The explanations here apply to step #5 of the Basic
Procedure on page 234.
Determines the Sampling type. When entering the
Sampling mode from the Song/Pattern mode, the data
created by the Sampling varies depending on this setting.
Keep in mind that this parameter is ﬁxed to “sample”
when entering the Sampling mode from the Voice/
❏Settings sample, sample + note, slice + seq
Only the sample (wave) data is created.
sample + note
In addition to the sample data, the appropriate note data
for playing the sample is created and recorded to the
slice + seq
The recorded sample is automatically divided into “slices,”
and these are assigned to successive notes on the keyboard.
These notes are then automatically arranged in sequence
data (to the speciﬁed track) for playback.
This is especially useful for rhythm samples. For example,
if you’ve recorded a drum part, each beat of the rhythm is
converted to a separate slice and a separate note, and the
notes are made into a sequence. In this way, playing back
the sequence data plays the entire rhythm sample. The
advantage to this is that you can then adjust the tempo of
the sequencer over a wide range, and still keep the rhythm
perfectly in sync with the other tracks.
nDetailed settings (meter, measure number etc,) are
speciﬁed in the Slice display after sampling.
Determines the recording source.
Analog audio from the A/D INPUT jacks or mLAN
terminal (with optional mLAN8E) is recognized as the
The signal (already recorded sample or preset wave)
output from the MOTIF's OUTPUT jacks is recognized as
a recording source and “resampled”.
Digital audio from the DIGITAL IN terminal or OPTICAL
IN terminal (with optional AIEB2) is recognized as the
Determines whether new samples will be recorded as
stereo or mono samples.
The L-channel signal will be recorded as a mono sample.
The R-channel signal will be recorded as a mono sample.
The L-channel and R-channel signals will be mixed and
recorded as a mono sample.
A stereo sample will be recorded.
• Frequency (Sampling Frequency)
Speciﬁes the sampling frequency. The rate at which digital
readings are taken is referred to as the sampling frequency.
Higher sampling frequencies result in higher quality sound.
44.1k (44.1 kHz), 22kLo (22.05 kHz Lo-Fi), 11kLo
(11.025 kHz Lo-Fi), 5kLo (5.5125 kHz Lo-Fi)
nWhen the Source is set to A/D and the mLAN
terminal is used as an analog input, the Frequency
is ﬁxed to 44.1 kHz and cannot be changed.
nAt settings other than 44.1 kHz, the sound
monitored during recording may be different from
the recorded sound, depending on the source
