Pad 1 sets the current track's position as the Entry point of a Loop (Loop In). If a Loop is triggered, the same button will jump the track to the Loop In point each time is pressed.
While a loop is active, hold SHIFT down and then use this button to set the Jogwheel to Loop In Adjust mode and fine adjust the Loop In point using a jogwheel (of a controller or even from the skin).

Pad 2 sets the current track's position as the Exit point of a Loop (Loop Out) and enables the manual loop. If a Loop is triggered, the same button will exit the Loop.
While a loop is active, hold SHIFT down and then use this button to set the Jogwheel to Loop Out Adjust mode and fine adjust the Loop Out point using a jogwheel (of a controller or even from the skin).

Pad 3 enables/disables a Loop of the selected size in beats.
While a loop is active, hold SHIFT down and then use this button to set the Jogwheel to Loop Move Adjust mode and fine move the Loop through the track using a jogwheel (of a controller or even from the skin).

Pad 4 - Reloop. Will enable the last triggered loop (will jump to its Loop In position).
Hold SHIFT down and then use this Pad to enable/disable Smart Loop mode. When enabled, manual loops will be auto-adjusted to the nearest size, to provide a seamless loop.

Pad 5 halves the size of the Loop in beats.
Hold SHIFT to enable/disable the Loop Back mode. When this mode is enabled, the current track's position will be the Exit point of an Auto Loop.

Pad 6 doubles the size of the Loop in beats.
Hold SHIFT and then use this pad to enable/disable the Quantize Loop mode. When enabled, loops will be snapped to the nearest beat.

Pad 7 will move the triggered loop backwards by 1 beat
Hold SHIFT to move the the triggered loop backwards by the same size in beats as the loop

Pad 8 will move the triggered loop forward by 1 beat
Hold SHIFT to move the the triggered loop forward by the same size in beats as the loop
