The First Session
This chapter explains how to record and mix your first MD4 session. If this is your first time
with a multitrack recorder, we recommend that you start with this chapter and follow all the
procedures closely. When you've completed this chapter, have a look at subsequent chapters,
which explain more advanced MD4 functions and require a basic knowledge of MD4 and mul-
titrack recording techniques.

Quick-Start System

The following illustration shows the basic equipment necessary to start recording with MD4.
Master Recorder
Microphone
Synthesizer
Guitar Processor
The microphone, synthesizer, and guitar are examples of the kind of sound sources that can be
connected to MD4. For monitoring, you can use either headphones or a monitor amp and
speakers. Alternatively, you could use your hi-fi amp and speakers. The master recorder is
required for mixdown.
