The Grid is a powerful sequencer adapted to live music situation. See grid tutorial.
A grid contains grid-elements created by a simple Drag & Drop of racks, patches or presets.
The grid is separated in several sections, representing parts of your song or live performance. Within each you can decide if it is played in loop, paused at the end, or continue to the next section.
The transport area of the grid provides classic functions such as basic navigation and the jump to next section.
