The Multi Pads

The PSR-2000/1000 Multi Pads can be used to play a number of short pre-recorded rhythmic and melodic sequences
that can be used to add impact and variety to your keyboard performances.

Playing the Multi Pads

Select the desired bank in the MULTI PAD Bank display (page 38).
Press any of the Multi Pads.
The corresponding phrase (in this case, for Pad 4) starts playing back in its entirety as
soon as the pad is pressed.
The Multi Pad function provides two different ways to stop in the middle of the
phrase :
• To stop all pads, press and release the [STOP] button.
• To stop specific pads, simultaneously hold down the [STOP] button and press the
pad or pads you wish to stop.

Chord Match

Turn ACMP on (page 60).
Play a chord with your left hand and press any of the Multi Pads.
Auto Accompaniment
In this example, the phrase for Pad 1 will be transposed into F major before playing back.
Try playing other chords and pressing the pads. Keep in mind that you can also change chords while a pad is playing back.
