Change of an active track
If F4 (Act.Trk) button is pressed, the display of "ACTIVE" will blink and it will become the change mode of an active track.
An active track will be changed if a pad is hit. (If F4 (Act.Trk) button is pressed once again, it will return to the mode of track mute.)

An active track can be changed even if it turns a DATA wheel, pressing the [MODE] button.
