Now press the notes consecutively. Notice that the
patterns function in a different way.
With the Measure setting, patterns will be handled in
one‐measure units. The second and subsequent
patterns will start in sync with the end of pattern that
was previously played.

your finger from the keyboard immediately.
• To stop playback, either press the same key once
again, or press the C2 or lower key.
For details on Sync, Mode, and Shift, please see
page 158 of the Parameter Guide.
• The assigned keys are also shown in the keyboard
graphic in the display.
• Keys where no patterns are assigned can be played
normally. Use Track Select to select the track you
want to play. For example you could assign backing
patterns for drums or bass to keys C#2–B2 and use
these keys to control the pattern playback, while
using the keys C3 and above to play a solo
performance in realtime. It's a good idea to keep
your RPPR assignments within a specific range of
