Underneath the “white” keys of the malletKAT are the BASIC listings of FUNCTIONS. When you step on the Edit and hit one of these pads, the name of that FUNCTION appears. When it does, you simply use the INC/DEC pads to change the values.

On the EXPRESS, you will need two footswitches to get at the EDIT FUNCTIONS normally found on the third octave. See “Edit Mode on the malletKAT EXPRESS” in the “Good Things to Know” chapter.

On some “white” keys, repeated hits call up different functions. On the malletKAT PRO, you can also use the “black keys” as a numeric input instead of the INC/DEC pads. The EXPRESS has limited access to this feature.
