Tags: sample,sp-505
The Chop function cuts loops into “slices” and places each slice on its own pad. Use the following procedure to chop a sample:

1. Select User Bank 1 as described earlier.

2. Press the CHOP button.

3. Press PAD 5.

4. Press F1 EXECUTE to display “Keep Power On! Processing Data...”

Note: The chopped sample plays back automatically. Each pad lights up when its slice plays to show you where the slices have been assigned.

5. Play the pads.

6. Press F1 to save your slices in the “Chop Bank,” or press F2 twice to return to the main screen without saving.
