You’ll want to trim those names quite a bit - while there’s no limit to the CC or note name length in the file, the Pyramid only shows the first 8 characters of CC names and with note names, only the first 4 characters. For example CC’s 12 and 13 would show up as “EXTERNAL” on the device. Note names are tough because of the length limit.

Yes definitely. I just went with the data sheet labels to see how they would look ok the pyramid. They get truncated but usually you can tell what parameter it is. Great thing is that you can rename them however you want

Note numbers for accent reverb and delay triggers. Although implementation can be a bit tricky…

Here’s all of the above merged and shortened for better readability on the Pyramid:
