    When mapping in Deck focus is it possible to map all the clip slots, then map the deck buttons in a way that the decks change but the buttons to trigger said slots stay the same?

    Same question is that possible to change the decks using same botton (Not the composition only the Deck optision) or is it updated in resolume 6 arena

      Hey Suresh, Within Resolume 5 you are unable to use one button to switch decks. Might be possible with a third party software like bomes midi translator. However, with Resolume 6 you are able to select previous and next comp as a midi input.

    Guys, you recommend that the best controller it's the APC40MKII and in this video you have a xone? It does it make sense. Anyone can help me to set the layout on my apc 40 MKII? Thank you.

      It doesn't. I meant.

      No worries, Giovanni. You can use your APC exactly the same way as the Xone is used in the video. And if you're looking for a starting point on how to use your APC, Resolume comes with a MIDI preset especially for the APC40Mk2.
