Professional Digital Multitr
The evolutionary D824 (8 track) and D1624 (16 track) build on the success of their predecessors to set an even higher standard for affordable professional digital recording. These machines are simply the most capable, most flexible, best sounding and easy to use digital multitracks ever. Both the D824 and D1624 feature removable front-panels, which double as remote controls, additional 'ghost tracks' for multiple takes of one or more tracks, sophisticated non-destructive audio editing with unlimited UNDOs, up to 3,770 track minutes of recording on a 20GB drive,.WAV file support and RS-422 connectors supporting the P2 protocol (with optional Model 8345 card fitted). Plus, you can work in three time bases (ABS, MTC & bar/beat/clock), have up to 64 tempo and signature units, and changes per song, record timecode to a virtual timecode track (keeping recording tracks free for audio), and back-up your recordings to SCSI-2 devices or ADAT. Ease of use is enhanced further with the addition of the All Input and All Ready functions which allow you to check all input signals and make all tracks ready with single button pushes. The direct locate function meanwhile, which automatically sorts each of the 100 memories, means that finding a locate point is a simple matter of pushing the PREV/NEXT key. The editing features available are, (of course), superb, completely nonlinear and aided by a graphical audio preview. Full Copy/Move & Paste is
FIVE RECORDING FORMATS In addition to the 24bit / 96kHz capability, both the D824 and D1624 feature 4 other recording formats (16bit / 44.1kHz, 16bit / 48kHz, 24bit / 44.1kHz, and 24bit / 48kHz), making them the most flexible digital multitrack recorders available. And as they record without quality-sapping compression, theyre also the best sounding too.
UNSURPASSED AUDIO QUALITY
First there is the supreme audio quality and superior sonic purity offered by the high-definition recording engine. Common to both employing the latest 24bit A/Ds and D/As, this Fostex developed recorder offers no-compromise noncompressed multitrack recording in one of five audio formats including the new 24bit / 96kHz standard. All controlled by the latest development of Fostexs clever FDMS-3 software. And all incredibly easy to use thanks to the clear and concise interface which enables intuitive access to the wealth of usable flexibility both these machines offer.
A/D & D/A Oversampling
STUNNING AUDIO QUALITY The incredible quality of the digital audio the D824 and D1624 are capable of, is due in part to the fact that both machines use state-of-art 128 times oversampling delta-sigma 24bit AD/DA converters (AD:AKM5393, DA:AKM4393). If youre serious about your audio you should accept nothing less.
Digital Multitrack Recording
2 bit 96kHz 4
With ability to export and import designated tracks or complete songs in the PC standard.WAV format. you can use sophisticated PC-based editing software for audio processing and sound file conversion.
Tracks can be exported / imported in the.WAV format
Scrubbed audio is displayed for easier editing in envelope mode
100 memorised locate points are available for editing
Graphical preview offers fine adjustment when editing audio
achievable across tracks or song programs. The UNDO function is worthy of a special mention as the number of UNDOs available is only limited by the disk space available.
.WAV FILE SUPPORT
If you wish to take audio editing and processing further, you can export and import designated tracks, parts of tracks or complete songs as.WAV files. Editing, processing and sound file conversion can therefore be accomplished using PC-based audio editing tools.
EXPANSION WITH HARD DRIVE CADDIES Hard drives can be exchanged in a matter of seconds by use of a keylockable caddy system - just like changing a reel of tape. Important projects can also be archived to DAT, external SCSI-2 media or ADAT compatible machines - all in native digital format.
HARD DRIVE CAPACITY / RECORDING TIME CHART
CAPACITY 3.5Gb 9Gb 18Gb 30Gb Total Time (16bit/44.1kHz) approx 660 track minutes Total Time (24bit/96kHz) approx 201 track minutes
A SCSI-2 interface is provided for the.WAV data transfer plus the fast backup and restore of sessions to external removable media such as DVDRAM. In addition, an ADAT
with video editors and other professional tools. The D824 and D1624 interfacing options can be further enhanced via a range of dealer / Digital distributor fit optional timecode, AES/EBU & balanced I/O cards.

