24 2. "16 TUNINGS": If

24 2. "16 TUNINGS": If this option is selected, the 16 LEVELS key will cause a single sound to play from all 16 pads, but at 16 fixed chromatic tunings, with the lowest tuning (-12 semitones) on the lower leftmost pad, and the highest tuning (+3 semitones) on the upper rightmost pad. If this mode is active and the pads are played while recording, these tunings are remembered within the sequence. After recording, the tuning of each note may be adjusted in Step edit mode. This is explained further in the Step edit section of this document. Use the DATA CONTROL to select which function you wish to use. Once set, your selection will be retained even after power is removed. When you've finished, press the MAIN SCREEN key to return to the PLAY/RECORD screen. To use the 16 LEVELS key (regardless of the selected function): 1. Play the pad of the drum you want to use. 2. Press the 16 LEVELS key. The light will go on indicating the feature is active. Now, the drum you played in step 1 will sound when any of the pads are played, but at 16 fixed dynamic levels (if "16 VOLUMES" is active) or at 16 fixed tunings (if "16 TUNINGS" is active). 3. To turn this feature off, press 16 LEVELS again and the light will go off. NOTE: The "16 TUNINGS" feature does not operate if the Hihat is selected. NOTE 2: The MPC60 performs its tuning all digitally without any distortion, but substantial distortion may be heard if a drum is tuned which was recorded at too high a record level. If you notice this distortion when tuning your own sampled sounds, the only solution is to re-sample your sound at a lower volume or to use a different sound which was not over-recorded. 2.7.2 The BANK 2 key The MPC60 may contain as many as 32 drums in memory at once, yet there are only 16 front panel play pads. This button is used to select between bank 1 (the first 16 drums: Hihat through Percussion 4) and bank 2 (the second 16 drums: Drum01 through Drum16). Normally, bank 1 is active. To activate bank 2, press BANK 2 and the light will go on to indicate bank 2 is active. To return to bank 1, press BANK 2 again and the light will go out.

Section 2: The Basics 25 2.7.3 The HIHAT DECAY slider & the AFTER key The slider controls the decay time of any notes played on the hihat pad, similar to how the foot pedal on a real hihat controls its decay time. Also, to add realism, one of three samples is played, depending on the position of the slider: 1. If a hihat is played while the slider is in the lower 1/3 of its range, a "closed hihat" sample is played; 2. If a hihat is played while the slider is in the middle 1/3 of its range, a "medium open hihat' sample is played; and 3. If the hihat is played while the slider is in the upper 1/3 of its range, an "open hihat" sample is played. It is possible to change the thresholds within the slider's travel at which one hihat sample changes to another. To do this, read section 6.9 of the manual entitled "Mixer modes, hihat decay thresholds, mufti-pitch mode". The decay information is recorded into the sequence with each hihat note, allowing every nuance of your hihat performance to be remembered. Normally, the WHAT DECAY slider has no effect on hihat notes playing back from sequences. However, if the AFTER key is pressed (and the light goes on), the slider not only sets the decay for all new notes played, but also overrides the decay of any existing hihats playing in sequences. Further, if in RECORD or OVERDUB modes while the AFTER light is on, the current setting of the decay slider will replace decay settings for any existing hihats playing in the active track. To activate the AFTER mode, press AFTER (the light will go on). To deactivate it, press AFTER again (the light will go off). Note: The RECORD and OVERDUB modes will be described in the next chapter, "Recording sequences".
