The output of each timbre is sent to the insert

audio signals will be routed.
There is one insert effect and two master effects,
and for each of these you can choose one of 89
effect types. The master EQ is a stereo three-band

independently for the combination.

arpeggio pattern, specify the range in which the
arpeggio is generated, and specify the region of