Interface is present on both machines for all recording channels. The ADAT interface not only allows for 16 track simultaneous recording (D1624) but can also be used for importing and exporting ADAT compatible material, archiving sessions to the ADAT format and, when interfaced with the new breed of digital mixing consoles, used to realise a complete digital recording/mixing solution. Word I/O is also standard, and essential in the modern digital recording environment, keeping multiple-linked digital devices in sync. Finally, both machines support RS422 increasing their versatility dramatically by allowing remote placement, offering compatibility
OPTIONAL EXPANSION CARDS
Model 8345 allows either unit to chase and lock to incoming LTC with the option of referencing to Video or Word clock. The new virtual timecode track can be used to record from both internal and external sources (keeping recording tracks free for audio), while the timebase can be displayed in ABS, MTC and Bars & Beats with a programmable offset of up to 24 hours. Finally, the Sync Preset function features 10 typical patterns to aid easy set-up. Model 8350 offers 4x AES/EBU inputs and 4x AES/EBU outputs for 8 track simultaneous recording at 24bit / 96kHz and connection to professional studio equipment.
VIRTUAL TC TRACK
virtual timecode track
The new "Virtual Timecode Track" feature allows recording of timecode from internal or external sources to a virtual timecode track keeping all tracks free for audio.
maximising simultaneous recording track & data archive
The ADAT Digital Interface is present on both machines. This can be used for importing and exporting of ADATcompatible material, archiving sessions to the ADAT format and for interfacing to the new breed of digital mixing consoles. By recording using the ADAT interface the number of simultaneous recording tracks available is maximised to 8 on the D824 and 16 on the D1624.
For multiple recording takes
Hard drives can be specially formatted to enable the Multiple Undo feature. When formatted in this way, all recording takes are given a unique time stamp by the internal clock and saved to a separate part of the drive, (the number of takes is only dependent by the disk space available). By using the Multiple Undo function you can jump back to any previous take with a simple button push.
Models 5042 (D824) and 5043 (D1624) add a full complement of balanced inputs & outputs at +4dBu on D-sub 25-pin connectors to the standard 10dBV connections which are provided on both machines via RCA connectors.

The recorder is not equipped with any recording medium for recording/playback such as a hard disk drive (in this manual, we call the installed medium "current drive"). Therefore, to execute the multitrack recording using the recorder, you have to separately prepare a current drive. For a current drive, you can use any universal "E-IDE" hard disk drive* which has been tested and approved by FOSTEX. A hard disk drive can be installed in the removable case attached.
<OPERATION CONFIRMED HD & BACKUP MEDIA LIST for FOSTEX D824/D1624>
The updated information on the operation-confirmed HD and backup media for D824/D1624 is mentioned in the following Fostex international web site.
For those who are not able to check our web site, please contact Fostex distributor in your territory.
Preparation for the current drive
This recorder has a slot for an optional hard disk. First you need to install a hard disk into the removable case included in this recorder package before you install it into the slot. The following instructions assume that you have already purchased an E-IDE hard disk unit. Prepare the following items for hard disk installation:
Dust cover Fixing screws Insulation seals
Hard disk unit
Be sure to turn off the power to the recorder (or remove the power cable from the AC outlet) before installing a hard disk.
Installing a hard disk in a removable case
First, you need to disassemble the removable case included in the package so that you can install a hard disk into it.
Disassembling the removable case
1.Apply your thumb to the edge of the case on the connector side as shown in the figure, and slightly pull the cover in the
direction of the arrow.
2.Apply your thumbs to the side of the case and open the cover. In the same manner, open the cover on the other side.
(Caution: Be careful not to pinch your fingers.)
<Notes on handling a hard disk>
A hard disk is a high-precision device. Do not apply any impact to the disk when and after you install it in the case. Do not leave the disk near a device that generates a strong magnetic field. Choose a level and stable surface for installation. Be careful not to injure yourself. Fostex is not liable for any malfunction or damage to the hard disk caused by mishandling. You need to set the DIP (Jumper) switch on the hard disk to MASTER before you install it into the removable case. If the switch is set to SLAVE, the hard disk will not function correctly. Refer to the instruction manual that came with your hard disk for more information on the DIP (Jumper) switch setting.
1.Connect the cables in the removable case to the connectors on the rear of the hard disk.
As shown in the figure, first connect the power supply cable. Make sure that you connect the cables securely in the correct direction.
