Using the CBX-K1 — Basic Operations
Though the CBX-K1 has many sophisticated functions, it is
very easy to use. All available functions can be controlled
or executed by using the basic operations described in this
section. (For details on individual functions, see pages 18-
The illustration below shows how to use the basic real-time controls of the CBX-K1.

To do this, hold down C and press
M (to advance one program number), or

127 when at 0, or advance to program number 0 when
