    It seems a little tone-deaf ;)

    Yes, hopefully this will be changed soon. But please understand that this is a company-wide discussion as the term 'master' is used in a lot of our instruments.

    So no ETA on this, but expect this change to be coming! :)

    Seriously? NI going woke?
    This politically correctness is getting way out of control. Pretty soon someone will find the black keys on their keyboard racist and they will be replaced by orange or green keys :mad:

    The problem is that whatever you do or say, someone will always feel offended. This will never end.

    Imagine having a problem with our changing language usage, as we become more aware of the negative connotations of our language.

    It must be a scary world for those who see this as some slippery slope on the way to tyranny, with all these ethical changes all of the time. Next thing you know, you won't even be able to make racist jokes without people getting angry at you. <gasp>
