NOTE: This thread is about the drop down menu, not the panel itself where all the modulation list is.
I've always found the modulation panel very confusing. On the left side it says "Targets", but when you click it it first shows you the modulator, not the target and then you have duplicated information, because if the Filter CutOff is being modulated by both the LFO and the MSEG, then it will show Filter CutOff on both LFO and MSEG menus. To me, that's a bit useless, because then why do we need the Show Targets button on the right?
Here's what it looks like now:
Why having the modulator first? If we want to see what a modulator is controlling, we can just click the corresponding tab (for example the LFO) and then click Show targets. That itself is already a good way to create organized sections.
My approach would be to keep the Show Targets on the right where we can see what that particular modulator is affecting. I would only sort them alphabetically
Then on the left we would see the list of all parameters being modulated (the real Targets) and inside each target we would see the individual modulators, but also an "ALL MODULATION" option which would be the same as clicking the knob/fader. I think that clicking a knob/fader can be useful sometimes, but when you are seeing another panel, it's a bit of a waste of time clicking other tabs to go back to the parameter's panel. So here's my idea (I would sort them alphabetically though):
What do you guys think?
