8 Knobs..
 
..or more on the Combinator. I know it has been asked for for years and PH will add it, but I think it is an important step and needed sooner rather than later.
The more modular Reason gets with poly RE devices and envelope generators etc the more need for knobs.
In my case I really just need 8 to be able to assign ADSR's (one knob per stage) separately to filters and amp envelopes using Distributor-based poly synths and separate external filters like the AF-4 per voice, but the more the merrier.

New combi with new programmer and 8-16 buttons, 8-16 knobs, many cv in and outs is very very wanted.
With copy/paste function for modulation routing for each devices, of course.

YES YES YES. 16 knobs are to many but 8 yes.

8 knobs sounds good. Please give out CV-Out on Combinators as well :-)

To many now but not enough tomorrow. :)

Why not just have "N" knobs. Rows of 8 that are 1 RU high, and you can just create more as needed and the device grows larger. No limits. :D

Exactly :)

I agree wholeheartedly with this. No predefined number of combinator controls will ever be enough, so the interface itself must be modular in design, featuring as few or as many rotaries, buttons, & CV inputs as the user needs.

Furthermore, it is imperative (in my opinion) that this same principle be applied also to the programmer, as I personally tend to run out of assignment slots per device far more often than I find myself in need of additional knobs.

A Combinator toolbox would be great so one can make Combis with the desired amount of rotaries, buttons and programmer slots. Sometimes you need 5 rotaries but only 1 button. It would also visually improve Combinators if there were no unused controls.

If the Props dis this it would be fantastic!
