Types of Indicators

The element indicators are divided into two groups: Controls and Functions


  • Control Event: a control of the element has generated an event (fader moved, button clicked, encoder rotate, etc.)
  • Function Trigger: A function of the element has been triggered (either via a control mapped to that function, or via a LUA script)
  • Function Feedback: Some functions provide feedback (fader position, button LED state, etc.). Whenever a function generates feedback, this indicator blinks.
  • Control Feedback: A control received feedback from a mapped function
