In this case I am referring to a grid of buttons that can be used to 
trigger the various patterns. The is seperate from the pattern 
sequencing grid. The buttons would be larger and shinier and the column 
would be roughly 4 - 10 buttons wide. On each button the pattern name 
would be displayed. When pressing the button it would trigger the 
pattern on/off.

It's actually not needed in order to get the multiple patterns playing 
at one time as Gabriel explains in his last post. However it is what AL 
users would be used to.
