 If Manual Loop is selected with Shift and Pad Mode held down this will activate control of hotcues 5-8 on the upper row instead of the looping controls. Select Manual Loop again while holding Pad Mode to restore the default behavior. There will be no indication of which mode is selected (beyond the LEDs on the keys themselves, which will vary depending on loop and hotcue status). The **UseManualLoopAsCue** config option can be set in the mapping file (see above) to swap the default "​shadow"​ mode of the looping controls such that hotcue control will be the default and manual loop control with be selected when Shift is used. If Manual Loop is selected with Shift and Pad Mode held down this will activate control of hotcues 5-8 on the upper row instead of the looping controls.

-Note: the 8 sample slots on each deck all control the same 8 slots in Mixxx no matter which deck the sampler is active on.+Note: the 8 sample slots on each deck all control the same 8 slots in Mixxx no matter which deck the sampler is active on. This is because the controller sends the same MIDI codes for button presses on each side, so there is no way for Mixxx to tell whether a sampler button was pressed on the left or right side of the controller.
