Are the extra shortcuts documented somewhere?

It seems to me that all shortcuts are documented in the manual except

Shift (near Wheels) + last B for select 2 or 4 steps encoders.

No?

Hello there, I just discovered that the Jupiter 8 has a special unisson mode: I thought this mode was always putting all voices of a synth together but the Jupiter 8 unisson mode is smarter than that: if you press 2 keys the synth will split the voices in two so 4 voices singing for each key.
Can it be possible to do that on the River Laurent?

PS: I discovered that around the 12th minute of this video -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3Hce30hF_8

Replace the glossy surface of the magnetic strip with a matte-finish surface. The current glossy surface picks up glare and reflections from surrounding lights and becomes difficult to read. I've experimented by simply applying a strip of 3M Magic Tape onto the existing glossy surface and it very effectively eliminates the glare. You lose a bit of contrast, but overall, it's much easier to read.

Jupiter-4 has 2 UNISON modes : either 4 voices x 1 note or dynamic allocation of voices / notes (like JP-8). Recent synths allow to choose how many voices are stacked in UNISON (2 to MAX) plus an extra setting like "allocated".

I would love all the Riverkey parameters to be accessible directly on the synth.
Opening the Riverkey editor on a Mac is a huge headache. And it doesn't always work.
I don't need to create profiles, I just need to manage all the options, like CV Clock etc.

Thanks Laurent, synthwalker gave the key notion here: "dynamic allocation of voices / notes"

Can it be possible to let The River define dynamically this allocation of voices / notes depending on what we play like the Jupiter-4 & Jupiter-8?

So without static and restricting setup in menus, The River decides all the time the number of voices to play analysing the number of active notes all the time. If we push one key, The River launches the 8 voices, if we play 2 notes 4 voices per note and so on.
How many voices if we play 3 keys?  :P It should be 2 voices for all 3 notes... or a smarter allocation than that, let's say  voices for 2 of these 3 notes played and 3 for the 3rd note.

If it's not already possible, that can be a really nice feature to add. As an option to give more possibilities with The River depending on the sound we are searching to reach.

Personally, I do not see the point of setting up this function. Let me explain. In the context of playing with chords of two or three fingers, as on a paraphonic instrument, it is useful but not transendent...

If I now pluck a two-finger chord with my right hand, I affect 2 x 4, I don't release, and I play a lead with the less straight one.  Damn, no more voices available, so I have to steal voices from a chord that is maintained. It's not nice...

So I could say, that I affect two voices or three voices, but always the same problem, if I hold the notes down.

So I'm really not convinced ;)

Now to be able to say that for this sound, each note has to be played in 1,2,3 or 4 voices is interesting. I just simulated it with two to four identical layers. Ok for next version (2.0x). When you push Unisson, you can select full or 2,3,4 voices....

Moog One has this feature. Turning on the Unison Mode lets you choose 2-16 voices per note. Being able to play chords with 2-3 voices per note is very useful.
