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 MD8 functions and require a basic knowledge of MD8 and
multitrack recording techniques.

The microphone, synthesizer, and guitar are just examples of the kind of sound sources that
can be connected to the MD8. 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 only required for mixdown.
