WHAT YOU GET.

5 X 8 Step drum sequencers in the clip launch matrix push button activation with feedback

1 x 16 step 1/16th note Bass sequencer using the clip stop & track select for push button activation & feedback

1x 16 step 1/16th note lead sequencer using activator & solo/cue buttons for step on and off.

any drum sequence can be launched using the apropriate scene launch buttons on the APC

bass sequence is launched with the stop clips button

lead sequence is launched with the master button

all sequences can be stopped with the record arm button 1-7 number 8 stops all sequences.

pressing shift on the APC will light all buttons that are active briefly if playing, permanently if any or all sequences are stopped.

bass & lead sequences have pitch & duration for each individual step as follow

Bass sequence pitch = track controll pots PAN (1-Cool device control bank 5 (9-16)
Bass sequence Duration = track control pots SEND-A (1-Cool device control bank 6 (9-16)

each sequence can be transposed up or down by 0-24 semitones by using device control bank 4 knobs 1 & 2
