182 field. This setting

182 field. This setting is stored with the active sequence when it is saved to disk. • The SHIFT SYNC EARLY(MSECS) field (appears in all modes except SMPTE and MIDI TIME CODE): This field is used to compensate for any sync delays or delays produced by slow synthesizer attacks. It accomplishes this by shifting the MPC60's playback earlier by a specified number of milliseconds. If the sync playback appears to be late, adjust this field until the sync playback is exactly on time. This field does not appear when either SMPTE or MIDI TIME CODE is selected because these sync modes use the SEQUENCE STARTS AT SMPTE# field for the same purpose. • The MIDI IN field (appears in MIDI TIME CODE, MIDI CLOCK, and MIDI CLOCK W/SONG PNTR modes only): This field is used to select which of the two midi inputs will be used to receive the midi sync signals, input 1 or input 2. Normally, input 2 is used so that input 1 may be used simultaneously to receive midi keyboard data. • The 1/4 CLICKS START AT field (appears in 1/4 NOTE CLICK mode only): This field is a choice field and has two selections: BAR 1 and CURRENT BAR. It is only used when the sync input mode is set to 1/4 NOTE CLICKS and is used to determine whether the sequence will start playing from the start or from the start of the current bar when the first click is received. The two choices are: 1. BAR 1: The first incoming click will start the sequence playing from the start of the sequence (this is the default setting). 2. CURRENT BAR: The first incoming click will start the sequence playing the from the start of the current bar. • The SMPTE ACCURACY field (appears in SMPTE and MIDI TIME CODE modes only): This is a choice field and has 2 options: 1. EXACT: For all future recordings, use this setting. It provides exact conversion of incoming SMPTE or MIDI TIME CODE numbers into the tempo settings used internally in the MPC60. 2. BEFORE VERS 2.0: Before version 2.0 software for the MPC60, the internal SMPTE to tempo conversion was inaccurate by as much as

Section 8: Syncing to tape and other devices 183 40 milliseconds after 5 minutes. This caused no problem when using only the MPC60 for all sequenced overdubs to a recording. However, when using the MPC60 for some overdubs to SMPTE, and a different SMPTE to MIDI CLOCK converter for other overdubs to SMPTE on the same recording in (all at the same tempo), an inaccuracy would exist between the 2 units, causing them to gradually slip out of sync. This inaccuracy problem has been corrected in version 2.0 software. However, it is necessary to be able to select the older inaccurate conversion method when working with older recordings in which an MPC60 running software before version 2.0 was used to record parts in sync to SMPTE. If not, the new parts will gradually slip out of sync with the existing parts. For this reason, when adding parts to a recording in which existing tracks were already recorded by an MPC60 running software before version 2.0 in sync to SMPTE, set the "SMPTE accuracy" field to "BEFORE VERS 2.0". NOTE 1: Some existing devices which convert SMPTE to MIDI CLOCK signals have internal accuracy problems, including the Roland SBX-80. For this reason, when adding MPC60 parts in sync to SMPTE to a recording in which existing tracks were already recorded using a different SMPTE to MIDI CLOCK converter (all at the same tempo), it is still possible that the MPC60 parts will gradually slip out of sync with the existing parts, due to inaccuracy problems in the other converter. For this reason, it is a good rule to only use one SMPTE to MIDI CLOCK converter for all tracks of a recording. For example, if the SBX-80 was used on some tracks, use it for all tracks; if the MPC60 was used for some tracks, use it for all tracks. NOTE 2: The setting of this field only affects reading SMPTE- it has no effect on SMPTE generation. Further, the above stated inaccuracy problem never had any affect on SMPTE generation. Therefore, any SMPTE code generated by the MPC60 at any time, regardless of software version, is perfect. • The MODE field in the SYNC OUTPUT SETTINGS section (appears in all sync input modes): This field is used to select which of two types of sync signals will be output through the SYNC OUT jack while the MPC60 is playing. SMPTE time code is not output while the MPC60 is playing, but rather only while stopped - this is explained further under the soft key, below. There are two options for this field: 1. FSK24: This is a standard general purpose tape sync code commonly used in drum machines and sequencers. It
