STEP 2: MONITOR SETUP
Once your source is connected to an input channei and that channei is assigned to one of the recorder’s tracks, you shouid
set up your monitor system so that you can iisten to the track as it is recorded.
The MT120S aiiows you to monitor the material being recorded either via a pair of headphones connected to the
PHONES jack or via a sound system with speakers connected to the MONITOR OUT jacks. The level appearing at the
PHONES jack and MONITOR OUT jacks is controlled by the MONITOR/PHONES control. The MONITOR SELECT switch
has three positions which allow you to listen to tape tracks only (MONITOR position), input sources (STEREO position), or
a combination (MIX position).
MONITOR: In this position only the output from the re
corder’s four tracks is sent directly to the PHONES
jack and the MONITOR OUT jacks via the four
MONITOR controls. The MONITOR controls are used
to create the desired monitor “mix”. This setup is
ideal for general monitoring while recording because
it allows you to listen to the four tape tracks while
leaving input faders available to route signal sources
to tape. Material already recorded on any of the
recorder’s tracks is delivered to the PHONES jack
and MONITOR OUT jacks via the corresponding
MONITOR controls. In this case, an input source can
only be heard when it is assigned to a track via the
appropriate REO SELECT switch, and the TRANS
PORT controls are in the RECORD or RECORD/
STEREO: Oniy the stereo output from the mixer section is
sent to the PHONES jack and MONITOR OUT jacks.
This setting is most useful for mixdown of a completed
multitrack recording, since you want to hear the mix
produced by the mixer section’s input faders and any
effects applied using the AUX SEND and RETURN ^
controls while mixing.
[Note] Speakers should not be used for monitoring if
you will be recording via microphones, since the
monitor sound will leak into the microphone(s)
and spoil the recording.
MIX: Both the output from the recorder’s four tracks (via
the MONITOR controls) and the stereo output from
the mixer section are sent to the PHONES jack and
MONITOR OUT jacks.
