jamman trick - c'est trés cool

je stumbled on an interesting jamman trick for those of vous with a midi
sequencer or controller capable of sending program changes.

je slaved my jamman to an mpc2000 and set the jamman to SAMPLE mode.
in this mode it doesn't "loop" continuously but plays whatever was
recorded into it (a single sample) using "triggers". le chose très cool
is that the sample can be switched rapid-fire between forward and

je joue la batterie (suis pas socialiste) so i played a groove in sync
with the sequence and had the jamman record a single bar (bar 5), parts
of which can play forward / reverse (anywhere after bar 5). 

comme ca (ASCII-ish):

                   record sample here
la sequence: | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 

note: a TAP prog-chg (=1) is necessary to open AND close the sample in
this mode, e.g. at begin of bars 5 and 6 to make a one bar sample. 

the sample can then be triggered by setting prog-chg=1 at various points
in the sequence. to reverse the sample before triggering, set

the whole thing gets a RECYCLE twist by syncopating the triggers - this
sounds pretty coll in a d'n'b way using drums or percussion as a sample.
