MC6 Pro - toggle group on LCD

I have no problem handling midi commands. Everything works perfectly, but I don’t know how to use the potential of LCD to beautifully visually mark, select and deselect which PC is active in the group.

Below is an example:
The selected 5 buttons should be a group.

If one is ON, the others should be OFF (no midi command is sent from the OFF button, just a visual change of the display status). The midi command is only sent from the specific button that is to be ON.

Is it even possibile?

Please help, I looked through the manual, forum and gave up.

I think you may be looking for Clear Preset Toggles in the controller settings. This will toggle off any engaged preset when another is pressed.

Would be a quick solution but since only 5 presets should be grouped I’d go with ‘set toggle’ commands. You’d have to program each preset of the group with a ‘set toggle’ + ‘disengage’ ‘message type’ to switch the other four to ‘pos1’ without sending any midi messages.

Yes, you can have the 5 preset states interact with each other. You just need to add a Set Toggle message to each of your switches. The message should disengage the toggle states of the other 4 switches. You can read more about the Set Toggle message type here: Message Type List

Thanks for all the replies.
Yes, it’s probably “Set Toggle” is the right command, but I don’t know how to use it in the context of patch in MC6Pro.
Can you give an example from the editor? I guess I don’t understand how to use Pos:1, Pos:2, Pos:Both in the patch with “Set Toggle”.
There is a description in the manual - super cool … but there is no example how to use it.

OK - Solved
Through trial and error, I’ve come to the conclusion that must be “Both” and then it always works.

To shed some light on this:
‘Pos1’ (position 1) is the default state of the presets when entering a bank.

If ‘toggle mode’ is on, every action (press, release, double tap etc.) will toggle the preset to ‘Pos2’.

A preset is ‘disengaged’ in ‘Pos1’ and ‘engaged’ in ‘Pos2’.

If you set a message to ‘both’ it will be send regardless of the toggle position of the preset.

Thanks for all answers. Now it seems more logical.

I’ll post the results later, maybe it will be useful to someone.
