D-108 Owner’s Manual (Changing the initial setting <SETUP mode>)
The Operating Clock Setting ("Clock Sel. ? ")
The "The operating clock setting" menu is used to setup the D-108 operating clock. When digital recording is to be made from
external digital equipment (DAT, adat, CD, MD, etc.), the input track is setup by the aforementioned [Digi.in?] (setup of the digital
input track), and whether D-108 is to be operated by the internal clock or externally synchronized with a digital signal from an
external digital equipment, must be selected. In the initial setting, it is specified for D-108 to be synchronized by its own clock
(crystal installed in D-108: Internal) to external digital input signals. The setup content of this [Clock Sel.?] will change partially when
the optional Model 8345 TC/SYNC card is installed in the D-108. For details, read the Model 8345 Operating Manual.

< Notes at setup of [Clock Sel.?] >
When a digital recording is to be made from external digital equipment (DAT, adat, CD, MD, etc) after
setup of the digital input track, digital input signals from external digital equipment cannot be externally
synchronized should the [Clock Sel.?] setting be maintained in its initial [Int.] setting. Therefore, in order
to digital record by external sync,[Clock Sel.?] must be set to [Opt.]. If digital recording is made while
remaining in the [Int.] setting, it could be the cause in sound deterioration. When D-108 is connected to
a digital mixer, in a system which could create a digital loop depending on the input and output connec-
tions, it is recommended to be used with [Clock Sel.?] set to [Int.] to prevent this digital loop.
1. Press the DISP SEL key and choose the flashing SETUP
mode on the display. Then, press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The SETUP display stops flashing.
2. With the JOG dial, choose “Clock Sel.?”.

If [Int] (initial setting) is selected, the D-108 will operate
using the internal clock.
If [Opt] is selected, the D-108 will will sync to an external

The selected operating clock will register and [?] in Step 2,
above, will blink.
6. Press the STOP button or EXIT/NO key to come out of this
The display will go back to the normal time base display.
* 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 nor-
mal time base display.
When a digital input track is assigned and the operating clock
set to [Int] (initial setting), if an external digital signal is
correctly input, [DIGITAL] will light in the display.
And, if the D-108 is set to [Opt], [DIGITAL] and [EXT SYNC]
will both light when a digital signal is input. This indicates
that the D-108 is in sync with the external signal.
