I ended up with two StreamDecks - a Mini and a regular one. (So 6 and 15 buttons, respectively.) I’ll refer to the 15-button one as my main Streamdeck.
Recently somebody mentioned using the small one to switch (app-specific) profiles on the main one.
My take on app-specific profiles is they kick in automatically when I switch to the relevant app. So I haven’t gone down this route.
On my main StreamDeck I always add a number of navigation buttons bottom right. This is painful to do on every profile. I suppose I could dedicate the small one to a standard set of buttons that are profile-independent.
In reality I’m using the small StreamDeck as an overflow. I had thought of it as an “on the road” StreamDeck but I actually take both with me (and found a padded pouch for the main StreamDeck).
I’m interested in how others are managing their StreamDeck(s). Also how they use them, but this post is intended to be about management.
I’m using 4.4.1 of their software - exclusively on Mac - and find it perfectly stable.
I will say I love my StreamDecks and if I forget to plug them in - as I did on a trip like last week - I feel all clumsy. So I guess that’s money well spent.
