as for setting keyboard and velocity zones, or selecting
the note to edit in Drum Kits, Multisamples, or RPPR
ENTER + LOCATE
This shortcut sets the Sequencer's locate point to the
current measure, beat, and tick, similar to using the Set

2. While holding ENTER, press the LOCATE key.
After this, pressing LOCATE returns the Song to the
newly set measure, beat, and tick.

controlled by an external device. Connect this to the
word clock output of the master clock source.

• Press it a third time to select the main parameter on
the P0 page, such as the Program name in Program
Wherever you are in Program, Combi, or Sequencer
modes, pressing EXIT three times (or fewer) will take
you back to Program/Combination/Song Select, where
you can immediately use the numeric keys or
switches to select a Program, Combination, or Song.
EXIT switch: Cancel in dialog boxes
When a dialog box is displayed, this has the same
function as the Cancel, Done, or Exit button.
4. USB 2.0
The Word Clock input requires a shielded, video‐
quality cable (75‐ohm or greater impedance) with BNC
connectors. This type of cable is different from those
commonly used in analog audio applications, but is
readily available at professional audio and video
The ADAT optical output carries eight channels of 24‐
bit digital audio, mirroring analog individual outputs
1‐8. You can use the Global Audio page L/R Bus Indiv.
Assign parameter to map the main stereo outputs to
any of these output pairs, if you like.
