The eight pads represent eight sequential beats—"Slices"—in the Beat Grid. The playing Slice is represented by the currently green lit pad. The green light will "move through the pads" as it progresses through each eight-Slice phrase. Press a pad to repeat that Slice (hold it down if you want to keep looping it).
Once the Pad is released the track will continue to play from the position it would have been if the pad was never pressed.

Hold SHIFT button down and then use the same Pads to use the Slicer in Hold mode. In this mode, the slices are memorized (using the last triggered ones)
