EFFECTS


The Left FX unit (FX1) controls the effects of the Left selected software deck (1 or 3) and the Right FX unit (FX2) controls the effects of the Right selected software deck (2 or 4) respectively.
Use the FX ASSIGN (41) buttons to clone (copy) the Effects from one deck to another.
Each one of the FX unit offers 2 modes. The Single Effect mode that offers one effect slot but more parameters controls per effect, and the Multi Effects mode that offers 3 effect slots (to trigger more than 1 effect at the same time – chained effects).

The selection between those 2 modes is done by pressing the FX MODE (67) button.
