RECORDING THE FIRST TRACK
STEP 1: CHANNEL-TO-TRACK ASSIGNMENT
The first step in making any recording is to assign the channel to which your instrument or other source is connected to one
of the recorder’s tracks.
Depending on what you are recording, you might want to record a single instrument or other source on a single track of the
tape, or you might want to combine several instruments or other sources and record them on a single track. The MT120S
offers two “channel-to-track assignment” methods.
Direct Channel-to-Track Assignment
With this method, an instrument or source connected to
one of the mixer’s channels is fed directly to the corre
spondingly numbered track of the recorder. You can record
a single track like this, or up to all four tracks simultaneously,
^sing this method, only one input source can be recorded
Pi a single track.
For direct channel-to-track assignment, the REC SELECT
switches are set to the "number" position (1,2, 3 or 4). For
example, if the channel 1 REC SELECT switch is set to
"1,” the channel 1 signal will be sent directly to track 1 of
the recorder. This applies in the same way to all other
channels and tracks.
Panned Channet-to-Track Assignment
The panned channel-to-track assignment method makes it
possible to assign several of the mixer’s channels to a
single recorder track, or single mixer channels can be
assigned to a track of a different numbers.
Each of the REC SELECT switches has either an “L” or “R”
position. These correspond to the left (L) and right (R)
channels of the mixer’s stereo output. If track 1’s REC
SELECT switch is set to "L” for example, track 1 will
receive any signals which are “panned” LEFT. Therefore,
it is possible to send the signal from channel 1 to track 4
by selecting “R” on track 4’s REC SELECT switch and
panning channel 1 RIGHT. In addition, any other channels
which are panned RIGHT will also be recorded on track 4
if the faders for those channels are at raised. The assign
ment illustrated below is achieved by setting track 4's REC
SELECT switch to “R” and setting the PAN controls on
channels 1,2 and 3 fully right. Channel 4's pan control is
set fully LEFT to prevent its signal from reaching track 4 of
When a REC SELECT switch is set to "L” or “R”
the track will also record signal from the “LEFT or
RIGHT side” of the AUX return. Therefore, effects
can be recorded along with input sources.
