(32 second sample limit) - I had a discussion with someone who thought the sample time limit was no big deal if you understood how to utilize the arrangement features on the SP-16. We were discussing full length backing tracks as our project example. The 32 second sample limit requires a full length backing track to be chopped up into pieces and then reassembled onto tracks. I said that was an extreme mess of a workflow requirement but I suppose it was do-able. What I didn't realize at the time was how many sample tracks would be necessary to assemble a full length song. So, I decided to find out for myself. I used Frankie Goes to Hollywood "Relax" as my test song. I broke each section of the song down into clips - intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc. The golden question is how many sample clips did I need to assemble the full song? For this song, it was 12. I was shocked! Remember, sometimes you can not re-use a previous verse or chorus sample because there is new material added. I also found that the second chorus was 34 seconds long which meant that it had to be split into 2 samples! Geez. Food for thought.
