Shift State Session Navigation in Mixer and Meter Modes
One has to switch to session mode and press shift to move the mixer and meter mode grid over by 8 tracks and then back to Meter or Mixer mode.
Since work is done in Mixer & Meter mode in groups of eight, maybe the arrows in Mix and Meter Mode could become 'bank by 8' arrows?
Left moves grid left 8 steps, right moves grid right 8 steps, etc...
An option to switch arrows from single track movement to bank x8 movement would be excellent.

the Apc mini script uses the arrow buttons as the mode selector buttons in shift state.
So when using mixer mode when in the Apc mini arsenal script, to bank from mixing tracks 1-8 to in 9-16, one has to press switch to session mode, release shift, then re-press shift to open shift state session navigation, select the appropriate illuminated red button in the second row use to slide the red box right 8 tracks, which in turn banks the mixer control over to 9-16 as well. But your not in mixer mode. So one would then then press whichever arrow mode key the mixer mode was assigned to to return to mixer mode, then release the shift button.
An option to convert the arrows keys to bank by 8 keys would remove all the extra steps for such a basic option.
Holding shift with dedicated buttons would be okay.
The point for me, is to remove the shift all together for movement if you only want to bank by 8.
Which is all I do, and what I see others do as well.
Would this affect instrument grid modes that address single instruments as well?
I do not use this script for instrumentation, but it seems an option would cover most needs.
The option affecting all other modes is not a problem, from the point of view from my usage patterns.
