Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Fostex D2424. The D2424 is a digital recorder using a 3.5 inch E-IDE
hard disk recording media for recording/playback/editing in 24 real tracks plus 32 additional tracks.
In addition to non-compression recording at quantization 16 bit/44.1kHz or 48kHz, 24 bit/44.1kHz
or 48kHz, 24 bit/88.2kHz or 96kHz, the D2424 is also equipped with adat input/output (by switching from S/P DIF).
Besides analog simultaneous record/playback, because it also complies with digital recording (S/P
DIF or adat) using DATA input/output and simultaneous recording of analog input plus digital input
(S/P DIF or adat), a full digital recording system can be built by combining the D2424 with various
digital mixers.
In regards to save/load of song data, in addition to using adat digital signals and S/P DIF digital
signals, high speed backup of FDMS-3 Ver. 3.0/WAV file through the standard feature SCSI connector, is also possible.
Furthermore, by installing an optional Model 9044 (BAY+CADDY), an E-IDE hard disk for backup or
the optional Model 9046 (DVD-RAM drive) can be installed enabling high speed backup of FDMS-3
Ver. 3.0/WAV files.
For optional units, Model 8345 TC/SYNC card and the Model 8350 AES/EBU card are available and
these will also comply to phasing of the standard feature WORD clock and also phasing against slave
control by external LTC and VIDEO reference signals. Send/receive of 24 bit/96kHz digital signals
by adat input/output, normally not permissible, will also be possible.
Please carefully read through this manual together with the separate "Quick Reference Guide" for
long and satisfying operation of this equipment.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Main features/Precautions)
Main features
The unit’s recorder section uses a recording format called FDMS-3 Ver 3.0 (Fostex Disk Management System3). It uses an E-IDE hard disk as the recording media.
• MIDI clock and Song Position Pointer can be
transmitted according to the internal
programmable Tempo Map.
You can set up a synchronization system with a
sequencer or a rhythm machine without wasting
a track.
• A removable cartridge for easy installation and
replacement of the hard disk at the front panel is
employed.
• By installing the optional Model 9044 (BAY +
CADDY), an E-IDE hard disk for backup can then
be installed. Furthermore, it will also be possible
to install the optional Model 9046 (DVD-RAM
drive).
• You can use the recorder as a sync slave machine
by sending MTC from a connected device.
• The recorder supports MTC, MMC, and Fostex
System Exclusive Message, which allows for
advanced control and high-precision
synchronization from external sequencing
software.
You can set the device number and MTC frame
rate for MMC and Fostex System Exclusive Message.
Also, “MTC Offset function” and “Offset Mode
function” are useful for setting up a sync
environment using an external sequencing
software.
• The recorder features non-destructive audio
editing (a great advantage of digital recording)
such as Copy & Paste, Move & Paste, Erase, etc.
You can choose Time Base (ABS or MTC) or MIDI
bar/beat/clock as the recorder.
• It contains the “Track exchange function” to allow
exchanges between real tracks or between real
track and the additional track.
• A “Preview function” allows for an intuitive fineadjustment of an editing point (locate point).
• “Single undo/redo” for reprocessing record/edit
mistakes and “Multiple undo” by time jump is
possible (On/off can be set when formatting).
• Auto Punch In/Out and Manual Punch In/Out
functions offer two modes: “Take” for a real
recording, and “Rehearsal” for monitoring the part
between the in and out points.
• A “Vari Pitch function” allows you to fine-tune the
pitch.
• The “Program Select function” enables you to select
a song from up to 99 songs and name the songs.
• The [Digital input setup function], to allow digital
recording of S/P DIF digital signals from CD/MD,
and adat digital signals from adat equipment, are
provided.
• A “Bar/Beat Resolution function” is used to edit
audio at the beginning of the beat (round up or
round off to a beat).
• The “Metronome function” can be used as a
rhythm guide for recording.
• A digital output setup function is provided to
digitally output, by selecting from the real track,
any 2 output sources (S/P DIF) or 8 output sources
(adat).
• Various edit functions using an edit point (locate
point), such as Copy & Paste, Move & Paste, Erase,
Auto Punch In/Out, Auto Locate, are available. You
can also locate ABS 0 or REC END regardless of the
edit point (locate point).
• You can also use the DATA INPUT and OUTPUT
jacks to an external DAT or adat, and to save and
load song data (audio data and SETUP mode
settings) to and from the DAT or adat.
• A maximum of 99 Locate Pointers can be
programmed for a LOCATE only feature.
Simply select the LOCATE number desired for swift
location.
• High-speed SCSI Save/Load is also an option by
connecting a non-DAT or adat SCSI backup drive.
WAV file Save/Load is possible by using a DOS
formatted SCSI type disk.
• You can set a preroll time of 0 to 10 seconds.
• A “Disk Remain Display function” offers a clear
indication of available recording time and disk
space (in mono track recording). You can choose
the Time Base from ABS, MTC, and BAR/BEAT/CLK.
• Save/load of FMDS-3 or WAV file is possible by
using the E-IDE hard disk for backup or the
optional Model 9046 (DVD-RAM drive).
• In addition to cueing by JOG/SHUTTLE, digital
scrubbing using the envelope function is also
possible.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Main features/Precautions)
Precautions
• Be sure to connect the recorder to the power supply
specified in the Specifications section of this
Reference Manual. Do not use an AC outlet of any
other voltage.
• Do not install the recorder in locations subject to
the following:
* Extremely high or low temperature, or
significant changes in temperature.
* Excessive humidity or dust.
* Excessive changes in power supply voltage.
* Unstable or significantly vibrating or shaking
surfaces.
* Near a strong magnetic field (such as a TV or
speaker).
• Do not connect the recorder to the same AC outlet
to which devices that could generate noise (such
as a large motor or dimmer), or the devices that
consume a large amount of power (such as an air
conditioning system or large electric heater) are
connected.
• If you use the recorder in an area with a different
power voltage, first consult your dealer or the
nearest FOSTEX service station. You can use the
recorder with a power frequency of 50Hz or 60Hz.
• If you move the recorder from a place with an
excessively low temperature to a warm place, or if
you use the recorder in a room in which the
temperature varies significantly during winter,
condensation may occur on the hard disk or other
parts. In such cases, leave the recorder for about
an hour in the new location before you turn on
the power.
• It is very dangerous to use a power cord that is
frayed or damage. In such a case, stop using the
recorder immediately and ask your dealer to repair
the cord.
Note on repair
• To avoid possible electric shock and damage to
the recorder, avoid contact with water or other
liquids, or do not handle the power plug while
your hands are wet.
• This recorder does not use any parts that users
can repair easily. Contact your dealer or the
nearest FOSTEX service station to ask about repairs.
• Use the packing carton designed for the recorder
when you transport the recorder to the dealer for
repair or return.
If you have discarded the packing box, try to pack
the recorder completely using shock absorbing
materials. Fostex is not responsible for malfunction
or damage due to incomplete packaging or caused
during transport.
• To prevent possible electric shock and damage to
the recorder, do not remove the main unit cover
or reach the inside the unit.
• Do not let water or other liquid, or metal objects
such aspins, accidentally enter the inside of the
recorder because this may lead to electric shock
or damage. Should water enter the inside of the
recorder, remove the power plug from the AC
outlet, and consult your dealer or the nearest
FOSTEX service station.
About copyrights
• It is prohibited by law to use any part of a CD
recording or video images or audio data for which
copyright is possessed by a third party for
commercial purposes such as contents, broadcasts,
sales, or distribution- any purpose other than for
your personal pleasure.
• To prevent damage to the recorder, be sure to
power on the connected devices first, then turn
on the power to the recorder.
• Before turning the power off to the recorder, first
quit SETUP mode and make sure that the recorder
section is stopped.
Especially, never attempt to turn off the power to
the recorder while the hard disk is accessing data
(the HD ACCESS LED is lit or flashing). Otherwise,
not only will you lose recorded data, but you may
damage to the recorder.
FOSTEX is not responsible for the data lost during
operation of the recorder.
About damage
• FOSTEX is not responsible for any “direct damage”
or “indirect damage” caused by using the recorder.
• Before you change the location of the recorder,
pack the recorder in the shipping carton or an
impactresistant case. Make sure that the recorder
is kept free from external vibration or impact since
the recorder is very sensitive to vibration.

