no, but you could implement a m4l router type app, that sits in between individual apps and the push, and allows you to bank between them. The monome pages app is also being enhanced to work with all grid controllers, so this would be another way of 'banking' the user mode.

true, but that is for actually loading in a new instrument (which i wouldnt want to be doing live anyway). Its very fast toggling between tracks though, so having multiple tracks with different instruments in place would be a lot smoother.

you dont need to use user mode for this, you can just map an instrument rack macro to the chain selector.

not with sampler, as i understand it, but this is possible with a device observer set to watch drum rack slots...

again, not with sampler, but with drum racks yes. I tend to use sampler for pitched instruments, and drum racks for one shots, so this works well enough for me, ymmv.
