adjusting tracks on toraiz sp16

Hello. I don't know why I can't figure this out but all I want to know is how to adjust a track on the toraiz. For instance I have a project set at 120 bpm, but I have a sample track that was imported at a 125. It is a loop on that track but when I follow the instructions that loop does not change tempo. What I am currently doing is going to the sample pad that I want to adjust, select edit, I adjust the bpm, yet it will not change. I have changed it many tempos but it will not. Any suggestions?

If I understand your problem correctly. You want to start at the HOME SCREEN, press TRACK button, select a PAD, the fourth knob under the screen is TIME STRETCH, turn it to M. TEMP.

I don’t stretch many samples, i assume the original sample is the same amount of bars for that duration. Play around with it, i think thats the parameter you’re looking for though. TIME STRETCH on the HOME SCREEN.

Hope that helps! I love the Toraiz SP-16! I hope Pioneer continues to development it.

This worked. I chose time stretch off because when I imported sounds that were at the same project bpm, they would sound really slow. I couldnt understand why this was doing this. So my next question is what is the point of the "edit bpm" button? Because that is where I was trying to adjust the bpm before but that button must be for some reason, correct. The button is, select a track, select "Sampling/Edit", select "Edit" to the left of the screen, a edit bar shows up with "BAR/BPM" what is this for if you don't mind me asking. Again, I really appreciate the earlier advice.

No problem.

EDIT BPM calculates the sample’s tempo characteristics based on three variables:

1. The sample length in real time is fixed, thats the actual length of the sample.

2. Beats Per Minute

3. Number of Bars

It’s algebra, two knowns and you now have the unknown. The first variable, sample length in realtime is known. When you plug in a specific BPM, you get the bars. When you adjust the bars, you get a new BPM.

Okay so that parts sort of obvious. I would say its there so when you’re working with samples that are not an even amount of bars, the TIME STRETCH function works the way it should.

To reiterate, its there so you have more control over the TIME STRETCH function. Sorry for the math lesson, but I was working it out in my mind as I explained it.

Hope that helps.

I have been playing a lot more with these functions. I so understand now. What I am doing now is sampling directly into the unit then adjusting the sample to the master tempo, saving then once im on the track screen, I select time stretch on. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out. I feel like once I got over this obstacle that I could start jamming out now. Take care my friend.

Not a problem. I have email alerts ON for the forum so i see every post.

I LOVE the SP-16 and i feel like the more people are active on the forum, the more people will buy the SP-16, and Pioneer is more likely to continue to develop it into the modern classic it can be.
