Description

Currently, when you change the value of the gain or mix knobs in an audio module, the value of that parameter as you change it is displayed in the top-part of the module where the module name would normally be displayed.

So what if...

when your mouse hovered over whatever various UI widgets are in your module, the @description text for the parameters/messages/etc was displayed in that area. I like this better than hints (see previous email) and I like it better than using the Clue window or another module because the text is still displayed reasonably close to where the mouse is. Some @description text is quite long, so we would probably truncate to the first sentence, which would be subject to Twitter-like limitations.
