By selecting “Practice Start” from the music selector, you can repeatedly practice any part within the a song.
Through “Start Time Configuration,” you can freely configure the starting position of the song. You can also adjust the song’s starting position during gameplay, as well as restart the tempo at the press of a button.

Through “PV Appreciation,” you can enjoy the game’s music videos. In addition to PlayStation 4’s Share capabilities, there is also an exclusive photographing function that lets you press the triangle button to take a photo during the music video. The photographs you take can be used as loading screen backgrounds for the game, as well as viewed and shared from PlayStation 4’s Capture Gallery.
