Operate Transport Controls and Pads While Sampling

Is there any way to operate the transport controls (play, stop) and/or pads while sampling?

I like to have my beat/pattern playing while I record myself playing an instrument. I take that sample and chop it up to use within the pattern. Without being able to play the pattern while sampling, this is much more difficult.

Being able to sample while using the pads would allow users to resample as well which I’ve seen in the requests section.

You can’t have the pattern playing when in sample mode but you can use the live looper bank to record instruments when the pattern is playing. Only in mono though. The live loops can then be saved as a sample and you can save it to a regular sample track.

Can I ask if you know about the same question except with a MIDI instrument? I ran into a similar scenario where I wanted to sample my Access Virus and I was playing it from the S2400 pads, but when I went into sampler mode, the pads became inactive.

I’m pretty sure you can only sample in sample mode.

What you could do is this:

  1. Record your synth midi into a pattern so it plays back.
  2. Solo the midi track
  3. Make sure you have the inputs set up and input monitoring on so you hear the synth being played back through the S2400.
  4. Use the bounce pattern feature

Finally got to try this out tonight and yes it does seem to work as expected. Thanks for the tip Melkerpertterson. I appreciate you taking the time to explain that to me :slight_smile:


Thanks, I had seen this suggested before but hadn’t tried it for some reason :man_facepalming:

The process is a little clunky but totally usable. I enjoy that the S2400 has a unique workflow. Cheers!

Are you talking doing this with the looper? or are you talking recording recording in sampler somehow with the sequencer going. Sorry its early… I could just be dislexic and slow…

He’s talking about the “bounce pattern” feature that allows you to bounce your pattern to a wav file.

Ok, I gotta look into that. I’ve been mostly just sampling in after I record midi through the looper. but this maybe better. I’m still getting to know this machine obviously. Thx.

The bounce pattern feature is way better imo because you don’t have the time constraints of 19s (iirc) that the live loops have.
