Because the unit does not default to Kit mode when it is first turned on, the [KIT] button needs to be pressed before selecting the Custom Kit.
- Press the [PAD] button.
- Strike a desired pad.
- Select a desired Voice either by tapping the pad repeatedly, or by turning the Data Dial.
- Repeat steps 2 - 3 for other desired pads. These settings are automatically stored to the Custom Kit location.
- Press the [KIT] button. The screen will display 'CU' for the Custom Kit, and it can now be played.
Selecting the Custom Kit after the unit has been turned OFF:
- Power ON the unit.
- Press the [KIT] button.
- Turn the Data Dial to display 'CU' in the screen.
WARNING: To retain custom data such as a Custom Song in the DD55 memory when the unit is unplugged, 6 'C' cell batteries must be installed.
