Post Tweaking knobs and faders with the mouse wheel

I think tweaking the knobs and faders of the instruments by mouse wheel instead of left click and drag would be a nice feature.

I wholeheartedly agree. Can we PLEASE have this feature! Of course it could be an option or possibly work with a modifier key (though I'd rather it work with only the mouse wheel when enabled as that would make it a one-handed operation).

At the very least, the mouse wheel should adjust parameters when the left button is held down on a knob or slider.

Total numpty doin' his own thing for the craic and relaxation - it's cheaper than a therapist, and more satisfying.

I would love this also! The scroll-wheel is underused. And keyboard entry of values also seems too simple not to have it, especially the combi programmer (copy and paste would be great for the combi too!).

I got tired of not having this feature, so I wrote my own little app to add it. It's called "WheelWork for Reason" and you can download it from My apologies to any Mac users, but it's a PC-only application.

this is a really good idea, BUT, only if it is a toggle-able function in the preferences. not being able to turn it off could cause infuriating issues for some users with certain types of mice. if you have a mouse with a touch-scroll, for example, and you happen to be over a control while making an errant swipe, you could throw something way off without even knowing it for some time.

You can use a hotkey to put WheelWork into suspend mode. I agree that if the feature were added to Reason it should be a toggleable option.

good deal. I'm on a Mac, so unfortunately I can't try out your nifty little app.
