I've always wanted a quick menu for configs, the other one was so deep in
the main menu. This one sounds good. Sorry for my asking, but I am unsure of
where the "context menu" is. Is this the Main Menu accessed by pressing F1
on a FM Recorder, or is it the ID3 Info accessed from the WPS? Or am I just
an idiot and have no clue where it is? If you could tell me, thanks! The
patch sounds great though, as long as it is easily accessible. I would have
made a patch like that a while ago if I knew C a little better. I am just
starting out...
