80 LOOP is set to "OFF" in the PLAY/RECORD screen, additional bars are added to the end of the sequence as it is recorded past the last bar. This way, the sequence will continue to add bars as you record, even though the display initially shows "Bars: 1". As the screen states, the NOTE VALUE setting in the TIMING CORRECT screen is forced to "OFF(1/384)" during 16 channel recording. 5. While holding the RECORD key on the MPC60, start the external sequences playing from the beginning of its sequence. As soon as the MPC60 receives the sync signals, it will enter RECORD mode and begin recording the data from the other sequences in real time. Once the transfer is finished, stop the external sequences and the MPC60 will stop automatically, or manually stop the MPC60. NOTE: The OVERDUB key is disabled during this mode. 6. The MPC60 now contains the transferred sequence and may be played using the PLAY, PLAY START, «, , and » keys. Play the sequence- it the transfer was successful, press MAIN SCREEN to return to the PLAY/RECORD screen to edit the sequence as usual. If the transfer didn't come out as intended, simply try again by repeating step 4 above.
Section 3: Recording sequences 81 3.19 The "Analyzing sequence. Please wait..." message Occasionally, and very infrequently, you will see the "Analyzing sequence. Please wait..." message on the lowest line of the screen, requiring you to wait briefly while the MPC60 does some "thinking". This occurs only under the following conditions: 1. When you first select a sequence which is very long, then play it, then press STOP. 2. When you first select a sequence which is very long, then press any of the FAST FORWARD, REWIND, or LOCATE keys. 3. After you perform one of the EDIT operations. 4. In SONG mode, after you change any parameters in the song, but only if the song contains many different sequences. This waiting time is normal and is necessary in order for the MPC60 to create what programmers call an "index table" for the newly selected sequence. Once this process is done, all subsequent FAST FORWARD, REWIND, and LOCATE operations will be immediate, as will be all responses to incoming SMPTE, SONG POSITION POINTER, or MIDI TIME CODE sync signals.
