Now you can select the new bank. (tap on the little triangle where you select the working bank) now this is your active bank. and you can make your own programs there. To start a new prog use “Init new” from the main menue.

Q: How many voices should I expect?
A: This varies from unit to unit and also what background apps you have running at the same time. It also depends on the sound used – sounds with shorter release times will allow the audio engine in the iPad to give more voices without loss of sound or stuttering.
We have achieved one of the best sounding Apps on the market as well as higher voice performance than other apps, but as always is the case, there will be limitations in the iOS environment.
