There are 13 CONTROL MODES in the drumKAT:
1) Tap Tempo - Your personal tempo is read on a Pad and used to adjust the internal Motif Clock (and external MIDI Clock) to match to your tempo.
2) Motif Playback - Control the playback of up to 4 Motifs on one Pad. Can control by Start/Stop, Once, Looped, and Time Slice.
3) External MIDI Clock Control - Send Sequence Start/Stop and send enable/disable sending MIDI Clock.
4) Pressure - Continued pressure on a Pad causes continuous controller effects such as pitch bend, modulation, tremolo, etc.
5) Ready Record - Sets up a Pad to first arm Recording and then stop Recording / start Playing on second hit.
6) Home Base - Hit on Pad causes all Alternating Pads to reset to sound 1, all Motifs to restart at the beginning, and all Pressure controls (Pitchbend etc.) to return to inactive setting.
7) Alt Reset - Hit on Pad causes all Alternating Pads to reset to sound 1.
8) Motif Reset - Hit on Pad causes all Motifs to restart at the beginning.
9) Kit Advance - Hit on Pad causes a Kit Advance.
10) Kit Reverse - Hit on Pad causes a Kit Reverse.
11) Freeze Base - Hit on Pad causes all Alternating patterns to stay stuck where they were until you release by rehitting Freeze Base Pad.
12) Group Step Transpose - Each hit causes all Pads, that are enabled to be transposed, to go up or down in pitch together as you move through a Transpose Chain.
13) AutoPad Transpose - You strike the AutoPad once to start the Mode happening. Then all subsequent hits, of other Pads, will increment to the next transpose slot for that Pad individually.
