Here's a trick that is helpful when tracking out to the computer or to set up sections where certain parts drop out of your track:
for your effect, set it to volume/bass boost. set the pads you want to mute by making the effect apply to those. set the volume to 0 (the wheel, i believe, not the knob.) now, when you tap the effect on, those samples will be muted while you press that button. also experiment with this rhythmically to gate a longer sample a la a dj w/ a cross fader.
