130 more than you need,

130 more than you need, because you can always remove the unused portion later by using the EDIT A SOUND function. A good length for snare drums and toms is 1.0 to 1.5 seconds. A good starting length for cymbals is 1.5 to 3.0 seconds. To learn more about common sampling times for various drums, load one of the preset sounds disks, then inspect the various sampling times using the EDIT A SOUND function. 5. Move the cursor to the PRE-RECORD(MSECS) field and select a pre-record time of 1 millisecond or more. This is the amount of time which will be recorded before the record threshold is exceeded, preventing the attack of the sound from being cut off. 6. Move the cursor to the HEAR INPUT field. This selects whether or not the signal at the sampling input is heard in the stereo outputs. If you are sampling with a microphone in the same room as the speakers, select NO to avoid audio feedback. Otherwise, select YES to hear the incoming signal in the stereo mix. 7. Move the cursor to the FADEOUT(MSECS) field. This sets the amount of time it will take for the sample to fade down at the end of the sampling time. This eliminates the need to manually fade down the level at the end of the sample. Since the fadeout will always end exactly at the end of the sample, this setting actually sets the position within the sound at which the decay will begin. This setting may also be adjusted after sampling, both from this screen and the EDIT A SOUND screen. A good starting value for this field is 1/2 of the sampling time. 8. Move the cursor to the THRESHOLD field. This sets the audio level which must be exceeded before sampling starts. The range is 0 to 100% of the total input signal level. A good setting to start with is 5%. If the input signal has much background noise, you may need to increase this value. However, because of the PRE-RECORD feature, a high record threshold setting will not cause the attack of the sound to be cut off. 9. Connect the audio signal to the REC IN jack on the rear panel. Use a standard 1/4" phone jack here. However, this is a balanced input, so you may optionally connect a balanced signal if you have one. To connect a balanced signal, use a stereo (3 conductor) phone jack wired as follows: 10. Now, let's set the record level. First, set the GAIN switch on the rear panel. For most applications, use the LO setting. Move the cursor to the RECORD LEVEL field and set the record level by adjusting the DATA CONTROL and watching the audio level

Section 6: Sampling and editing sounds 131 meter, displayed to the right of the METER field. Set the record level so that the meter goes as far to the right as possible when the sound plays, but not into the clipping region (indicated by "!!" to the right of the meter, if full level is exceeded). If the meter does not go high enough with a record level of 99, move the GAIN switch to MID or HIGH. NOTE 1: During the time that the sample is being recorded, the audio meter does not function, so you must set the level before actually taking the sample. NOTE 2: Tuning in the MPC60 is performed mathematically, without distortion, by the custom LSI sound chip. Although this method provides a substantial increase in functionality and sound quality, it also can cause a very noticeable distortion only if a sound which was over-recorded is tuned, but only at certain tuning settings. For this reason, it is very important to set the record level low enough that no clipping occurs, because even though the distortion may not be noticeable when sampled, it may be very noticeable at a different tuning. 11. Now that all the settings have been entered, you are ready to sample the sound. To do this, press SOFT KEY 2 - . This will cause the MPC60 to prepare for sampling, and the lower two lines of the screen will change to the following: The MPC60 is now waiting for you to play the sound at the audio input. 12. Play the sound into the audio input. Sampling starts once the record threshold is exceeded at the audio input, indicated by the RECORD light turning on (in the PLAY/RECORD keys section). During the time that the sample is being recorded, the audio meter does not function, so you must set the level before actually taking the sample. 13. Now that the sound has been sampled, play it back by pressing the soft key. You may want to take another sample, changing some of the above parameters first. 14. Once you are satisfied with your sample, move the cursor to the name field and give it a name. By default, a new name has been given to it: "SOUND001". The 3 digit number in this name is
