62 • The TEMPO SOURCE

62 • The TEMPO SOURCE SELECT field: There are two tempo settings, SEQUENCE and MASTER, only one of which may be active at a time. This field is used to select which one is active: SEQUENCE: The SEQUENCE tempo is the tempo setting which is stored within each sequence. If SEQUENCE mode is currently active, then whenever the sequence number is changed, the newly selected sequence's tempo will become active. This is useful when playing sequences, for example, if you want each newly selected sequence to play at its own preset tempo. Also, only the SEQUENCE tempo is saved to disk when a sequence is saved. MASTER: The MASTER tempo is a single tempo setting for all sequences which is not stored within any sequence, that applies to all sequences. This is useful when playing sequences, for example, if you want each newly selected sequence to always play at the same tempo. • The SEQUENCE TEMPO field: This is the current value of the sequence tempo, described above. • The MASTER TEMPO field: This is the current value of the master tempo, described above. • The BPM/FPB field: This field selects one of two display methods for the tempo readouts: BPM (Beats Per Minute): This is the most common method in use to specify a tempo setting. Using BPM, the range of tempo settings in the MPC60 is from 30 BPM to 300 BPM. Beats Per Minute is also sometimes referred to as "metronome marking" or "MM". FPB (Frames Per Beat): This is another way of specifying tempo settings and is often used in the making of music for film or video sound tracks, because the tempo is referenced to the number of film or video frames which pass for every beat of music. Frames Per Beat is also sometimes referred to as "click". If the FPB setting is in use, the digit to the right of the decimal point in any of the numeric tempo settings indicates 1/8s- its range is from 0 to 7. There are four different types of FPB tempo, described in the FRAMES/SEC field below. This field has the same function as the "tempo display method" field in the PLAY/RECORD screen.

Section 3: Recording sequences 63 • The FRAMES/SEC field: This field selects one of four FRAMES PER SECOND standards, used to calculate the current FPB (frames per beat) setting. The four options are: "30" (30 frames per second, non-drop): This is the standard for black and white television in the United States. Using this mode, the tempo range of the MPC60 is from 60.0 to 6.0 FPB. This mode is the most common standard in use today for music production in the United States and Japan. "30 DROP" (30 frames per second, drop frame): This is the standard for NTSC color television in the United States. Using this mode, the tempo range of the MPC60 is from 59.7 to 6.0 FPB. "25" (25 frames per second): This is the standard for European television (PAL /SECAM standard). Using this mode, the tempo range of the MPC60 is from 50.0 to 5.0 FPB. This mode is the most common standard in use today for music production in the United Kingdom and Europe. "24" (24 frames per second): This is the standard for film. However, since film is usually transferred to video for scoring, the composer still works with the video standard frame rates. Using this mode, the tempo range of the MPC60 is from 48.0 to 5.0 FPB. • The TAP AVERAGING field This parameter is used in conjunction with the TAP TEMPO key. The TAP TEMPO key is used for quick setting of the playing tempo by tapping the key repeatedly in the time of 1/4 notes of the desired tempo, described further in the section "The tap tempo key". This field sets the number of repeated "taps" which must be played in sequence before the tempo is recalculated, so that successive taps are averaged to reduce any timing errors. The options are: 2 taps: The tempo is recalculated after only two taps. This should be used if your timing is very good, or if you want to only roughly set the new tempo. 3 taps: Initially, the tempo is recalculated after the first two taps. If you continue to tap successive 1/4 notes, the tempo is continuously recalculated by averaging the last three successive tap intervals. This is a good average setting.
