How Can the Duration of Samples be Controlled?

There are a few different ways to control the duration of a sample.

Use
# begin "0.5"
to change the start point of sample playback.  The value is a percentage of the length of the sample.

Similarly,
# end "0.8"
can be used to change the end point of sample playback.

# legato "1"
Legato can be used to shorten or extend the space the sample takes up.  A value of 1 means that the sample will take up it’s natural slot in the pattern and be cut off at the end of that slot.  A value less than 1 will shorten the sample and a value greater than 1 will allow the sample to take up more space in the pattern.

Legato can also be used to control the length of synth notes.