<Notes>
• The maximum record time of the program is
dependent on the permissible record time (size) of
the hard disk, regardless of how many programs are
created on the disk. If, for example, there is roughly
30 minutes of record time remaining (REMAIN) on
the current drive immediately after it is formatted,
and a 20 minute program is recorded in Program 1,
then there is only 10 minutes of recording time
remaining for any additional programs.
Simply put, if the total record time is 30 minutes it
does not matter whether the 30 minutes is taken by 1
program or shared among several programs, since
the total of 30 minutes for a recording remains the
absolute total.
Note that some disk space is compensated when
several programs are created on the disk. A new
program cannot be created when there is no
recordable space remaining on the disk. However,
programs produced by "Program duplicating" are
exempted.

• For initial setup, when producing a new program, the
initial setting of the currently active program is
directly copied. For example, if there is a randomly
set tempo map in the current program, that tempo
map setting will be copied as the tempo map for the
new program. This is convenient for producing a
new program with the same setting as previously
made music.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Before Starting
This chapter describes some basic items that you need to know before you start operating the
recorder. All users, including those who are familiar with using tape-based multitrackers and those
who are new to multitrackers, should read this chapter thoroughly to understand the functions of
the recorder.
1. Time Base
2. Recording method and REMAIN indicator
3. Managing songs by Program Change function
4. Real tracks and Additional tracks
5. Input monitoring and playback monitoring
6. Audio file and Event
Time Base
The word “Time Base” appears frequently in this manual. The concept of Time Base is similar to a
“tape counter” on a conventional tape-based multitracker in that it indicates the precise position of
the recorder transport section (the current position).
The recorder offers three types of Time Base: ABS (Absolute type), MTC (MIDI time code), and BAR/
BEAT/CLK (bar/beat/clock). ABS indicates an absolute time on the disk. MTC indicates a relative
time that is obtained by adding a certain value (MTC offset value) to the ABS value. BAR/BEAT/CLK
indicates the position in a song created in the internal Tempo Map according to MIDI clock and
Song Position Pointer. The following diagrams depict the relationship among these three types of
the Time Base.

(This shall be assumed to be the MTC
OFFSET time set for the 00 bar, 1
beat, and 00 clk positions.)
Recorded area
Non recorded area
<Note>
As shown in the figure, the ABS 0 position
(top of the disk) is [-2 bar, 1 beat, 00 clk]
(Time Base-BAR/BEAT/CLK). You can change
this position in the ranged -9 bar to -2 bar
in the “Setting the time signature” menu.
Refer to the “Setting the time signature
menu” section on page “107”.
You can switch between these three types
of Time Base to suit your purpose. (Refer
to the explanation in “Display Section” on
page “ 20 ” for more information on
switching Time Base.)
24
Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Recording method and REMAIN indicator
Recording method
REMAIN indicator
The recorder uses a E-IDE hard disk instead of
a cassette tape. You can start recording sound
sources from any point on a formatted disk as
long as the point is within the range of 24 hours
in ABS time, as described in the previous “Time
Base” section. (Refer to the following diagram.)
The REMAIN indicator displays available
recording time expressed in time value (ABS or
MTC) or bar/beat/clock (BAR/BEAT/CLK)
value, depending on the currently selected Time
Base.
It also indicates the available disk space. Right
after you format the disk, the REMAIN indicator
will show the maximum recordable time and
space on the disk. The following example shows
that the disk had about 3 hours recordable
space after the disk format operation, and has
recorded data of 2 hours 48 minutes 57
seconds.

