First, the percent and semitone options are basically redundant anyway -
if you had steps as 1/10 semitone you offer a similar level of control
without needing the two separate options.

Nudge can be preserved by simply having a nudge screen that you can
enter after setting the things in the list, instead of having the
complex keymap of having so many things on one screen.

The wheel is nearly always up/down, but the fact that the quickscreen's
"down" is the Play/Pause button, rather than scroll down means the
visual layout of the screens matching causes greater confusion. The
screen needs to *look* different for the controls to make sense even
after you fix the basics. But left/right are available (and obvious -
the seek buttons).
