In OS2 it was with the shift button but it doesn't do that here.

F6 EDIT > EXTRACT?

For the zooming part of editing a sample while playing, you mean when you go back to main screen then come back to trim screen? Cause that seem to be normal.
As for non destructive chop, the loop stops anyway.

When I'm in program mode in the edit screen F6+F5 become the PLAY & CHOP button.
When I deselect PGMMODE, SLICE and EDIT are back, but now the chop number at the top is gone and I'm not accessing the chops.

I've seen a video on JJ's YouTube channel where he has PGMMODE selected AND the SLICE+EDIT buttons are visible. I have no idea why I'm not seeing it. I've just got a standard issue Black backed 1000, not some weird one off prototype as far as I know.

I just tried zooming in edit while playing a sequence and it seems to be working now.
It may have been a problem with reusing PROGRAM templates that I made for OS2?

But I'm testing it now without any pre-created template, and I still cant get SLICE+EDIT to display in PGMMODE.

use play and chop... its the fastest way to date.

after you make your chops, go to trim mode and press f1.
you can then zoom in/out and fine tune the chops.
I dont love os3 v2 but this feature is killer.

It is an awesome feature, I like it.
Anything that speeds up the work flow removes a hurdle between you and creativity.
But people also do things differently and what might be quicker to some might be a hurdle to someone else.

Kind of like when windows 7 added "awesome" breadcrumbs, but took the up button away.
I dont see why we cant have both to suit the user.

And I've seen a vid of JJ on his youtube channel accessing the edit menu how I'm describing it as I'd like to do it.
Did he remove that function in the next revision after that video?

Man WOW haha didn't knew such a feature existed!
Definitely the best way to chop, thanks!

Yes, but I want to extract the chops.
Example, if I've loaded a 60 second sample and I've made four 3 second chops that I want out of it, I want to extract those and clear the rest of the memory.

So you offered me a solution to a function that you didn't even know existed.
Well that was off topic.

Solution relative to the amount of information you gave in the first place ;)
You probably noticed EXTRACT still exists outside PgmMode.

This makes your needs more clearly defined. I meant no disrespect. I don't think its possible with non destructive chop to extract the slices you want as individual samples. I will have a look at it in a little while because Im curious myself.

Remember though that OS3 v2 is different from v1 and some things didnt cross over. But to be honest I do not ever remember being able to extract anything while in non destructive chop. Regular slice mode yes but not NDC.

I apologize if I cant explain this well enough.

I have to admit that I'm mostly a plinker,
when it comes to drum machines.

I dont know much about the farther capabilities.

[MPC1000]
I've recently tried OS3 and decided that it's not for me yet, so I'm going back to OS2XL. Now I reinstalled OS2XL, but the samples in the programs that I saved in OS3 seem to playback at 1/8 or less of the original speed... Kicks now sound like drones, and rides like pads. The samples are tuned normally in the programs.

Has anyone seen this before? Does anybody know a way to correct this??

EDIT: Seems something has changed in the PITCH ENV settings in the programs... A simple matter of manually reversing all samples in all my programs... Good way to spend a beautiful Sunday :WTF:

Man, I gotta say, my mpc1000 was sitting collecting hella dust for 2 or 3 years while I used everything else but it,. I loved os2xl but not enough, but os3 is totally for me, I can’t get enough, it brings a fun factor, I **** love it...I’m ainting and screen printing my mpc right now and have been for over a week and can’t wait to use os3 some more.. I feel like it breathed new life into my mpc :worthy: :worthy: **** yea. Thank you JJ :worthy: :nod:
