to the last selected track, keep the SHIFT button

Note: Some manufacturers could use the 1–128 numbering
system; when connecting your Liverpool to an instrument of
this kind, increment the PC value by 1 unit.

instead of relying on A–D effects. Two effect processors
(FX1 and FX2) are available.

channel is assigned, notes can be received also on this
channel. See "Page 6 - MIDI IN Channels" on page 128
and "Page 10 - MIDI OUT Channels" on page 130 for
more information.
