Fairly new at this mixing business, trying to learn the tricks of the trade and such.

Need to know how to set the volume for samples before I play the sample. The only way I know how to manipulate volume control for my sample so far is while playing the sample, hold down the Sample button, causing the button to blink which enables Sample Adjust mode, and then I can increase/decrease sample volume with the FX Ratio Encoder knob.

That however, takes way too much time. By the the time I get the volume level I want for the sample, it's too late, mostly due to me having to wait for the Sample button to blink.

Anyone have a solution?
Any help is appreciated
