You need to do that when you make the knobs. Start at -36, finish at +36. Assign each frame a number , so you will have several frames with the same numbers.
If the image doesn't represent the actual value it's pointless having it.
I understand what you and Techsonic are saying, but Dune because of the way it's designed, won't allow you to define what section of the interface is to be unique (or in this case the specific knob type to follow a specific function).
The 'Knob Big' graphic is allocated to Cutoff, and Resonance, whilst the 'Knob Middle' is allocated to multiple panels which includes the ADSR control, Filter Envelopes, Unison, Master, Env Amount, the knobs in the effects section in addition to the oscillators. If I change the digital values to accommodate a start of minus 36 and plus 36 then every other section will be wrong as they start at 0 percent and end at 100%, or in this case 0 to 188 in it's digital equivalent.
The intermediate ( digital display ) value is 94 when you double-click to reset the semitones of the oscillators, which is then at the zero value position. Detune and Spread knobs are based on percentages in the same area.
If you look at the standard knobs on any of the GUI's supplied, the semi-tone dial at zero, are half lit on the left side, rather than being unlit and only illuminated when rotated left or right of the central position.
In that sense, one can say that the way the knobs Synapse provide are illuminated in a way that don't represent actual bi-polar functionality and that's simply because of the design of the synth which relies on the popup value display.
The alternative is to sacrifice all the other digital displays because of just one aspect doesn't follow precise conventions. If you understand the relationship of what the digital values mean, then it's not that difficult.
The popup value display is matched to the digital display which is an approximation of the position based on the number knobs. With there being 188 knobs and 72 semitones, there is some overlap. In that sense, there is some free running movement of the values.
There is going to be some compromise, it just depends on which side you fall on. One could just have the Filter 1 and Filter 2 Cutoff and Res as digital readouts and knobs elsewhere, but it's not as much fun. It's easy to switch to those if one wanted to.
Maybe Richard of Synapse can offer a solution to this...
