D-108 Owner’s Manual (Changing the initial setting <SETUP 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 “Digi. in?”.
The “?” display will start flashing. The display will also show
the current setting. In the case of the initial setting, it will
show “L: - R: -”.
3. Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The current assign setting on the Lch will start flash asking
you to choose the setting you want.
4-A. In the case of SPDIF signal input, enter whichever two
tracks you want with the JOG dial.
Use either the HOLD/> key or SHUTTLE dial to move the
flashing Channel display between Lch and Rch.
Available track settings are tracks 1 ~ 8 and “-” which means
no tracks are assigned.
You cannot assign the same track to both Lch and Rch. If
you accidentally do this, the later setting will be effective and
the D-108 will automatically cancel the previous track assign-
ment to “-”, so that nothing is assigned there. The later setting
will always be prioritized.
* The D-108 can also record only one channel from the
stereo SPDIF signal. For example, if you assign Lch to
track 4 and Rch to NIL, “L: 4 R: -”, the D-108 will record
only SPDIF Lch on track 4.
4-B. For an adat digital signal, enter “adat” with the JOG dial
after making the Lch flash with either the HOLD/> key or
You cannot choose “adat” when the Rch is flashing.
* For analog input, you need to select nothing on either
the Lch and Rch.
5. Press the EXECUTE/YES key to register the tracks you have
The display will go back to the display of item 2.
When the D-108 recognizes an incoming digital signal
correctly, the red “DIGITAL” display will stop flashing.
* If the red “DIGITAL” indication is flashing, check the
connection and cable between D-108 and the external
* If you set up the wrong sampling frequency for the
incoming SPDIF, the display will flash either 44.1k or 48kHz
on the FS indicator as a warning message.
* For adat signal input, there is no warning message
indication. Be careful of the frequency sampling setting.
6. Press the STOP button or EXIT/NO key to exit this mode.
* Press either the STOP button or EXIT/NO key to return
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.
* Vari Pitch function will be automatically OFF ( No LED
lights up), when you set up this digital input mode.
While a track is assigned for digital input, you cannot use the
same track for analog recording via the corresponding input
jack. When you finish digital recording, set the “Setting digital
input tracks” menu to [L: -, R: -] (no assign).
However, in other tracks not assigned for digital input, it is
possible to record analog signals. For example, if tracks 1
and 2 (L: 1, R: 2) are selected for digital inputs, then digital
signals in track 1 and 2, and analog signals in other tracks
can be recorded, thus making it possible to simultaneously
record digital and analog signals on all four tracks.
When the “Setup of the digital input track” is set to “adat,”
please note that tracks 1~8 will all be assigned to digital input
and thus, analog signals cannot be recorded in any of the
