just press that big red START/STOP button again".
Yes, you are perfectly right. But that's the easy way. Let us
suggest a more colorful way:
PRESS ENDING1 OR ENDING2
An ending is instantaneously called, and will begin playing,
to lead the Style to a colorful end. As usual, ENDING1 is pre‐

simply select another Performance. Or change the track's set‐
