MD8 Applications

This chapter shows how the MD8 can be used for various applications.

One-Take Recording

One-Take recording is ideal for live recording or recording bands that like to record with all
members playing together. In this system, vocals, backing vocals, guitar, and drums are
recorded using microphones, while the bass is connected via DI (Direct Injection). Powered
monitors are connected to the AUX SENDs for vocal and synthesizer monitoring. With an
optional footswitch connected to the PUNCH I/O jack, one of the musicians can stop and
start MD8 recording. A stereo pair of headphones is used for monitoring. Using the DIR
recording method, up to eight tracks can be recorded simultaneously.
