MT1 ООП CONTROLS AND THEIR FUNCTIONS
[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.
O INPUT SELECT Switches
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
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
OREC SELECT Switches
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.
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-
NEL-TO-TRACK ASSIGNMENT” on page 11).
