168 As the screen warns, loading this file will replace all existing system parameters with the newly loaded file's settings. To load the file, press . After loading, the previous screen will be redisplayed. Erasing files • If is pressed, the following warning screen is presented, asking you to verify that you want to erase the selected file: If you are sure, press , and the file will be erased permanently from the disk. Once erased, the previous screen is redisplayed. Renaming files • If is pressed, the following screen is displayed: Rename a file Rename the file:MY_FAVORITE_SONG.SEQ to the new name:MY SONG .SEQ The upper line shows the current name of the file. The cursor rests in the lower line, waiting for you to enter the new name. To enter the new name, use the same method as in naming a sequence:
Section 7: Saving to l loading from Disk 169 1. Turn the DATA CONTROL one step to change the alphabetic keys to their letter functions. 2. Type in the new 16 character name, followed by ENTER. Once the new name has been entered, press . The file name on the disk will be changed to the newly entered name. Once complete, the previous screen is re-displayed. NOTE: If you rename a "SEQ" file, then load it into one of the 99 sequences, the original sequence name (in the sequence name field) will NOT have changed. Only the disk file name is changed by the rename process- the internal sequence name remains unchanged. The same rule holds true for "SND" files- if you rename a "SND" file, then load it into one of the 32 drums, the original sound name will NOT have changed. For this reason, if you want to rename a sequence or sound file, it is better to load the file into memory then change its name while in memory (using the sequence name or sound name fields), then save the renamed sequence or sound back to disk. 7.7.1 Files which automatically load on power-up It is possible to create an "ALL" file or a ".SET" file (all sequences or all sounds) which automatically loads into memory when the power is turned on. For example, each of the four disks included with your MPC60 automatically load a set of sounds and a collection of demonstration sequences if inserted into the disk drive before the power is turned on. There are two types of files which can auto-load on power-up: 1. SET files: To auto-load a SET file, just place the disk containing it into the disk drive before turning the power on. The MPC60 will automatically load a SET file on the currently inserted disk when the power is turned on. Note: If more than one SET file exists on the currently inserted disk when power is turned on, the MPC60 will load the first one it finds. 2. ALL files: To auto-load a ALL file, you must change its name to "SYSTEM.ALL", then insert the disk containing this file into the drive before turning the power on. When power is applied, the MPC60 searches the inserted disk for a file of this name and if it finds it, it loads only this SYSTEM.ALL file.