The REMAIN value is calculated on a mono-track
basis. That value indicates the available
recording time and space if you record on one
mono-track.
For example, if you wish to know how much
you can record on eight tracks, you need to
divide the current REMAIN value by eight.
The REMAIN value display is calculated from
data on the real track and data on the additional
track which will be explained later, and includes
data left over for multiple undo. In other words,
the REMAIN value will be displayed in the form
of time/capacity obtained by deducting data
on the real track, data moved onto the
additional track and past editing data left over
for multiple undo.
As described in “Managing the song by
Program,” the recorder can set up as many as
99 Programs on the disk. Setting up a Program
requires a small amount of disk space. In other
words, disk space is used not only for storing
recorded data but also for storing all setup data.
Therefore, make sure that you have enough
space on the disk before you start recording to
avoid running out of space (the [OVER !]
message flashes in that case).
Gray areas are recorded areas.
For example, if you record three minutes of data
starting from ABS 0 (top of the disk) to ABS
03m 00s 00f on a disk that has a recordable
space of thirty minutes, as shown in the
diagram, then if you record two minutes
starting at the 10-minute point in ABS time (ABS
10m 00s 00f) to ABS 12m 00s 00f, the recording
end point (REC END) is 12 minutes (ABS 12m
00s 00f) in ABS time. However, this does not
mean that the entire recording duration is 12
minutes. The disk space actually used for
recording is five minutes (3 minutes + 2
minutes).
That is, the area between three minutes and
ten minutes (that corresponds to 25 minutes
of recording space) in terms of ABS time is still
unrecorded.
When you try to play or fast forward this
unrecorded area, the time counter on the
display will count, but the recorder will not
access the disk. However, MTC will be output
when you try to play this area. On the recorder,
the top of the disk is called “ABS 0” and the
recording end point is called “REC END.”
25
Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Managing songs by Program Change function
The recorder features Program Select function, which enables you to set up to 99 Programs on the
disk.
When you format a disk, one Program will be automatically created on the disk. You may create
more Programs, if necessary. You may also delete unnecessary Programs.
The recorder also features Program Change function that enables you to select one of the Programs
set on the disk. Programs on the disk are something like independent containers. You can record,
play, and edit each container without affecting other containers. You can also name Programs,
which is useful for managing songs.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Real tracks and Additional tracks
The D2424 contains, in addition to 24 real tracks that can be recorded/played back/edited in real
time as one program, 32 additional tracks (In the current drive formatted at 96kHz/24bits or
88.2kHz/24 bits, it will be 8 real tracks + 48 additional tracks.).
Real tracks are normally used for real time recording of sound sources and the additional tracks
serve the purpose of temporarily storing the sound recorded on the real tracks. In other words, by
temporarily moving data recorded in the real track to an additional track, another performance
can be recorded on the empty real track.
To exchange real tracks with additional tracks, the D2424 contains a "Track exchange function."
By using this function, exchange is possible between all tracks, for mono tracks, stereo pair tracks
(2 tracks) and in groups of 8 track units.

<Note>
<Note>
You cannot record data on Additional tracks
in real-time. Also, you cannot play back data
on Additional tracks as is in real-time.
If you wish to play back data on an Additional
track, first use the Track Exchange function to
move the data to a Real track. Also, you need
to move the data to a Real track if you wish to
check the REC END point of a song on an
Additional track.
Data on the Additional tracks also affects the
REMAIN value. If Real tracks contain no data,
but Additional tracks contain data, the amount
of data (time and space) will be reflected in
the REMAIN value.
<Note>
If the record time of the data existing on the
additional track is longer than the data on the
real track and all tracks are saved on an
external DAT or adat, then the data of the
additional track can only be saved for the time
equal to the real track, and the remaining data
is not saved. This is because the ABS 0 to REC
END of the real track is automatically
recognized and saved. There is a need to
exchange the track using the track exchange
function in this case, as well.
Refer to page “72” for more information on
the Track Exchange function.
<Note>
Track composition of a D2424 formatted in
96kHz/24bit or 88.2kHz/24bit will be 8 Real
Tracks + 48 Additional Tracks.
27
Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Input monitoring and playback monitoring
There are two methods for monitoring track sound (only on the Real tracks): input monitoring and
playback monitoring. They are defined as follows:
Input monitoring
Input monitoring means to listen to what is being input to the recorder so that you can verify sound
quality and etc. Either one of the following procedure is used to input monitor any Real Track or all
Real Tracks.
• Entering any Real Track to input monitoring
To enter any desired track for Input Monitoring, press the
desired [RECORD TRACK] select key to enter it in the READY
mode and then press the [RECORD] button. If the [RECORD]
button is pressed again, the recorder will enter the repro
mode. The recorder will enter record standby mode and
the READY track only will be Input Monitoring.
The recording level can now be adjusted.
• Entering all Real Tracks to input monitoring
To enter all Real Tracks to input monitoring, press the
[TRACK SHIFT] key while holding down the [SHIFT] key.
Unlike the previous case of selecting any desired track,
Real Tracks can all be input monitored even though the
[RECORD] button is not pressed. After adjusting the
recording level, to simultaneously start recording all tracks,
enter all tracks in the READY mode by pressing the
[RECORD] button while holding down the [SHIFT] key.
• Entering a track set to Input Monitoring to
“recording mode”
To enter the recording mode with any desired track or all
tracks in the READY state, press the PLAY button while
holding down the [RECORD] button. READY tracks will
enter the recording mode, the READY track LED change to
constant light and the RECORD LED will be lit.
Simultaneous with entering the recording mode, READY
tracks will be input monitoring and recording can be done
while monitoring the recording sound at the recorder
output.
* The following example shows track 5 in Input Monitoring
mode and other tracks in Playback Monitoring mode.

This example shows overdubbing in which the keyboard is
recorded on track 5 while tracks 1-4 are being played. Tracks 1-4
are in Playback Monitoring mode and used to check the playback
sound. Track 5 is in Input Monitoring mode. You can monitor the
recorded sound.
<Note>
When in the "Auto EE MD?" menu of the D2424 SETUP
mode, the all input monitor mode can be entered automatically when D2424 stops.
For details, refer to the SETUP mode "Auto EE MD?"
menu in page 123.
Playback monitoring
“Playback monitoring” means to monitor the playback sound of the tracks (only Real tracks).
That is, you are monitoring the playback sound on the track, not the sound being recorded to the
track.
* The following example shows that all tracks are in Playback Monitoring mode.
Track 8 (Piano)
Track 7 (Keyboard)
Track 6 (Vocal)
Track 5 (Vocal)

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Before Starting)
Audio file and event
<About an audio file>
During recording, the recorder consecutively records an independent audio file (recorded area) in
each track of each Program. However, you can record data on the recorder at any point within 24
hours of ABS time, and you can intentionally create silence between two audio files. In this case, a
silent part is counted as a 0 file.
Therefore, audio files and 0 files are consecutively created as shown in the diagram below.
The total number of these audio files and 0 files is called “the number of events.” The maximum
number of events is 512 per track (tracks 1-24). After the number of events reaches 507, new data
will not be recorded.
ABS 0
REC END
Audio File 1
Audio File 2
Audio File 3
0 File 1
Recorded part

Audio File 4
Silence
Usually, an event is created by one recording or edit. The number of events increases or decreases
depending on the number of edit points or the amount of disk free space. (The recorder disk
management operates in such way that the number of events will decrease.) The number of events
does not affect usual music production. However, if a small amount of single-track data is written
in many different sections on the disk, the maximum number of events may be reached. To avoid
this “event number overflow,” you need to check the number of events for each track.
The recorder provides an event check menu in Setup mode for this purpose.
<Notes on digital recording>
During analog recording, “0 files” are not created since silence does not create “data 0.” However, during S/P DIF
and adat digital recording, the recorder records “data 0” (this is called “mute recording”). When one second of
consecutive data 0 is input to the recorder, it creates a “0 file” and limits the consumption of disk space. However,
repeating this operation will eventually increase the number of events, leading to “event number overflow.”
What is an event?
As shown in the diagram below, the number of events can be eleven or more if partial recordings
are made. This is because an unrecorded part is regarded as an event, and a recorded part is also
regarded as an event(s). The duration of each event can vary from 740 msec to 23 hours 59
minutes 59 seconds (FS =44.1kHz).

