MPC 1000 Troubleshooting

My MPC 1000 (JJOS 3.16) has maxed ram (128mb), but it's telling me I have an available sample time of 10 seconds. It's been a while since I've sampled a record, but I recall having something like 11-12 minutes available. This is fresh, with no drums, programs, or anything else loaded. What's going on?

Does that MPC have a variable sample-rate? That would be my first guess—if it's set to a really high sample rate it will cut back your recording time.

I got it. I guess at some point I (or one of my kids) accidentally scrolled the wheel on the sample length time setting, and it stays to whatever it's set at until you change it again. I really wasn't even aware that this was an adjustable parameter to be honest; I always start/stop the sampling manually, and I just figured it was telling me how much sample time was available with the amount of unused ram at the moment.
