TD-20: Pad Pattern
Its possible to strike one of the pads in a kit to start and stop or tap through a pattern. Use the following steps to assign a pattern to a pad:
1. Select a desired kit.
2. Press INST so its lit.
3. Press F3 [CONTROL].
4. Strike the pad you wish to assign a pattern to.
5. Turn the VALUE dial, or press the INC+ / DEC- buttons to select a desired pattern.
6. Now, strike the same pad again and the pattern will start. Strike the pad to stop the pattern.
Note: If you selected a Tap pattern- i.e. #85 JAZZ END, playing the pad repeatedly will step (or tap) through the pattern.
Tip: Some of the TD-20s preset kits have a pattern already assigned to a pad. If you would like to turn off the pad pattern feature for that kit, follow steps 2-4 above. Then, for step 5, turn the VALUE dial counterclockwise or press the DEC- button to select OFF.
