    Perform the shutdown process when you have finished all activities such as playback or record- ing. If you will not be using the D32XD/D16XD for an extended period of time (for example when you have finished working for the day), you must turn off the main power switch on the back of the D32XD/D16XD.

  • Page 13: First Time

    Headphones Cautions when making digital connections If any of the synchronization settings of the D32XD/D16XD do not match those of the con- nected device, noise may occur. Turn down the faders or minimize the volume of your monitor speakers before you change settings.

    ♦ XLR input jacks with +48V phantom power, analog inputs, dedicated gui- tar input jack, and digital connectors To maximize the benefit of the D32XD/D16XD’s full-digital processing, all of the analog inputs use high-performance balanced pre amps. The eight +48V phantom-powered XLR input jacks contain high-performance mic preamps.

  • Page 15

    Scene automation can be used to switch scenes automatically. ♦ Automation playback with moving faders (D32XD) The D32XD uses seventeen 100 mm motorized - or “flying” - faders to adjust the channel balance in realtime. When recording, playing back, or recalling a scene when automation is on, the faders will move to their programmed loca- tions.

    ♦ USB connection for easy data exchange with your computer The USB connector makes it easy to exchange data with your computer. You can connect the D32XD/D16XD to your computer and use 2 GB of the D32XD/D16XD’s hard drive capacity as a PC drive for shared data.

Both XLR jacks and balanced 1/4" TRS phone jacks are provided. You may also connect unbalanced phone plugs to the 1/4" jacks. Each XLR jack can provide +48V phantom power for condenser mics.

  • Page 18

    The balanced XLR jacks for INPUT 1–8 provide +48V phantom power for use by condenser mics; you can switch this on/off independently for each channel. Your equipment may be damaged if you connect or disconnect a condenser mic with phantom power turned on.

    13 MASTER fader The MASTER fader adjusts the overall volume. When the master track is being recorded, this fader sets the recording level. The D32XD has touch-sensitive moving faders. Normally, you will leave the MASTER fader set to 0 dBu while recording on the individual tracks, and use the channel faders to adjustment the mix so the output does not distort.
