I "2nd" this suggestion for ALL rigs!!! What would also be helpful is a keyboard shortcut/Macro for a quick TOGGLE between 2 different increments set in an .ini or .cfg file.

FYI, I set up a special Macro-type dual emulate the two Shift keys, and can tune the rig with my feet if desired. It is VERY cool (IMHO). With practice you can control the sensitivity of the shift "increment", but still would like to see a dual-increment toggle setting available as a modification to your suggestion.