<Note on the connectors>
Some connectors on the hard disks may be too tight to connect cables easily. Do not apply excessive force to such connectors to avoid injury or damage to the hard disk.
Fixing the hard disk to the case
1.Align the screw holes.
As shown in the figure, align the screw holes on the side of the disk with the holes on the case.
2.Insert four included fixing screws (two screws on each side) and tighten them.
Align the screw holes on the other side of the hard disk with the holes on the case.
Tighten four screws (two on each side).
<Note on tightening the screws>
Do not tighten the screws too much. Otherwise, you may damage the case.
Assembling the case
When you assemble the case, follow the note below: If a projecting part on the hard disk touches the cover, apply the insulation seal (included in the package) to the surface of the case where the part would touch. If you use the disk with its part touching the cover, a short-circuit may occur, leading to a malfunction.
Be sure to connect the recorder to the power supply specified in the specification section of the Reference manual. Do not use an AC outlet of any other voltage.
1. Turn the power on.
The display will show the ROM version and time/date, followed by [Initializing.] -> [Current IDE Drv] -> [(hard disk model name)]. Then after [Unformat!] appears momentarily, the recorder automatically accesses the Disk Format menu in the SETUP mode and the following screen appears.
3. Press the EXECUTE/YES key again.
The display changes the screen for setting the sampling frequency and quantization (default indication is [44.1kHz 24bit?]). You can select a desired sampling frequency and quantization via the JOG dial from the following options; [44.1kHz_24bit], [44.1kHz_16bit], [48kHz_16bit], [48kHz_24bit], and [96k_24bit_8trk]. The following table may be helpful for you to make your option.
2. Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The model name of the currently installed hard disk appears with a flashing [SURE?], asking whether or not to format the installed hard disk. The model name is shown in *** area in the example below.
Sampling frequency Quantization D824 Number of available tracks Dbits
44.1kHz 24 bits 16 bits
48kHz 24 bits
96kHz 24 bits
8 real tracks + 16 additional tracks 16 real tracks + 8 additional tracks 8 real tracks + 16 additional tracks
<Available recording time after formatting (common to D824 and D1624)>
A greater sampling frequency will reduce the available recording time/space after formatting. Under the same sampling frequency setting, the greater quantization (bit number) reduces the available recording time. The following table shows the "approximate available recording time" under each sampling frequency/quantization. Depending on your medium, the available recording time may differ slightly. It will be a good idea to check the available recording time. See Checking the available recording time (REMAIN) on a formatted disk on page 11. Note that the available time values in the following table are based on a mono track recording. Capacity 10.0G 44.1kHz
16 bits 24 bits 16 bits
Approx. 1888min. Approx. 1258min.
Approx. 1735min. Approx. 1156min.
As shown in the table above, if you format the current drive at 96 kHz/24 bits, only eight real tracks are available, even with the D1624. Also note that data recorded on the current drive of the D824 or D1624 which is formatted at 96 kHz/24 bits cannot save to an external DAT recorder or adat. See the Reference manual for details about the save/load operations.
4. Select the desired sampling frequency using the JOG dial and press the EXECUTE/ YES key.
By pressing the EXECUTE/YES key after selecting the sampling frequency, the screen for the multiple undo On/ Off setting will appear. To select On or Off, the JOG dial can be used. (The default setting is On.)
6. Press the EXECUTE/YES while holding down the RECORD button.
The size of unformatted area on the hard disk appears on the display, and counts down as the formatting progresses. (The following example shows a disk with 2100MB of unformatted space.) Also, the segments in the column of the level meters light up, and they turn off one by one starting from the right end. It will take a while to complete formatting, especially if you are formatting a large-capacity disk.
Multiple Undo function On (default) When set to On, the undo function is applied to all takes (recording, editing, etc.) executed after the disk has been formatted. However, consumption of the hard disk increases, so if the disk capacity is not large enough, we recommend setting this function to Off. Off When set to Off, the undo function is only applied to the current take (recording, editing, etc.). If the disk capacity is not large enough, we recommend setting this function to Off.
This indicates the size of the unformatted area on the hard disk.
The segments turn off one by one from the right end as the formatting progresses.
For details on multiple undo function, refer to the Reference Manual.
When the format operation is complete, the screen changes as follows and disk operation stops.
Indicates the selected sampling frequency (44.1kHz or 48kHz). When 96kHz is selected, nothing will be indicated.
5. Select On or Off via the JOG dial, and press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The screen for selecting the format appears (the default shows [Standard Format?]). You can select the format type between Standard Format and Quick Format using the JOG dial. See the following table about the format types.
For the D824, the indicators for tracks will always light regardless of the selected sampling frequency. For the D1624, the indicators for tracks 1 - 16 light when selecting 44.1kHz or 48kHz while tracks 1- 8 light when selecting 96kHz. When the format operation is complete, [COMPLETED!] appears and the disk stops.
Standard Format (default) During formatting, the recorder checks the hard disk performance including the access time of each block. The time required for the format is longer but the reliability is enhanced. In general, it is best to select this default format type. Quick Format Formatting this way, the recorder assumes that all sectors in the hard disk are good and simply formats the disk. The time required to format is very short, however, bad sectors on the disk will not be found. Select this format type only when using a new hard disk that is checked by FOSTEX.
7. Press the EXIT/NO key or the STOP button.
The screen changes from the format menu in SETUP mode to the ABS Time Base display.
When you format the hard disk one Program (*1) is automatically set up, and ABS 00m 00s 00f (ABS Time Base - *2) appears, indicating that the top of the Program is located. Now, you can start recording, playback, and editing on this unit using the installed hard disk.
ABS time base
You can set up a maximum of 99 Programs, limited by the available space on your hard disk. You can select any Program to perform recording, playback, and edit (Program Select function). You may also name the Programs to facilitate managing individual songs (Program Title Edit function). You can delete unnecessary Programs (Program Delete function). For more information, refer to the Reference Manual.
(*2) Time Base:
This document and the Reference Manual use the word Time Base frequently. This refers to the units to indicate the current transport position of the recorder, in other words, Absolute Time. This recorder also uses MTC (MIDI timecode) and BAR/BEAT/CLK (bar/beat/clock). An MTC value is a relative time value calculated by adding an MTC offset value to the ABS time value. BAR/BEAT/CLK indicates a position within a song of this recorders tempo map based on the MIDI clock position pointer. You can switch to any of these units as follows. For more information on the Time Base, refer to the Reference Manual. When ABS Time Base appears on the display, hold down the SHIFT key and press the DISP SEL key repeatedly to switch among these units.
ABS Time Base
BAR/BEAT/CLK Time Base
MTC Time Base
Checking the available recording time (REMAIN) on a formatted disk
It is a good idea to check the available recording time after you format the disk. To do so, press the DISP SEL key to display the REMAIN time indication, which indicates the available recording time and recording space in the selected Time Base unit. (The following example shows a disk with 6 hours 37 minutes 20 seconds (06h 37m 20s) of available recording time and 2.1GB of space.)
The REMAIN time values are based on a mono track recording. If you wish to record on multiple tracks, you can find out how many minutes of a song you can record by dividing the REMAIN time value by the number of tracks. Check the REMAIN value each time before you make a new recording.
Time remaining When Bar/Beat/Clk is selected, you can see the remaining recording space in bar/beat/click.
Press the DISP SEL key to return to the previous Time Base display.
Setup of the Internal Clock
This recorder contains an internal clock function. Upon finishing format of the current drive, set internal clock to the present time by procedure explained below. Procedures below is explained on the assumption that current drive has been formatted, the program head (ABS 0) is displayed and this recorder is on standby.
Be sure the internal clock is setup to the correct year, month, day and present time. The year, month, day and time are important data necessary for executing the "Multiple Undo Function" explained in the Reference Manual. For details on multiple undo function, refer to the Reference Manual.
1. Press the SETUP key while in the stop mode.
The recorder will enter the SETUP mode and [Signature Set?] menu will be displayed.
4. Move edit point with the SHUTTLE dial and input the number with the JOG dial.
The following numbers can be input at each edit point. Hour Minute Day Month Year :00 ~ 23 :00 ~ 59 :01 ~ 31 :January ~ December :00 ~ 99
2. Rotate JOG dial to display the [Date & Time Set?] (? blinks) menu and press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The recorder will change to display of hour, minute, second, day and month in real time setup at shipping the recorder from the plant (Example is December 8, 14 hour, 48 minutes, 15 seconds).
The "second" figures will start from 00 at the instant the following is executed (Pressing the EXECUTE/YES key). Press the EXECUTE/YES key in reference to the time announcement.
5. Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
The recorder will be set to the time/month, day that was input and continue to function as the internal clock.
6. Exit from the SETUP mode by pressing the EXIT/NO key or STOP button twice.
The recorder will change to the time base display prior to entering the SETUP mode.
3. Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
Hour, minute, second, day and month at the instant key is pressed will be held and these can be edited (Hour display will flash).
Connecting a analog mixer
The D824 should connect to an "8 tape in/8 buss (group) out" or "8-tape in/4 buss (group) out" analog mixing console. The D1624 should connect to an "16 tape in/8 buss (group) out" or "8 tape in/4 buss (group) out" analog mixing console. See the following connection examples for both cases.
Be sure to turn off the power to all devices before connecting the mixing console.
Connections when using the D824
Connecting a mixer that has eight TAPE INs and eight BUSS OUTs (or GROUP OUTs)
Connect TAPE INs 1-8 of the mixer to ANALOG OUTs 18 of the D824, and connect BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) 1-8 to ANALOG INs 1-8 of the D824. With this example, you can make simultaneous eighttrack recordings.
Connecting a mixer that has eight TAPE INs and four BUSS OUTs (or GROUP OUTs)
Connect TAPE INs 1-8 of the mixer to ANALOG OUTs 18 of the D824, and connect BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) 1-4 to ANALOG INs 1-4 of the D824. In this case, first record Tracks 1-4, then re-patch the cables to record Tracks 5-8. It would be convenient to connect a patch bay between the D824s ANALOG INs and the mixers BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) so that you can make connections from the front.
By using the optional Model 5042 (8-8 I/O card for the D824) or Model 5043 (8-16 I/O card for the D1624), you can input and output analog audio signals via balanced connections. For details about the optional accessories, consult the dealer you purchased the recorder from or our sales office.

Connect TAPE INs 1-16 of the mixer to ANALOG OUTs 1-16 of the D1624, and connect BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) 1-8 to ANALOG INs 1-8 of the D1624. With this example, you can make simultaneous eighttrack recordings (track 1-8, or 9-16).
Connecting a mixer that has sixteen TAPE INs and four BUSS OUTs (or GROUP OUTs)
Connect TAPE INs 1-16 of the mixer to ANALOG OUTs 1-16 of the D1624, and connect BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) 1-4 to ANALOG INs 1-4 of the D1624. If the mixer provides only four buss (group) outputs, record to Tracks 1-4 first, then repatch the cables and make recordings onto Tracks 5-8, then Tracks 9-12, then Tracks13-16. In this case, it is a good idea to have a patch bay between ANALOG INs of the D1624 and BUSS OUTs (GROUP OUTs) of the mixer, allowing repatching from the front of the patch bay.
INPUTs 1-8 of the D1624 feed the input signals to both Tracks 1-8 and 9-16 simultaneously. Therefore, you can record signals onto Tracks 9-16 as well as Tracks 1-8 by switching the RECORD TRACK select keys, without the need for repatching.
Connecting a digital mixer
To connect the recorder to a digital recording mixing console, refer to the following examples.
When connecting the recorder to a digital mixing console, make sure that the power of both units are off. The connection examples shown below work only when the current drive of the recorder is formatted with the sampling frequency at 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz (regardless of quantization). If the drive is formatted with the sampling frequency at 96 kHz, DIGITAL/DATA IN and OUT terminals are not usable and the following connection examples will not work. To connect the recorder to a digital mixing console (or an external digital device) which supports the 96 kHz sampling frequency, you will need to install the Model 8350 (8-channel AES/EBU I/O card) which will be available soon to the recorder. For details about the Model 8350, consult the dealer you purchased the recorder from or our sales office.

* When connecting the recorder to a digital mixing console as shown in the example above, unlike connecting to an analog console, both digital devices must be synchronized with each other. To achieve this, use "word clock," the signal for synchronization. Word clock is used to synchronize all digital words in a system. Normally one digital devices in the system acts as a master of word clock, and the other devices act as slaves. All the slave devices receive the word clock fed from the master device and synchronize to it. In the example above, the recorder acts as a word clock master and the digital mixing console acts as a slave and synchronizes with the recorder. The word clock is fed from the WORD OUT terminal of the recorder to the WORD IN terminal of the digital mixing console. * Note that the master word clock setting of the digital mixing console must match the recorder's sampling frequency (44.1 kHz or 48 kHz). See the instruction manual of the digital mixing console for details. To execute the digital multitrack recording using a digital mixing console, see "Basic digital recording" on page 19 for details about the digital multitrack recording using a digital mixing console.
After you finish preparing a recording media and connecting a mixer, you can start basic recording using this recorder.
You need to reset all the controls on this recorder to their initial settings according to the controls and switches on the mixer before you proceed to the next step. This procedure is called Initialize in this Guide and in the Reference Manual. The buttons and switches on this recorder should be reset as shown below. Remember to initialize this recorder before you start a new session.
Playing the recorded tracks
5.Press the RECORD TRACK select keys for the ready tracks to set the tracks in the safe status.
The flashing track indicators turn off.
6. Hold down the STOP button and press the REWIND button to locate the top of the Program (ABS 0).
The top of the Program is immediately located in LOCATE ABS 0 mode.
7.Press the PLAY button. 2.Press the RECORD button once. (The RECORD LED flashes.)
The ready tracks enter the input monitoring status. As you raise the group output level on the mixer, the level meter segments of the ready tracks light up. Adjust the level so that the  to  level segments of the level meter light up at the highest peak. If the OL segments of the meter light up, the recording level is too high. If the recording level is too high on a digital recorder, the recording signal may distort, unlike an analog recorder. Especially, if you are recording vocal or acoustic instruments, the recording level may suddenly peak. In this case, you may want to lower the signal peak by applying a compressor/limiter using an insertion connector. The playback starts from the top of the Program. Adjust the level of input signal at TAPE IN on the mixer and monitor the sound. Repeat the procedure described above to record more tracks (mono track or multiple tracks). You can record eight different sound sources on this recorder simultaneously.
<Undo and redo recording>
If you make a mistake or you are not satisfied with the recording, you can undo recording. Refer to the Undo and redo recording section below.
Undo and redo recording (single undo/redo)
Everybody makes mistakes. If you make a mistake in recording, you can restore and re-do the data that existed before the mistake occurred. These functions are called Undo and Redo, and are executed by the UNDO/REDO key on the control panel. The Undo function enables you to cancel the latest recording or edit and restore the previous state. Using the Redo function after using the Undo function enables you to cancel the Uno operation and restore the latest recording or edit. These functions have some limitations as described in the <Note> below. As described earlier in "Formatting a new disk", if you format the disk with the multiple undo function ON, "multiple undo" is possible. See "Multiple undo function" in the Reference manual.
1. Set all tracks to the SAFE status. 2. Locate the top of the Program on this recorder. 3. Set the master recorder to REC-STANDBY mode. 4. Play the Program from the beginning and adjust the recording level on the master recorder while adjusting the tonal quality and mix balance of the playback sound from the mixer. (Rehearsal) Adjust the input level on the master recorder so that the STEREO OUT L/R meters on the mixer respond to the same degree as the level meters on the master recorder. 5. Locate the top of the Program. 6. Start recording on the master recorder. (Take) 7. Press the PLAY button on this recorder to start playing the Program from the beginning. 8. When mixdown is completed, stop the master recorder and this recorder.
After overdubbing and ping-pong recording, you can mix all track data into two channel stereo data and record it onto your master recorder. This final process of multitrack recording is called mixdown. The mixdown signals are usually output from the mixers STEREO OUT L/R. Connect the master recorder
1. Set all tracks to the SAFE status. 2. Locate the top of the Program on this recorder. 3. Set the master recorder to REC-STANDBY mode. 4.

Recording in a new Program
The explanation so far has been based on one Program set up when you format a current drive (E-IDE hard disk or SCSI disk). You may create up to 99 Programs, depending on the available disk space. Multiple Programs do not interfere with each other. You can record, play, and edit each Program independently, which facilitates song management. This section explains how to set up a new Program on the disk. Refer to the reference manual for more information regarding Programs.
1. While this recorder is stopped, press the PGM key.
The display indicates [Select PGM!] momentarily, then shows the title of Program 1. The Program number and [SURE?] flash.
