Before Starting
Time Base
The word “Time Base” appears frequently in this manual. The concept of Time Base is similar to a “tape counter”
on a conventional tape-based multitracker in that it indicates the precise position of the recorder transport
section (the current position).
The D-108 offers three types of Time Base: ABS (Absolute type), MTC (MIDI time code), and BAR/BEAT/CLK (bar/
beat/clock). ABS indicates an absolute time on the disk. MTC indicates a relative time that is obtained by adding
a certain value (MTC offset value) to the ABS value. BAR/BEAT/CLK indicates the position in a song created in the
internal Tempo Map according to MIDI clock and Song Position Pointer. The following diagrams depict the
relationship among these three types of the Time Base.
This chapter describes some basic items that you need to know before you start operating the D-108.
All users, including those who are familiar with using tape-based multitrackers and those who are new to
multitrackers, should read this chapter thoroughly to understand the functions of the D-108.
1. Time Base
2. Recording method and REMAIN indicator
3. Managing songs by Program Change function
4. Real tracks and Additional tracks
5. Input monitoring and playback monitoring
6. Audio file and Event
You can switch between these three types of Time Base
to suit your purpose. (Refer to the explanation in “Display
Section” on page “18” for more information on switching
Time Base.)
When BAR/BEAT/CLK is selected as Time Base,
the position for ABS 0 (top of the disk) is always “-2 BAR,
1 , 00 CLK” and you cannot modify this value.
