I would bisque to cone 04 at a medium rate. I only use the ramp/hold feature when the ware is somewhat think or I suspect it might not be bone dry.
With the ramp hold, I can add a segment for candling to make sure the ware is dry before continuing with the firing.
Use a medium fire rate for the glaze (^6) fire too.
I also use ramp/hold for controlled cooling on glaze fires.
Contact Skutt and they can send you a spreadsheet showing the segments for all the cone to use with the ramp/feature.
