Effects



The Left FX unit (FX1) controls the effects of the left selected deck and the Right FX unit (FX2) controls the effects of the right selected deck. Use the FX ASSIGN (10) buttons to copy the effects from one deck to another.

Each one of the FX units offers 2 modes of operation:
The Single Effect mode that offers one effect slot but more parameters controls per effect.
The Multi Effects mode that offers 4 effect slots (to trigger more than 1 effect at the same time – chained effects) but only one parameter per effect.

The selection between those 2 modes is done by pressing MODE (25) button.
