Pa900 comes with 192MB of Sample RAM. This is the maximum
amount of Sample data that can be loaded or recorded.

The Time Slice function lets you transform a rhythm audio
groove in a series of single percussive samples, to be assigned to
the Drum or Percussion track of a Style or a Song.
How timeslice works
Analyzing and processing. This function detects the attacks (e.g.,
kick and snare) inside a rhythm audio groove (a sample that
loops a drum pattern), and automatically divides the audio
groove into individual percussive samples.
The divided percussive samples will be automatically assigned to
different keys in a multisample, and the multisample to a Sound.
Within the generated multisample, a separate sample is assigned
to a different note on the keyboard, starting from C#3. By play-
ing an ascending chromatic scale with this multisample, you
could recreate the original audio groove.
A MIDI Groove will also be created, containing a sequence of
notes triggering the sliced percussive samples in the same order
as in the original audio groove (i.e., it plays an ascending chro-
matic scale starting from C#3).
When you will import this MIDI Groove to the percussive track
of a Style (see "Import: Import Groove" on page 157 of the User's
Manual), this sequence will let you adjust the groove's tempo
without affecting the pitch of the percussive samples.
In addition to changing the groove's tempo without affecting its
pitch, this lets you do the following:
change the order in which notes are played
change the timing
edit the pattern notes to freely recreate a new rhythm loop.
Saving. After the slicing, you can select the Write command
from the page menu, to save the Sound based on sliced samples,
and the MIDI Groove containing the corresponding MIDI
• The Sound will be saved to the selected location in the User
area of the internal memory. You will be able to select it as an
ordinary Sound, and assign it to the Drum or Percussion track of
• The Multisample will be automatically saved to the next free
• Samples will be permanently saved to the internal memory.
• The MIDI Groove will be temporarily saved to the internal
memory, and will be available only when using the Import func-
tion of the Style Record mode (see "Import: Import Groove" on
page 157 of the User's Manual).
Warning: All MIDI Grooves will be delete each time the Pa900 is
