On the microSAMPLER, you'll use the keyboard to play samples.
The microSAMPLER's keyboard can operate in one of two modes: Sample
mode or Keyboard mode.
For an explanation of each mode, refer to "2. Playing samples" (☞p.15).
1. Loop playback
If the sample is set to LOOP ON, it will continue playing even after you take
your ﬁnger off the key to which that sample is assigned.
Hold down the [LOOP HOLD] button, and press a key to which the
sample set to LOOP ON is assigned.
When the sample plays, it will be held so that playback will continue
even after you take your ﬁnger off the key.
To cancel the Hold status, press the [LOOP HOLD] button once again.
Playback will stop, and the note will turn off.
Holding multiple samples
Hold down the [LOOP HOLD] button and press the keys that you want to
hold. If a key is already being held, and you want to add the samples of
other keys to the currently-playing sample, hold down the [LOOP HOLD]
button and press the keys for the samples you want to add.
Alternatively, you can hold down the keys that you want to hold and then
press the [LOOP HOLD] button.
Defeating the Hold status of a playing sample
When multiple samples are being held, and you want to defeat the Hold sta-
tus for just one of the currently-playing samples, hold down the [LOOP
HOLD] button and press the key of the sample you want to cancel. Hold
will be cancelled for that key, and playback will stop.
Editing a sample
You can modify each sample in various ways, such as by specifying how it
will play. This section explains how to edit the sample parameters, and
describes what each parameter does.
Press the [SAMPLE] button.
The microSAMPLER will switch to Sample mode.
Press the key to which the sample you want to edit is assigned; the key
LED will blink.
This key will be the current sample (☞p.18).
If the microSAMPLER is in Keyboard mode, the sample that you select
using the [SAMPLE SELECT ] knob will be the sample that is edited.
The key LED of the sample to be edited will blink.
Press the [EDIT] button to make it blink.
If the [EDIT] button does not blink, press it again to make it blink.
Use the [PARAMETER/FX CONTROL 1] knob to select the "SAMPLE"
Press the [EDIT] button to make it light-up.
The microSAMPLER will be in sample edit mode, allowing you to edit
the parameters. Select the sample that you want to edit.
Use the [PARAMETER/FX CONTROL 1] knob to select a parameter,
and the [VALUE/FX CONTROL 2] knob to edit that parameter 's value.
When you're ﬁnished editing, press the [EDIT] button to make it go
