Magneto features a true varispeed tape system with pitch artifacts as the SPEED/PITCH knob is adjusted faster (higher pitch, shorter delay time) or slower (lower pitch, longer delay time). Pitch Quantize mode restricts the SPEED/PITCH knob values to relative speeds corresponding to the pitch intervals of user selectable scales.
Note: When Pitch Quantize is active, the SPEED/PITCH range is 2 octaves (4:1 speed range).
To select a scale, press and hold the TRANSPORT button and turn the SPEED/PITCH knob to scroll through the 15 available scales. The currently selected scale will be displayed via the four FEEDBACK/TRANSPORT button LEDs, according to the table below:
