Model D2424LV Quick Operation Guide
Preparation for the current drive
The D2424LV has a slot for an optional hard disk. First you need to install a hard disk into the
caddy 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:
Hard disk unit
Fixing screws
Caddy
<Note>
Be sure to turn off the power to the D2424LV (or remove the power cable from the AC outlet) before
installing a hard disk.
Installing a hard disk in the caddy
First, you need to disassemble the caddy included in the package so that you can install a hard disk into
it.
• Disassembling the caddy
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 caddy. 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 caddy.
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.
6
Model D2424LV Quick Operation Guide
• Connecting cables
1.Connect the cables in the caddy 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 caddy 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.
7
Model D2424LV Quick Operation Guide
• Installing the removable case in the recorder
1. Install the caddy (containing a hard disk inside) into the slot.
Push in the case with the correct side facing toward you. (Use both hands to push it in so that the surface of
the case and the front panel become flush.)
2. Use the coin to lock the caddy.
Caddy
Coin etc.
<CAUTION>
Do not forget to lock the caddy installed into the slot.
When locking or unlocking the caddy with the coin, make sure that the recorder's power is off.
• Connecting a detachable controller
1. Attach a detachable controller (included) to the hooks on the front panel.
2. Securely insert the controller’s connector cable to the connector on the front panel.
Instead of using the controller, you may use an optional extension cable (Model 8551B). Consult your dealer
for more information.
Model 8551B Optional extension cable
Consult the dealer you purchased the recorder from or our sales office about information on
the extension cable.

Formatting a hard disk drive
After installing a hard disk drive into the recorder, you must format the disk; otherwise you cannot
record or playback any data. Note that the following explanation assumes that the disk is
unformatted. If you want to know how to reformat a formatted disk, see the Reference manual.
<CAUTION>
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.
Flashing
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

Consequently, all programs in the current drive
will adhere to the sampling frequency used at
formatting. You can change the format, however, after compiling a program.
In other words, a variety of programs with different sampling frequencies can be installed on
the current drive. But alterable frequencies will
be limited, depending on quantization at formatting. For details, refer to page “23”.

Formatting this way, the recorder
assumes that all sectors in the

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 time code) 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.

SEL] key to display the REMAIN time indication, which indicates the available recording time and recording
space in the selected Time Base unit.
Press the [DISP SEL] key to return to the previous Time Base display.
<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.

<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 PUT]
terminal of the recorder to the [WORD INPUT] 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.
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 “16”
for details about the digital multitrack recording using a digital mixing console.

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 16bit or 24bit>, <48 kHz 16bit or 24bit>, <88.2 kHz 24 bit> or <96 kHz 24bit>) are fixed
when formatting. Therefore, the sampling frequency of a digital device connected to the recorder must match
the recorder's sampling frequency.
In this recorder, the program to be complied in the current drive after formatting can be changed to any
sampling frequency. When several programs recorded using different sampling frequencies are in the current drive, sampling frequencies must be confirmed at each change of the program.

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). Set the recording tracks
on this recorder to input monitoring status so that you
can check the level adjustment.
The flashing track indicators turn off.
6. Hold down the [STOP] button and press the
[REWIND] button to locate the top of the Program

2.Press the [RECORD] button once. (The RECORD LED
flashes.)
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.
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.
<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.
16
Model D2424LV 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:

Undo
• You make a new recording.
• You perform a new edit (Copy/Paste, Move/Paste, Auto
Punch in/out, Erase, etc.).
• You turn off the power to the recorder.
• You select a different Program.

Model D2424LV Quick Operation Guide
Basic digital recording
In the following, basic multi-recording of adat digital signals will be carried out on the assumption that a
digital mixer is connected to D2424LV (To output adat digital signals from the digital mixer, refer to the
Operating Manual of the digital mixer you are using). Prior to operation, D2424LV must be set to the “Initial
state.”
"DIGITAL" will be lit if set to the asynchronous mode while
a correct adat digital signal is being input from the digital
mixer, and "EXT" will also be lit if set to the synchronous
mode. If it is locked to the word signal, "WORD" will be lit.

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.
5. Press and hold down the [RECORD] button and
press the [PLAY] button. (Take)
The “ready” track’s indicator (a small square) flashes on
the display.
Play the sound source accompanying the Track 1 sound in
the same way as during the rehearsal.
2. Press the [RECORD] button once.
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.”
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)
If you are not satisfied with your overdubbing, perform
the Undo function and record again.
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.
In the same way, overdub the necessary tracks.
4. When you finish rehearsing, locate the top of the
Program for the actual take.
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.
6. Start recording on the master recorder. (Take)
2. Locate the top of the Program on this recorder.
7. Press the [PLAY] button on this recorder to start
playing the Program from the beginning.
3. Set the master recorder to REC-STANDBY mode.
8. When mixdown is completed, stop the master
recorder and this recorder.
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.

