    Default Are MF Twister encoders dented?

    Can't found information on this, are they dented?

    Thanks!

    Yup. You can configure it in the MF Utility software.

    There is no physical detent, only a larger region where the output will be set to middle value and the middle Led in the ring will change colour.

    It feels like a pretty good attempt at a detent, I prefer it in many ways to an actual physical one.

    Hope that helps.

    I've always thought that DETENTED means a series of clicks when you turn an ("clicky") encoder, and DENTED means the physical STOP at 12 'o' clock on a NON-DETENTED encoder (like on a mixers EQ).

    But - I HAVE been known to be wrong in the past, fellas...

    I've always used detent to refer to any points where it clicks into place. So EQ pots tend to have a centre detent and the NI encoders have 30 (I think).

    The Twister encoders can be set to mimic the centre detent only.

    Ok. Now it is more clear.

    Thanks!
