    Hey Vince and Dataloopers,
    When I started using the DL I was able to use the far right pedals to Arm tracks, then when I switched to the next looper the original track would disarm and the new track would arm.
    This was great for my workflow as it meant I didn’t need to use the mouse or a control surface to arm my track and start recording. I also had it set to simultaneously select the track (so I can see when I am recording) and to select my macros so I could start tweaking straight away.
    Now the track I am leaving stays armed meaning I have to manually disarm it. Also all three DL tracks will now stay armed and guitar will play through all three tracks.
    Basically I’ve tried all the configurations I can think of from the web page, also the exclusive arming doesn’t help (also from the preferences page)
    Can you tell me if there is a way to return to my previous set up so I can select the track arm/disarm and select my macros all in one push?
    I’ve deleted all my DLCFG files from when I set the DL up.
    Thanks

    2 ideas here:

    One alternative to the arm/disarm is to have your guitar track (with no looper on it), then 3 separate looper tracks, with the loopers set to never pass audio (the option in the lower right corner). This way, the loop tracks only pass audio when a loop is loaded. If looper tracks have specific fx or gain structure stuff, you can put that in the original instrument track in an audio fx rack, then use a control change message (non-toggling) to switch between chains. This has the advantage of having the LED display which fx bank you are on.

    Option 2 is to keep doing things the way you are and use control change messages (non-toggling). On each button, you’d send 3 messages, 2 CC off and one CC on. The CC offs would disarm the unwanted tracks, the CC on would arm the desired track. This method has the advantage of a nice looking session after recording is complete.

    Hope that helps!
