Sample SLICE and SLICE+SEQ Sample functions

Sample Slice:
Slice is a function that is designed to make audio loops (up to 8 measures) work at different tempos without adverse pitch change (munchkin-ization). It accomplishes this by analyzing the audio and breaking it into smaller segments (slices). Each slice is mapped to the MIDI keyboard on successively higher notes of a single Waveform assigned to a Pattern Sample Voice or Song Sample Voice. A chromatic scale of MIDI data is created (in a Phrase in Pattern mode/to a linear track in Song mode) accurately placing the trigger notes so that when the scale is played back it re-assembles the audio slices. This is analogous to how individual drawings can be made to animate the movement of cartoon characters by flipping them slower or faster in front of a camera. The Motif can create up to 128 slices maximum – the number of notes on a MIDI channel. The Slice function creates a MIDI phrase to trigger the audio slices. A Phrase is a Pattern mode structure. In Song mode the data is written to a linear track.
