Yes, this is correct. The B3s output waveform and so its tone quality is fixed. But this shouldn't matter for a beginner whose first priority should be learning to play in correct pitch with an elaborated aerial fingering technique and the second one learning to articulate the sounds with the left hand.

So, finally some years later, you might think about buying another instrument with an option to control the sound.

Just a thought on volume pedals. Yeah you can fade in and out, sometimes even fast. But it'll never be the same as plucking a note out of the loop. For any kind of music or sound work if you want a quick attack, at least get a theremin, not half of one with one antenna. And you could always just get a Moog, if I had to replace almost any instrument in my studio, it would cost a lot more then an EWStandard.
A thought Thierry gave me, at the beginning you can work both your pitch and volume hand, just separately not together, during practice, and if you have a daily play-a-long song that's fun, hey play it once at least at the end of your sessions and don't worry, use both hands and just play.

good luck!
