Check it out!

What? Where? Here is no link to further information.

The more you play around and check the interdependencies of the Controllers settings, the more you will realise how limited the CP controller concept is. Be sure, I checked it out!

[*Foot switches are fixedly wired (sustain), or can only be assigned globally. So you have to decide to assign SW2 to one parameter, and can only disable it in the life set with Receive SW-Parameter, but this only if you assigned Sustain, Soft or Sostenuto before. ]
[*FS2 not capable of half pedaling, why? I can not use more expressive Parameters, but the point is broken anyway for the above mentioned issue.]
[*Foot controllers are assignable to many parameters, but only one of them (expression) can be restricted via Receive SW. Why it is not possible to declare for each connected switch or controller to work on which section in which extent?]
[*Polarity of switches and controllers is fixedly wired, why? Sometimes I want wo switch a parameter on, sometimes I want to switch it off on pressing the pedal. This is more important by using half pedal with the Foot controller jacks, but also with the foot control units.]

Assigning any controller to any parameter should be done by simply move a knob or tab a switch from start to end position. This simple move should store assignment, limit low, limit high and polarity. Voice section On/Off switches should be considered to store on which section the controller should act. Base on robust global defaults this must be possible to store in a life set. This is what I would call intuitively.

Thank you, Dennis. I checked it out and Luke's Videos are really informative and nicely done. But this takes nothing from my post away, because the controller setup is cut. Even though I have plugged a set of four Yamaha controllers, I can not do simple things like blending one sound into another (morphing), or control two effects simultaneously (may be in one section, may be in two different sections). I can not change polarity or direction of a control, so often I be forced to make "invers" move with the feet. Switch is fixedly wired, the other can only be assigned globally. Big shortcomings for a "life", "expressive", "Stage" instrument, which are be better addressed by the competition. I think some of them can be fixed with less effort in a OS update.
