2022-03-01 (W) EWC_Box Serial control and feedback

The "soft controls" on each screen relate to the color-coded knobs and will need a label depending on the mode. The first mode I want to make is a rudimentary example that outputs pseudo-random notes at regular intervals. I printed each label in white and then tried them with matching colors, and I liked the more colorful version best. I will add modes as necessary, but I programmed the first round with three. The first showed the variables I would use for generating music, the second had "X" for all the labels to act as a template, and the last was a blank error page.

I opened an older EWC project and brought over some code for dealing with serial input, which is helpful for debugging. A key feature is the help screen which displays a list of available commands. One of my favorites is the verbose feedback bit which will print or withhold data I may not want to see during regular operation. I added the screen, which shows potentiometer and encoder levels.
