NS3 programs and banks

Postby peteques » 12 Aug 2018, 14:14

Hi all
Another newbie to Stage 3 ques - sorry. Programs and banks are confusing me (as is the whole Program section tbh). Is there a difference between a program and a bank? On the display you get eg B:14 - this is a bank right? And the program buttons are below. How are these to be used? For example in a song set, would I assign different sounds/layers etc and put them in the program buttons under the display. So sorry if this is a stupid question - hope someone can explain to a thickie like me. How do other people use them etc?
Thanks for help Pete :)

Hi and welcome. Your profile doesn’t indicate your home country, but in the USA manual (v1.4), info on the Program buttons and options can be found on Page 30.

A more thorough explanation can be found in the release notes for OS v1.40:

Hi Pete,

a bank holds a number of programs, which is organized in 5 groups per bank. B:14 means you have selected program number 4 from group 1 in Bank B. The program buttons provide direct access to the five programs of the active group in the selected bank.

This is somewhat similar in Song mode. A song contains 5 parts (in fact 5 programs) which can be selected with the programs buttons when you are in Song mode
