I'm getting ready to use the OWL onstage next week for the first time, in a crowded venue, and something keeps happening that a) makes me wonder if it's happening to everyone else and b) makes me wonder if there's a way to avoid it.
So I'm changing OWL presets onstage, a finicky but manageable skill at best. Invariably, at least once per rehearsal, no matter what preset I'm trying to change to, I end up inadvertently landing on the XFM Oscillator, which no one within hearing distance is happy about. I never accidentally land on any other patch. If I'm thinking of the XFM Oscillator as being located in C8, "the last LED at the end of patch bank C", and I load the user presets I require into E5 E6, and E7 so as to never accidentally land on C8, it doesn't matter, it still happens.
Thus: has anyone else reported this? Is my OWL f*cked up? Is anyone using the XFM Oscillator in practical performance situations? No disrespect to @hibrasil, I love all of your patches! And I will certainly use the XFM Oscillator on purpose someday, but...I do wonder if the extremely valuable preset real estate might be slightly better served by a different patch, or at least one where if you accidentally land on it it doesn't completely change the tenor of your gig.
