notes on any following passage. This is very useful to record
different percussive instruments at any cycle on a Drum or
Note: While recording, track's Keyboard Range (see
page 132) is ignored, and the track can play over the whole

When ﬁnished recording, press START/STOP to stop the
arranger. Select a different track, and go on recording the

length, inserted at its end, will be reduced to ﬁt the total
length of the pattern.
At this point, you may go on, inserting new events in over-
dub mode (the previously inserted events will not be
deleted). This is very useful when recording a drum or per-

on a ﬁrst cycle, the snare drum on the second cycle, and the
hi-hat and cymbals during the following cycles.
When ﬁnished recording, touch the Done button in the

If you touch Cancel, exit is canceled, and you can continue
editing. If you choose No, changes are not saved, and the
Step Record window is closed. If you choose Yes, changes
are saved, and the Step Record window is closed.
