since there is "left deck" "right deck" and "selected deck" there should also be an "unselected deck" option. I have a specific need for this function. this would not take much additional programming time at all I would imagine.

Explain. Select deck only applies to functions which are deck dependent (like load track to deck), they don't make sense without a selected deck.

the opposite deck of "selected deck" is "unselected deck". i think it's pretty simple if you understand the concept of selected deck, and that it can control the left or right decks when they aren't selected.

when I'm using serato with 1 deck only this would be a very nice feature to have for joystick triggers (set unselected deck to internal mode for example) when you do the 1 deck trick you need to have the unselected deck to be in internal mode in order to swap and continue playing (otherwise the music stops when you swap)

Sorry, I can't follow you. Can you explain it in simple words please... ;) Step by step.

think he means......

say DECK 1 is selected
then assign "LOOP TRIGGER for UNSELECTED DECK" to a 57 button B1

Now when you press B1 it will LOOP the track playing on DECK 2 as that is the "UNSELECTED" DECK.

If you then have DECK 2 selected and press B1 it would LOOP the track on DECK 1.

Ah, like "opposite-of-selected" deck (don't laugh!). Gotcha. I thought he meant select-no-deck-at-all.

yes boabmatic you got it. nik39 I thought I spelled it out pretty clearly but please let me know if you are still confused. it is so that I can make changes to the other than selected deck without having to click "reverse inputs" again to make those changes...I could change with "unselected deck" option for my buttons since I know exactly what I want it to do. this would be very useful when only using 1 deck.