Unrecorded part (shortest: 740 msec., FS=44.1kHz)
An unrecorded part (zero file) is always regarded as one even, regardless of its duration.
However, a recorded part can consist of a group of multiple audio file, as shown in the diagram
below. More precisely, one audio file will be divided into multiple audio files if perform many
editing operations (such as , copy & paste, move & paste, etc.) on this audio file. Multiple audio files
created in this way are regarded as events. (If you do not edit the data at all, the audio file remains
in one piece and is regarded as one event.)
In this example, one recorded area consists of six consecutive audio files. This means that this part
consists of six events.

This is because when you perform a copy & paste, move & paste, or Auto Punch In/Out, the event
is split at the edit point. Also, if a continuous long recording is made, the recorded data might
scatter to different locations on the hard disk, thus dividing the data unto multiple events.

Countermeasures against accumulating too many events due to a long recording plus many editing
operations:
One solution is to save and re-load the data to and from a DAT, adat, or SCSI device. (If the song is
too long, you may not be able to save the data to a DAT or adat.)
In this way, multiple consecutive audio files are optimized into one continuous audio file in some
cases. Set the Clipboard In point and the Clipboard Out points within an unrecorded range to copy
the area (the area that contains multiple audio files and you wish to optimize) between them, then
paste the data starting from the same Clipboard In point. Multiple audio files within this range will
become a single audio file.
<Hints>
Make sure that you set the Clipboard In/Out points within zero files, and that you paste the area
starting from the same Clipboard In point.
* In any case, bear in mind that you cannot reduce the excessive number of events if the target
range contains a zero file.

Formatting and Optimizing Disks
This section describes how to format and optimize a current drive disk and a backup disk.
You can also find information regarding formatting and optimizing the disks in the Quick Operation
Guide and in the “Saving and Loading Song Data” section of this manual.
Formatting a current drive disk
Before you format a current drive disk, specify the sampling frequency and bit (data) resolution,
Multiple Undo on/off, and format type parameters. Refer to the table below for more information
on these settings.

Turn this function on to use the Multiple Undo function for all takes (recordings and edits).
This function consumes more disk space. If you are using a small capacity disk, turn this

The recorder formats a disk while evaluating the integrity of the disk, including the access time
for each block on the disk. Time required for formatting is longer, but you can be sure of a
highly reliable format. Ordinarily, this format type is selected. This option is displayed and
accessible whether you format a new disk or reformat an old disk.
Quick Format
With this simple format type, the recorder assumes that all sectors on the hard disk are of
good quality. Time required for formatting is shorter, but any bad sectors would not be detected.
Select this format type when you format a brand new disk for which Fostex has confirmed
quality operation. You can select this format type only when you format a new disk or reformat
a disk previously formatted with Quick Format.
Erase Format
You can select this format type only when you reformat a disk previously formatted with Standard
Format. Use of this format will erase all data on the disk while keeping the Standard Format.
Time required for formatting is shorter than when using Standard Format.

<Available recording time after formatting>
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 after formatting.

Optimizing the disk
If you are using a disk that was formatted with the Multiple Undo function turned on, free disk space becomes
smaller quickly because the disk always keeps the Multiple Undo files. Optimizing such a disk (using the “Disk
Optimize?” menu in Setup mode) will increase free block space.
<Note>
After you record multiple takes, if you optimize the disk (with the Multiple Undo function turned on), you will
be able to undo only the most recent take. Therefore, if you wish to keep some takes, perform the Multiple
Undo function or use the Program duplicate function to restore the take, then optimize the disk. For more
information, see “Multiple Undo Function” on page 64.

Creating a new Program
You can manage individual songs by setting multiple programs on the disk, as explained in the
“Managing Songs by Program Selection” section of the “Before Starting” chapter. You can set up to
99 Programs. One Program is automatically created on the disk when the disk is newly formatted
with this equipment.
Follow the steps below to create a new Program. The prerequisite of this operation is that the disk
is in an “initial state” where there is only one Program on the disk.
<Note>
• When a new program is made, the same initial setup of the currently active program will be copied as the initial
setting for the new program. If you wish to make a new program under the same settings as those of a previous
program, call up the desired program to be copied before making the new program.
• A new compilation is possible only when the "Chain Play MD?" (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 MD?" menu is set in other
than the "Off" mode, the D2424 will enter the "Chain play mode." Before starting compilation, check that the
"Chain Play MD?" is "Off" and if it is not, be sure to reset it to "Off."

flashes).
<Note>
The program to be duplicated will be assigned with a
program number following that of the program
presently existing in the disk.
If “Duplicate P01 > 05” is displayed as in the previous
example, this indicates that four programs presently
exist in the disk and that the new program will be
number 05.
If the duplicated program is to be checked or you wish
to switch to this program, refer to the next item

