Hi anyone familiar with this unit? I just picked one a couple of days ago. I have for the most part figured out this recorder but I'm stuck on one thing.
Is it possible to change the key of the prerecorded rhythm tracks? It seems like everything is in the key of E. I've read the manual back to back.
Great unit by the way!
