Using a Footswitch

An optional footswitch can be used to control the MD8. Apart from a few small differences,
footswitch operation is essentially the same as pressing the MD8 [PLAY] button. Connect
the footswitch to the PUNCH I/O jack at the front of the MD8.
The following is a summary of footswitch operations.
Normal playback : Play Pause
Auto Punch In/Out : Record Pause
New Recording: New Record Pause
The following table shows footswitch operation for all MD8 modes. It also shows the status
of the REHE, REC, and PLAY indicators for the various modes.

(1) [PAUSE] button operation.
(2) Effective only when a [REC SELECT] button is pressed.
(3) [STOP] button operation.
(4) After locating the Pre-Roll point, the Auto Punch In/Out sequence starts.
For the optional Yamaha FC5 Footswitch, operation is initiated when the footswitch is
pressed, not when it's released. This may differ, however, with other footswitches. If available,
try experimenting with the footswitch's POLARITY switch until you find the desired setting.
