4 buttons to control only when track selected?

December 20, 2013 | 3:07 pm

I know I can do this but Im not sure the best way to do it. I have 8 tracks each with a looper. I was looking for a 4×8 grid of buttons so I could control all of their states but I realize that I only seem to control them when Ive selected that particular track. So 4 buttons mapped to all but only active on the track Im currently on should do it.

Advice?

Im already using macros for other stuff.

If I understand you correctly, something like this should work. There are surely various others ways; this is just the first that came to mind. (If you want to recall the state of each track’s four buttons each time you select a track, you’d need to store the states of each track’s settings somewhere and get them each time a new track number is selected.)

Or this solution, using bpatcher. (Subpatcher file is embedded, and also attached to this post.)
