@AUX SEND Controls
The AUX SEND controls are used primarily when add
ing effects such as reverberation or echo to the sound
of a channel or track. The AUX SEND control on each
mixer channel determines the amount of signal from
that channel sent to the AUX SEND jack. The AUX
SEND jack must be connected to the input of an exter
nal signal processor such as the YAMAHA EMP100
Multi-effect Processor (see “USING THE AUX SEND/
RETURN LOOP” on page 22).
O AUX RETURN Control
The AUX RETURN control determines the level at which
the signal from an external signal processor is re
turned and mixed in with the MT120S’s main stereo
output signal. The output from an external signal proc
essor fed by the AUX SEND jack must be connected to
the AUX RETURN jack(s) (see “USING THE AUX SEND/
RETURN LOOP” on page 22).
©MONITOR SELECT Switch
MONITOR: This position is selected to listen to the
four tape tracks. In this position a mix from the
four MONITOR controls is sent to the PHONES
jack and the MONITOR OUT jack.
MIX: This position is selected to hear a combination of
the four tape tracks and input sources connected
to the input jacks. The mix from the MONITOR
controls is combined with the stereo output from
the mixer section and sent to the PHONES jack
and MONITOR OUT jack.
STEREO: This position is selected to monitor the stereo
output from the mixer section. In this position, the
mix sent to the MONITOR OUT jack and PHONES
jack is the same mix that is sent to the STEREO
©MONITOR Controls 1 — 4
The four MONITOR controls determine the level of the
signal from the corresponding recorder tracks which is
sent to the PHONES jack and MONITOR OUT jacks
when the MONITOR SELECT switch is set to either
“MONITOR” or “MIX.” The MONITOR controls are pri
marily used to set up the optimum levels for monitoring
This control is used to set headphone and control room
listening level. It adjusts the level of signal sent to the
PHONES jack and MONITOR OUT jacks with out af
fecting the signal level appearing at the STEREO OUT

The MASTER fader sets the overall output level of the
MT120S mixer section, and thus the level of the output
signal appearing at the STEREO OUT jacks. The MAS
TER fader also affects recording level when any of the
mixer section’s channels are assigned to the record
er’s tracks via the PAN controls (see “SETTING RE
CORDING LEVELS” on page 15).
© LED Peak Meters
The four LED peak meters accurately display output
levels from the MT120S’s four recorder tracks when
the METER switch is set to “4TR”, or meters 1 and 2
display the level of signals appearing at the mixer
section’s stereo outputs (the STEREO OUT jacks) when
the METER switch is set to “ST.”
The LED peak meters are a guide for setting up the^
optimum recording levels, (see “SETTING
ING LEVELS” on page 15).
When the METER switch is set to “ST,” meters 1 and 2
dispiay the ievel of signals appearing at the mixer
section’s stereo outputs (the STEREO OUT jacks). When
set to “4TR,” the four LED peak meters dispiay the
ievei of the corresponding recorder track signais.
dbx ON/OFF Switch
The dbx switch determines whether the MT120S ’s
internal dbx noise reduction system is ON or OFF. For
normai recording and playback using the MT120S, the
dbx switch should be turned ON. This provides a sig
nificantly improved signal-to-noise ratio (as much as
85 dB) so your recordings wili sound cleaner and have
much less tape hiss.
If dbx noise reduction is to be activated during synchro-^
recording, set the switch to “SYNC”.
For dbx noise reduction to be effective, it must be
turned ON both during recording and playback.
The dbx switch may be turned OFF when playing back
tapes that were recorded on other equipment and which
are not dbx-encoded.
“For Error-free SYNC Recording"
• When recording the FSK signal, set the Track 4 re
cording level between 0 and +3dB.
• For recording and playback of the FSK signal on
Track 4, set the dbx switch to the “SYNC" position.
* When the dbx switch is set to "SYNC”, Tracks 1 to
3 are set to dbx ON.
• Do not record signals (music, etc.) other than the
FSK signal on Track 4, when the dbx switch is set to
the "SYNC" position.
• If other signals (music, etc.) are recorded during re
cording of the FSK signal, avoid using adjacent tracks,
