  • Page 39: Recording

    4: Recording Recording This chapter describes how to record using the DR16pro. Sampling Frequency It is important that you set the sampling frequency before recording. If it is changed after some material has been recorded, that material will playback at the wrong pitch. The DR16pro can record at any one of the three common digital audio sampling frequencies: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz.
  • Page 40 4: Recording Selecting the Sampling Frequency Press the SUB-MENU key. The indicator in the key will flash and the text “SUB-MENU” will appear on the display. Press the 2(DIGI) key – numeric keypad. The message “DIGI OUT” will appear on the display. Use the JOG/SHUTTLE control to select the sampling rate option.
  • Page 41 The new record bit-length will be selected. 20-Bit Packed Audio This is a special option that is only available when recording AKAI format audio files. Typically, 20- bit audio occupies the same space on disk as 24-bit audio (the extra 4-bits of storage space in each sample being wasted).
  • Page 42: Input Source

    4: Recording Input Source The DR16pro can record from its eight analog inputs, the stereo (two-channel) built-in AES/EBU digital input, the optional multi-channel digital audio option card (AES/EBU or ADAT) or the inter- nal two-channel bus signal. Analog Inputs The DR16pro has eight analog input connectors on its rear panel. These connectors use 1/4 inch stereo phone jacks.
  • Page 43 4: Recording Sampling Frequency To record via the digital inputs, the DR16pro must be set to the same sampling frequency as that used by the incoming digital signal. This is because the DR16pro has to synchronize with the incoming signal (word sync). If you are recording from a CD, prerecorded MD, this will be 44.1kHz. If you are recording from a DAT that was recorded via analog inputs, this will be 48kHz.
  • Page 44: Selecting The Input Channels

    4: Recording To switch input sources 1-8 to digital: Press the DIGI key. The LED over the DIGI key lights. Input sources A1 ..

  • Page 48: Punch-In Functions

    4: Recording Punch-In Functions Manual Punch-In/Out Manual punch-in/out allows you to punch-in and punch-out during playback. Set up the DR16pro so that it is ready to record. Record setup procedures are explained on the preceding pages. Arm the channel that you want to use for punch-in/out. The TRACK REC key of the armed track will flash.
  • Page 49 4: Recording Footswitch Punch-In/Out Manual punch-in/out can also be carried out using a footswitch, especially useful if you are playing an instrument and operating the DR16pro simultaneously. Connect a footswitch to the FOOT SW connection on the front panel. Set up the DR16pro so that it is ready to record. Record setup procedures are explained on the preceding pages.
  • Page 50 4: Recording Auto Punch-In/Out Auto punch in/out allows you to automatically punch in and punch out at the specified in and out points. This is useful when you need greater accuracy than that possible using manual punch in/ out. It also allows you to repeat a punch in/out until you are satisfied with the result. Set up the DR16pro so that it is ready to record.
  • Page 51 4: Recording Track Number Limitations The DR16pro carries certain technical limitations regarding the number of tracks you can use simultaneously for recording and playback. In practical terms, it is unlikely that you will encounter this limitation. Nevertheless, this limitation is described below. When you select a track for recording (including auto or manual punch-in), if the number of play back tracks (including those that contain no data) exceeds a certain number, some tracks may not play back.
  • Page 52 4: Recording Mute Stop Mode The REC MON parameter is used to select a special Mute Stop mode that prevents the monitoring of inputs when recording is stopped. This is a special function intended for use in dialog replace- ment. The following table describes monitoring operations when the Recording Monitor status is set to Mute Stop: Key Selection...
  • Page 53: Recording Undo

    4: Recording Recording Undo If you record new material over some existing material, and then decide that you preferred the original, you can use the undo function to restore the original. In fact, you can switch between the original and the new during playback for comparison. This is possible because the DR16pro al- ways records new material on a different area of the hard disk, except in Destructive Recording Mode.
  • Page 54: Setting The Recording Mode

