7 – Recorder Functions
Use this unit’s bounce function to mix already recorded tracks (1–4) down to
one or two tracks.
Multitrack tape recorders can only bounce to an open track (in other words,
they can not record to a track that is also a source of the mix). For example,
tracks 1–3 could be bounced to track 4, but tracks 1–4 could not be bounced
to track 1. This unit, however, does not have this limitation.
You can mix down tracks 1–4 as a stereo mix to tracks 1 and 2 (stereo bounce),
or bounce tracks 1–4 as a mono mix to track 1 (mono bounce).
Tracks 1–4 are mixed down to stereo
and bounced to tracks 1–2
Track 1 and 2
Track 1 and 2
New recordings can be
made to tracks 3–4
Source tracks are erased when they are bounce destinations. (In the illus-
tration above the drum parts are overwritten by the stereo mix). However, you
can use the unit’s (undo) function to return to the previous state if you make a
mistake. (See “Undoing operations (undo)” on page 58.)
Inside this unit, a mixdown is made to create a stereo master track that is
recorded to the designated tracks.
Punching in and out
Punching in/out is a technique to replace a part of an already recorded track.
Start playback and when you reach the part that you want to replace, switch
to record (punch in), then switch back to the Play (or stop) when you finish the
part that you want to replace (punch out).
1. Decide what part of the track you plan to replace and choose a point to
begin where the new recording can sit well with the existing recording.
2. Press the REC button of the TRACK that you plan to replace part of to
start record standby (REC indicator blinks).
3. Start playback before the part of the track that you want to replace.
4. Press the Record (0) button to start recording (punch in) when you
reach the part. Play or sing what you want to record.
5. Press the Play (7) button to switch to playback (punch out) when you
finish the replacement recording.
You can also press the Stop (8) button to punch out at the end of the
