Using simple math in value field

Post by lafoon » Sat Apr 17, 2021 7:20 pm

I think it would be great and useful to be able to write simple math when entering manual value. For exemple, you have a filter and you want to double the frequency to reach the upper octave, you could just write: "*2". Another exemple, you just want to remove 20% dry/wet so you type "*0.8" in the value field. This is a little feature that saves me a lot of time inside Resolume and think it would also benefit Ableton Live.
