Auto punch-in/out
Auto punch-in/out is when punch-in and punch-out
occur automatically at pre-specified times.
1 Access the [AUTO PUNCH] "AtPunch" tab page.
2 Register IN (punch-in) as the time at which
recording will begin, and OUT (punch-out) as the
time at which recording will end.
For details on registering the IN and OUT times,
refer to p.35.
In the [AUTO PUNCH] "AtPunch" tab page, you
can press the "Wave" button to register the IN and
OUT points while viewing a waveform display.
The time locations you register will be overwritten
onto the [IN/LOC1] key and [OUT/LOC2] key.
3 Connect the input device, and adjust the record-
ing level.
Refer to "1. Analog inputs" and "1. Adjust the
recording level, and record" ( p.23, 27).
4 Make monitor output settings.
Refer to "Manual punch-in/out" step 2. ( p.28)
5 Specify the "pre-roll" – the length of playback
that will occur before the recording start location.
In the [AUTO PUNCH] "AtPunch" tab page, press
the "RolTime" button to access the "SetRollTime"
dialog box. ( p.98)
• Set "PreRoll" to the desired length of playback
before the beginning of recording. Set "Pos-
tRoll" to the desired length of playback after the
end of recording. Set "Unit" to the desired unit
of pre/post-roll time.
• When you have finished making settings, press
the "OK" button to return to the previous page.
6 Turn on the auto punch-in/out function.
In the [AUTO PUNCH] "AtPunch" tab page, press
the "AutoPunch" button to turn it "On." The
[AUTO PUNCH] key will light.
7 Begin recording.
• When you press the [REC] key, the location will
move back from the specified record start time
by the length of the pre-roll time specified by
"PreRoll," and the D1600 will enter record-
ready mode (LED blinking).
• When you press the [PLAY] key, playback will
begin. The track will play back during the pre-
roll time, and will switch to recording at the
specified point (IN). (The [REC] LED will light.)
• When the specified end of recording is reached,
recording will end. (The [REC] LED will blink.)
8 Press the [STOP] key to stop.
After the post-roll time has elapsed, the D1600 will
stop and return to the beginning of the pre-roll
9 Listen to the performance that you recorded.
5. Combining multiple tracks into
two: Bounce
You can combine the performances of multiple tracks
into two tracks, thus freeing up the original tracks for
additional recording. This procedure is called bounc-
ing. You can use this when you wish to play back the
performances of more than 16 tracks simultaneously.
You can use bounce recording to do the following
• Combine 16 tracks of audio, and overwrite-record
them onto two tracks.
• Combine 16 tracks of audio, and record them onto
two unused virtual tracks.
• Record 14 tracks of audio and two external input sig-
nals onto the remaining two tracks.
• Combine multiple external input sources, and record
them on two tracks.
When you use a CD-R/RW drive to create an audio
CD, the data of tracks 1 and 2 will be written to the
CD, so you must combine your completed song
into tracks 1 and 2.
You can also mix down your completed song to
two tracks of the D1600, instead of mixing down to
an external two-channel recorder.
Combining 16 tracks of audio and over-
writing them onto 2 tracks
As an example, here's how to combine the audio of
tracks 1–16, and overwrite-record the result onto tracks
1 and 2.
1 Select bounce recording as the recording mode.
• Access the [RECORD] "RecMode" tab page.
• Select "Bounce" (bounce recording).
2 Select the bounce mode.
• Access the [RECORD] "Bounce" tab page.
• Set "BounceMode" to "16Tr 2Tr."
3 Choose the currently selected tracks for record-
Set "RecordVirtualTrack" to "Current."
4 Select the tracks that you wish to record.
Set the status of the tracks to be recorded (tracks 1
and 2) to REC (LED lit red). Set the remaining
tracks (3–16) to PLAY (LED lit green).
5 Adjust the stereo positions of the playback tracks.
Press the [PLAY] key, and rotate the [PAN] knob to
adjust the stereo positions of channels 1–16.
6 Adjust the playback/recording levels.
Use the [CHANNEL] faders to adjust the playback
• Press the [METER/TRACK VIEW] key.
• Press the " " button to access the dialog box.
Select "PostFaderLev" so that you can view the
meter display for each fader.
7 Use the [MASTER] fader to adjust the recording
When you are finished making adjustments, press
the [STOP] key.
8 Move the current location to the beginning of the
song. ( p.35)