Deleting a Program
This section explains how to delete an unnecessary Program.
Deleting an unnecessary Program will expand the recordable area, making your work flow more
smoothly, since recording or editing requires sufficient recordable area (free space on the disk).
Use the [Delete PGM ?] menu in SETUP mode to delete a Program.
<Notes on deleting a Program>
• You can delete only the currently-selected Program. Refer to the
previous section, “Using a Program Change function,” for
information on how to select the desired Program before you
proceed to delete the Program.
• If only one Program exists and you try to delete it, data contained
in the Program will be deleted, but the Program itself will remain.
For example, assume that PGM 01 -07 exist and you try to delete
PGM 05. Program number 05 will remain, but the data inside PGM
05 will be replaced with the data of PGM 06.
The subsequent Programs’ data will move in the same way.
Therefore, it will appear that PGM 07 has been deleted.
If you delete the last Program (PGM 07 in this example), PGM 07
will be completely deleted.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Punch In/Out)
Punch In/Out
What is Punch In/Out recording?
Punch In/Out recording enables you to record over previously-recorded parts. See the diagram
below. For example, using the Punch In/Out function allows you to change an unsatisfactory guitar
solo. The D824/D1624 offers two types of Punch In/Out functions. One is called Auto Punch In/
Out, in which you automatically re-record a specified part. The other is called Manual Punch In/
Out, in which you record data manually (using your foot to operate an optional foot switch, model
8051). Both functions feature “Rehearsal mode” to enable you to practice repeatedly until you are
ready.
• Select a Program for Punch In/Out recording.
• Initialize the recorder.
<Note>
You can use the Punch In/Out recording only for Real tracks. If you wish to use Punch In/Out recording for
data on an Additional track, first move the data to the Real tracks.
Before doing punch in/out, check that the SETUP mode “Chain Play MD?” menu is “Off.” If it is set in other
than “Off,” chain play will be executed.
Auto Punch In/Out
To perform Auto Punch In/Out recording, you need to specify the Auto Punch In point (recording
start point) and the Auto Punch Out point (recording end point).
Previewing and trimming the edit points
Preparation
You can check the stored edit points by pressing the
corresponding memory keys to display them on the
LCD. You can also change the points if necessary.
In this example, use the Preview function to finetune the point while previewing.
Storing the edit points
1. Refer to “Storing the edit points” to set the Auto
Punch In/Out points.
Store the Auto Punch In point to the [AUTO PUNCH IN]
key, and the Auto Punch Out point to the [AUTO PUNCH
OUT] key.
1. While the recorder is stopped, hold down the
[SHIFT] key and press the memory key.
• Refer to page “50” for more information on storing
the edit points.
Pressing the [AUTO PUNCH IN] key enables you to listen
to the sound at the AUTO PUNCH IN point (“previewing
the sound rise [fade-out]”).
Pressing the [AUTO PUNCH OUT] key enables you to listen
to the sound at the AUTO PUNCH OUT point (“previewing
the sound fall [fade-in]”).
<Note>
Make sure that you specify an Auto Punch In point
that precedes the Auto Punch Out point. If the Auto
Punch Out point precedes the Auto Punch In point,
[Void Out !] appears and you will be unable to
perform Auto Punch In/Out recording.
2. Trim the edit point while auditioning the sound.
• Refer to page “62” for more information on the
Preview function.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Punch In/Out)
4. Play the guitar accompanying the playback sound
from tracks 1 - 8 for rehearsal, while adjusting the
recording level.
Rehearsing Auto Punch In/Out recording
In Rehearsal mode, the READY track assumes
input monitoring mode between the Auto
Punch In and Out points, and the sound is not
recorded. You can practice Auto Punch In/Out
operation repeatedly before you proceed to
actual recording. Locate the recording start
position slightly before the Auto Punch In point.
You will hear the guitar performance between the Auto
Punch In and Out points. Otherwise, you will hear the
recorded guitar sound.
5. When you are satisfied with your rehearsal, press
the [STOP] button.
<Tips for rehearsal>
<Hint 1>
Set the preroll value while referring to the “Changing
the Initial Settings (SETUP Mode)” chapter. In this way,
the recorder can locate a point that precedes the Auto
Punch In point by the specified preroll value. This
enables you to start playback slightly before the Punch
In point. (Refer to page “105” for more information on
“Changing the Initial Settings.”) The recorder will repeat
playback data between the AUTO RTN START point and
the AUTO RTN END point if you set the AUTO RTN
START point before the Auto Punch In point and the
AUTO RTN END point after the Auto Punch Out point.
This allows you to repeat rehearsal. See the “Hint-2.”.
To locate the playback start point for rehearsal, press
the [AUTO PUNCH IN] key, then press the [LOCATE]
key. The recorder displays the time (position) stored
in the [AUTO PUNCH IN] key, and locates the point and
stops.
Press the [REWIND] button to go backward. If you have
set the preroll time as described on page “112,” you
can locate a point that precedes the Auto Punch In point
by the specified preroll value.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Recording Digital Data)
Recording Digital Data
Digital recording from an external digital device
In addition to multirecording by connection to a digital mixer as explained in the separate “Quick
Operation Guide” manual, the following explains the direct digital recording method by connection
to external digital equipment (CD, MD, DAT, adat, etc.).
When recording digital signals from an external digital equipment, digital signals to be input to the
[DATA INPUT] connector of the D2424 must be setup for “S/P DIF” (S/P DIF digital signals) or
“adat” (adat digital signals) in the “Digital Input Setup” menu of the D2424 SETUP mode.
At the same time, the digital-in clock (Sync mode/async mode) should also be selected and setup
for either sync with external digital signals or with the internal clock. Digital recording can be done
on the currently active program, and “Setup for digital inputs” will be effective on all programs
even when multiple number of programs are currently setup.
Connecting external digital equipment
1. Interconnect the [DATA INPUT] connector of D2424 and [OPTICAL OUT] (or adat OUT) connector of the
external digital equipment with an optical cable.
Depending on the digital signal (S/P DIF or adat) to be recorded, the [DATA INPUT] connector will function as explained
below.
<Notes on interconnecting>
When using the D2424 [DATA INPUT] connector, it must be set for either S/P DIF digital signals (optical)
or adat digital signals via "Setup of digital inputs" in the SETUP mode. The connector type is the same for
S/P DIF digital signals and adat digital signals but information content of the digital signal is different.
Also, depending on the selected digital signal, each [DATA INPUT] connector will function as explained
below.
<When recording S/P DIF digital signals>
<When recording adat digital signals>
[DAT INPUT 1-8] only can be used.
By setting the SETUP mode “Setup of digital inputs” to "SPDIF Async" or "SPDIF sync," S/P DIF
digital signals that are input to [DATA INPUT 1-8]
will be assigned to tracks 1 and 2 of the D2424.
[DATA INPUT 1-8], [9-16], [17-24] can all be used.
By setting the SETUP mode “Setup of digital inputs” to "adat Async" or "adat Sync," adat digital signals input to each input connector will be
assigned to each track of the D2424.

Be sure to input a digital signal (S/PDIF or adat) of the same sampling frequency as that used on the recorder.
<Note>
Connecting the recorder to an external digital device via both digital input and output jacks may generate a
digital loop.
* If the connected external device has only a COAXIAL (RCA pin) jack for digital output, use an optional
Fostex COP-1/96k (optical/coaxial converter).
44
Model D2424 Reference Manual (Recording Digital Data)
Selecting a recording Program
<Notes>
1. If you already have multiple Programs, select the
desired Program using the Program Select
function.
• Do not connect or disconnect the optical cable to
the [DATA INPUT] jack when digital input is assigned.
Doing so could generate noise in the D2424 and
affect the external digital equipment.
* See page “35” for more information on the Program
Select function.
• When the digital input is set to “adat” (Async or Sync)
and locked to any one among the three [DATA IN
PUT] (1-8, 9-16, 17-24), “DIGITAL” will light in the
display, and the tracks not locked will automatically
change to analog input.
By using this function, analog/digital 24 track
simultaneous recording will be possible by applying
analog signals to tracks 1-8 and adat digital signals
to tracks 9-16 and 17-24.
Setting the digital input
Set up the digital signal to be input and the digital in
clock at the setup mode “Setup of digital inputs”
menu.
The setting of digital input is initially set to “Analog”

