194 8.7 Syncing to Midi

194 8.7 Syncing to Midi Time Code Midi Time Code is basically SMPTE time code encoded over Midi. Since it is a Midi signal, it cannot be recorded on tape, but it is used rather to sync to devices such as drum machines and sequencers. The MPC60 does not generate Midi Time Code, but does sync to it when generated from an external source. To play back a sequence in sync to Midi Time Code: 1. Connect a Midi cable from the output of the device sending the Midi Time Code to the Midi input 2 of the MPC60. (You may alternatively use input 1- if so, set the MIDI IN field to l.) 2. From the PLAY/R,ECORD screen, select the sequence which you intend to record to tape. 3. Press the TEMPO/SYNC key and the tempo screen will appear: 4. Set the TEMPO SOURCE SELECT field to SEQUENCE. This causes the MPC60 to use the tempo setting stored within the sequence, so that it will always be remembered even if the sequence is saved to disk and later recalled. It is important for the MPC60 to remember the tempo setting because the Midi Time Code does not provide its own tempo. 5. Set the FRAMES/SEC field to the same frame rate as the Midi Time Code which is going to be received. This will be usually be "30" for the U.S. and Japan, and "25" for Europe and the U.K. 6. Press the soft key, and the sync screen will appear:

Section 8: Syncing to tape and other devices 195 7.Move the cursor to the upper left field, MODE and select the option MIDI TIME CODE. 8. Move the cursor to the SEQUENCE STARTS AT SMPTE# field and enter the number of the incoming Midi Time Code location you want your sequence to start at. If you don't know, use 00:00:10:00.00. This will cause your sequence to start at a location 10 seconds after the start of the incoming Midi Time Code signal. This will allow you to record some additional parts to that first 10 seconds if you later decide to. This setting only applies to the active sequence, so be sure that the sequence you intend to use is selected before setting this parameter. 9. Press the MAIN SCREEN key. 10. Set all levels to record the MPC60 to tape. 11. Start the external device generating the Midi Time Code. Once the time code has played for 10 seconds (if the SEQUENCE STARTS AT SMPTE# has been set to 10 seconds), the MPC60 will automatically start playing from the beginning and will not stop until the sequence has completed. To stop it early, press the STOP key on the MPC60. 12. To shift the playback earlier or later by any amount, adjust the SEQUENCE STARTS AT SMPTE# field to an earlier or later location. NOTE: When playing a sequence from bar 1 in response to incoming Midi Time Code, the timing of the first note in bar 1 may be slightly late. To get around this problem, insert a blank bar at the start of the sequence (or song). This will cause the late timing to occur within the initial blank bar, so that the timing is stable well before the notes (starting in the second bar) start playing. To play back a "Song" (Song mode) in sync to the Midi Time Code signal: To play back a "Song" in sync to the MIDI TIME CODE signal, follow the above instructions, except select the SONG MODE screen before receiving the SMPTE signal. This way, the active song will play instead of the active sequence. To set the starting SMPTE number for the song, use the SONG STARTS AT SMPTE# field in the Song screen.
