Great Yes, cheat codes would definitely be one of the interesting ones!
I guess the main thing I’m planning to find out is, whether by pure accident or luck, there’s eg. a set of 8 or 10 “significant steps” that people use, that absolutely need to be coded with different intensities or colors for the grid UI to make sense. So I could sort of, quantize 16 step varibright serial output from Norns to a rougher display scale, just for the sake of trying something out, and still being able to make sense of the output.
(Sorry for being somewhat vague, it’s a silly and probably not super interesting idea that came to my mind the other day…)
