Basic Button Station Functions

Before diving into how to program Rosalind Lite, it’s helpful to understand some basic button functions. These will come in handy later as you begin planning out your looks and snapshots!

Basic Button Interactions

Short Press

To activate a button’s function, short press it. A short press is a normal button press that lasts less than half a second.

Long Press

To long press a button, press and hold it. After a little longer than half a second, the LED color will change from the normal pressed color to a pale yellow color.

Default Button Behavior

By default:
  • Short pressing a button activates its function
  • Long pressing a button will deactivate it, fading to black.

Push On/Push Off Mode

In Push On Push Off mode, you activate a button by pressing it, and then deactivate it by pressing it again. Long press is still active, but does the same thing as a short press.

Program Mode

When programming buttons, you must first put each button into Program Mode. A button will blink to indicate that it’s in Program Mode - you can then long press the button to save the current snapshot.

Special Button Functions

Off Button

It is possible to enable Button 8 as the “OFF” button. In this mode, pressing Button 8 will deactivate all active presets and then return the button to its idle state.
If you are running in Pile-on mode, this will turn off all presets at once.
