D-108 Owner’s Manual (Changing the initial setting <SETUP mode>)
Digital Output Track Setting ("Digi. out ? ")
This mode sets up the outgoing digital signal from the D-108 with what type and which recorded tracks. The D-108 can digitally
transmit the recorded audio as it is to external digital equipment. When you use this function, set the identical sampling frequency
on the external digital equipment as the D-108 sampling frequency.
* Initial setting : adat
* Available setting : adat, Lch 1 ~ 8, Rch 1 ~ 8
* This setting is commonly applicable to all programs.
* This setting cannot be saved or loaded.
* The setting is memorized even when the power is off.
Again, remember that you need to set the D-108 sampling frequency to match the
incoming digital signal sampling frequency.

Then, use the HOLD/> key or SHUTTLE dial to move to the
Rch. Using the same method for choosing the Lch, choose
the track in the Rch. If you choose normal numerical pairs
such as “L: 1, R: 2”, “L: 3, R: 4”, ........“L: 7, R: 8”, a two channel
stereo signal will be transmitted in SPDIF digital audio
format. In this case, the odd channels will be directed to the
Lch and even channels to the Rch accordingly.
You cannot assign the same track to both Lch and Rch. If you
accidentally do this, the Lch setting will be effective and the D-
108 will automatically cancel the Rch track assignment to “ - ”
as nothing is assigned. For example, if you chose channel 02
for both Lch and Rch and pressed the EXECUTE/YES key,
the D-108 would automatically assign as “L: 2, R: -”.
4-B. In the case that you want to choose an adat signal, when
the Lch display is flashing, choose “adat” with the JOG dial.
As you cannot choose “adat” while the Rch display is
flashing, use the HOLD/> key or SHUTTLE dial to move to
the Lch. All 8 track signals will be transmitted in adat digital
