System / Main profile is your default operating system profile which is in use, unless some other profile is selected or an supported application is started.
Your device comes with a "system profile" or "main profile" (name depends on what software version you are currently using) which is the default profile when using your operating system. System / Main profile is in use as long until you select another profile, or an application is started (which is supported by Loupedeck).
See also: Dynamic Mode, which relates to the automatic switching of the profile.
The fun comes in when you start customizing your System / Main Profile to suit your needs! Add all the desktop, custom and universal plugin actions you want to create the perfect control set.
Let's go through all the action types you can add into your system / main profile.
You can find all the default profile related desktop actions on the right side action menu by clicking on the OS-symbol.
