D-108 Owner's Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
88
Saving and loading data
The D-108 allows you to select the data (audio data and Setup data) from a current Program and save it to a
DAT machine as an S/PDIF digital signal or to an adat machine as an adat digital signal, or save it to a SCSI
device. You can also re-load the saved data to the D-108. In particular, using a SCSI device enables you to
save and load the data of all Programs (up to 99 Programs), as well as an individual Program. These save and
load functions are convenient when you wish to store Programs (complete or in progress) temporarily to a
DAT, adat, or SCSI device to clear enough space on the internal hard disk to make new recordings.
**********About saved and loaded data**********
The data format and time required to SAVE/LOAD song data will vary between saving and loading with a DAT
using S/P DIF digital signals, saving and loading with an adat device using adat digital signals, or saving and
loading with a SCSI device. Refer to the following explanation for more details.
S/PDIF digital signal (You can save and load each Program individually.):
Following about five seconds of pilot signal (shown in the diagram below), song data in the current drive is
output to a connected DAT. Two tracks of audio data (shown in black in the diagram) are output. To save data
from Real tracks 1-8, two-track data will be output four times, which takes twice as much time as the song
duration (ABS 0 to REC END). To save all data including Additional tracks 9-24, two-track data will be output
twelve times, which takes twelve times the song duration. Saved data is also loaded two tracks at a time.
adat digital signal (You can save and load each Program individually.):
After about five seconds of pilot signal (shown in gray in the diagram below), song data in the current drive is
output to a connected adat. Eight-track audio data (shown in black in the diagram) is output. To save the data
from Real tracks 1-8, data will be output once, which takes the same amount of time as the song duration (ABS
0 to REC END).
To save all data including Additional tracks 9-24, eight-track data will be output three times, which takes three
times the song duration. Saved data is also located eight tracks at a time.
SCSI (You can save and load each Program individually or all Programs at once.):
All Real track data and Additional track data is output simultaneously to a SCSI disk as shown in black in the
diagram. Therefore, saving and loading a Program takes much less time relative to a DAT or adat. No pilot signal
or beep is recorded. If the available disk space is smaller than the song data size, you may use multiple disks (up
to 99 disks) to save and load an entire song.
