180 them to play in

180 them to play in sync. Because of this, the MPC60 always plays from bar 1 when sync is first received, if this sync setting is selected. This code does contain tempo information, so the MPC60's tempo settings are not used when syncing to PULSE96. 3. SMPTE: This is SMPTE time code. It may be sent from tape or from other devices. SMPTE time code is a standard sync code used both in video/film and music. It has the advantage over FSK24 of containing location information in the code. That means, for example, that when you play your tape recorder starting at the third verse of a song, the MPC60 will automatically start playing from the third verse in perfect sync- it does not need to start at the beginning to play in sync. Also, SMPTE time code contains no tempo information, so when syncing to SMPTE, the MPC60's tempo settings are used- the difference is that when syncing to SMPTE, the MPC60's tempo setting is synced to the incoming SMPTE code, instead of being synced to the internal crystal clock as when manually played. So when syncing to SMPTE, always use the same tempo setting on each pass. To make this easier, use the SEQUENCE tempo mode which is stored with the sequence disk file. 4. MIDI TIME CODE: Midi Time Code is SMPTE time code sent and received over midi. This is a new code which is becoming very popular because it allows the advantages of SMPTE without the cost of SMPTE hardware. Incoming Midi Time Code is treated exactly the same as SMPTE. The only difference is that Midi Time Code cannot be recorded on tape, so it is only useful for syncing to other devices. However, there are conversion boxes available which convert SMPTE to Midi Time Code and vice versa. 5. MIDI CLOCK W/SONG PNTR: This is an abbreviation for "Midi Clock with Song Position Pointer". This is a sync signal sent over midi which is very common with drum machines and sequencers. Since it is sent over midi, it cannot be used with tape, but is very useful in syncing to other sequencing devices. Since this signal contains location information, you don't need to start both devices from the beginning of the song in order for them to play in sync. For example, when you play your external drum machine starting at the third verse, the MPC60 will automatically start playing from the third verse in perfect sync. Of course, in order for the MPC60 to receive the Song Position Pointer messages, the external sequencing device must be sending them. When using this sync mode, please check to see that the external device is capable of sending these messages, and is enabled to do so.

Section 8: Syncing to tape and other devices 181 6. MIDI CLOCK: This is the same as "MIDI CLOCK W/SONG PNTR° above, except that the "Song position pointer" signals are ignored. This setting would be rarely used. 7. 1/4 NOTE CLICKS: In the event that no sync signal exists on tape, this feature allows the MPC60 to sync to standard 1/4 note metronome clicks. To smooth out any variations in tempo, the playback is averaged over time. It is possible for the MPC60 to follow slight tempo changes, but larger changes will cause it to temporarily lag behind or lead. It is possible to use any clean signal instead of metronome clicks, but the signal used must be very distinct and short, such as a cowbell or closed hihat, and there must be a minimum of background noise. Adjusting the sync input level control will help to minimize triggering from background noise. Since 1/4 note clicks contain no position information, the first click received will cause the MPC60 to immediately start playing from the start of the sequence. However, it is also possible to set the MPC60 so that the first click received starts the sequence from a predetermined bar number. This is described in the description of the 1/4 CLICKS START AT field. There is an eighth setting, OFF, which disables all syncing to external sources. • The SEQUENCE STARTS AT SMPTE# field (appears in SMPTE and MIDI TIME CODE modes only): This field is used to set the incoming SMPTE time number which must be received in order for bar 1 of the sequence to start playing. Once the MPC60 knows which incoming SMPTE number plays bar 1, it will automatically calculate the proper point within the sequence to start playing when higher SMPTE numbers are received, and it will know not to play anything if a SMPTE number is received which is before or after the song. This field has five parts, separated by colons (":"). The parts are: HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS:FRAMES.SUBFRAMES "Frames" are the individual film or video frames. Depending on which of the four types of SMPTE code is being received, there are either 24, 25 or 30 frames per second. "Subframes" are subdivisions of 1/100 frame, used for very fine adjustment. At 30 frames per second, each subframe is equal to 1/3 of one millisecond. NOTE: This setting applies only to the active sequence - if you change the active sequence and return to this screen, the newly selected sequence's SMPTE start number will now appear in this
