Rename Synths and Kits?

I notice that the manual indicates that sounds within Kits and Tracks within Arrangements can be renamed. Is it possible to assign a name to Synths and Kits themselves, rather than just seeing a numerical value on screen?
yes, in the arranger view, hold audition+NAME, hit enter on qwerty keyboard to rename clips, same in a kit clip to rename rows
Sorry I realize I didn't write my questions as clearly as I could have. I was asking if it's possible to rename Synths and Kits rather than just seeing a number associated with each. Thanks for chiming in originally either way!
Volsteh’s instructions are indeed how you name instruments and audio tracks within a song. In that particular song, the new names will be present in song and clip views.
If you want to change the synth or kit preset names for future use in other songs as well, you have to save the preset using save + synth/kit. You can then give the preset a name and then navigate to the old number version with load + synth/kit and delete it with shift + delete, if you like.
The first method is great for using generic descriptive names like “bass” or “drums” for quickly finding those parts of the song.
Second method is more about replacing the numbers with actual preset names like “Bassic Square PWM”
