Default Roland SPD-S - Qualms.

Hi, I have recently bought a Roland Spd-s and I was just wondering how you can make a sample go round on a loop without stopping so that you don't have to keep hitting the pad to make the sound continue? (e.g. such as a constant synth sound in the key of E)
At the moment I have played a synth into it but it only plays for the few seconds i played it in for.

Also, how do I make the other sound stop when I hit another pad with a different noise so that the two different sounds don't overlap each other?
Thanks.
Adam J D.

Default Re: Roland SPD-S - Qualms.

There are two main types of sounds on an SPD-S, a 'Single' WAV and a 'Phrase' WAV.

After you choose 'Phrase', you set the parameter to Loop.

That's the quick answer.

Although you should read through all of Chap. 2 on Wave Editing, look on pg. 45 of the manual for what I'm referencing.

Also look up 'Mute Groups' on page 36. Basically you make a set of pads part of a Mute Group (1, 2, 3). That means if you hit any pad in the same mute group, it stops the other pad that's playing. However the SPD-S will now play the sound assigned to that pad - unless there is no sound assigned in which case it functions just as a stop for sounds.
