The [keys] menu gives you access to a playable keyboard suited for performing and recording. In a running sequence, it displays the value of the currently playing step.

In the Note Mode, the [keys] output 1V/oct and Midi Note On & Off

 

[step 1 to 12] Represent your Keyboard in the user's scale  

 

 

RED: shows the last played note from the pattern.

GREEN: shows the selected note.

YELLOW: The last note is equal to the selected note.

 

The Octave can be selected via [step 13] or [step 14]:

→[step 13] is octave down →[step 14] is octave up

[step 16] is an accent, hold it and all the notes you play will be set to a high-velocity value. Find more details on the velocity page

User Scale

The User Scale is specific to Note Tracks. 

 

Pressing [shift] + [keys] opens the User Scale.

 

Select the note you want to use by pressing [step 1 to 12].

You can select up to 8 notes for your scale.

Press [keys] to get back to the keyboard and have access only to the note you selected.

The keyboard will still use [step 1 to 12] but the remaining free [steps] will be the same notes but one or more Octaves up.

Transpose

Transpose

Press [shift] + [steps 1 to 12] to transpose all the tracks.

You can also transpose Octaves via [step 13 and 14].

Using the transposition feature in combination with the user's scale allows you to make quick and easy chord progressions.

User scale and transpose are shared by all the tracks but can be deactivated independently on the Track Settings.

Performance Mode

Performance Mode

To activate the Override mode, turn ON the [performance] switch.

 

Now, the keyboard is no longer outputting directly the chosen value but behaves like a sequenced arpeggiator.

Every note from the sequence will be replaced by the note just pressed.

Holding [shift] before releasing the notes will keep them playing until the [performance] mode is turned off.

Activating [rec] allows you to write the arpeggiated value to the currently playing sequence.
