OK. I was referring to the sound, but feedback on the GUI is fine, too.

No you can't currently skip the animation, but you can directly jump to
all the items available on the rear-panel via keyboard shortcuts.
Press '?' or click the button top left with a "?" for a list of
available keyboard shortcuts.

The speed (chorale/off/tremolo), yes, you can. Press 'm' to view current
midi CC assignments. Ctrl+middle-click (same as ardour) to re-bind.

Other Leslie parameters can currently only be bound to midi-CCs using a
text config file (see setBfree --help or `man setbfree`).

There's a subtle trick: ctrl+middle-click on the left control (separate
horn/drum, 8 possible steps) vs right lever (linked: 3 steps). The
On-Screen-Dipslays show that. Both are however currently fixed CC-value
maps (no foot-pedal-friendly toggle/cycle).

The help screen is terse but it is mentioned as "(Re) Assign Midi CC".
