The other way of doing things, is that the highest bank sets the rightmost 
strip to the highest strip number and fills back from there. All the 
strips are always used (so long as there are at least enough strips to do 
so). SO far this how the OSC code works.

Those of you who use a control surface, do you find one way better than 
the other? Does anyone use their control surface with another daw and find 
Ardour does things different and that it is confusing switching back and 

Probably both Surfaces should work the same, so I will change the one
