MPD32 random looping


I just got my MPD32 and have jammed with it twice. I put a bunch of clips in a drum rack and was on my way tapping out beats and sounds.

I started jamming by holding down clips of beats, ambiance, vocal samples etc which is fun but I am having a hard time figuring out how to set certain clips to loop over an over  while I play other clips live. I noticed that random clips will start looping (where I don't have to hold the pad down for continuous play) but don't know how it is happening.

So my question is:

How can I set certain clips to loop when I tap a pad and other clips to only play as long as I hold the pad down?


Thank you

    use the mpd editor and there is a selector for each pad called momentary/gate or toggle - check your manual. I can do this easily and better with the korg pad Kontrol where i can ALSO change the polarity of the pads where i can release the pad then the sounds come on and stay on or vice versa
