D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
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
Removable case
Lock-unlock key
<Note>
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.

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Connecting cables
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
<Note>
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.
1.Assemble the case by installing the covers.
After you assemble the case, store the case in a place not subject to magnetic fields. If you remove the case
from the recorder and store or move the unit, cover the connectors on the removable case with the dust cover
(included in the package) to protect the hard disk from building up static electricity and dust.
Do not touch the connectors with your fingers to avoid static electricity.

The time required for the format is longer but the reliability is enhanced.
In general, it is best to select
this default format type.
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

(*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 recorder’s 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.

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.)
<Note>
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.

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
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.
<Note>
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)
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)
1-8 to ANALOG INs 1-8 of the D824.
With this example, you can make simultaneous eighttrack recordings.
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 D824’s ANALOG INs and the mixer’s BUSS OUTs
(GROUP OUTs) so that you can make connections from
the front.

<Hints>
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.

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Connections when using the D1624
Connecting a mixer that has sixteen TAPE INs
and eight BUSS OUTs (or GROUP OUTs)
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) 1-8 to ANALOG INs 1-8 of the D1624.
With this example, you can make simultaneous eighttrack recordings (track 1-8, or 9-16).
<Hints>
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.
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.
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.

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Connecting a digital mixer
To connect the recorder to a digital recording mixing console, refer to the following examples.
<CAUTION>
• 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.

<Hints>
* 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.

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Basic recording
After you finish preparing a recording media and connecting a mixer, you can start basic recording
using this recorder.
Initial settings
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.
Locate the top of the selected
Program (ABS 0).
Turn off AUTO PUNCH mode.
(The REHEARSAL and TAKE
LEDs go off.)
Turn off AUTO RTN mode and AUTO
PLAY mode. (AUTO RTN and AUTO
PLAY indicators turn off.)
The STORE key and RECALL
key LEDs turn off.
Turn off the TRACK SHIFT key LED.
Set all RECORD TRACK select keys to
“SAFE.” The track indicators (square
frames) turn off.
Stop the recorder. (The STOP
button LED turn off.)
Turn off the Vari Pitch function. (The
VARI PITCH key LED turns off.)
About Sampling Frequency
The sampling frequency is important when recording a digital source, as described later in "Basic
digital recording", but is not as important when recording analog source.
As described earlier in "Formatting a hard disk drive", the sampling frequency and quantization of
the current drive (<44.1 kHz 16 bit or 24 bit>, <48 kHz 16 bit or 24 bit> or <96 kHz 24 bit>) are
fixed when formatting. Therefore, the sampling frequency of a digital device connected to the
recorder must match the recorder's sampling frequency.
For example, if you record a CD source digitally, the recorder's sampling frequency must be 44.1
kHz because the sampling frequency of a CD source is 44.1 kHz. If you use the 48 kHz digital signal
of adat, the recorder's sampling frequency must be 48 kHz.
The sampling frequency selected when formatting the disk is indicated in the display. Please note
that no indication means the disk is formatted at 96 kHz sampling frequency.

Adjusting the recording level
This recorder does not have any recording level controls.
You need to adjust the recording level on the device that
outputs recording data. Use the group master faders on
the mixer (faders that control the output level of BUSS
OUTs 1-8). Set the recording tracks on this recorder to
input monitoring status so that you can check the level
adjustment.
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.
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.
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 [0] to [3] 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.
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.
17
<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.
D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
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.
<Note>
After recording
You can repeatedly use the Undo/Redo functions until you
perform one of the following operations:

Basic digital recording
Assuming that the recorder is connected to an external digital mixing console, let's make a basic multitrack
recording of "adat" digital signals. (See the instruction manual of the digital mixing console about how to
output "adat" digital signals from the console.) To make a multitrack recording of "adat" digital signals by
connecting the recorder to a digital mixing console, you first have to set "Digital In (D. In?)" and "Digital Out
(D. Out?)" in the SETUP mode to input and output "adat" digital signals, as well as to set "Reference clock
(Clock Sel?)".
Selecting Digital In
If you select [adat:Async] when the normal "adat" digital
signals are fed from the digital mixing console, [DIGITAL]
will light. If you select [adat:Sync], [DIGITAL] and [EXT
SYNC] will light.
<About Digital In selection>
Besides the default [Analog] setting, you can select the desired
setting from [SPDIF:Async], [SPDIF:Sync], [adat:Async] and
[adat:sync].

D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Multitrack recording using overdubbing
Multitrack recording is a term for the series of processes in which you record various sound sources to
different tracks and combine them into two mixes (L and R). This recording involves an important
process called “overdubbing,” in which you record additional sound sources to different tracks while
monitoring the input sound and listening to the recorded sound. The following procedure assumes that
you have already recorded a rhythm section using a drum machine on Track 1.
Initialize the recorder.
1. Press the RECORD TRACK select key of the
desired overdubbing track to set it in READY
mode.
The “ready” track’s indicator (a small square) flashes on the
display.
4. When you finish rehearsing, locate the top of the
Program for the actual take.
5. Press and hold down the RECORD button and
press the PLAY button. (Take)
Play the sound source accompanying the Track 1 sound in
the same way as during the rehearsal.
2. Press the RECORD button once.
The ready tracks enter input monitoring status, and the other
tracks enter playback monitoring status.
3. Press the PLAY button to play the Program from
the beginning. (Rehearsal)
6. When you finish overdubbing, stop this unit,
locate the top of the Program, and play the
overdubbed sound as explained in the “Basic
Recording And Playback.”
Adjust the level of the playback monitoring sound (rhythm
sound on Track 1) on the mixer. Play the sound source to
overdub and adjust the recording level on the mixer.
If you are not satisfied with your overdubbing, perform the
Undo function and record again.
In the same way, overdub the necessary tracks.
Ping-pong recording
Ping-pong recording is a recording process in which you mix the playback sound of multiple tracks and
record the mix on an empty track. Ping-pong recording enables you to use previously-recorded tracks in
a new recording. In this way, you can overdub more sound sources using a limited number of tracks.
The following procedure explains how to ping-pong record the sound sources recorded on Tracks 1-6 to
Tracks 7 and 8. Once you ping-pong record the tracks, you cannot apply effects to the individual tracks.
If necessary, apply effects on the mixer prior to ping-pong recording.
Initialize the recorder.
1. Set all tracks to the SAFE status.
5. Locate the top of the Program.
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.
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.
21
D824/D1624 Quick Operation Guide
Mixdown
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 mixer’s STEREO OUT L/R. Connect the master recorder
Initialize the recorder.
1. Set all tracks to the SAFE status.
5. Locate the top of the Program.
2. Locate the top of the Program on this recorder.
6. Start recording on the master recorder. (Take)
3. Set the master recorder to REC-STANDBY mode.
7. Press the PLAY button on this recorder to start
playing the Program from the beginning.
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)
8. When mixdown is completed, stop the master
recorder and this recorder.
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.
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.
