Default check knob parameter without changing parameter

is there any way to do this?

also: is there any way to temporarily make finer adjustments on the knobs?

like Maschine controllers hold shift/turn knob function.

thanks!

You can navigate to the parameter in the edit menus. Also, on the TI2 there's an led above the oscillator volume that illuminates when the knob hits the patches saved value.

and from the manual

Constant Offsets
The internal resolution of the parameters in the Virus sound engine is 24-bit, which theoretically allows for
approximately 16 million different values for each continuously variable parameter. The MIDI specification,
however, only allows for a resolution of 128 values per parameter.
Now, in most situations, a resolution of 128 values is plenty, as it still allows you to get “close enough for
government work”. There are occasions, however, when you might find you really want to tune a parameter
so precisely that the value you need is somewhere in between two of these 128 positions. This is why we
have introduced the ability to apply a constant offset to any continuous parameter via the Mod Matrix.

1% Constant
Use this to fine tune any continuous parameter by up to 1% of the available range. This will likely only be noticeable
when modulating parameters that affect pitch, including the cutoff frequency of a filter with very high
resonance.

10% Constant
Use this to fine tune any parameter by up to 10% of the available range. In situations when Offset 1% is too
subtle, try this instead.

on C there is a SYSTEM setting "KnobMode" called "SNAP" that allows you to see the value without changing it

Quote:
When you adjust a knob In Snap Mode, the original setting determines the value until the point where the movement of the knob passes beyond this position. In other words, the parameter does not jump to the value as in JUMP Mode. However, keep in mind that your adjustments have no effect on the parameter until the knob “snaps” on at the position equivalent to the original value.
The drawback is you have to look at the display when first changing a setting to see where you have to turn the knob so that it starts to register.

BTW arturia uses a technology that allows the beat step pro to know when you are touching a knob even without moving/turning it. It's so sensitive that sometimes you don't even need to touch it directly, just move close to the knob. It would be so useful if it was implemented in all newer synths.
