Sampling mode
238
Time Slice
Metronome Information
Meter
Use this parameter to specify the Meter of the original sample.
Measures
Use this parameter to specify the number of measures of the
original sample. Usually, you will load a groove 1- or 2-measures
long.
BPM
This parameter specifies the tempo (in Beats Per Minute) of the
original sample. Pa900 automatically calculates this value based
on the Start, End (see page 233), Meter and Measures parame-
ters.
The BPM can be only adjusted to values lower than the one auto-
matically calculated. This can be useful, for example, when the
actual sample is shorter than the entered Meter and Measures
values.
Meas.1
In the above example, the actual groove lasts only up to the first
half of Measure 2. The recognized tempo is 130, while the real
tempo is 100. Set the BPM value to 100, and a rest will be added
to the end of the groove, to allow it to loop seamlessly.
Time Slice
See "The Time Slice procedure" on page 239 for more information.
Release
Adjust the value of this parameter to change the number of rec-
ognized attacks, by varying the speed needed to the Slice engine
to start working again. For example, in the following example, if
the Release value is too high (i.e., too long), the second attack
may be lost:
Note: After changing the Release value, you must select the Slice
command again.
Threshold
This parameter varies the threshold over which the attacks are
recognized (i.e., the Time Slice sensitivity). If it is too low, weaker
attacks may be ignored.
Note: After changing the Threshold value, you are not obliged to
select the Slice command again. The Slices value is immediately
changed.
Attacks
This (non-editable) parameter shows the number of attacks rec-
ognized. More than one attack may be recognized in a single
slice. Adjust the Release and Threshold parameters to change the
number of recognized attacks.
Meas.2
Slices
This (non-editable) parameter shows the number of generated
slices, i.e. generated samples and notes in the midifile. To change
this value, edit the Release and Threshold parameters.
Note: You can have a maximum of 100 slices.
Slice
Select this command to execute the Slice after entering the Time
Slice page, or changing the Release value. This command is
"ghosted" (i.e., non-selectable) if no sample has been recorded of
loaded yet.
The Time Slice operation is executed on the sample, from the
"Start" to the "End" point set in the Sample Edit / Sample Record
section.
Extend
See "The Extend procedure" on page 240 for more information.
When using a sliced groove with a tempo slower than the origi-
nal, an annoying gap may be heard between a sample and the
following one. The Extend function allows you to fix this prob-
lem by adding a "tail" to all samples, making their decay
smoother and more musical.
Before extending...
...and after extending...
Note: You can use the Extend function only after a Time Slice
operation.
Note: The Extend function increases the original sample size.
By
Use this parameter to set the length of the "tail" added to the
samples (in percentage). The higher this value, the greater the
size of the samples. A setting of 20-30% is usually suitable to
most grooves.
Caveat: With higher "By" values, the Extend function may add
audible artifacts.
Mode
This parameter specifies if the added "tail" must decay in a linear
way, or sustain for a longer time and then fall suddenly.
Normal
This option is most suitable for percussive sound
with a short (but not immediate) decay. The "tail"
envelope is linear, and the level decays fast.
Added "tail"
