A 16-step pad sequencer function is also available. For sound selection, there are more than 1,500 pre-installed samples and up to 200 kit patches. If desired, you can import your own samples in WAV, AIFF and MP3 formats, which can be archived in the 32 GB internal memory. The memory is also useful for real-time productions to record performances directly as WAV files. Up to four effects slots can be populated simultaneously, each with one of the 53 effects. There is also a sidechain effects slot. In addition to the stereo main output, up to eight external triggers/pads are offered as connections. There is also an input for the hi-hat or footswitch expression pedal.
