34 3.1 Overview This

34 3.1 Overview This section describes functions which are used in the process of recording sequences. In this section you will learn: • How sequences, tracks and channels are organized • How to use the PLAY/R.ECORD screen • How to create both "drums" and "non-drums" tracks • The keys in the PLAY/RECORD section of the panel • How to record both a drum sequence and a multi-track keyboard sequence • How to use the TIMING CORRECT function • The TEMPO function • The WAIT FOR KEY and AUTO PUNCH keys • How to use the recording metronome • How to use the foot switches • How to see how much memory is available for new sequence recording • How to record Midi system exclusive data • How to transfer sequences to and from other sequencers

Section 3: Recording sequences 35 3.2 How sequences, tracks and channels are organized Sequences: The MPC60 holds 99 sequences in memory at one time. A sequence can be thought of as a segment of mufti-track tape of variable length. Depending on the sequence contents, it could be a 2 bar repeating drum pattern, an eight bar verse, or a 200 bar song with time signature and tempo changes. Normally, only one sequence may play at one time, unless the 2ND SEQUENCE feature is on, allowing two sequences to play simultaneously. A sequence has a format consisting of time signature and number of bars. If no format is assigned to a sequence, it is automatically given a time signature of two bars of 4/4. However, this default setting may be changed by pressing the EDIT key, then selecting option 2: CREATE SEQUENCE. Tracks: Within each of the 99 sequences are 99 tracks, which contain the actual midi events. These may be thought of as the tracks on a mufti-track tape recorder - they each contain a specific instrument or piece of the total arrangement, but all play simultaneously. For example, track 1 could be drums, track 2 percussion, track 3 bass guitar, track 4 piano, track 5 horns, track 6 more horns, etc. Each track may be either a "drums" track or a "non-drums" track, but not both. This is explained further in the section "How to assign drums and non-drums tracks". Channels: In order for the sequences to play external synthesizers, it must send its notes out through midi on one of the 64 midi output channels (16 channels for each of the 4 midi output jacks). On the MPC60, each track may be independently assigned to output its notes through any one of these 64 output midi channels. It is also possible to send the output of any track through two midi output channels simultaneously. Exactly how tracks and channels are assigned is explained later in the next section entitled "The PLAY/RECORD screen - the main operating mode of the MPC60".
