Changing the octave
You can change the range of the 16KEYS – keys by octaves, with a maxi-
mum range of a maximum of two octaves up or two octaves down. The LED
indicator will show the currently selected octave.
The arpeggiator detects the notes being played on the keyboard, and automatically plays these notes one at
a time in a variety of arpeggiated styles (i.e., arpeggiates the notes of the chord).
On the RADIAS, you can select one of six arpeggio types, and also specify the duration and spacing of each
note in the arpeggio.
