Using the A34B Button
You can loop a section within a song by setting loop points using the A34B button. This
can help you practice a section of a song by having the JS-8 automatically repeat the
section over and over.
Here’s how to do this using the A34B button:

Select the song.
Press PLAY to start playback of the song.
While the song is playing, press the A34B button where you want playback to
begin. This sets the A point for your looped section—“A3” shows in the lower left
of the display.
Press A34B again when you reach the location at which you want playback to loop
around. This sets the B point for the loop, and the song begins looping within the
A and B points you’ve set.
To cancel the loop points, press STOP twice, and then press A34B until “ONE”
appears in the display.
The Phrase Trainer
The Phrase Trainer feature lets you slow down or speed up a song without affecting its
pitch. This can be handy for learning a guitar solo, or just making it easier to play along
with a song. Here’s how to use the Phrase Trainer:
