A new option is added to the track edit menu, allowing fine adjustment of V-take start position and end position. For example, when creating an audio CD, silent passages at the start or end of the V-take can be cut.

G Creating an audio CD

Using the CD-R/RW drive, you can write the master track of one or several projects to a CD-R/CD-RW disc to create an audio CD. Audio data for up to 99 songs can be stored on a single CD-R/CD-RW disc, provided there is enough space on the disc. An audio CD created in this way can be played on a regular CD player after the finalizing operation has been performed. Because the MRS-1044CD model incorporates a CD-R/RW drive, an audio CD can be created without any external equipment. To create an audio CD with the MRS-1044 model, the separately available SCSI Interface Board SIB-01 and an external CD-R/RW drive are required.
Connection of External SCSI Devices
External SCSI devices can be connected to the MRS-1044 series version 2.0 when the separately available SCSI Interface Board SIB-01 is installed.
Specifications for SCSI devices that can be connected to the MRS-1044 series are as follows.
To connect the MRS-1044 series (with SIB-01 installed) to a SCSI device, proceed as follows.
Type MO (Magneto-optical disk) drive (128 MB, 230 MB, 540 MB), ZIP drive (100 MB, 250 MB), hard disk drive (2.GB) CD-R/RW drive, MO (Magneto-optical disk) drive (128 MB, 230 MB, 540 MB), ZIP drive (100 MB, 250 MB), hard disk drive (2.GB)
1. Make sure that power to the MRS-1044 series and
the external SCSI device is turned off. Then connect the SCSI connector on the SIB-01 to the SCSI connector of the SCSI device, using a SCSI cable. The SCSI cable should be a high-impedance type and should be as short as possible. The use of an inferior cable can lead to malfunction and damage.

2. Mount the terminator on the external SCSI device.
The "terminator" is a special resistor that must be present on the last device in a SCSI chain. Some devices have a terminator built in. In such a case, set the switch for the terminator to ON.

Basic master track operation
To switch between recording and playback of the master track, the MASTER status key in the fader section is used. Each push of this key cycles through the following modes.

MASTER status key

Master track status Other channels Effect
Out Record/play disabled Normal Normal
Lit red Record enabled Normal Normal
Lit green Play enabled Muted Off
In some conditions, the MASTER status key functions as a master track selector key. For example, at the V-take selection screen (ERASE) or a menu included in the track
edit menu (TRIM), pressing the MASTER key causes an "M" to appear at the track number position. This indicates that the master track has been selected for the operation.
Turn the dial to switch to the "CURRENT" indication.
5. To return to the main screen, press the [EXIT] key

several times.

The UTILITY BOUNCE menu also comprises a REC TR screen for selecting whether recorded tracks are played when executing a bounce, but this setting has no effect when playing a bounce on the master track.

V-take 1 of master track

TRIM is a function that was added in version 1.2. It serves for trimming unwanted portions at the beginning and end of a track. For details, see page 12.
6. Press the display section [V-TAKE] key.
The [V-TAKE] key will light, and a screen will appear in which you can switch the V-take for each track.

G Writing by album

This method involves first creating a list for the audio CD (called an "album") which contains information about master tracks from various projects that are to be included. The CD is then written in one operation, and finalizing is automatically performed, so that no more audio data can be added later.
"Finalizing" an audio CD refers to the procedure of making it playable on an ordinary CD player. After it has been finalized, no more data can be added to a CD-R/CD-RW disc.
Recording audio data by project
You can select one project and write the contents of its master track to a CD-R/CD-RW disc. Verify that the CD-R/RW drive is connected to the SIB-01 and turned on.
The waveform data of the currently selected V-take of the master track is recorded as is on the audio CD. Note that the setting of the MASTER fader has no effect on the recorded data. It is not possible to specify just a portion of the master track for recording. If necessary, use the trimming function (p. 12) to cut unneeded sections before and after the desired portion.
1. Verify that a suitable disc is inserted in the CDR/RW drive. To write new audio data, use a blank CD-R/CD-RW or a completely erased CD-RW.

Troubleshooting

If there are problems during MRS-1044 series or SCSI device operation, check the following points first.
I MRS-1044 series does not recognize SCSI device
Check whether SIB-01 is correctly installed. Check whether MRS-1044 series system has been updated to version 2.0 Check whether SCSI cable is correctly connected, and whether SCSI device is powered. Check whether SCSI ID setting is appropriate. Check whether terminator is installed in the last device, or internal terminator has been set to ON. In rare cases, removing the terminator may improve operation stability.
I While UIB-01 is being used, access indicator remains lit.
When the UIB-01 is installed in the MRS-1044CD model and the unit is in USB mode, the disc access indicator may remain constantly lit. This does not consist a problem, and you can use the USB mode normally.
I When trying to execute a command, one of the following messages appears.
[MO drive, ZIP drive, or hard disk related] NO DIR Directory does not exist. INSERT DISKxxx Insert the disk with the number xxx. Hard disk does not have FULL sufficient space. No applicable data exists. NO DATA SAME DIR Directory with the same name already exists. [CD-R/RW drive related] FULL CD-R/CD-RW disc does not have sufficient space.

You can also create original patterns by using either the eight pads located on the front panel or through the use of MIDI.
By default, the insert effect is inserted immediately after the input jack (1) as shown in the diagram on p.6, allowing it to directly modify the signal that will be recorded on the track. By changing its location to (2) or (3), you can process a specific track or the entire song during mixdown. I Send/return effect This effect is internally connected to the send/return of the mixer section. There are two types of effect, reverb and chorus/delay, and they can be used simultaneously. The depth of the send/return effect is adjusted by the send level of each mixer channel. Raising the send level will produce a deeper reverb or chorus/delay effect for that channel.
You can arrange rhythm patterns in the desired order of playback, and program chords and tempo to create the rhythm accompaniment for an entire song. (This is called a "rhythm song.") This lets you construct the rhythm accompaniment for a song without using up any audio tracks.

internal hard disk, and then the power will turn off. The next time the power is turned on, the project that you were last operating will be loaded automatically.
The demo songs have a protect setting that prevents the data from being overwritten. For this reason, the project will not be saved when you turn off the power after loading a demo song.

Caution!

You must use this method to turn off the power of the MRS-1044. If you tur n off the power by disconnecting the AC adaptor plug from the [DC 12V] jack, or by unplugging the AC adaptor from the AC power outlet, the project will not be saved, and any previous recordings or changes will be lost. In particular, you must never turn the power off by unplugging the AC adaptor while the access indicator of the display section is lit. Doing so may damage the internal hard disk, causing all data to be lost permanently.

Immediately after the demo song (project) has been loaded, the volume of each track and the overall volume of the entire song will be set automatically, without regard to the current physical positions of the faders. When you operate a fader, the volume will immediately be set to the new position of the fader.
For a project that uses the rhythm section, use the DRUM fader to adjust the volume of the drum sound, and the BASS fader to adjust the volume of the bass sound.
5. To stop the demo song, press the STOP [P]key.
While stopped, you can press the ZERO [U] key to move to the beginning of the song. Or you can press the REW [T] key / FF [Y] key to rewind/fast-forward in steps of one second.

Turn off the power

When turning off the power of the MRS-1044 and your peripheral equipment, do so in the opposite order from which you turned the power on.

This section explains the process of recording instruments on tracks while monitoring the accompaniment produced by the rhythm section. It also explains how to complete a two-channel mix. This introductory tour is divided into the following steps 1 4. By following through these steps in order, you can experience the entire process from recording the first tracks to completing your song. Step 1: Preparations before recording Make recording preparations for the introductory tour. Step 2: Recording the first track Record the first track while listening to the accompaniment of the rhythm section. Step 3: Overdubbing Record (overdub) the second and subsequent tracks while listening to the previously recorded tracks and the backing of the rhythm section. Step 4: Mixdown Mix the rhythm section and the tracks that you recorded on the recorder down to a two-channel stereo mix, creating the finished song.
In this step, we will load a project in which a rhythm section accompaniment has already been programmed, adjust the volume of the rhythm section, and make preparations for recording.

As described on page 14, connect your audio system to the [OUTPUT] (MASTER) jacks. If you are using headphones, connect them to the [OUTPUT] (PHONES) jack. Introductory tour

1-1: Load a project

On the MRS-1044, all data needed to reproduce a song you created (e.g., the recorded contents of the tracks and the settings of the mixer section) is managed in terms of a "project." Each project contains the following data. All recorded data of the recorder section Settings of the mixer section Settings of the rhythm section Settings of the internal effects Other settings such as scenes, marks, and MIDI-related settings

MASTERING : An algorithm suitable for processing a stereo mix signal, such as during mixdown. For this example, press the [GUITAR/BASS] key to select the GUITAR/BASS algorithm. The [GUITAR/BASS] key will light, and you can now select patches that use the GUITAR/BASS algorithm.
For details on using the send/return effects, refer to p.26

Patch name Patch number

1 Press the [EFFECT] key.
For details on the algorithms, refer to p.75.
3 Turn the dial to select the desired patch.
Introductory tour For this example, select the patch named "StrmBeat" (number 34).
The [EFFECT] key will light, and a screen will appear, allowing you to select a patch for the internal effects. A "patch" is a set of previously saved settings for an internal effect. A newly created project contains patches for the insert effect, and you can instantly change effect settings simply by selecting one of these patches.
4 Press the [EXIT] key. 2 Use the ALGORITHM keys to select an algorithm

for the insert effect.

You will return to the main screen.
An "algorithm" is a combination of effect modules (individual effects) that the insert effect lets you use simultaneously. Insert effect patches are organized according to their algorithm. This means that when selecting an insert effect patch, you start by selecting the algorithm that is appropriate for the instrument you will be recording, or for the desired purpose. There are four algorithms, as follows. GUITAR/BASS : An algorithm suitable for recording guitar/bass. MIC : An algorithm suitable for vocals or mic recording. LINE : An algorithm suitable mainly for recording stereo-output instruments such as synthesizer or electric piano.
If you want to record without sending the sound through the insert effect, press the [BYPASS/TUNER] key in the main screen. This will bypass the insert effect. When you press the [BYPASS/TUNER] key once again it will go dark, and bypass will be disabled.
2-3: Select a track and record
Now we will set the recording level, and record the sound of the guitar (with the insert effect applied) on track 1.
1 While playing your instrument, turn the [REC
LEVEL] control to adjust the recording level. By default, the insert effect is inserted before the [REC LEVEL] control. For this reason, the recording level may change if you change the insert effect patch. Re-adjust the
recording level after selecting the insert effect patch.

INSERT EFFECT

Operating fader 1 simply changes the level at which the recording source is being monitored, and will not affect the recording level. If necessary, you can operate the DRUM/BASS faders to adjust the volume balance with the rhythm song. When you are finished adjusting the monitor level, press the STOP [P] key to stop the rhythm song.

2 With the recorder stopped, repeatedly press status
key 1 to make the key light red. Status keys 1 6, 7/8, and 9/10 are used to switch channelmuting on/off and to select the recording track. Each time you press a status key, the key will cycle through the following states: lit green (channel= mute off) dark (channel= mute on) lit red (selected as the recording track). When track 1 is selected as the recording track (the status key 1 will change from green to red), the input signal routing will change as follows. Introductory tour

The following diagram shows an example of when the MODULATION/DELAY module effect is changed from "CHORUS" to "FLANGER."

Patch level

Strictly speaking, the patch level is not an effect module, but is one of the parameters included in the patch.

Effect type

Some effect modules have only one effect type. For such modules, there will be no screen for selecting the effect type.
10. When you have finished editing, press the [EXIT]
key. You will return to the patch select screen.
Be aware that if you return to the patch select screen and select another patch, the edited contents will be lost. If you want to keep the results of your editing, refer to the following section.
If the contents of a patch have been edited, the "EDIT" indicator in the upper part of the display will change to "EDITED."
6. Use the cursor [Q]/[W] keys to select the effect
parameter that you want to edit. The following diagram shows an example of what you see when you have selected the DEPTH parameter of the "FLANGER" effect.
Storing an insert effect patch
A patch you edited can be stored in any location of the same algorithm. You can also store an existing patch in another location to create a copy of that patch.
1. Press the [EFFECT] key, and then press the [EDIT]
key. The currently selected patch can now be edited.

Effect parameter

2. Press the [TOTAL] key, and use the cursor [Q]/[W]
keys to make the display read "STORE."
7. Turn the dial to change the setting.
For details on the effect types that can be selected for each effect module, and on the effect parameters of each type, refer to the appendix ( p.98) at the end of this manual.
A screen will appear in which you can specify the storedestination patch number.
8. Repeat steps to make the desired edits for

other modules.

4. Turn the dial to select the store-destination patch
number, and press the [ENTER] key. The display will ask "SURE?"

When using MIDI Timing Clock messages transmitted from the MRS-1044 to synchronize the operation of an exter nal MIDI device, you should also tur n on transmission for Song Position Pointer and Start/Stop/Continue messages as well as Timing Clock. When transmitting Timing Clock from the MRS-1044, we recommend that you turn the drum/bass MIDI channels OFF. Synchronization may become unstable if MIDI messages other than timing clock are also being transmitted.
Specifying transmission of Song Position Pointer messages (SPP)
You can specify whether Song Position Pointer messages will be transmitted. Song Position Pointer is a MIDI message that indicates the current measure position. Normally it is used in conjunction with Timing Clock. When the display indicates "SPP," turn the dial to select one of the following settings.
ON (transmission on): The appropriate Start/ Stop/Continue message will be transmitted when the MRS-1044 stops or begins running (default setting). OFF (transmission off): Start/Stop/Continue messages will not be transmitted.
ON (transmission on): MIDI Song Position Pointer messages will be transmitted when a Locate operation is performed on the MRS-1044 (default setting). OFF (transmission off): Song Position Pointer messages will not be transmitted.
This section explains how to use functions such as the MRS-1044's built-in tuner, and how to change the function of the foot switch.
With the default settings of the MRS-1044, a separately sold foot switch (ZOOM FS01) connected to the [FOOT SW] jack can be used to play/stop the MRS-1044. If you want to use the foot switch to perform manual punch-in/out recording ( p.33), use the following procedure to change the internal setting.
The MRS-1044 has a built-in chromatic tuner that can be used when tuning an instrument (e.g., guitar or bass) connected to the [INPUT 1/2] jacks. Here's how to use the tuner.
1. Connect the instrument that you want to tune to
the [INPUT 1/2] jack, and turn on the [ON/OFF] key for the jack to which you connected it.
2. In the main screen, press the [EFFECT] key, and
then press one of the lit ALGORITHM keys. The patch currently selected for the insert effect will be displayed.
2. Use the cursor [E]/[R] keys to make the display read "UTILITY SYSTEM," and press the [ENTER] key. 3. Use the cursor [E]/[R] keys to make the display
read "UTILITY FOOT SW," and press the [ENTER] key. The function currently assigned to the foot switch will be displayed.
It is not possible to use the tuner from a screen that shows a send/return effect patch.
3. Press the [BYPASS/TUNER] key.
