- Loading Overlays
By default, no overlays are selected in each patch. To select a bank of overlays:
Hold Function and press the Arp-Swing key twice.
Choose from o-0 (no overlays), and o-[1-8] (overlay banks 1-8).
- Saving Overlays
Each bank of overlays (1-8) must be saved individually to do this go to:
Overlay menu (Function + Arp Swing twice) > Press Save
- Copying/Pasting Overlays to different keys.
Press and hold Function + Transpose (in that order) > Press and hold a key (Copy) > Press another key (Paste).
CPY will show on the screen when copying PST will show when pasting.
- Protecting (Read only) Overlays
Hold Function and press the Seq-Retrig key twice
On the Screen, change r-0 (read-only disabled) to 1 (read-only enabled).
- Fixed Duration Sustain Envelopes
Hold Function > Press the Amp-Env or Mod-Env key Four Times > Bank to d-1
- Envelope Retriggering Count
Hold Function > Press the Amp-Env or Mod-Envkey Three Times > Bank to [C1-16]to set the number of loops.
When set to c-0 the loops will be indefinite when the key is held.
- Glide Divergence

When glide divergence is enabled oscillator 2 will always glide more slowly than oscillator 1. The selected value determines how much more slowly oscillator 2 glides.
