Effects



The Left FX section (FX1) controls the effects of the deck 1 and the Right FX section (FX2) controls the effects of deck 2. Use the FX ASSIGN (11) buttons to copy the effects from one deck to another.

Each one of the FX unit offers 2 modes:
The Single Effect mode offers one effect slot but more parameters controls per effect.
The Multi Effects mode 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 DRY/WET (22) button while SHIFT is held.

Quick Note:
Not all effects offer multiple switches (buttons) and parameters (knobs) to adjust their behavior. Therefore it's absolutely normal that in Single FX mode some buttons and / or knobs may do nothing when used. Browser
