BEAT1 : Original wave size X N + (0.3 X number of slices)
BEAT2 : Original wave size X N + (0.2 X number of slices)
BEAT3 : Original wave size X N + (0.3 X number of slices)
PHRASE1 : Original wave size X N + (5.8 X number of slices)
PHRASE2 : Original wave size X N + (1.4 X number of slices)
PHRASE3 : Original wave size X N + (0.4 X number of slices)
PHRASE4 : Original wave size X N + (1.4 X number of slices)
QUICK : Original wave size X 3 + (0.7 X number of slices)
For monaural samples N = 5.5, and for stereo samples
N = 8. Also, the number of slices is doubled for stereo
With the memory expanded to the maximum 64
megabytes, for example, if the entire memory is empty
and a 44.1 kHz sample is sliced to 32 slices, the longest
possible sampling time will be
BEAT1~3, PHRASE1~4: approx. 138 seconds
(mono), 47 seconds (stereo.) QUICK: approx. 253
seconds (mono), 126 seconds (stereo).
