D-108 Owner’s Manual (MIDI Synchronization)
Check chase lock
1.When the master unit (D-108 (#1)) is played back, MTC IN LED of the slave unit (D-108 (#2) and D-108 (#3)) will be
lit, "CHASE" in the display will immediately change from blinking to lit and chase lock will be completed.
Check that the MTC time on display are same in both master and slave units.
2.When the master starts recording, the slave will also start recording upon completing chase lock.
3.When the master is stopped, the slave will also stop as MTC from the master will be interrupted.
"CHASE" in the display will change from lit to blinking.
4.During FF/REW, the master only will be in the FF/REW mode and the slaves will remain stopped but when
playback/recording is started, the slaves will immediately chase lock.
* Should the D-108 fail to correctly chase lock and control, re-check the connection /cables and all settings.
Selecting a recording track
Select the recording tracks for both master and slave.
The D-108 re-chase window is fixed at "10 frame." In other words, when MTC of the master and slave drifts apart more than 10 frames, it will
assume that chase lock is disengaged and the slave will match the position again with the master (re-chase operation). During the re-chase
operation, sound output will be muted. If the drift is within 10 frames, the slave will recognize this and continue to travel.
Because the master supplies digital signal to slave in this system, re-chase is rarely carried out following chase lock.
1.Press the select key of the voluntary RECORD TRACK of the master machine and slave machine.
You can use the D-108 (#1) which is the master machine to put the record track of the slave machine in the SAFE/READY
mode. Conduct the following steps to do so.
* Press the SHIFT key on the master machine (SHIFT LED lights up).
The menu to select the ID number of the slave machine appears.
* Press the select key of the RECORD TRACK according to the ID number of the slave machine.
Exmaple: Slave machine = #2 (ID=01)
Press select key 1 of the RECORD TRACK to control the record track. [Slave Device 01] will lights up on the display.
This makes it possible to select the record track of slave machine #2 with an ID=01.
* Press the select key of the RECORD TRACK that is the same as the track to record of the slave machine.
Example: Press the select key of the master machine for 1/9 to put track 1 in the SAFE/READY mode. The record track of
the slave machine will be READY.
* After setting up the slave machine (#2), press the SHIFT key once again.
The KED dims down. Conduct the steps again in the same manner from step 1 to setup slave machine (#3).
