What do the knobs on the left do to the overall sound?
All the knobs or whatever they are called ajust the pitch of the sound.

Electronic Drum Kit

How are the different kits selected?
They are selected with all the buttons on the right side of the drums... they look like arrows.

What happens when you strike the drum head softer?
The sound either grows softer or changes to a different sound.

Roland 300 Digital Piano

How do the keys respond on this instrument?
The keys are real sensitive and they have a good feeling to them, it feels better than a real piano.

How are they different than the Quadrasynth and Motif?
This is not a snythisizer It is almost like a real piano

the variation button changes the pitches or types of modes that this has.

R3 Synth

Set the big knob to vocoder... Press a key and speak into the mic.


What happens?
Your voice is changed and it changes with the keys that you play.

The bottom row of buttons changes the patch... try the different sounds...

I think that the second button has the clearest sound... or no button at all.
