Multi-Source Mixing

In addition to the eight disc tracks, you can also connect external sound sources to the
MIC/LINE inputs and mix up to eight more sound sources with the disc tracks. These extra
sound sources are mixed using the CUE LEVEL and PAN controls. The [CUE MIX TO STE-
REO] switch makes this possible. When this switch is in the ON position, the CUE bus signals
are sent to the Stereo bus for mixing with the MIC/LINE signals.
In combination with the eight disc tracks and LINE INPUTs 9–12, this means that up to 20
inputs are available for mixdown. Typically, these extra sound sources could be MIDI tone
generators, synthesizers, samplers, etc., that are being controlled by a MIDI sequencer.
The following procedure is similar to the previous mixdown procedure except that it
explains how to use the CUE controls to mix the disc signals and MIC/LINE signals.
1. Make sure that all [GROUP ASSIGN] switches are off, including the
MONITOR SELECT [CUE] switch.
2. Use the [FLIP] switch on each input channel to feed the disc and MIC/LINE
signals to the input channel or CUE controls.
With the [FLIP] switch in the up position, the MIC/LINE input signal is fed to the input
channel and the disc signal is fed to the CUE controls. With the [FLIP] switch in the down
position, however, this is reversed: the MIC/LINE input signal is fed to the CUE controls
and the disc signal is fed to the input channel. As the CUE controls consist of just level and
pan, signals that require EQ and effects should be fed to the input channel.
3. Set the PAN and CUE PAN controls on each input channel to their center
positions.
