Rotary Controls for Session Box Navigation

Hey. I'm pretty new in here and already a professional ;) Right now it seem s to me that I have to give up four buttons for the up, down, left, right navigation of a session box. But instead I would rather use one single rotary encoders. I'm building a mapping for my Vestax VCI400 DJ Controller right now which has plenty of rotary encoders. I checked my Midi Monitor and it gives me a CC Value 1 when I move it right and a 127 when I move left. (These are "clicky" they click on each single move) Is there a way to assign these? Otherwise that's going in the category of feature requests;)

Hey, Well done for becoming a Pro so quickly! :) Indeed, session box navigation controls currently only support buttons for up/down/left/right. If you would like to use rotary encoders, this isn't possible in Remotify at the moment. However, if you're feeling upto it, we do have a step by step pdf guide you can use to add this into your script. Just fire over an email and I will send it to you. Thanks John

Hey John,
great work you're doing !

I have the same request. I'd like to use a rotary encoder for track selection and understood that this currently cannot be achieved using the app. It would be grat if you can send share the pdf you mentioned.

This is possible with Bome MT. It allows you to translate midi value in to a midi note and a whole a lot more.
It's not what you Guys are requesting here but still an option :)
