[Note] The terms "channel” and “track”: In this owner's manual, the term "channel” refers to the circuitry and controls

required to process one input source. MTIOOITs mixer section has four “channels.” The term "track” refers to the

magnetic bands on tape used to store signals recorded by MTfOOn's recorder section. Since МТ100П records four

separate bands of audio on tape, it is a four-“track” recorder.


The INPUT SELECT switches are used to select the input

source for each of the four channels.

TAPE: Select this position to play back already recorded

material. When selected, mixer channel 1 will receive

playback from track 1; channels 2, 3, & 4 will receive

tracks 2, 3, & 4 respectively.

OFF: In this position, the channel receives no input signal.

MIC/LINE: In this position, the channel can receive a

microphone, keyboard, or other line-level signal

which is connected to the input jack.

[Note] All channels which are not in use should be set to

"OFF” position.

O MIC/LINE Gain Controls

The gain controls adjust the sensitivity of the channel in­

puts to accept a wide range of signal levels — from line to

microphone. The gain controls are used in conjunction for

the input faders to set the optimum recording level with a

wide range of sources (see "SETTING RECORDING LEV­

ELS” on page 13).

[Note] A gain control only affects the level of the signal

connected to the input jack.

® Input Faders

The input faders are used to adjust the level (volume) of

the corresponding mixer channel’s signal, whether it

comes from a source plugged into an input jack or from

the MTIOOITs recorder section. (The INPUT SELECT

switches are used to choose between the two.) The faders

are used to set up the optimum levels when recording, and

to balance (mix) the sound from the recorder’s tracks

when playing back a recording.

Noise and distortion are at their lowest at input fader level



The REC SELECT switches are used when recording to

assign (send) the signal from each mixer channel either

directly to the corresponding track of the recorder or to a

different track via the PAN controls (see “CHANNEL-TO-

TRACK ASSIGNMENT” on page 11).

[Note] When any of the REC SELECT switches are set to

a position other than OFF, the red indicator LED

above the transport REC button will flash, indicating

that the MTIOOn is set up to record. Recording will

commence when the transport REC and PLAY but­
tons are pressed simultaneously. If all REC SELECT
switches are set to OFF, the unit will not record even

if the transport REC and PLAY buttons are pressed.



N Controls

The PAN controls assign the signal from the correspond­

ing mixer channel to any desired position in the “stereo

sound field”. If a PAN control is set to the maximum

"LEFT” position, the signal from that channel will appear

only at the left-channel MTIOOn output (STEREO OUT L).

If the PAN control is set fully RIGHT, the signal will appear

only at the STEREO OUT R output jack. If a PAN control

is set to its center position, then the signal from that chan­

nel will appear equally at both the left- and right-channel

outputs, and the sound will appear to come from the cen­

ter of the stereo sound field, a point midway between the

two stereo speakers. By varying the level of the signal

sent to the left-and right-channel outputs, the PAN control

can be used to position the sound at any point in the

stereo spectrum. The PAN controls can also be used dur­

ing recording to assign the signal from several channels to

a single track of the recorder section, or to assign a chan­
nel to a differently-numbered recorder track (see “CHAN-
