    Some people like myself, use the remix decks to trigger samples while DJing, the current S4 mk3 setup only allowing 4 of your 8 pads at a time to trigger a sample is just a waste of 4 of the pads, I've already set volumes filters etc for them in advance, an option to switch to an 8-pad mode without those controls is a must really. It's currently a real step down coming from an S5.

    I'm pretty sure you can do this through custom mapping. Trying it tomorrow.

    But yea the option to choose betweem 4 and 8 pr deck would be awesome.

    Ah I just got it working before you posted this....

    I use alot of vocal loops, percussion loops etc though, and this workaround is too clunky unfortunately.
    Can't find any mappable way of stopping a 5-8 slot once it's started, and I don't want 4 loops playing at once - pads 1-4 stop is shift+push again, closest i found to assign to 5-8 was stop/delete/load slots mappable, but its too easy to accidently wipe out my samples if pushed more than once, so no good in a live situation.

    I think I'll be going back to my S5, as Remix Decks seem such an afterthought on this controller.

    Thanks anyway!

    You are right.
    The looper triggers the 4 slots and there are no mappings for choosing which sample in the slots :|

    So you can't make loops with more than 4 drums =o

    (I did not get them to even record for the loop, tried alot, but no luck)
