Session Overview it important missing feature in Akai APC Mini controller.
The APC MINI Session Overview is the free script adds the missing piece to the controller functionality. It lets you navigate through your Live Set quickly. In Session Overview mode the matrix zooms out to reveal an overview of your Session View.
How it works?
Layout is inspired by similar script from Isotonik Studios.
The script provides 2 ways to use it:
In order to enable Session Overview mode and make it stick,
simply hold Shift and click first button below the [SOFT KEYS].
The button will indicate itself with a green color.
Toggling the button enables/disables the Session Overview mode.
To go back to default clips mode simply un-hold Shift button.
Now each time you hold shift the Session Overview will be activated.
Hold Shift and green button together with delay. This will keep Session Overview active
until you release both buttons. It’s a nice shortcut if you need a navigate quickly without
permanent activation of Session Overview mode.
Colors works very similar to APC40 session overview described here:
