Each of the 4 front pads are assigned to a sample stored on EPROM.
MIDI Implementation is quite simple with classic note on/off, velocity and pitch bender. Also program change to switch internal sounds, channel can be selected from frontal switch from 1 to 14 only (where's 15-16?)
KEY LIMIT You can easily define the Midi Bass Low and High range on you keyboard for split. Just use the "key priority switch"
