or how to play reggae chords ou chords in general.

monophony is too much limited

BUT

APPLY DELAY - FOR Example: SPEED: 1/4 with DEPTH: 127
+
PUSH on steps 1, 5 and 9: 3 components of a chord (STEP 1: E4, STEP 5: A4, STEP 9:C5 so as to play a Aminor)

SAMPLE on the 9th step exactly when the 3 notes are played together (thanks to DELAY)

(the first note is repeated on the second and those are together repeated on the third)

AND: so as to free a SYNTH PART, you can play this ONE SHOT chord on a DRUM PART.

OPTION:
1 - with PITCH you can reach other chords
2 - and with a motion sequence you can play successively different chords one after one.
3 - can also play 4 notes chords: 7th,...
PERFECT FOR REGGAE AND DUB

Merci pour votre attention.

Chestnut.

how do you sample step 9?

I'm not quite sure what exactly you're asking. What exactly do you want to do? There is a way to sample just step number 9, and that would be to manually hit the shift and record button (simultaneously) while a sequence is running in pattern mode, quickly pressing shift/record and than hitting the stop button once you've sampled the desired part. This is kind of tedious, but nevertheless easy and quite fast.

No, you set part to sound on step 9! Then after the third note in the chord (the 9) sounds you can re-sample so that you now have three notes recorded (poly) to one part! Like the OP said, it frees up a keyboard part and gives you more options :D
