D-108 Owner’s Manual (Digital Recording)
Connecting an external digital device
* Connect the DATA OUT jack of the D-108 with the
OPTICAL IN jack of an external digital device using
an optical cable.
Data in the additional track cannot be directly digital recorded externally. In order to digital output the data in the
additional track, it must first be transferred to a real track (use the track exchange function). For an explanation of the
track exchange function, refer to page 73.
Digital recording to an external device
This chapter describes how to digitally record data from an external MD, DAT, CD-R or adat that is connected to
the D-108 containing the recorded songs. Two voluntary tracks from real tracks 1-8 can be freely assigned to the
L and R od the digital output for digital output to an external device. Further, the data of all 8 tracks can also be
output (when [adat] is selected). The current program is the program that can be digitally recorded. Note that
the “Digital Output Track Setting” is effective for all programs though there may be several programs set at the
ANALOG OUTANALOG IN
The D-108 switches the DATA OUTPUT connector
between an S/P DIF digital signal (Optical) and an adat
digital signal during setting of the digital input track in Setup
mode. Both signals use the same connector configuration,
but carry different data.
If the digital device has only the COAXIAL (RCA pin) jack as
a digital output, use an optional COP-1 (optical - coaxial
If you connect both the digital input and output of
the D-108 to those of an external device, a digital loop
might be generated.
Refer to “Connecting a digital mixer” for more information.
Selecting a playback program
* If multiple Programs exist, first select the desired
Program using the Program Change function.
• See page 24 for more information on Program Change.
Setting the sampling rate for a playback
* You need to set the sampling rate of a playback
program to match that of the digital device before
recording digital data.
When a digital signal is output from the D-108, be
sure to match the sampling rate of the external digital
device to that of the D-108. If the sampling rate setting
does not match, you cannot record the S/P DIF digital
signal and noise may be generated.
