The Dual Mode

The DUAL mode makes it possible to play two voices simultaneously across the entire range
of the keyboard. To activate the DUAL mode simply press two voice selectors at the same time
(or press one voice selector while holding another). The voice indicators of both selected voices
will light when the DUAL mode is active. To return to the normal single-voice play mode, press
any single voice selector.
