Connections for recording analog sources
• Guitar, bass guitar
• Mic (XLR)
[INPUT 1]–[INPUT 4] jacks
• Synthesizer etc.
For details on assigning the audio inputs to mixer
channels and auditioning the input sound, refer to
p.23.
A guitar or bass guitar that is being sent
through a compact effect device can be con-
nected to [INPUT 1]–[INPUT 8].
When inputting in stereo, you should select
two adjacent inputs (1–2, 3–4) so that track
editing can be performed more efficiently.
If you are recording from a connected mic,
locate the mic at a sufficient distance from the
D1600 so that it does not pick up noise.
Connections for recording digital sources
• Optical digital (S/P DIF) output of a digital out-
put device such as DAT or MD [S/P DIF IN] jack
of the D1600 (use an optical digital cable for con-
nection)

channels and auditioning the input sound, refer to
p.23.

2. Turning the power on/off

Turning the power on
Use the following procedure to turn on the power of
the D1600 and of the devices connected to it.
Before turning the power on, be sure to lower the
volume of each device to the minimum position,
and turn the devices on beginning with the first
device in the signal chain (i.e., devices that produce
audio signals).
1 Lower the D1600's [MASTER] fader to the
position. Also turn down the volume
of each connected device.
2 Turn on the power of the external input
device, such as a keyboard connected to
the D1600. If an external drive is con-
nected, turn on the power of the external
drive.
3 Turn on the [Main power] of the D1600.
The STANDBY LED will light. The D1600 will be in
"standby" mode.
4 Press the [POWER] key of the D1600 to turn on
the power.
The opening message will appear in the LCD
screen, and then the [SONG] "SelSong" tab page
will appear. The selected song will be the one that
had been selected when the power was last turned
off.
5 Turn on the power of your external equipment,
such as the monitor system to which audio is
being sent from the D1600.
Turning the power off
When you are finished playing or recording a song,
turn off the power. If you will not be using the D1600
for an extended (e.g., when you have finished work for
the day), be sure to turn off the main power so that the
power is turned off completely. Use the following pro-
cedure to turn off the power of the D1600 and of the
connected devices.
Before turning off the power, turn the volume of all
devices down to the minimum position, and turn
off the power switches beginning with the devices
that are at the end of the audio signal chain.
When you wish to turn off the power, you must
perform the shutdown operation. Never turn off
the [Main power] switch or disconnect the power
