The recorded sample will automatically be assigned
to the index you created in step 1.
3 Repeat steps 1 and 2.
This is an efﬁcient way to record multiple samples.
With the default settings after the power is turned on,
the sounds you sample will automatically be looped
(1.1: Recording, Input/Pref page "AutoLoop (Auto
Loop On)" On)
To edit the loop and other playback address settings
for the sample, use the 3.1: Loop Edit, Edit2 page.
1 Select the sample for which you wish to make
To select the sample, use the "SMPL (Sample
Select)" or "Index" parameters of 3.1: Loop Edit,
Edit 1 page or of the 1.1: Recording, Sample page.
If you use "SMPL (Sample Select)" to select the
sample, be aware that the assignment to the index
will also change.
2 In the 3.1: Loop Edit, Edit1 page, use the "Lp
(Loop)" check box to turn loop playback on/off for
Looping will be turned on if the box is checked.
This will operate between the addresses you specify
in step 4.
Loop On: S→E→LpS→E→ (LpS→E is repeated)
Loop Off: S→E
3 Select the 3.1: Loop Edit, Edit2 page.
The waveform data of the currently selected sample
will be displayed. To hear this data, play a key in the
keyboard range that is highlighted in "Keyboard &
Index." Alternatively, you can press the [AUDI-
TION] key to play back the data.
In the case of a sample that was sampled with a
"Mode (Sample Mode)" setting of Stereo, the
waveform display will alternate between L and R
each time you press the [F3] ("L/R") key. At this
time, the upper right of the display will indicate
[L] or [R].
4 Specify the start address in "S (Start)," the loop
start address in "LpS (Loop Start)," and the end
address in "E (End)."
Select "S (Start)" (highlighted), and use the
[VALUE] dial or other VALUE controllers to modify
the value. The corresponding vertical line will
move. Set "LpS (Loop Start)" and "E (End)" in the
same way. In the example shown below, "S (Start)"
is set immediately before the ﬁrst waveform, "LpS
(Loop Start)" is set immediately before the second
waveform, and "E (End)" is set as desired.
By using the ZOOM ([F4] key–[F7] key) you can
change the range that is displayed. When "S
(Start)" is highlighted, zoom will be performed
from the start address (
If the "Zero (Use Zero)" check box is checked,
only those addresses where the waveform data
crosses the zero level will be found automatically
when searching, and can be set. This lets you eas-
ily make address settings where noise is less likely
to occur when looping.
5 If necessary, use the Utility menu command
"Truncate" to delete unwanted data that falls out-
side the start (or loop start) and end addresses.
Set the parameters, and press the [F8] ("OK") key
to execute the operation. (
For cautions on the "Save to No." and "Overwrite"
check boxes, refer to "About "Overwrite"" (
The grid display
The Utility menu command "Grid" overlays the wave-
form display with a grid based on the BPM tempo
value. This makes it easy to make loop settings that are
synchronized to the tempo.
In the same way, the grid display can also be used
in 2.1: Sample Edit, Edit2 page. The grid can help
you to edit the waveform in synchronization with
1 Select the Utility menu command "Grid".
