• High-capacity sampling The sampler section at the heart of the MV-8000 features 64 voices of simultaneous polyphony. The unit is shipped with 128 MB of sampling memory that allows a maximum of approximately 24 minutes of sampling (monaural). You can add commercially-available DIMM memory to expand the memory (maximum 512 MB).
All of your working data within the MV-8000 can be saved as a “project” on the internal hard disk. A single USB cable is all you need to connect the MV-8000 to your computer, letting you transfer audio data between the MV-8000's internal hard disk and your computer.
The sampler lets you record audio material from the analog inputs or load Wave files (.WAV files) for use as “samples” --- the basic element of sound on the MV-8000. The MV-8000's sampler records at 44.1 kHz / 16-bit, delivering high-quality sound. Sounds you sample are held in the internal DIMM memory (SDRAM type).
MV-8000's internal hard disk The MV-8000 has an internal hard disk, letting you store a large number of your songs. It also has a USB connector, CD-R/RW drive, and floppy disk drive, giving you everything you need to exchange audio files with your computer, collect materials for...
Main Features Delay/chorus Delay/Chorus Reverb Reverb Chorus is an effect that adds depth and spaciousness to the sound. Delay adds a delayed sound to the original sound. You can use this effect either as chorus or as delay. Reverb is an effect that simulates the sound of a performance in an acoustically reflective environment such as a concert hall or cave.
The amp shapes the partial's volume. “Samples” are the smallest unit of sound data used by the MV-8000; they are digital data created by recording or importing audio data. You create a sample. Each partial lets you layer four samples (either stereo or mono).
Patches and Parts As the MV-8000 has sixteen sound generators (parts), can use sixteen musical-instruments (patches) simultaneously. Each MIDI track will play using the patch that is assigned to the part being controlled by that track. A part provides mixer functionality to adjust the volume and pan (stereo position) and the amount of signal that is sent to the effects.

MIDI Clip library MIDI clip library MIDI clip #001 MIDI clip #001 MIDI clip #100 MIDI clip #100 You can use the MIDI Clip library to save up to 100 portions of your songs (sequence data) for later reuse. For example if you have favorite phrases (such as a guitar chording pattern) or drum pattern variations (e.g., intros, fills, breaks) that you would like to use in other songs, you can save them in the MIDI Clip library and use the library as a scrapbook of MIDI sequencer data.
