Setting the MMC Device ID

Because MMC messages are universal commands, you may have to set the MD8 so that it
only responds to certain MMC messages. This is only necessary, however, if you are control-
ling several MMC-compatible devices that must not execute the same messages. A Device
ID is a means of identifying a unit ("send it to unit number X"). Make sure however, the
transmitting device sends data for the device number you specify here.
1. Press the [UTILITY] button and use the DATA dial to select the MMC Dev
ID function.
2. Press the [ENTER] button.
The display now shows DEV ID X (where "X" represents the number you set). The setting
range is 1–127.
3. Press the [ENTER] button to return to the Utility menu.
Press the [EXIT] or [UTILITY] button to leave the Utility mode altogether.

Enabling MMC

This parameter allows you to switch on or off reception of MMC messages. The MD8 only
executes MMC messages when this parameter is switched ON.
1. Press the [UTILITY] button and use the DATA dial to select the MMC
Receive function.
2. Press the [ENTER] button.
The display now shows MMC Rx OFF .
3. Use the DATA wheel to set this parameter to ON or OFF.
When switched on, the display reads MMC Rx ON , and the MMC indicator to the left of
the message line lights. The MD8 is now ready for receiving MMC commands. Make sure
they carry the correct Device ID, though (see above).
4. Press the [ENTER] button to return to the Utility menu.
Press the [EXIT] or [UTILITY] button to leave the Utility mode altogether.
