Encoder sensitivity
#1
I sometimes find it difficult to make fine adjustments to parameter values via the encoders. I seem to turn them just a little to far, or too fast and skip over the values that I'm trying to select. How about a global sensitivity / acceleration setting for the encoders so we can adjust the overall encoder "feel" to taste?

We have played with various sensitivity adjustments and I think where we ended up is tuning each parameter individually. We chose an incremental encoder with a high resolution so you would not have to turn multiple revolutions to get from end to end, but we probably could have used a lower res encoder as most parameters only go to MIDI lengths. I am sure we will revisit the sensitivity on the most touchy ones.

How about acceleration:
 slow turning => less changes 
faster turning => more change 
... I found the key parameters very sensitive:
- Clock division
- Pattern selection 
- Mod Destination

Good list for us to start with. The acceleration idea is also good, I think we considered that but it didn't make the cut.
