204 9.3 External drum

204 9.3 External drum triggering, the midi "drums" channel If option 2 is selected from the MIDI screen, the following screen appears: This screen has three main sections: The ASSIGN INCOMING NOTES TO DRUMS section: In the MPC60, it is possible to play the internal drums from an external Midi keyboard. This section of the screen is used to assign each of the keys on the incoming keyboard to one of the 32 internal drums. To turn this feature on or off, select ON or OFF in the INCOMING NOTES PLAY DRUMS field. To view or change an assignment, select the desired incoming midi note in the NOTE field (you can also play a key on the midi keyboard to set the value), then view or change its drum assignment in the PLAYS field. The default assignment for all incoming notes is NONE, except: NOTE: When playing the internal drums from an external source over midi, it is possible to either respond to incoming notes on all 16 midi channels (omni mode) or to respond to incoming notes on the "drums" channel only (normally channel 16, set in the "midi drums than" field). Here's how:

Section 9: Midi functions 205 1. To set the MPC60 to play its drums in response to incoming notes on the "drums" channel only (normally channel 16), select a "non-drums" track in the PLAY/RECORD screen (or set both CH fields to any channel other than 16). This works because the internal drum generator always responds to incoming notes on the drums channel, even if the active track is routing all incoming channels to the active track's assigned channel. 2. To set the MPC60 to play its drums in response to incoming notes on all 16 midi channels, select a "drums" track (any track assigned to midi channel 16) in the PLAY/RECORD screen (or simply set one of the CH fields to 16). This occurs because all incoming channels are routed to the active track's assigned channel, which is 16 if the track is a drums track. The ASSIGN OUTGOING NOTES TO DRUMS section: This section encompasses three fields. The uppermost field, MIDI DRUM DATA SENT OUT is used to determine what midi data is sent out when the internal drums play. It is a choice field with three selections: 1. NONE: If this option is selected, no drum related data is sent out over midi when drums play. If no external drum generator is used in addition to the MPC60's internal drums, this option could be used in order to reduce the amount of work the internal computer must perform, and therefore allowing the MPC60 to operate at highest timing efficiency. This is the default setting. 2. DRUM NOTES: If this option is selected, a midi note command is sent out whenever one of the internal drums plays. This should be used if an external drum generator (such as the Akai XE8) is being triggered by the MPC60. This setting requires the MPC60 to perform more computations internally than the "NONE" setting and therefore may slightly reduce timing efficiency in complex sequences playing at fast tempos. 3. NOTES/MIX/TUNE: If this option is selected, a midi note command is sent out whenever one of the internal drums plays, and also a special system exclusive command is sent out whenever a change in the stereo mix, echo mix, or tuning occurs. At time of writing, no products respond to these system exclusive messages from the MPC60 (other than another MPC60). This setting requires the MPC60 to perform more computations internally than the "NONE" setting and therefore may slightly reduce timing efficiency in complex sequences playing at fast tempos.
