How Do I Setup Pads to Act as a Navigation Grid

Hello,

I'm loving CSS so far! I have a question about session navigation. I've got a launchpad and I want to setup a mode where every pad is a specific group of tracks.

For example:
Each column of pads represents a specific group of eight tracks. Say, I press a pad in column 1. It will move to the group of eight tracks associated with that column and the row will determine which scene the box starts at.

Another example:
I press pad 1 the red box moves to tracks 1-8 / scene 1-8. I press the pad right of pad 1 the red box moves to tracks 9-16 / scene 1-8. If press the pad below pad 1 and the red box moves to tracks 1-8 / scene 9-16. I press the box diagonally it moves to tracks 9-16 / scene 9-16.

Any help on setting this up will be appreciated!

P.S. I've got the basics of session box navigation down. Meaning, I can setup a redbox and make it move up, down, left, and right by a specific number.

Hey,

To this you would just need to add 2 'Session box navigation' buttons and assign them to the same button on your launchpad.
1 will move the box to a specific track and the other to move it to a specific scene.
In my attached screenshot, you can see an example of a Session Box Navigation mapping that will move the box to scene 9 when the button is pressed on my controller.
Note that the 'Navigate' option is set to 'scenes' and the option below is set to 'select track/scene number'

Hope this helps :)

Success! I was able to setup my 8x8 grid navigation. Now, I'm gonna put that bad boy in shift mode on my session button :-)
