Ë “Shortcuts”
Sometimes it may be desirable to access an Advanced Feature more quickly than can be done by using the Touch Buttons
on the Information Center Display. Because of this, your Hammond Sk-series instrument has what are called “Shortcuts”
to many Advanced Feature Menus. You can “shortcut” to an Advanced Feature associated with a particular function by
pressing and holding a Touch Tab controlling that function.
Many, but not all, of the Advanced Features can be accessed via Shortcuts. In addition, a few Advanced Feature Menus
can be accessed only via a Shortcut. The different methods you can use to access a particular Advanced Feature Menu
will be explained in each section before explaining the Advanced Feature Menu itself.
Ë Using the PAGE NAVIGATION Touch Buttons
As stated earlier, the four Touch Buttons marked with arrows - PAGE UP (“>”), PAGE DOWN (“?”),
PAGE LEFT (“ ”) and PAGE RIGHT (“ ”). allow you to find the Advanced Feature M enus and features within each Menu
quickly.

Advanced Feature Menu screens as well as the Advanced Features within each. You will also have noticed that one
of the Menu choices will be strobing, or blinking “on” and “off” at regular intervals. This is to let you know which Menu
choice will be selected when you touch the ENTER Touch Button. The following pages explain this m ore fully.
Use the PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN Touch Buttons to select the A through F Menus.

and trucks.
To scroll backward through the Advanced Feature Menu pages, simply reverse the previous procedure.
To return to PLAY Mode, touch either the PLAY or the MENU/EXIT Touch Button.
