Can you set Korg 1 pad elements to start on separate octaves?

OK - got a legit. Korg Legacy Wavestation and M1. Haven't started
on the Wavestation yet, wanted to get the hang of the M1 first.
I know how to
select sounds and make your own pad using a blank pad (INIT pad, they're called.) But all
the elements start on default levels, which are about the same.
Is there a way
of setting which range of notes a given element starts at? So for instance, pretend you
have a Winter Sweep and a Celestial Pad setup as one combi. Could you make the Winter
Sweep (for example) ALWAYS start an octave lower than the Celestial Pad (or a third lower,
or however many notes apart you wanted them) so when you hit one note on your keyboard,
you got the Celestial Pad starting ON that note and the Winter Sweep always starting a set
number of intervals BELOW that note?
Of course, I'd like to be able to do it
both ways so I could set a sound that by default is lower than one of the other sounds
I've chosen, to start a few notes HIGHER than the other sound if I wanted it to.
Basically, I'm after learning if it's possible to set where, sonically, a sound starts
playing from in relation to the keyboard note you've actually pressed.
got the manual, but I don't really know what I'm looking for in it and I've tried a bunch
of things out of the book but nothing's worked thus far! Just another dumb newbie, me.
I'm saying this in my other thread as well - a million thanks to all 7 people who
suggested places to find pads - I've got the Hollow Sun ones as well but I'm Korging
before I'm Hollow Sunning, as that means learning Kontakt too (mi brane urtz!)

I thought someone else would answer this.
Each Program has two oscillators.
You can choose the octave for Osc1, and you can use the "Interval" and "Detune" parameters
to offset the second oscillator. So flip to Program mode, init a patch, go to the "OSC"
tab, choose a sample for Oscillator 1 and Oscillator two, and change the Interval setting
to +3, for example, and you will hear your one note, two oscillator-interval patch.
To do what you want to do on a larger scale, flip to "Combi" or "Multi" mode, and
click the "MIDI" tab. Now you will see each of the 8 parts (and you can pick the sounds
you want on each) together with key zones, transpose and detune amounts etc. SO pick the
two sounds you want, and raise the "Tranpose" parameter over on the right of one of them
to +3, or whatever.
There are other ways of affecting pitch in the various
modes but they should get you started.
