144 • The MIDI OUTPUT

144 • The MIDI OUTPUT field: This is the Midi output jack number (1 - 4) through which the sound data will be sent. Set this field to the number of the midi output jack you used to connect to the external sampler. • The FORMAT field: This is a choice field and has 2 options: STANDARD and 5900. Select 5900 if you are transferring to or from an Akai 5900 sampler; use STANDARD for any other sampler which supports the Midi Sample Dump standard. NOTE: The MPC60 can not transfer samples to or from the Akai 5700 or 57000 samplers. • The FREE MEM(SMPLS) field: This field is not changeable- it displays the amount of memory, in kilosamples, which is currently available to load new sounds into. You may notice that this number is different than the number shown in the SOUND MEMORY AVAILABLE field in the LOAD/ERASE/RENAME FILES screen. This is because this screen shows the available memory in SAMPLES (12 bits each) and the disk screen shows free memory in BYTES (8 bits each). The number of available bytes is always 1 1/2 times the number of available samples. • The DRUM and NAME fields: The DRUM field is used to select which drum (drum pad) the transferred sound will load into. The NAME field shows the name of the sound which is currently assigned to that drum. If a name appears in the NAME field, the selected drum is currently in use, and will be overwritten when the transfer is executed. If the name "unused" appears, the selected drum is currently empty. • The SELECT SOUND TO section: When is pressed, the MPC60 sends out a signal over midi to request that the connected sampler start transmitting sample data. This request contains two numbers, used to identify to the other sampler which sample to transmit: • The REQUEST CHANNEL field: Since many samplers may be connected via midi at once, it is necessary to request only one sampler to send its data at a time. To select which sampler receives the "dump request" signal, set this field to the same midi channel number as the receive channel of the sampler you want to receive data from. • The REQUEST SAMPLE field: Since a sampler normally holds many samples at one time, it is necessary to select which sample will be sent. The number in this field is used to tell the sampler which sample

Section 6: Sampling and editing sounds 145 to send. The range is 0 to 9999, although most samplers contain only up to 128 samples. • SOFT KEY 1 - soft key: Pressing this soft key starts the process of receiving an incoming sample dump. At this point, the MPC60 sends out a "dump request" signal to the external sampler to start sending the sample indicated by the setting of the REQUEST CHAN field. If it receives a reply, it starts receiving the data, and the 2 lower lines change to: The transfer may take as long as a few minutes. When finished, the previous screen status will be re-displayed. If a transmission error occurs, or if the sample dump is cancelled by the other sampler, the dump will be cancelled and the previous screen will be re-displayed. If you wish to cancel the sample dump, press the soft key. NOTE: It is not necessary to press to initiate an incoming sample dump. If the MPC60 receives a sample dump at any time, it will immediately display the "Receiving midi sample dump" message and load the incoming sample dump into the drum selected in the DRUM field. In this case, the REQUEST CHAN and REQUEST CHAN fields have no effect. Further, if a sample dump is received while the SEND MIDI SAMPLE DUMP screen is showing (described in the next section), the screen will immediately change to the RECEIVE MIDI SAMPLE DUMP screen and begin receiving the data. Also, the MPC60 responds to incoming sample dumps on all channels- it doesn't matter what channel the incoming data is sent on. • SOFT KEY 2 - : Pressing this soft key causes the SEND MIDI SAMPLE DUMP screen to be displayed, described in the next section. Pressing it again returns to the RECEIVE screen.
