. It’s also visible on the screenshot that I attached. So by pressing enter again, since you are in pad settings for pad 1, you are clearing params for that pad too! Hence you have two tracks that are cleared!
In my case, it only appears to clear params for a specified track. I enabled all of MIDI banks too. Pads on banks G and H are off for me by default, so they don’t have any color assigned to them.