Digital recording to external digital equipment
Tunes recorded on the D2424 can be recorded on external digital equipment such as MD, DAT, CDR or adat. In order to digital record to external digital equipment, digital signals to be output at the
D2424 [DATA OUTPUT] connector must be set to “SP DIF” or “adat” (The initial setup is “adat.”) by
the “Setup of digital output” menu in the D2424 SETUP mode. The currently active program can be
digitally recorded and “Setup of digital outputs” will be common to all programs.
Connecting external digital equipment
1. Use an optical cable to connect the [DATA OUTPUT] connector of the recorder to the OPTICAL IN (or adat IN)
jack of the external digital equipment.
Set the external equipment input port to “digital” so that digital signals can be input.
Because some digital equipment must be externally synchronized against digital signals, in addition to setting the input
port to “digital,” be sure to refer to the operating manual of any digital equipment to be used.
Depending on the digital signal that is output, the [DATA OUTPUT] connector will function as explained below.
<Notes on interconnecting>
[DATA OUTPUT] of the D2424 must be setup for S/P DIF digital signals (optical) or adat digital signals by
the "Setup of digital output" menu in the SETUP mode. Although the connector type is same for both S/
P DIF digital and adat digital signals, their information content is different. Depending on the digital
signal selected, the following signals are output from each output connector.

<Precaution against the digital loop>
When interconnecting D2424 and a digital mixer as shown in above schematic, if the
D2424 “Setup of the digital input” is set to adat or “Sync” (synchronous mode) of S/P DIF,
and the digital mixer clock source is set to “DIGITAL IN,” a digital loop will be created and
it will not operate correctly.
In such a case, setup the D2424 “Setup of the digital input” to adat or “Async” (asynchronous
mode) of S/P DIF.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Recording to a Metronome Sound)
Recording to a Metronome Sound
This chapter explains how to record your performance while you are playing an instrument
accompanied by a metronome based on the time signature and tempo specified in the Tempo Map.
The metronome sound is output from track 24 on the D2424.
• Initialize the recorder before the operation.
• If multiple Programs exist, first select the desired Program.
<Notes>
* With the metronome function ON and the RECORD TRACK select key for the track (track 24) to which the
metronome sound is to be output set to READY, an attempt to record you cannot record to this track.
Also, information which had already been recorded on this track cannot be played back.
* Always switch off the Metronome function setting in the SETUP mode after finishing.
<Please remember this!>
In D2424 which had been formatted to 96kHz/24bit or 88.2kHz/24bit (Real track 1-8) the metronome sound will
be output from track 24. Therefore, Real tracks 1-8 can all be used for normal recording/playback.

Storing a Locate Point (Edit Point)
You can store specific individual time data (time, bar/beat/clock) in each memory key (*).
The time data stored is used as an “Editing Point” to execute “Locate Point” or Auto Punch In/Out, Copy &
Paste, Move & Paste or Erase. You can also store 99 (Locate Number 01-99) time data in the [LOCATE] key, in
addition to the Memory key, to enable locate only features. This chapter will describe how to store specific
data in the memory key and how to edit and re-store data is already stored in the memory key. The data
stored in each memory are used for the following operations.
Also, the 99 locate memories can be used for the Mark STOP memory. For details, refer to "Setup of stop
function at the mark point" in the SETUP mode.

<Note on storing the locate point>
When you set the IN/OUT points for Auto Punch In/Out, IN/OUT points for Copy & Clip/Move & Clip, and
START/END points for Auto Return/Auto Repeat, make sure that IN points precede the OUT points and
START points precede the END points.
You can also store time data in the [LOCATE] key, in addition to each memory key explained
above. You can store up to 99 individual time data in the [LOCATE] key for locate only features.
Store the data by specifying Locate Number to locate the intended time data. Note that the
[LOCATE] key always stores the last located time data in real-time. This Locate Number is stored
as 00, and does not require a Locate Number specification to locate it.
Simply pressing the [LOCATE] key directly, will locate that data. This becomes an advantage
since it is possible to repeatedly locate the last located point.
You can edit the data stored in the [LOCATE] key, as so with the data stored in the Memory key.
For more details refer to page “52.”
* You can store locate points for each Program. (You need to select a Program first.)
* When executing save/load of song data via SCSI, these data can be directly saved/loaded.
Save/load by DAT and adat cannot be done.
* All locate points stored in the memory keys will be maintained after you turn off the recorder.

You can store up to 99 individual time data in the [LOCATE] key for Locate only operations.
The time data stored can also be assigned with a specific locate number from 01-99. This means
the desired locate number can be specified to locate that specific time data. The memory data of
the [LOCATE] key can also be edited in the same manner as the data in the Memory key. After
editing the data the [LOCATE] key can locate that point, or even be re-stored as data for other
Memory keys.
<Notes>
• The last data located with the Memory key or [LOCATE] key is constantly stored as LOCATE number 00. However,
this data is constantly replaced after every LOCATE command. Therefore, do not use Locate Number 00 for
independent Locate data.
• You cannot preview the data stored in the [LOCATE] key, though it is possible to preview data stored in other
Memory keys.
* If you use a time base that is not an ABS time, there is a need to priory switch to the desired time base using the
[SHIFT] key and [DISP SEL] key.
* Any editing or storing of data for the LOCATE point is valid only for the program that is currently started up.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Chain Play function)
Setup of the Chain Play List
The chain play list is setup via the “Chain Play List?” menu in the SETUP mode.
The following procedure is based on the assumption that a multiple number of programs are in the current
drive and that a tune is recorded in each program.
1. Enter the SETUP mode by pressing the [SETUP] key
while the D2424 is in the stop mode.
<Setup example of the chain play list>
As an example, if the chain play list is set as
shown below, chain play is possible in the
order of: program 3 - program 5 - program 2.
If the chain list is to be ended after program
1, as shown in the example below, set “EE” at
fourth (“c04”) in the chain list.
By selecting “EE,” the chain play list setting
will be “c01” - “c03,” and beyond “c04” will be
invalid.
“EE” can be selected with the [JOG] dial while
the right program number is flashing.
2. Use the [JOG] dial to display the “Chain Play List?,”
and then press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
The display will change to setup of the play list.

Executing the Preview function
1. Press the desired memory key while holding down the
[SHIFT] key when the recorder is stopped.
2. Adjust the monitor sound of the selected track so that
it can be monitored on the mixer.
Pressing the desired memory key will enable you to
preview the sound at the locate point (edit point) stored
in the corresponding memory key.
Memory key
<Note>
If data stored in each memory key is in the initial state,
all memory keys will be in ABS time 00h 00m 00s.
In other words, the program head value is in the
memory. Should fade out preview be executed in this
condition, the “Void Data !” message and memory data
“00h 00m 00s” will alternately flash in the display as a
warning. However, for fade in preview, this will
function as the memory data “00h 00m 00s” point.

