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
