D-108 Owner's Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
<The following items can be saved and loaded as song data>
Memory data: CLIPBOARD IN/OUT, AUTO RTN START/END, AUTO PUNCH IN/OUT point data
Time Base: ABS, MTC, or BAR/BEAT/CLK
Setup mode: * Time signature setting (BAR BEAT), * Tempo setting, * Click On/Off setting
* Preroll Time setting, * Midi Sync Out setting, * MTC Frame Rate setting
* MTC Offset setting, * MTC Offset Mode setting, * Rec Protect On/Off setting
* Slave Mode on/off setting, * Slave Type setting, * FS (sampling frequency) setting
<The following items cannot be saved or loaded as song data>
Auto Play mode and Auto Return mode On/Off
Vari-pitch mode On/Off, and pitch data
Setup mode: * Digital In setting, * Digital Out setting, * Bar/Beat Resolution On/Off setting
* Device ID setting
* You can save or load only one Program to and from a DAT or adat at a time. Use a SCSI device to save or load
* The D-108 can only save and load data to and from digital devices that support non-compression recording,
and S/P DIF or adat format digital recording functions.
Basically, any device that supports the adat format can be used for the D-108’s saving and loading operation.
However, for the S/P DIF format, you cannot use an MD or DCC that employs compression recording system,
a CD-R machine that automatically corrects the interval between Programs, or other devices that automatically
change the sampling rate. Devices with SCMS can be used if they satisfy the conditions described above.
Basically, any digital device that supports non-compression recording, and the S/P DIF or adat formats, should
be able to save and load the D-108’s data correctly. However, some devices may not, due to the occurrence of
multiple errors. The following Fostex models have been tested and approved for the save and load operation:
FOSTEX: D-5, PIONEER: D-05
<Note when saving data using DAT or adat>
Song data can be saved as a real track, additional track or ALL data. Please note the following points when
saving song data using a DAT or adat device.
The save time of the data depends on the time of the song data (ABS 0-REC END) on the real track. Therefore,
if you attempt to save data that exists on an additional track that is longer than the data on the real track, the
data on the additional track will only be saved for the same amount of time as the data on the real track.
Let's say, you have 10 minutes recorded on the real track and you tentatively move it to the additional track
(track exchange function). Then you save a real track by leaving that moved portion blank, which leaves you
with only 3 minutes of recording on the track. This means only 3 minutes of the data on the additional track
will be saved, and the remaining 7 minutes will not be saved. If you want longer save time, you can edit the
save time during save operations (Go to page 91 <Step 7>).
This can be done by either setting the save time to a longer save time (however, the maximum time that can
be edited is 59 minutes 59 seconds), or move the data with the longest recording time on the additional track
to the real track and then save that data. Be careful not to erase the data that you need on the additional track
when conducting these procedures. For more details on track exchange go to page 73.