3. Press the [STOP] button or the [EXIT/NO] key.
Trimming the sound while previewing
You can trim the position of the locate point (edit point) using the [JOG] dial while you preview
the sound. At this time, you can also adjust the size of the trimming steps (the amount of offset
controlled by the [JOG] dial).
Trimming allows you to fine-tune the position of the locate point stored in the memory keys
while previewing the sound. Use this function to change the Auto Punch In/Out points, the start
point of Copy & Paste and Move & Paste, and the start and end points of the Erase function.
<Notes>
• You can audition the result of trimming during the next preview. That is, if you trim the position while previewing
the sound for the first time, you can check the result when you preview the sound next time.
• If the locate point is shifted outside the range of the preview playback as a result of trimming, “Void Data!” and the

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Multiple Undo Function)
Multiple Undo Function
To undo recordings or edits, you can use the Multiple Undo (Time Jump) function (explained in this
section) as well as the Single Undo/Redo function (explained in the Quick Operation Guide and the
“Punch in/out” and “Track editing” sections of this manual).
You can use the Multiple Undo (Time Jump) function only for a current drive disk that was formatted
with the Multiple Undo turned on. (See page 31 for more information on the format operation.)
The Single Undo/Redo function enables you to undo and redo the current take of recording or edit
(Punch in/out, Copy & Paste, Move & Paste, Erase). However, if you record a new take, you will no
longer be able to apply the Undo/Redo function to the previous take.
On the other hand, the Multiple Undo (Time Jump) function can be applied to all takes made after the
current drive disk is formatted. To undo a take, select the date and time (at which you finish
making the corresponding take) of the edit based on the internal clock.
When you finish recording or editing a take on a current drive disk that was formatted with the
Multiple Undo function turned on, that take will get the time stamp of the internal clock (e.g.: [10:50.37
11.Dec?]). Therefore, you can always recall the desired take. This is quite different from the Single
Undo/Redo function.

<Notes regarding the Multiple Undo operation>
• The time stamp of each take references to the internal clock of the recorder.
Therefore, after formatting the current drive disk, be sure to set the internal clock correctly. Refer to the
Quick Operation Guide for more information on how to set the internal clock.
• Recording (or editing) more takes will consume more disk space on a current drive disk that was formatted
with the Multiple Undo function turned on. This is because more disk space is required to enable the
Undo function for any take. Therefore, such a current drive disk with a smaller capacity may not have
enough disk space to perform the Multiple Undo function. In this case, performing the disk optimization
in Setup mode may increase the free space available for the Undo function. (For more information, see the
“Helpful Tips” on page 65.)
• If you use the Multiple Undo function, you cannot use the Single Undo/Redo function.
• If you try to use the Multiple Undo function on a current drive disk that was formatted with the Multiple
Undo function turned off, the recorder displays “Void!” and ignores your operation.

<Helpful Tips>
To increase the free space on the disk available for the Multiple Undo function, optimize the
current drive disk using the “Disk Optimize?” menu in Setup mode. However, remember that
if you optimize a current drive disk that recorded several takes, only the most recent take
will remain and other takes will be erased. If you wish to keep other takes, follow the procedure
below, then optimize the disk.
<Keeping only one take>
• First, apply the Multiple Undo function to the take you wish to keep, then optimize the disk.
For example, if six takes exist on the disk, as shown below, and you wish to keep only Take 4, apply the
Multiple Undo function to Take 4. As shown on the second time axis, Take 4 moves up to the most
recent position. Now, if you optimize the disk, all takes but Take 4 will be erased.

• Apply the Multiple Undo to the desired takes and copy the Program.
For example, if you wish to keep Take 2 and Take 4, follow the procedure described above to apply the
Multiple Undo function to Take 2, then create a copy of the Program. (The Program copy will have
only Take 2 available for the Multiple Undo function.) In the same way, apply the Multiple Undo
function to Take 4 this time, then create another copy of the Program. In this way, you can create
copies of the Programs that contain the desired takes.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Editing Tracks)
Editing Tracks
The recorder features speedy, nonlinear, nondestructive editing of independent audio tracks because
it uses a 3.5 inch E-IDE hard disk. The following four editing functions allow “Editing of Independent
Audio Tracks.”
Copy & Paste
Track Exchange
You can copy a specific range of data from a specific
track and paste it to the same or a different track.
Copy & Paste is possible in the presently active program
or also in a different program.
Between tracks 1-56, exchanging is possible in mono
track units or group track units (Stereo pair 2 tracks
or 8 tracks).
Move & Paste
Editing the track name
You can move a specific range of data from a specific
track and paste it to the same or a different track.
Any type of track name can be registered and edited
for each channel.
Move & Paste
You can erase a specific range of data from a specific
track or all tracks.
<Note>
Although Copy & Paste can be executed in a different program, all other editing work can only be done
within the currently active program. Consequently, in order to edit the active program, the desired program
should be selected before starting to edit. In general, don’t change a program until you finish editing
except to Copy & Paste to a different program.
If editing is started while in another program, you could accidentally lose data.
Copy & Paste, Move & Paste, and Erase with the exception of track exchange and editing the track name, is
possible only for data recorded on the real track. If data stored in the additional track is to be edited, move
it temporarily to a real track, and then edit it.
Copy & Paste and Move & Paste
Copy & Paste and Move & Paste might seem like the same function. However, they are different, as
shown in the diagram. Remember this difference when you start using these functions.
• Copy & Paste
• Move & Paste
Using the Copy & Paste function enables you to
copy a specific range of data from a specific track
to the clipboard as shown below (this is called
“Copy Clip” operation on the unit), then paste
the data at a specific point in a specific track.
The number of copy source tracks and the
number of destination tracks are the same. That
is, if you copy mono track data, you can paste it
to a mono track. If you copy adjacent odd/even
tracks (e.g., track 1 and track 2), you can paste it
to adjacent odd/even tracks. After paste is
executed, data on the clipboard will remain intact
and as can be repeatedly pasted, as well as to
other programs.
Move & Paste is almost the same as Copy & Paste.
As shown in the figure, it allows you to move a
specific range of data from a specific track to the
clipboard (this is called “Move Clip” on the unit),
and paste it to a destination track. The difference
from Copy & Paste is that the data on the source
track and the clipboard will be erased when you
paste the data to the destination. That is, you
cannot paste the moved data repeatedly.
Unlike Copy & Paste, this cannot be executed
between programs.

