You might be also interested in the different styles of colour based track highlighting tried by Banned in his code for the Peavey StudioMix

Appropriately pair the tracks' select and deselect, and only execute each of them once. Consider the order that things are actually happening on the two (allegedly) different threads @midimsg and @timer, as you are deducing from the log. One might need some sort of semaphore to wait momentarily and synchronously in @midimsg until @timer has run for the first time. Print messages using time_precise() to the log may be helpful whilst debugging.

Beyond that one would need to see code, and associated log fragments, and possibly screen shots to be more helpful.

Been thinking further. Whilst the visual cues on track banking should be good, one needs to have a think about the undesirable effect of either solos or mutes when using the Midimix for live mixing.

It's a shame that one can set colours etc with a Reaper action but there is no "toggle track colour" type action.

An understated way of visually highlighting the tracks, that will have no audio effect, might be just to select the eight tracks in the bank and then unselect them after the one second delay.
