Another useful feature is Clip Launching. Clip Launching allows you to trigger a sound and have it play until you hit stop, or you launch another ‘Clip’ on the same track. There are multiple modes for you to experiment with so you can get in-depth with your performances.

It can be hard to translate your ideas into music at the best of times but with Smart Chord and Smart Scale technology, you can do this with a few touches.
