Re: Sp-202 loop pop

I beg to differ my friend. The SP303 is a far better machine, than the SP 202. The SP 202 uses the Smartmedia card for RAM purposes. Storage and backup only, the sounds can not be loaded to the card for edit.

yeah, what your getting is a pop due to a sudden change in frequency because
you've cut a waveform at a point where it isn't at "zero" This is called the
zerocrossing point. You're probably better off sampling it into a computer
and using a decent audio editor to either fix the loop in and out points, or
do a very quick fade to nothing at the begining and end of the loop. Then,
use a smart media reader/writer to put it on the Flash card that goes into
the 202. I have the 303, but I imagine the 202 works pretty similarly.
Another way of doing it is to use the fine loop length control to try and get
at a point where the sound is at "zero" There should be specific
instructions in your manual.
