26 2.8 The DRUM MIX key

26 2.8 The DRUM MIX key - adjusting the stereo drum mix To adjust the individual volume and pan settings for the stereo mix outputs, press the DRUM MIX key and this screen will appear: This is a graphic simulation of a 16 channel stereo mixer. For each channel, there is a four letter abbreviation of a drum, a graphic representation of a volume slider, and a graphic representation of a rotary pan control. Depending on the setting of the BANK 2 switch, either the first 16 drums (HIHT - PRC4) or the second 16 drums (DRO1 -DR16) will be displayed for adjustment. You can press the BANK 2 switch before or during the drum mix operation. To adjust the volume of a particular drum: 1. Press the pad of the drum to be adjusted - the small triangle will move to directly above the selected drum; 2. Rotate the DATA CONTROL. As you turn it, the graphic volume slider will move up or down, indicating that the volume of the selected drum is being changed. To adjust the pan position of a particular drum: 1. Press the pad of the drum to be adjusted - the small triangle will move to directly above the selected drum; 2. Press the CURSOR UP key - the small triangle will now point upwards, toward the graphic pan knob; 3. Rotate the DATA CONTROL. As you turn it, the graphic pan knob will move between one of 15 pan positions, indicating that the pan of the selected drum is being changed. Even though no soft key functions are displayed on the screen, there is one active soft key: If SOFT KEY1 is pressed, the mixer changes to a mode in which all drums are changed simultaneously, indicated by 16 cursor triangles across the screen. This may be a global level or pan change. You can change between level and pan with the UP an DOWN cursor keys. To return to normal operation, press soft key 1 again. NOTE: It is possible to select a special mode in which all mix changes made in real time while recording will be replayed on playback, just like an automated mixer. This is explained in section 6.9 of the manual entitled "Mixer modes, hihat decay thresholds, multi-pitch mode".

Section 2: The Basics 27 2.9 Playing the preset sequences To play some of the preset sequences included with the MPC60, perform the following steps: 1. If you have not already done so, load the preset sounds and sequences from disk as described in the section "Turning on the MPC60" or Section 7 - "Saving to and loading from disk". Make sure the STEREO MIX VOLUME control and your amplifier/mixer controls are set properly. 2. Make sure the PLAY/R,ECORD screen is showing. If not, press MAIN SCREEN; 3. Make sure the cursor is currently in the upper left field of the screen, entitled SQNC, and that the number in this field is 1. If not, press 1, then ENTER; 4. Press the PLAY START key - sequence number 1 should start playing in a loop; 5. Press the STOP key - the sequence should stop playing; 6. Press 2, then ENTER - the name for sequence number 2 should appear directly to the right of the sequence number; 7. Press the PLAY START key - sequence number 2 should start playing in a loop; 8. Press the STOP key - the sequence should stop playing; 9. Turn the data wheel (very carefully) one step to the right, which should cause the sequence number to increment to 3; 10. Press the PLAY START key - sequence number 3 should start playing in a loop; 11. Press the STOP key - the sequence should stop playing. 2.9.1 How to change sequences while playing It is also possible to change sequences while the MPC60 is playing. If you do, the newly selected sequence will not start playing until the current sequence has finished. When the new sequence number is entered, the top line of the screen will display the message: This indicates that the newly selected sequence (in this case, sequence number 2) will start playing once the current sequence has finished playing. IMPORTANT!: This process will only operate while the top line of the PLAY/RECORD screen displays the following words before the new sequence is selected:
