It doesn't sound like the SPDS has on board editing, does it? Seems like you can sample and use it as-is, or put it on a compact flash card to transfer to a computer for editing.
Or sample into a computer, edit it, then put it on a CF card and transfer it to the SPDS.
Never had one though, so I could be wrong.
Editing samples on a hardware unit that allows it, is usually pretty tedious, but do-able.
