How to view looper track when being controlled by midi controller

Post by miclevine » Thu Jul 04, 2019 4:03 pm

Hi, I do live looping with a midi foot pedal, but it stresses me out that when I step on a pedal assigned to a looper (and another track without the looper is currently visible), I can't SEE if the looper was activated (maybe I mis-stepped, etc). Is there a way to set it so whenever an external controller is doing something, the view switches to that device? Thanks!

Map the Looper Title Bar to the same control as the big button.
