How It Works

A multipad is a four track midi file. On the instrument, a pad is played by depressing one or more of four pad buttons, which starts the pattern(s). Depending upon settings, each pad can play once or repeat endlessly, and have a fixed pitch or follow chords keyed into the accompaniment section.

Since pad patterns are very similar to style patterns, a multipad can be made by copying qualifying parts of a style (e.g. the Chord2 part from the Intro C section) to a pad track.

PadMaker provides tools for selecting style parts, copying them to a new multipad, and editing the voice and other characteristics.
