The Magic Begins – Get Creative With Effects, Sequencers & Arpeggiators!

Step Sequencers Page

Use two simultaneous step sequencers with 8 memory slots, changing sequence on the fly via key-switch. Record your sequences by playing, not by drawing.

Crystals Page

Generate special delay lines that can be pitched and harmonised in triads, fifths, suspended or random for a total inspiring sound creation! Filter, and blur the Crystals with the Cloud filter. Grains can be more or less pronounced to one’s taste. Finish them up with distortion, phaser and an additional delay.

Arpeggiator Page

Arpeggiate short sounds or trigger sequences with the arpeggiator (yes you can!). Play sequencers and arpeggiator in parallel with 2 different sounds.

Step FX Page

This allows you to add step sequenced effects to each sound layer individually. Choose from Filter Cutoff, Filter Resonance, Distortion and Formant Filter.


The following keyswitches give you instant shortcut access to the instrument’s most useful live performance modes and functions:

  • B-1: Temporary sequence randomisation
  • C0 to G0: Sequence selectors from 1 to 8
  • G#0: Single mode – Both Layers play simultaneously
  • A0: Dual Mode – Layer A plays below Split Point, Layer B plays above Split Point
  • A#0: Random Play Mode: Layer Ab and B alternate randomly
  • B0: Define split point
