No other multiband that I can think of does this? Just wondering the logic.
The Push / Novation Launch Pad / Novation Launch Pad Pro / Novation Launch Key
/ Launch Control XL / Machine MkII / Machine Studio / BeatStep / Livid OhmRGB / Livid Code V2 / Apc 40 MKII

no computers or synths

The person who designed it is English.
It’s probably why Session view is vertical.
Multiband Dynamics bands are placed horizontally though :wink:

Space considerations?

Yeah probably because all lives devices have to cram into a matchbox so space and layout would have been the main consideration.

How I would love to have pop out options for Live devices that could open to a more usable size, might help me to actually use them more.