    4: Recording Setting the Recording Mode The Akai DR16pro features two recording modes: Normal and Destructive. In Normal Recording mode, if you record twice on the same track at the same time location, both recordings remain on the hard disk, in different areas.
  • Page 55 4: Recording To set the recording mode: Press the SUB-MENU key. The indicator in the key will flash and the text “SUB-MENU” will appear on the display. Press the 3(SET UP) key – numeric keypad, then rotate the JOG/SHUTTLE control to select Recording Mode.
  • Page 56: Playback

    5: Playback Playback This chapter describes some functions that apply to playback only. Outputs The DR16pro has 16 analog outputs that can be configured as 16 individual track outputs in MULT mode, or the combination of two send outputs and a master stereo output in MIX mode. It also has a digital output that duplicates the signal at the master stereo output.
  • Page 57: Starting & Stopping Playback

    5: Playback Digital Audio Formats The DR16pro can transmit either of the two industry-standard digital audio formats. Type 1 (pro- fessional) is usually referred to as AES/EBU format. Type 2 (consumer) is also known as S/PDIF format. Both of the connectors (XLR and RCA/phono) on the rear panel of the DR16pro can transmit either Type 1 or Type 2 signals as output.
  • Page 58: Special Play Keys

    5: Playback Special Play Keys The DR16pro has four special play keys for confirming edit points, punch-in locations, etc. These are the TO(TIME), OVER, FROM(TIME), and IN->OUT(<<MEMO>>) keys: IN -> OVER FROM TIME TIME <<MEMO>> The TO key Setting the TO time Press the SUB-MENU key.

    12: Hard Disks Hard Disk Size The total available recording time depends on the total size of all storage media — the internal hard disk and any external hard disks connected via the SCSI-A bus. As can be seen from the table below, the sampling frequency also affects the available time.
  • Page 107 12: Hard Disks SCSI-A The SCSI-A bus is used to connect external hard disks for recording. SCSI Cables Use only high-quality SCSI cables when connecting SCSI devices. Cables are available in a vari- ety of lengths; however, you should pay particular attention to the total length of the SCSI daisy chain.
  • Page 108 12: Hard Disks SCSI Termination The ends of a SCSI daisy chain must be terminated correctly. Otherwise, data errors, system crashes, etc., may occur. Termination at the DR16pro end of the chain is taken care of by the DR16pro. At the other end of the chain you must fit a terminator. Some SCSI devices have a terminator built-in.

  • Page 112 12: Hard Disks Note: While the DR16pro can properly format a Macintosh hard disk or MO, it does not install any type of Macintosh driver software on the disk. Therefore, disks formatted on the DR16pro will require third-party mounting software in order to appear on the Macintosh desktop.
  • Page 113: Erasing Disks

    12: Hard Disks Erasing Disks This function allows you erase all material on a disk before starting a new session. You may want to back up the existing material for future use before proceeding. See “Backup and Restore” on page 110. To erase a disk: Press the SUB-MENU key.
  • Page 114: Optimizing Your Hard Disks

    12: Hard Disks Optimizing Your Hard Disks Editing and recording on the DR16pro is non-destructive, except in destructive recording mode. (See “Setting the Recording Mode” on page 45.) This means that when you record new material over a location with existing data, the DR16pro does not erase the existing material. Instead, it allocates space elsewhere on the hard disk to store the new material and marks the previous location as overwritten.
  • Page 115 12: Hard Disks Note: Executing the Minimize function requires a significant amount of free disk space. Its first priority is to destroy no data accidentally. The Minimize function makes a copy of the portion of the take that can be played back before it removes the original take. Therefore, if your disk is full of recordings, or even close to full, you may not be able to use the Minimize function.
  • Page 116: Copying Disks And Projects

    12: Hard Disks Copying Disks and Projects You can copy the entire contents of a hard disk, or a single project on the disk, to another disk connected to the SCSI-A bus. Note: You should use a destination hard disk that is larger than your source disk. An error message appears if you try to copy data from a large capacity disk to a smaller disk, preventing the Copy function from being performed.
