How to activate (focus) the Next/Previous Track
« on: May 16, 2020, 12:07:34 AM »
I want to program two buttons of my MIDI controller to navigate through my tracks. So what I am searching is a way to Activate/Focus the Next/Previous Track. I didn't find a specific Command or Function. So far, I've used Keyboard Down/Up, but the track pane must be focused. I tried Command 'Move Input Focus to Track Pane', but it didn't work. Any ideas?

"Strip" "Track" "<Current>" "+1" (for next, "-1" for previous)
"Function" "Select strip"

If you want it works for buses as well, whatever is in focus, it is a bit more complicated (you will need a monitor to retrieve current pane...).

'Move Input Focus...' is to change between buses and tracks (buggy on Cakewalk side, let me know if you need that so I can describe workaround).

Thak you, it works perfectly with only one strange behavior, surely not related with your answer. I will ask for it in Hermu's Novation Impulse preset thread, since this is the preset I am tweaking.
