As documented here:
I would not mind some feedback on this issue. Why did the change to DSP emphasize (and in the above case replace the text entry) sliders?
Last night I am using a touch tablet to control Roon like I often do and I want to change the leve (db) of an EQ setting. I click on DSP, I click on the band I want and then my thumb accidently touches a part of the screen - in this case I don’t even think it was on the Roon app itself (could be wrong). Whamo! My band gets shifted completely, a high shelf around 9000 hz down to 125 or so, instantly. If this had been gain and in the opposite direction my ears and/or my equipment could have been damaged.
Sliders are good for crude, inexact changes to things for which rough is “ok”. DSP is not like that…
It happened to me too. The Roon team is aware and maybe they will consider a change.
I was not aware the Roon team is aware. What makes you say that?
They are aware because they read the feedback on the forum, I also had sent them PM and it was acknowledged. They are thinking about improving 1.6 in a number of areas. Roon 1.6 had many new features, most of them are great (I am addicted to Roon Radio now), but some have to be polished/fixed based on users feedback. This is normal process. I am quite sure we’ll get a better PEQ at some stage.
By the way I agree with your statement "Sliders are good for crude, inexact changes to things for which rough is “ok”. DSP is not like that…"!
