There's 2 'layers' on each encoder, accessible through the select (SEL) switch under the encoder. The select switch will toggle between the layers, giving dual functionality possibilities to both the encoder itself and the b-m-p switch.


This mapping seems to be broken in PT10, I can't import my old maps and I can't "learn" the channel's encoders to behave differently...
This together with the disappearing maps in CF Plug-in view is functionality that seems to be forgotten. Or am I missing something? (I did trash the preferences since installing PT10).

It's frustrating - hopefully we get some bug fixes in the next release...

Hi Chris,

is that a D-Control only function? I don't see any EDIT button other than the one that shows the edit window. Thanks for all this info!!

This one is by Gil Gowing : Easy way to quickly create a custom fader group through selecting the tracks you want in the CF group :

You can do this. Select the tracks you want, select the custom group you want to populate, double press the edit button to name the group and return. The selected channels will populate the custom group.