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

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

Basic Locate function
The Locate function enables you to locate the desired point (move the current position of the recorder)
immediately. There are two locate methods: storing the desired locate point (time or bar/beat/clock
value) into the memory keys, and locating the point without storing it.
This section explains “Locating the top of the Program” and “Locating the last recording point in the Program”
and do not involve storing locate points. Refer to the Reference Manual for information on storing and
locating locate points.
On this recorder, the top of the Program on the disk is called “ABS 0” and the end of the recorded area is called “REC END.” (If the
Program has no data recorded, ABS 0 corresponds to REC END.) You can use this function to locate the ABS 0 or REC END point
immediately, regardless of the current recorder position.

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.
<CAUTION>
• When creating a new program, the initial settings such as the tempo map are copied from the current
program. For example, if the default tempo map is edited in the current program, the edited tempo map is
copied to the newly created program.
• A new compilation is possible only when the “Chain Play?” (Setup of the chain play mode) menu in the
SETUP mode is set to “Off.” If the [PGM SEL] key is pressed when the “Chain Play?” menu is set in other than
the “Off” mode, the recorder will enter the “Chain Play mode”. Before starting compilation, check that the
“Chain Play?” is “Off” and if it is not, be sure to reset it to “Off.”
1. While this recorder is stopped, press the [PGM SEL]
key.
Normally, any new program that is compiled will be
in the sampling frequency set when formatting the
current drive.
However, in this recorder, it is possible to change the
program sampling frequency.
In other words, programs with different sampling
frequencies can be made in the current drive and
thus recordingd can be matched to a chosen task.
For details refer to the next page.

Changing the program FS
In the following, we will change a program’s sampling frequency in the current drive.
IN general, tha sampling frequency of the program made in the current drive will be the value set during
the most recent formatting of the current drive. But even after a program has been made, the sampling
frequency can be changed. However, the changes will be limited as follows depending on the quantizing
figure when formatting.
<Note>
• Do not change the sampling ferquency of a completed program.
• Changing of the sampling frequency will be limited by the quantizing figure (16bit or 24bit) set at
formatting of the current drive.
Current drive formatting by 24bit:
A program in 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz or 96kHz can be made.
Current drive formatting by 16bit:
A program in 44.1kHz or 48kHz can be made.
• Please remember the following points should there be programs with a different FS in the current
drive.
* Do not copy or paste between programs with different FS. Fostex cannot take responsibility in
compensation of data which had been “copied” or “pasted” between programs with different FS.
* In the section “Digital recording” explained above, be sure to set the external digital equipment
sampling frequency the same as that of the program.
1. First, start the program in which the FS is to be
changed by using the “program change” menu
explained above.
5.Exit from the SETUP mode by pressing the [EXIT/
NO] key or [STOP] button.
<Note>
2. Press the [SETUP] key to enter the SETUP mode.
If you change the FS (44.1 or 48kHz) of a program
in the 24-track mode to 88.2 or 96kHz, the
program automatically changes to the 8-track
mode and track numbers 1 through 8 on the
display are lit.
The display will change to SETUP mode.
3. Rotate the Jog dial to display the “Sample Rate?”
menu and then press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
When the [EXECUTE/YES] key is pressed, the FS figure of
the current activated program will flash and the recorder
will enter the editing mode.
The following shows display examples when

the speed, and rotating it counter-clockwise decreases the
speed.
1. You have turned off and on the power to this recorder.
The pitch data will be reset to 0.0%.
To continue the playback with the Vari Pitch function
on, press the [EXIT/NO] key. This recorder exits Vari Pitch
data edit mode, indicates the previous Time Base display,
and continues playing with the Vari Pitch you just set.
2. You must press the [EXECUTE/YES] key while
holding down the [SHIFT] key to turn the "SLAVE
mode" on (the setting pitch data remains).
3. You set "Digital In" of the SETUP mode to a “Sync”
mode ("SPDIF: Sync" or "adat: Sync") and the
recorder is locking to the external clock from DIGITAL
IN or WORD IN. In consequence, “DIGITAL” and “EXT”
indicators light in the display.
5. To turn off Vari Pitch mode, press the [VARI PITCH]
key.
The VARI PITCH LED turns off, the Vari Pitch function is
cancelled, and this recorder resumes playback at normal
speed.
