40 section 4.3.10

40 section 4.3.10 "Changing the velocity or duration of a group of notes after recording". • The PROG field: This field permits a midi program number (1-128) to be assigned to the active track. Each track may have a unique program number assigned to it. To assign a program number for the active track, enter the desired number into the PROG field. To select no program assignment for the active track, enter a "0" in this field. Whenever a sequence is selected in the SQNC field (before the sequence is played), the assigned program number for each track is immediately sent out over the track's midi channel to the external synthesizer, causing it to change to the assigned program number. This way, all external synthesizers are immediately changed to the correct program numbers by merely selecting the sequence. NOTE 1: It is also possible to record midi PROGRAM CHANGE events at any location within a track, either in real time or in STEP EDIT mode. (See STEP EDIT for more details about this.) It is important to note that if one of these PROGRAM CHANGE events is inserted in mid-sequence and the portion of the sequence containing the change is played (causing the external synthesizer to change to the new program), the original program number (as set up in the PROG field) will not be re-sent over midi until the sequence is reselected in the SQNC field. Simply restarting the sequence will no implement the program change. If the MPC60 did send out all assigned program numbers whenever PLAY START was pressed, this problem would be corrected, but there would also be a brief delay at the start of the sequence because the external synthesizers must take time to change their program data. If you do want a program change to be sent out whenever PLAY START is pressed, it is better to insert a midi PROGRAM CHANGE event at the start of the track, using STEP EDIT. NOTE 2: If a sequence containing these program assignments is played in SONG MODE, the sequence's program assignments are sent out at the moment that the sequence starts to play in the song. This can present a problem because most synthesizers require a brief time delay while changing programs, and this delay time will cause any notes existing at the start of the new sequence to be delayed. This delay is brief in most synthesizers, but is usually enough to cause a timing irregularity at the start of the sequence. To avoid this problem, don't assign any program changes to sequences which you are using in SONG MODE. If you need to use program changes within the song, make sure that no notes exist at the start of the sequences containing the program changes. Another alternative is to insert Midi PROGRAM CHANGE events within sequences in the song at locations where no notes exist. This same problem exists when manually changing sequences while playing (see section 2.9.1 "Changing sequences while playing") and can be corrected in the same way.

Section 3: Recording sequences 41 • The NOW field This field displays the current position within the sequence simultaneously both in musical terms and as a SMPTE number. The left side of this field shows the current position in musical terms - as a 3 part number separated by decimal points. The first part is the bar number; the second is the "beat" number within the bar (the beat is equal to the denominator of the time signature); and the third is the "clock" number within the beat (there are 96 clocks to a quarter note). Bars and Beats start at 1; Clocks start at 0. To the right of the above described BAR.BEAT.CLOCK number is another 4 part number, displayed in parentheses. This field displays the current position of the sequence as a function of elapsed time from the beginning of the sequence, in HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS:FRAMES. However, the number displayed when the sequence is set to the start is not necessarily 00:00:00:00, but rather is equal to the number entered in the "Sequence Starts at SMPTE#" field in the SYNC screen. These 2 fields cannot be changed by directly entering numbers -the cursor will not move to this field. This field is normally changed by using the , « , and » keys, or the LOCATE function, described in another section. Also, these fields change in real time while the sequence plays. However, the rightmost part of each field - the "clocks" and "frames" parts - are replaced with 2 dashes ("-") while playing because they would otherwise change too quickly to be useful. The 4 SOFT KEYS: • SOFT KEY 1 - : This soft key acts as a "mute on/off switch for the active track. Pressing SOFT KEY 1 changes from to , and pressing it again changes it back. When set to ON, the active track plays; when set to OFF, the track doesn't play. • SOFT KEY 2 -: Pressing this soft key turns SOLO mode ON or OFF. If set to ON, only the active track is heard, as all other tracks are temporarily muted. • SOFT KEY 3 - : Pressing this soft key alternates between the 2 tempo modes used in the MPC60: MASTER (MAS) and SEQUENCE (SEQ). These two tempo modes are explained in section 3.9.1, "The tempo screen".This is useful, for example, to quickly alternate between a normal play tempo and a slower tempo when recording. • SOFT KEY 4 - : This function is used to rearrange the order of the tracks. Pressing this soft key displays the following screen:
