If you are using the microX as a sound source, or as a controller for another piece of gear, make sure that your MIDI
IN/OUT cables are connected properly (IN to OUT, OUT to IN).
3.
If you are using the microX with a computer, make sure that you've installed the USB MIDI Driver software as
described in the manual, and the USB cable is plugged in.

There are two types of sounds in the microX:
PROGRAMS are individual sounds.
COMBINATIONS consist of up to eight Programs, layered and split across the keyboard.
All of the sounds take advantage of the four REALTIME CONTROL knobs, the X/Y JOYSTICK, and the OCTAVE buttons.
Programs have access to a polyphonic arpeggiator. In either COMBI or MULTI mode, you can use two polyphonic
arpeggiators to create beats, bass lines, and lots of other motion to your sound.
The microX is 16-part multitimbral. To have access to all these 16 sounds at once, use MULTI mode. This mode is
especially useful for external MIDI control, such as using the microX as a sound source with an external sequencer.

Let's make some noise! Press one of the PROGRAM/COMBI BANK buttons, and then press the CATEGORY button.

To select a category, use the PROGRAM A-GM BANK or COMBINATION A-C BANK buttons. Specific categories are
listed below each of these BANK buttons.
You can also use the PAGE- or PAGE+ buttons to scroll through categories.
Still not enough options? You can use ClickPoint too! Move once to the left (to highlight the category at
the top of the screen), then press to click. Now you can move it in all directions.
3.
To select a sound within a category, just use the DIAL or move ClickPoint up or down.
4.
In PROGRAM mode, press the AUDITION button to hear an example of how that sound can be used!
Yes, the riffs are copyrighted, so you should probably avoid sampling them.
Only Programs can be auditioned. The AUDITION button is disabled in Combi mode.
