126 6.2 Sampling a new

126 6.2 Sampling a new sound This function is used to sample new sounds into your MPC60. The SAMPLE NEW SOUND screen: To access the screen used for sampling new sounds, press the SOUNDS key, then press `f to select the SAMPLE NEW SOUND option. This will cause the following preliminary screen to appear: At this point, you must decide which drum you want to sample into, because once is pressed, the drum you select and all sequence memory will be erased to provide maximum space for new sampling. If you have sequences or songs in memory which you do not want to lose, press the DISK key and then save them before proceeding. Move the cursor to the DRUM field to select the desired drum, then press , and the main sampling screen will appear: All sampling is done while this screen is showing. A description of screen fields and soft keys follows: • The DRUM field: This is the drum you selected to be sampled into. This only exists to display the drum, and cannot be changed from this screen. • The NAME field: This is the new name for the sound to be sampled. A default name of "SOUNDXXX", with XXX being a unique 3 digit number, is automatically inserted here. Once a successful sample is recorded,

Section 6: Sampling and editing sounds 127 the new sound should be named in this field. To name it, use the same method of naming as used in naming a sequence: 1. Move the cursor to this field. 2. Turn the DATA CONTROL one step in either direction to change the keys to their alphabetic functions. 3. Type in the new name. 4. Press ENTER to enter the name and to return the alphabetic keys to their previous functions. • The LENGTH(SECS) field: This field is used to specify the total recording time to be allocated to the new sample, in seconds. When this screen is entered, the value displayed here is always the maximum available sound memory. NOTE: Even though the MPC60 has a maximum of 13.1 seconds of sampling time (expandable to 26.2 seconds), the maximum for each sound is 5.0 seconds. Therefore, even if all 13.1 seconds of sampling memory is free, the maximum value this field will accept is 5.0. • The PRE-RECORD(MSECS) field: This field is used to specify a short duration of time which will be recorded before the record threshold is exceeded, so that the attack will not be truncated. Since this adds time to the beginning of the sample, it will cause the sound to be slightly delayed when played. To trim the start of the sample, use the EDIT A SOUND option from the initial SOUNDS menu screen. A good value for this field is 2 milliseconds. • The HEAR INPUT field: The signal from the sampling input is normally heard equally at the left and right stereo outputs, but only if this field is set to ON. If it is set to OFF, the sampling input is not heard at the stereo outputs. • The FADEOUT(MSECS) field: There is an envelope generator for each voice which is used to gradually decay the voice before it comes to its end. This field sets the amount of time over which that decay takes place. Since the decay will always end exactly at the end of the recording, this setting actually sets the position within the sound at which the decay will begin. • The RECORD LEVEL field: This controls a 99 level digital volume control for the sampling input. There is also a 3 position switch on the rear panel to select from 3 volume ranges. • The THRESHOLD field: This sets the threshold above which recording will begin once SOFT KEY 2, has been pressed. Range is 0-99% of full scale. A good setting to start with is 5%.
