Advance 49: how do you program scale features to controls

I discovered that the Advance 49 has a scale mode; but that is buried in a side menu, which you can access only by pressing the left arrow on the keyboard, which is commonly used to scroll through pages for the parameters.

I find strange that there is a button for the arpeggiator right on the panel; and with shift, you can change the parameters; while for chord mode; you have to bend backwards going into sub menus to get stuff configured.

Is there a secret mode to enable scale mode and parameter, exactly like the ARP mode? I can happily give up on the latch button, which is useless to me to be honest; and gladly use that button for scale.

  • Hey lumberjack,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Key Control parameters can only be accessed by pressing Main and then the Left Page button. I agree that a secondary Config function for the Key Control settings would be a useful feature, and help to speed the programming process.

    I'd be happy to submit your comments to our development team for consideration in future updates!

    Thanks for your feedback :)

  • Thanks Eliza; it would be appreciated if you could pass on the suggestion.

    I can manage by using the left page button but it is a bit of a slower process, compared to have the setting dedicated to one button.

    Of course your team did design the keyboard thinking about what is most commonly used, as far as interface; so that's why the latch button is there, instead of being a shift-arpeggiator button function; but if possible I would rather have the latch button used as scale; and shift-scale would bring up the menu you get now by going on the left page on the main menu.

    I doubt that a new keyboard will be ready for a while; unless you are planning a release of a new Advance series of keyboards :) So I guess I have to get used to this workflow ;)
