MIC/LINE INPUTs 1 & 2
These inputs are used to connect balanced condenser microphones and balanced line-level
signal sources to the MD8 (unbalanced sources can also be connected). Each input features
a XLR-type connector and TRS phone jack connector. Phantom power is available on the
XLR-type connector for use with condenser microphones. If you're not using condenser
microphones with these inputs, keep the PHANTOM POWER ON/OFF switch set to OFF.
I
MONITOR OUT
These phono jacks are used to send the monitor signals to a ste-
reo monitor amplifier and speakers. This could be a dedicated
monitor amplifier and speakers or your hi-fi system. Connect
them to the monitor amplifier's stereo inputs. The MONITOR
OUT signal is the same as the headphone signal.
J
STEREO OUT
These phono jacks are used to connect a stereo master recorder
for recording the final mix. The master recorder could be a DAT
deck, MiniDisc deck, or cassette tape deck. Connect them to your
master recorder's stereo inputs.
K
2TR IN
These phono jacks are used to connect the outputs of a stereo
master recorder to the MD8. The master recorder could be a DAT
deck, MiniDisc deck, or cassette tape deck. Connect them to your
master recorder's stereo outputs. To monitor the output of the
stereo master recorder during mixdown, press the 2TR IN
MONITOR SELECT switch.
L
TRACK DIRECT OUTs
These phono jacks are used to send the track signals to another
mixer. This is useful when you use the MD8 in conjunction with
a larger mixer. Connect them to the line inputs on the other
mixer. With no disc loaded, the DIRECT OUTs 1–4 output the
signals of Groups 1–4.
