About the microSTATION's programs
On the microSTATION, a "program" is the basic 
sound. You'll use Program mode to play programs.
Programs are also used outside of Program mode.
In Combination mode you can combine multiple 
programs to create complex sounds.
In Sequencer mode you can assign a program to each 
MIDI track of the internal sequencer, or use the 
microSTATION as a sound module that's played from 
an external 16‐channel MIDI sequencer.
In this section we'll explain basic ways to use 
programs, such as using the panel buttons in Program 
mode and basic editing.
