About the microSTATION's combinations
A "combination" consists of up to sixteen programs, 
which can be split or layered. This lets you create 
complex sounds that would not be possible for an 
individual program. You'll use Combination mode to 
play or edit combinations.
This chapter explains the basics of using combinations, 
such as how to use the panel buttons and perform 
basic editing in Combination mode.
