D-108 Owner’s Manual (Changing the initial setting <SETUP mode>)
Slave Mode Type Setting ("Slave Type ? ")
If you have set the Slave Mode to ON in the previous section “Slave Mode Setting”, you can choose what type of external sync signal
that the D-108 synchronizes to. This mode allows you to choose the external sync signal type.
* See Page "75" for MIDI synchronization for more details.
* Initial setting : Vari
* Available setting : Vari, SPDIF, adat, Free
* This setting is applicable song by song.
* This setting can be saved or loaded as a part of the song data.
* The setting is memorized even when the power is off.
* Make sure you choose the right program before setting up this mode.
* Make sure you choose the right sampling frequency before setting up this mode.
1. Press the DISP SEL key and choose the flashing SETUP
mode on the display. Then, press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The SETUP display will stop flashing.
2. With the JOG dial, choose “Slave Type?”.
The “?” display will start flashing. The display will also show
the current setting. In the case of the initial setting, it will
show Vari.
3. Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The current setting will start flashing which indicates it is
ready to change setting.
4. With the JOG dial, choose the setting you want.
“Vari” The D-108 as a slave will only rely on the
incoming MTC while synchronizing.
“SPDIF” The D-108 will lock to the MTC first.
Then, it will sync lock to the incoming
SPDIF digital signal.
“adat” The D-108 will lock to the MTC first.
Then, it will sync lock to the incoming adat
digital signal.
“Free” The D-108 will freely play back on its own
internal clock, after locking to the MTC.
* You need to input MTC from an external device to the D-
108 with any Slave type (external sync signal).
* The D-108 re-chase window is fixed to ten frames. That
is, an offset between the master device and slave device
exceeds ten frames, the D-108 interprets that as out of
sync, and tries to chase and lock to MTC sent from the
master device. (This operation is called “re-chasing.”) Dur
ing the re-chase operation, audio output is muted. If the
slave machine slips with MTC from the master device by
less than ten frames, the slave machine continues
running while recognizing the slippage.
* This menu is used to select a digital used for external syn
chronization when Slave mode in turned on. If you wish to
specify the type of digital signals to record, you need to
use the “Setting digital input tracks” menu.
* When you set the Slave type, the Vari Pitch function is
automatically disabled. (The [VARI PITCH] indicator turn
5. Press EXECUTE/YES key after choosing the setting you want.
The display will then go back to step 2 described above.
6. Press either the STOP button or EXIT/NO key to go back to
the normal time base display before entering the SETUP
* Press either the “STOP” button or EXIT/NO key to re-
turn from the second step menu to the first or to quit
SETUP mode. The menu will go backwards each time you
press either key so that you can correct the setting, choose
some other SETUP mode or eventually return to the
normal time base display.
* If you have chosen either “SPDIF” or “adat” as a sync
signal, the “DIGITAL” indicator on the display will light up
provided the appropriate digital signal has been input.
If the signal you input is not suitable for the setting, the
display will start flashing “DIGITAL” and “FS” indicator.
The FS means sampling frequency and it is only
applicable to the SPDIF signal.
* The digital signal used with the Slave Mode is solely for
sync lock. If you want to record a digital signal, follow the
procedure as described in sections “Digital Input Track
Setting”. For your information, the digital signal you set
with the “Digital Input Track Setting” for recording will
override and be prioritized over the external sync signal
which you have chosen this mode.
* The D-108 will mute audio for about two seconds when it
locks/unlocks the external sync source if you have chosen
the slave type to “SPDIF” or “adat”. To avoid this problem,
supply a reliable and stable digital source signal to the D-
