Recording & Mixing Techniques

Preparing for Ping-Pong

1. Press the [
2. Set the [FLIP] switches on the source track channels to PB.
This sets the disc playback (track) signal as the source for the channels.
3. Set the faders on the source channels to the 7–8 mark.
4. Use the GROUP ASSIGN switches and PAN controls on the source track
channels to assign the signals to the destination track.
See GRP Method on page 18 for information about using the GROUP ASSIGN switches and
PAN controls to assign signals to tracks.
5. Hold down [GROUP] while pressing the [REC SELECT] button of the des-
tination track.
A dot flashes above the corresponding track indicator. Using the GRP recording mode is nec-
essary because the source tracks need to be connected internally to the destination track.
Ping-Pong does not yield the desired result in DIR mode (direct connection between the
inputs and tracks).
6. Press the MONITOR SELECT [GROUP] switch for the destination track.
This sets the monitor source to the destination track.
7. Set the MONITOR LEVEL control as required.
