Default TCP FXPARM images

Hi again Peeps

More questions about theme images.

This time I left wondering if anyone uses FX Parameters in the TCP.

I know we can view envelopes, and they can of course be set to control various parameters, so my guess is that we don't even need the various TCP FXPARM images.

In the default V5 theme there are nine images:-

tcp_fxparm_arrows
tcp_fxparm_arrows_lr
tcp_fxparm_arrows_ud
tcp_fxparm_bg
tcp_fxparm_byp
tcp_fxparm_empty
tcp_fxparm_knob_stack
tcp_fxparm_norm
tcp_fxparm_off

And in the default V6 theme there are four images:-

tcp_fxparm_arrows_lr
tcp_fxparm_arrows_ud
tcp_fxparm_bg
tcp_fxparm_byp


The strange thing about the V6 theme is that is has a tcp_fxparm_byp image but not the tcp_fxparm_norm or tcp_fxparm_off images, and it begs the question, why would you need the bypass version of an image if you don't have the normal and empty versions?


Looks to me like the FX Parm buttons for the TCP are no longer a thing, and I searched the whole of the V5 user guide for "fx par" and of the 97 instances found, none of them appertained to FX parameters in the TCP.

I think FXParms on the TCP look like horrid clutter, but love em on the MCP.

Anyways, I'm probably mistaken but I think the confusion arises from the fact that you can use knobstacks (a series of images) for detailed knobs and fully controlling end result in any state, or a single image, which is handled in a generic way for the different states.

There probably was a move toward simplification in WALTER, but the old ways are almost always maintained for backwards compat.

Thanks for your insights Mr WyyyrdBryyyngr

I have since deleted those files from my theme as I will never be using them or making my theme public.

I just want to get rid of as much dross as possible...
