Specifying the length of the phrase to be recorded
1. Hold down the SHIFT button and press one
of the LOOP RECORDER BANK buttons.
2. Press the LOOP RECORDER BANK button
whose phrase length you want to change. The
selected LOOP RECORDER BANK button will
blink red.
TIP: If you want to cancel your selection, press the
same LOOP RECORDER BANK button once again.
3. Turn the PROGRAM/BPM knob to specify
the desired phrase length. The phrase length is
specified as a number of quarter notes.
4. Press the SHIFT button to return to the pro-
gram indication.
Phrase.length
4 measures
2 measures
1 measure
Half note
Quarter note
Eighth note
Sixteenth note
Thirty-second note
Sixty-fourth note
TIP: The maximum length of the phrase will depend on
the BPM you've specified. The maximum length will
be sixteen beats if the BPM is 108.5 or higher, eight
beats if the BPM is lower than 108.5, four beats if the
BPM is lower than 54.3, or two beats if the BPM is
lower than 27.2.
TIP: The phrase length that you specify will revert to
the default setting when you turn off the power.
TIP: If a LOOP RECORDER BANK button blinks or-
ange or green when you hold down the SHIFT button
and press that LOOP RECORDER BANK button, this
means that this bank has not yet finished processing
after recording, and therefore the phrase length can-
not be changed. Wait for the blinking LOOP RE-
CORDER BANK button to change to steadily lit, and
then change the phrase.
Playing a recorded phrase
Press the LOOP RECORDER BANK button
that you want to play; it will begin playing. To
stop playback, press that LOOP RECORDER
BANK button once again.
TIP: If you start playback from a state where all banks
are stopped, the phrase will start playing from its be-
ginning. If even one bank is already playing, the newly
triggered bank will start playing from the same position
as the bank that's currently playing ensuring that all
banks always play in synchronization.
Adjusting the phrase playback volume
1. Hold down the SHIFT button and press one
of the LOOP RECORDER BANK buttons.
The touch pad will show a bar graph for the
LOOP RECORDER BANK buttons.
2. Touch the touch pad to adjust the playback
volume of each LOOP RECORDER BANK.
3. Press the SHIFT button to return to the pro-
Display
gram indication.
Changing the length of a phrase
You can shorten the length of a recorded
phrase to loop it, or extend the length of a short
phrase.
Change the length of a loop recorder bank
that's already been recorded, as described in
"Specifying the length of the phrase to be
recorded"
If you shorten the playback length, the phrase
will play as a loop of the specified length.
If you increase the playback length, the phrase
of the specified length will play repeatedly over
the specified length. Here's an example of how
you can use this. Specify "L4" (one measure)
and record a rhythm phrase. Then set the
length of that phrase to "L16" (four measures),
and record a melody phrase.
TIP: If you've shortened the playback length, you are
still free to change it back to the original length. How-
ever if you record or erase on the phrase in its short-
ened state, the data will be recorded as a phrase of
the shortened length, meaning that the original phrase
data will be lost, and you won't be able to change it
back to its original length.
BPM setting during loop recording
The BPM value will be used for the following
parameters during loop recording:
If you change the BPM value, the change will
affect the playback speed while recording a
phrase and will be recorded.
