The Zynthian User Interface is formed by 4 rotary encoders with switch and one TFT display.

==Official UI Guides==
The encoders/switches are used to navigate between the different screens/menus, select options and change the instrument parameters, acting as MIDI/OSC controllers.

Zynthian has 4 user interfaces that we have documented separately:
  
Currently there are two screen patterns:
+
1. '''[[Zynthian UI Users Guide]]''': The Hardware UI. '''<= You should start here!'''
  
- '''Selector Screen''': a list of items that you can scroll and select with the SELECT(4) encoder/switch
+
2. [[Configuration Users Guide]]: Web Configuration Tool.
- '''Controller Screen''': In the corners, 4 control widgets (one for each encoder/switch), with label and value indicator (graphic and numeric). In the middle, a list of controller maps to which you can change or rotate using the SELECT(4) encoder/switch.
+
  
And there are 3 types of clicks (push) action that can be realized on every switch:
+
3. [[MOD Users Guide|MOD-UI Users Guide]]: MOD Plugin-Host Web UI.
  
- '''short:''' less than 0.3 seconds
+
4. [[Command Line User Guide]]: If you need to manually setup/configure things.
- '''bold:''' between 0.3 and 2 seconds
+
- '''long:''' more than 2 seconds
+
  
Actions bond to every different switch and click type are context dependent. Generally, SELECT rotary and short click is used to navigate and select items in a "Selector Screen". From "Controller Screen", short click can be used to rotate between channels (CH) or between controller maps (SELECT). "Bold" clicks are intended as shortcuts for jumping to some specific screens. Clicking BACK generally jumps to the previous screen in the sequence. For a detailed description, see the next flowcharts:
