[AKAI MPC] About each operation of TRIM. Activation method of Q-LINK

As I mentioned in [AKAI MPC] The steps that Sampling~Sound materials assign to PAD, you need to TRIM the sound materials if you rec sound materials from Record or other source. And you can use the “Q-LINK” if you have AKAI MPC that including Q-LINK function.

 

By the way, I mention about

  • Basic operation of TRIM
  • Useful TRIM technique with use Q-LINK

in this article. (I’m talking about those with AKAI MPC 2500 as an example.)

 

Basic operation of TRIM

paper-cut
TRIM can do 8 operations like the following.

  1. DISCARD
  2. EXTRACT
  3. DELETE
  4. SILENCE
  5. NORMALIZE
  6. REVERSE
  7. TIME STRETCH
  8. PITCH SIFT

 

DISCARD

DISCARD is probably the highest frequency function.

DISCARD is a operation that cut out between the Start point (St) and End point (End). Except cut out part are deletion. Then, date will overwrite.

AKAI-MPC_TRIM_discard

(St=B, End=C)

 

“AB” and “CD” are deletion. And, “BC” become a Sample.

 

EXTRACT

EXTRACT is mostly same as the DISCARD. But, in case of EXTRACT, cut out part is become a new Sample (Sample 2). Date will not overwrite.

AKAI-MPC_TRIM_extract

(St=B, End=C)

 

“AB” and “CD” are deletion. And “BC” become a new Sample (as Sample 2). Sample 1 as it is. 

 

DELETE

DELETE is inconceivably operation of DISCARD.

Deletion the selected parts, and put together front and rear of except deletion parts. 

AKAI-MPC_TRIM_delete

(St=B, End=C)

 

Selected part “BC” is deletion. Put together rear of “AB” and front of “CD”.

 

SILENCE

SILENCE is similar as DELETE. But, in case of SILENCE, selected parts are not deletion. Selected parts become a silence.

AKAI-MPC_TRIM_silence

(St=B, End=C)

 

“BC” become silence. But, it’s not deletion. Thus, “AB” and “CD” are not put together, and flow is become “AB”→”BC”(silence part)→”CD”.

 

NORMALIZE

NORMALIZE is operation that sound’s peak adjust to 0dB.

 

REVERSE

REVERSE is operation that reverse the before and behind of sound material.

 

TIME STRETCH

TIME STRETCH is operation that shorten or extend the sound materials.

Set initial sound material’s temp to “Original tempo”, and set temp that you want to set afresh to “New”. You can select the one that you like in preset.

 

PITCH SIFT

PITCH SIFT is operation that can change the sound material’s pitch without change the sound material’s TIME.



Useful TRIM technique with use Q-LINK

MPC2500-and-CF_card

(Q-LINK3, 4 of AKAI MPC 2500)

 

When you trim to sound material, you can select the Start point and End point with JOG wheel or number key. But, AKAI MPC that including the “Q-LINK” like a AKAI MPC 2500, they can do effective work with use “Q-LINK”.(Display the Q-LINK 3, 4 at above picture. But use at TRIM function are “Q-LINK 1, 2”.)

 

Select the Start point (St) with [Q1]

operation [Q1 slider] with push the [AFTER button of Q1],  you can adjust the Start point (St).

Better method is like the this. First, select the rough Start point,. After that, do the fine adjustment with JOG wheel.

 

Select the End point (End) with [Q2]

After the adjust to Start point with [Q1], next adjust the End point with [Q2] (or reverse order). Operation the [Q2 slider] with push [AFTER button of Q2], you can select the End point. After that, it’s same as while ago.
