128 • The METER field:

128 • The METER field: This is a simulation of an analog record level meter. While this screen is present, the meter is constantly displaying the level of the signal at the input. The threshold setting is represented by a "T". If the range is exceeded, "!!" is displayed to the right of the full scale meter to indicate clipping. • SOFT KEY 1 - : Pressing this soft key causes the sound just sampled to be played at full volume. • SOFT KEY 2 - : Pressing this soft key commands the MPC60 to begin recording as soon as the threshold is exceeded. When is pressed, the lower two lines change to the following: As the seventh line states, the RECORD light will come on to indicate the threshold has been exceeded and recording is now in progress. Once the recording is completed, the previous two lower lines are re-displayed. If the soft key is pressed during this time, the "record ready" status is cancelled and the previous two lower lines are re-displayed. An example of sampling a new sound: The following is a step-by-step example of sampling a new drum sound: 1. Press the SOUNDS key, and the following menu will appear: 2. Select option 1, "Sample new sound", and the following screen will appear:

Section 6: Sampling and editing sounds 129 3. You must now decide which of the 34 drums you want to sample the new sound into (31 normal drums plus 3 for the hihat). Use the DATA CONTROL to select one of the 34 drums. As you rotate the knob, the NAME field will display the current sound (if any) which is assigned to the displayed drum. If you select a drum which already contains a sound, that sound will be erased from memory to make room for the new sound you will be sampling. As the warning states, once you press SOFT KEY 1, , not only will the displayed sound be erased (if one exists), but also THE ENTIRE SEQUENCE MEMORY WILL BE ERASED! This is necessary because the sequence memory is used as a temporary holding area for the newly sampled sound. Once you have selected the drum to sample into, proceed to the next step by pressing , and the following screen will appear: This is the main sampling screen. 4. Move the cursor to the LENGTH(SEC) field and select the amount of recording time you want to use for your sample. All sampling is done at the full 40 KHz sampling rate- no other sampling rates are permitted (This allows the circuitry to be optimized for full bandwidth recording). The maximum sampling time will be determined by how much memory is currently available. If the maximum available sampling time is not enough for the sound you are sampling, you must first delete some existing sounds from memory. To do this, select the EDIT A SOUND option from the SOUNDS menu. NOTE: Even though the MPC60 has a maximum total sampling time of 13.1 seconds (or 26.2 seconds if you have the memory expansion option), the maximum sampling time for a single sound is 5.0 seconds. If you are not sure how much time to use, use a little
