The Pad Initialize feature in the SPD-SX lets you clear the settings and assignments for a Pad within a Kit. This can be useful if you want to start from scratch and assign new settings to a particular Pad without effecting other pads in the Kit. (Note: Initializing a Pad does not permanently delete the wave from the SPD-SX's internal memory).
Here's how to Initialize a Pad in a Kit:
1. Select the Kit that you'd like to edit.
2. Press MENU.
3. Press the cursor right button to highlight the "PAD" icon, and then press ENTER.
4. Press the QUICK button.
5. Cursor to "PAD INIT," and then press ENTER.
6. Press the + or - button to choose the Pad that you want to initialize.
7. Press ENTER twice.
