Gonna try to approximate this very cool EQ used by Decca in the Sofiensaal from Gotterdammerung on:

Anybody have a cool rotating text module I can use on the knobs?

Pretty exciting to think I can use this vintage Decca EQ concept on my own Classical recordings!

No, not curved text, but text on a knob that rotates with the knob (see pic).

Text rotation is not part of GDI+ and therefore not available in Flowstone. You could painfully draw the text into a bitmap and rotate that one with the knob, but that would be way to much work for this small effect.
Instead build a graphic containg the text for rotation and rotate it in Knobman.

That's a good example of the bitmap rotation I talked about. Rotation is more expensive CPU wise than just drawing a bitmap, but this shows very well, how it's done!

It was on my To do list but you beat me to it! It’s what I had in mind.

Well done that man!

Thanks.
It's also a little heavy with triggers expenses. But as long as the plugin is simple and lightwieght, it shouldn't be a problem.

Unfair match because I've already needed something like that before, so it was lying in my toolbox.. ;)

I'll do two versions of the EQ, with and without the rotating text; will be interesting to see what the diff will be in CPU load.
