Recording & Mixing Techniques

Ping-Pong with Overdub

The ping-pong technique can be combined with overdub recording. This allows you to
bounce down tracks and record a new sound source simultaneously. In the following illus-
tration, for example, Tracks 5, 6, and 7 are bounced to Track 1 along with a new signal com-
ing from Input Channel 8.
1. Connect a sound source to an unused input channel (i.e., one you don't
need during the ping-pong operation).
If you decide to ping-pong all eight MD8 tracks, you can still use LINE INPUTs 9–10 and
11–12 for adding new parts. This only works for line-level signals (synthesizers, samplers,
drum machines, etc.), however.
2. Set the GAIN control of the channel to which you are feeding the live
signal as appropriate.
3. Set the [FLIP] switch to MIC/LINE.
4. Set the fader to the 7–8 mark.
5. Use the ASSIGN switches and PAN control to assign the signals to the des-
tination track.
LINE INPUTs 9, 10, 11, and 12 are stereo pairs. The odd inputs (9 & 11) are connected to
busses 1 and 3, while the even inputs (10 &12) are connected to busses 2 and 4.
Use the GROUP ASSIGN switches of these channels to assign either (mono) or both (stereo)
inputs to the desired track(s). The latter is only meaningful during Ping-Pong to two tracks
(stereo).
