Hold
If you press the HOLD button while your finger is
on the touch pad, you can take your finger away
and the effect will continue to play as if your fin-
ger was still on the touch pad, and at the same
location as when you pressed the HOLD button.

Selecting an effect program

Turn the PROG/VALUE knob to select an effect
program 00–99.
FX RELEASE setting
Hold down the MEMORY B button and press the
TAP button, and then use the PROG/VALUE
knob to select "r.On" (FX Release On) or "r.OF"
(FX Release Off).
To return to the normal play mode, once again
hold down the MEMORY B button and press the
TAP button. The mini-KP will also return to the
normal play mode (program selection state) af-
ter about three seconds if no additional setting
operations are performed. This setting will be re-
membered even when the power is turned off.
What is FX RELEASE?
With FX RELEASE, the moment you take your
hand off the touch pad, a delay effect synchro-
nized to the current BPM will be applied, and will
then gradually diminish. This allows you to make
smoother transitions and avoid the abrupt
change from a hard-edge effect back to the origi-
nal —and unaffected— signal.
Adjusting the effect depth
Hold down the MEMORY A button and press the
TAP button, and then use the PROG/VALUE
knob to set the effect depth. To return to the
normal play mode, once again hold down the
MEMORY A button and press the TAP button.
The mini-KP will also return to the normal play
mode (program selection state) after about fif-
teen seconds if no additional setting operations
are performed.
Using the MEMORY A/B buttons
Each of the MEMORY A/B buttons be used to
store an effect program, the effect depth, the
HOLD button on/off status and the held position
on the touch pad. Then you can simply press the
MEMORY A or B button to instantly recall the
stored settings.
Storing the current settings to a
MEMORY button
Select the program that you want to store, and
adjust the effect depth. If you want to store the
Hold state, press the HOLD button to turn it on.
The position at which you last touched the pad will
be stored as the held position on the touch pad.
Hold down one of the MEMORY buttons (A or B)
and press the HOLD button; the current settings
will be stored to that MEMORY button.

Setting the BPM

When you press the TAP button, the current
BPM setting will be displayed. Hit the TAP button
several times in tempo with your song, and the
mini-KP will detect the corresponding BPM
value and use it as the current setting. While the
BPM value is displayed, you can also adjust the
BPM value by turning the PROG/VALUE knob. If
you hold down the TAP button for an extended
time, the mini-KP will switch from the BPM set-
ting back to program selection.
The mini-KP will also return to the program se-
lection state if you haven't performed any setting
operation for five seconds.

Restoring the factory settings

Hold down the TAP button and the MEMORY A
button as you turn on the power; all settings will
return to their factory-set state.
