This menu allows you to practice, record or perform live using your AX unit with your MIDI keyboard/controller. Opening this screen will cancel anything that is currently playing. Manually or automatically scheduled music is suspended while in this menu.
== Keyboard screen ==
The left side of the screen has
eight instrument selectors for up to two keyboards. On the right is a volume control slider for the ''inside monitor speakers '' only. Top middle are the recording controls. At the bottom, in the Settings section, is an Instruments button to customize the instrument selectors and an outside speaker enable switch.
The outside speaker switch is off by default, so you always enter the Keyboard screen in practice mode. You can play a live performance by turning the outside speakers on. You may record while in practice or performance mode. When you
play back your recording in the keyboard screen, the outside speakers are automatically muted.
=== Primary keyboard ===
=== Harp keyboard ===
Harp instruments are provided for a second keyboard channel, typically an alternate organ manual. MIDI channels
are set up in the Keyboard configuration screen on the AX system settings menu (not the instrument settings).
=== Recording and playback ===
To use the record feature, tap the record button (red button with round icon) to enable recording. Recording will begin when you play the first note. Tap the record button again to end the recording. You can listen to your recording before you save it by tapping the green play button; the red stop button will stop the playback.
==== Save recording ====
If you wish to save your recording, tap the
grey save button and type a title for your piece. If you do not wish to save your recording, simply record again. Any recording that is not saved and titled will be lost with the next recording.
=== Instrument Customization ===
