Setting an offset for MIDI mapping?

I want to be able to control the level of several tracks with a knob on my MIDI controller. I know how to assign them, and I know how to set the range of the MIDI assignments. But when doing that, when I turn the knob all faders start to move immediately, and that is not what I'm after in this case. What I want is, that as I turn the knob, the channels are introduced one by one. For instance; when the knob is all the way down to zero, only track 1 is playing. When the knob is up to, say, 25%, the fader on track 2 begins to move. When the knob is up to 50%, track 3 begins turning up a.s.o. Sort of setting the range with an offset value.

The whole idea behind this is to create a scenario, where one loop is playing, and as I turn the knob, the whole arrangement is growing around that loop (or, as I turn the knob down, the arrangement is folded back).

Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

    You can probably do that by grouping all the tracks and using an fx rack; It's not easy to explain that here, because it takes some time to learn, but I think you can achieve it that way.
