KEY

ACTION

H1 NAV
Use the Up/Down/Left/Right Navigation buttons to navigate through the Parameters and Pages when a Program, or a Sequence is edited
H2 PRESET

H5 NOTE REPEAT
Press and hold this button while striking a pad to cause the pad to re-trigger at a rate based on the current tempo and Time Division settings
H6 TAP TEMPO
Press this button in time with the desired tempo to enter a new tempo (in BPM). This will affect the speed of the Note Repeat feature.
Note: This button is disabled by default since the external MIDI clock source is enabled. If you wish to disable external Midi Clock from VirtualDJ, right-click on the AKAI MPD232 entry in VirtualDJ Settings->Controllers tab.
H7 16 LEVEL
Press this button to activate/deactivate 16 Level mode. When activated, the last pad that was hit will be temporarily copied to all 16 pads. The pads will now output the same note number as the initial pad but at fixed velocity values that increase as the pad numbers increase (e.g., Pad 1 is the minimum, Pad 16 is the maximum), regardless of how hard you hit them
Note : Makes sense to use this mode in Sampler mode only
H8 FULL LEVEL
When enabled,
the 16 velocity PADS will send full velocity speed, regardless the pushing strength
T TIME DIV
When enabled, select a Time division using the CONTROL buttons B1-B8, which affects the Pads Repeat mode


* SEQUENCER

S SEQ STEPS
Each button represent a step in a sequence. Steps can be set from Edit mode. When a button is enabled, the selected track/sample will be triggered
B SEQ BANK
Select Steps Bank 1-16 or 17-32
S1 SEQ ON/OFF
Start/stop playing the sequence
S2 SEQ EDIT
Enter Sequence editing mode. Select Tracks 1 to 16. Not advised to use Tracks further to 16 (of other Banks), as those will trigger other VirtualDJ actions instead of Samples. Use the navigation buttons to manually edit their velocity (volume)
S3 SEQ REC
Start/stop sequence recording. When enabled, use Pads 1 to 16 in Sampler mode to trigger VirtualDJ Samples and manually create a sequence.
