Single Take Auto Punch In/Out

Rehearsing Auto Punch (Single Take)
1. Press the [REC SELECT] button (or [GROUP] + [REC SELECT]) of the track
that you want to record.
A dot flashes above the corresponding track indicator.
2. Press the [AUTO PUNCH I/O] button.
3. Select the Auto Punch In mode (Single Take) with the DATA dial and press
[ENTER].
The Pre-Roll point (i.e., a position located 5 seconds before the Punch In point) is located
automatically. The REHE indicators flash and the display shows A.Pnch Rehe . The
AUTO PUNCH IN and OUT indicators appear. This is Single Take Auto Punch Rehearse
Standby mode.
If you're monitoring the track via CUE, you'll hear the signal that is assigned to the selected
track. If you want to rehearse the Auto Punch In/Out repeatedly, press the [REPEAT] button.
REPEAT appears on the display.
4. Press the [PLAY] button to start the Auto Punch In/Out sequence.
Playback starts and the PLAY indicators light up. The REHE indicators continue to flash,
indicating Play Rehearse Wait mode.
At the specified IN point, punch in occurs (i.e., rehearsal starts). The REHE indicators stop
flashing and light up continuously. The IN indicator disappears.
If you're monitoring the track via CUE, you'll hear the existing sounds playback until the
IN point, after which you'll hear the new sound that's going to be recorded (we're not record-
ing anything in Rehearse mode, of course).
At the specified OUT point, punch out occurs (i.e., rehearsal stops). The REHE indicators
go out and the OUT indicator disappears.
Playback continues up to the Post-Roll point. Then the Pre-Roll point is located automati-
cally, and the MD8 waits in Auto Punch Rehearse Standby mode. You can press the [PLAY]
button again for another rehearsal or move on to the next section to perform the Auto Punch
In/Out for real.
If you pressed the [REPEAT] button in Step 3, the MD8 will rehearse the Auto Punch In/Out
repeatedly until you press the [STOP] button.
The following illustration shows the Auto Punch Rehearse sequence.
