Belated thanks for this - really useful!

Anything that avoids having to search through the manual, which I have been doing as a new-ish user is welcomed. Am still exploring the depths of this excellent device....! Good work Arturia.

thanks Edouard  :)
I feel that the manual should be upgraded to v.2 as well, with info, how to use these new features.
