Function Layers

The function of the knobs an faders can be changed by switching layers. Pressing one of the REC ARM buttons, activates a different layer. Each layer corresponds to a section of develop parameters in Lightroom. Using the tabs below will reveal a table for each layer.

Note that not all controls are always mapped to a function. And in layer 5, all knobs and faders have no effect. In this layer, you can change the controllers without affecting Lightroom parameters. You can use this for example when you have just moved a fader to the end and want to start from the middle with a different photo.
