Reviews and questions about the entry-level MPC500

Just bought an MPC500 to complement my MIDI setup and I was wondering if the MPC has a feature to auto stop the sampling after a certain amount of time.

I use this all the time on my Zoom ARQ48: I set how many bars I want the sampler to record and it will auto-stop when it reaches the numbers of bar set.

If it doesn't (I couldn't find anything like this in the manual), is there any other way to have the sampler stop automatically?

For example, I've seen in the manual that there's a threshold function for making the sampler auto-start when the level goes over a set value, does it work also for stopping it?
Meaning that when the sound goes below the threshold it will stop the sampling process?
