2022-01-12 (W) EWC_Panel Raw numbers on the screen

I tried to write the instrument name to the screen and my serial line, but this turned out to be a big problem. I stored the name of every MIDI instrument, and I don't want to waste precious processor memory when the slower but abundant EEPROM should work fine. I used this once for a different version of my electronic windchimes, and it still runs, but I mostly got grief this time. I am considering installing an SD card on each instrument, which would make it easier to store and recall melodies. When I pulled data from the non-volatile memory, it always carried out an extra bit, and that overflow wreaked havoc on the code governing the OLED screen. Every time I got something working, the following change might break it. After the buffer, I created a new array, which held for a bit but broke if I printed something to the screen afterward. I converted to printing from EEPROM, and the problem disappeared for a bit. I decided to leave the situation alone for now. The program will skip channel nine whenever I increment or decrement, so I don't transmit on the percussion line. Despite the printing issues, I arranged an initial screen.
