Change the mapping of the controller's PFL button (If it has one) to the following:

select ? device_side 'left' ? deck 1 leftdeck ? on & deck 3 leftdeck & deck 3 select : on & deck 1 leftdeck & deck 1 select : deck 2 rightdeck ? on & deck 4 rightdeck & deck 4 select : on & deck 2 rightdeck & deck 2 select : select


Pressing the PFL button will select the deck for headphone pre-listen if it's not currently selected, otherwise it will toggle between controlling decks 1 & 3 on the left side or decks 2 & 4 on the right.


Alternatively, you can assign a separate button that is present on both sides of the controller to the following:

device_side 'left' ? deck 1 leftdeck ? deck 3 leftdeck : on & deck 1 leftdeck : deck 2 rightdeck ? deck 4 rightdeck : on & deck 2 rightdeck


This will toggle between decks 1 & 3 on the left side and decks 2 & 4 on the right, with the button LED (If it has one) indicating which deck is selected (On = 3/4)

NOTE: On a single deck controller, you can use the action invert_controllers to change which deck it is assigned to. By default, this is assigned to the EJECT button of the controller if it has one.
