2021-12-21 (Tu) EWC_Panel Instrument names on screen

I was worried about relying solely on the MIDI clock commands, but the LED column scrolling looked flawless. The timing may not be perfect, but being off by one millisecond every second is acceptable. I moved onto the OLED screen because I wanted to display instrument names there. In my mind, I showed the selected instrument names in large letters, while above and below, there were smaller versions of the next and previous selections. Pressing the instrument increment and decrement buttons would scroll through them. I tried displaying names from my string array, but I immediately ran into trouble for a handful of reasons:

  1. The instrument values start at thirty-seven, but the name array starts at zero.
  2. My list was incomplete. I shored up the list and found I was calling a different array incorrectly. When I calculated the next and previous instruments, I had to add exceptions for the beginning and end of the list, so I didn't try to access unrelated data registers.
  3. I instantiated all the tracks with the same instrument, "Crash Cymbal 2," the selection right in the middle at note fifty-seven.
