  • Screensaver

    Would it be possible to have a timer that allows the screen to go dark after a set time? I like to leave my studio running and I worry about screen burn?

    I second this. Was about to suggest the same thing. This really needs a auto-off feature. Sleep mode, where the screens turns off if there is no signal or clock coming in for a certain amount of time.

      Third this. I've gotten some minor burn in and would love to keep my bitbox in good condition without having to turn off all the time.

      Nerdseq has a nice screensave that just cycles a few colors

      Even a "Sleep Button" that kicked to a dark screen in the tools would be cool.
      Undo would be to press "Tools"

        Nice idea! First go to lowest brightness and then turn the screen of.

        I don't think it needs a menu entry, a simple textfile/config-file on the sd card with the times for low birghness and sreen of would do it.

          that's an interesting idea - brightness from "off" to 0-100. I could get behind that.
          Still, I'm a fan of the built in timer (even w/o configurability). Sometimes I get up from the desk, and I think I'm coming right back, but then, well, you know - I don't get to come back.

        I would like the screen saver to be a video game. Have I mentioned that I’d like it to have some video games?

        I would also like to have a screensaver but still the ability to play the sounds in the bb with a controller without the screen turns on. I really would like it to have some text floating around or some cool graphic not only a black screen.

          Bumping this thread. I've got a brand new Blackbox and it's already starting to show slight screen burn. This really needs to be added.

            This should be a no brainer, especially if this screen is capable of burn in

                At least timer to black screen would be great.

                  This was honestly the first suggestion I thought of when I got the device but thought it was so obvious / simple that I must have been missing something. Anyways, glad to see there is a thread about it. +1

                    The screen on the Elektron Digitakt turns itself off after prolonged inactivity. It’s documented. Probably less critical for that screen than here on the Blackbox.

                    The Digitakt features a screen saver that dims the screen after 5 minutes of inactivity and turns off the screen after 60 minutes. Press any key or move any controller to wake up the screen.
                    yes, let’s have this.
