As well as the touchscreen, the Loupedeck Live S has four buttons and two dials, all of which are customizable. You can map actions that you regularly use to the buttons or use them to trigger macros. The dials are great for controlling audio levels, and you can also press them to mute your audio.

In addition, you can swipe up and down on the touchscreen to switch between multiple dial configuration pages.
