Tape Counter and RESET Button
This three-digit tape counter provides a handy index of
tape position. It’s a good idea to write down the coun
ter readings for important points of a recording, so you
can locate them easily afterwards. The RESET button
resets the counter to “000” at the current tape position.
This is a useful function when used in conjunction with
the ZERO STOP switch to identify specific positions on
® Cassette Compartment
Your cassette tape is loaded here. Use
ity chrome (СгОг) formula cassette tape. Other tape
formulations will not provide optimum frequency response
and signal-to-noise performance.
A “lifter-tab” is provided at the right side of the cassette
compartment cover. Lift the cover using this tab. Hold
the cassette with the open end (the end at which you
can see tape) facing the transport controls. First, press
the rear edge of the cassette DOWN and UNDER the
central retaining finger at the rear of the cassette com
partment. Then gently press the front of the cassette
DOWN to seat the cassette in place. (SEE DIAGRAM)
Since the MT120S uses the entire width of the cas
sette tape to record four tracks, the cassette can only
be recorded on one side. Never change the TAPE A)
SPEED setting while the tape Is running.
MIC/LINE Input Jacks 1—4
These four input jacks accept signals from microphones, or
from line-level sources including, electronic keyboards, electric
guitars and basses and tape players. The four channel
inputs are standard monaural 1/4" phone jacks. When a
source Is plugged into one of these jacks, its signal is sent
to the corresponding channel of the MT120S's mixer.
@ PHONES Jack
Any pair of stereo monitor headphones with an imped
ance of between approximately 8 and 40 ohms can be
plugged into this jack. Headphone monitoring is the
most convenient way to listen to the MT120S’s various
signals. High-quality headphones such as the YAMAHA
RH5M or MH100 are Ideal for this purpose.
PUNCH I/O Footswitch Jack
An optional YAMAHA FC4 or FC5 Footswitch can be
connected to this jack to permit foot-controlled punch-in
and punch-out recording (see “PUNCH-IN/OUT RE
CORDING” on page 23).
©AUX SEND Jack
@AUX RETURN R and L(MONO) Jacks
The AUX SEND and RETURN jacks make it simple to
use an external signal processor (such as the YAMAHA
EM PI 00 Multi-effect Processor) to add effects to MT120S
signals. The AUX SEND jack should be connected to
the Input of your signal processor, and the output from
your signal processor should be connected to the AUX
RETURN jack. If your signal processor produces only
monaural output, it should be connected to the L (MONO)
AUX RETURN jack (see “USING THE AUX SEND/RE-
TURN LOOP” on page 22).
