This guide complements the Tutorial Videos and can be used as a quick-start or as a reference. Unlike the videos, which use the block diagram to overview and understand how the machine works, the quide contains straight-forward steps for practical tasks such as 'How to record', How to add reverb', 'How to bounce', 'How to backup tracks & songs', etc. Details & background info are also provided, but are arranged so they can be easily read or skipped as reqd.