alarm message “Select TRK !”. Select a track, then
press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
Store the copy (or move) start point to the [CLIPBOARD
IN] key, the end point to the [CLIPBOARD OUT] key, and
store the paste start point to the [AUTO PUNCH IN] key.
• If an Output point has been specified before the In
point (the In point value is the same or large than
the Out point value), the display will show the error
message “Void In Point!” or “Void Out Point!” and
the return to the previous screen. In this case, set
the correct In/Out points and try again to copy (or
move) the data.
• See “Storing and editing the locate points to the
memory keys” on page “50.”
Checking and adjusting the edit points
After you store the edit points, you can check them
on the display by pressing the corresponding keys.
You may also adjust the points. This section explains
how to preview and fine-tune the edit points using
the Preview function.
Now the sound data to be pasted has been copied (or
moved) to the clipboard, you can check the data on the
clipboard by following the steps below. If there is no
problem with the data, you can proceed to the paste
operation.
1. While the recorder section is stopped, press and hold
down the [SHIFT] key and press the memory key for
which you wish to check the edit point.
Checking the clipboard data
Hold down the [STOP] button and press the [PLAY] button.
You can preview “fade in” at the CLIPBOARD IN point,
“fade out” at the CLIPBOARD OUT point, and “fade out”
at AUTO PUNCH IN point.
The recorder indicates whether the sound data on the
clipboard is a copied data or moved data (“Copy Clip” or
“Move Clip”) and plays the data (this is called “clipboard
playback”). Monitor the playback sound through the mixer
channels that correspond to the copied (or moved) tracks.
During clipboard playback, the indicates of the [RECORD
TRACK] select key for the copied (or moved) track will
flash.
2. Trim the edit point while previewing.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Editing Tracks)
Erase
There are two methods for erasing data. Understand the difference between these methods before
you use the Erase function.
• If multiple Programs are set on the disk, first select the desired Program. Do not select another Program, or select
another sampling rate until you finish the erase operation.
• Erasing a specified part of the data between ABS 0
and REC END:
• Erasing data from a specified point to REC END:
You may erase all data in the range from a specified
point to REC END in the currently-selected Program. You
can erase data on a mono real track or multiple real
tracks. To erase data on an additional track, you need
to move the data to a real track, then erase it.
When you erase all tracks’ data, the REC END point will
move backward. However, if you erase data on a mono
track or multiple tracks (but not all tracks), the REC
END point may not be affected. (Refer to the note below.)
After the erase operation, the REMAIN time and space
will increase.
You may erase a specified part of the data between ABS
0 and REC END (the end point of the recording) in the
currently-selected Program. (The erased part is replaced
with silence.) You can erase data on a mono real track
or multiple real tracks. To erase data on an additional
track, you need to move the data to a real track, then
erase it. As shown below, the REC END point (the end
point of recording) is not affected.
The erased area is replaced with silence. As a result, the
REMAIN time and space will increase. (You will have more
recordable space on the disk.)

• To erase the data in its entirety from the tracks,
you can also use the Program Delete function to
erase the entire Program.
In either case, you can expand the recordable area
on the disk. Use either one of the erase operations
to erase unnecessary data if the recorder displays
an alarm message indicating insufficient recordable
space for Auto Punch In/Out, Copy & Paste, or Move

After you store the edit points, you can check them
on the display by pressing the corresponding keys.
You may also adjust the points.
1. While the recorder section is stopped, press and
hold down the [SHIFT] key and press the memory
key for which you wish to check the edit point.
You can preview “fade-out” at the AUTO PUNCH IN point
and “fade-in” at AUTO PUNCH OUT point.
• To erase the data in its entirety from ABS 0 - REC
END, it is recommended that erase end point (AUTO
PUNCH OUT point) is stored after the REC END time
to ensure through erase performance. To do this,
move the recorder section location to the REC END
point prior to storing the AUTO PUNCH OUT point,
press the [PLAY] button from that location, move
the ABS time after the REC END, and store.
The hard disk will not successfully access points
after REC END though play is executed after REC
END, however, this makes it possible to move up
the ABS time.
2. Trim the edit point while previewing.
• Refer to “Preview Function” on page “62” for more

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Editing Tracks)
Track Exchange
"Track exchange" is the function that exchanges tracks -- all real tracks and all additional tracks-currently in the programs, in mono track units or in multiple track (Stereo pair 2 tracks; 8 track
units) units.
In other words, exchanging tracks in any combination, as shown below, means that data recorded
on those tracks will be relocated. This function enables effective use of tracks. Not only will it be
possible to make exchanges between real tracks but, by dumping a real track to a blank additional
track, another blank real track is created for future recording.
However, since data in this additional track cannot be directly played back in real time, if the data
need to be played back or edited, it must be moved to a real track.
Also, as explained in the previous "Erase," “Track Exchange” is necessary when checking REC END
in the additional track.

MIDI Sync Function
The following are examples concerning general types of systems using MIDI related functions
contained in the recorder.
MIDI clock sync system
By setting any desired meter at any desired point of the programmable tempo map contained in
the recorder, and by output of a MIDI clock and song position pointer according to the setting, a
hardware type MIDI sequencer can be synchronized as a MIDI clock slave. Consequently, in this
system, the recorder will be the master and the MIDI sequencer the slave.
* Restore the default settings on this recorder.
* Check for the correct program and proper sampling frequency.

Confirming the MIDI clock sync
During recording and at playback following the recording, the time base (BAR/BEAT/CLK) is
displayed in accordance to the setup tempo map, and the MIDI clock and song position pointer
is also output.
Confirm that the travel position (BAR/BEAT/CLK) of the recorder and the travel position of the
synchronized MIDI sequencer are matched.
76
Model D2424 Reference Manual (MIDI Sync Function)
* If correct sync cannot be obtained, re-check the connections/cables and setting of both equipment.
<Note>
In the recorder, the “ABS 0” position is set at “002BAR/1BEAT /00CLK.”
This setting is made in consideration of the time required (it will not sync immediately) for the MIDI sequencer,
etc. to enter into sync. As a result, if the recorder is played back from ABS 0 (LOCATE ABS 0), sync will be
completed by the time it reaches the first bar, and will thus synchronize from head of the tune.
Execution of recording
Various ways of recording can be conducted while synchronizing the recorder and the MIDI
sequencer with the MIDI clock.
MTC sync/MIDI machine control system
The following will explain synchronization by the MTC (MIDI time code) output and the computer
controlling system using MMC (MIDI machine control). In this system, the recorder will be the
master and the computer (with sequence software) will be the slave. The recorder will attach
any desired offset (time difference) against ABS time (absolute time) and output it as MTC in any
desired frame rate. It can also carry out the proper operation upon receiving an MMC and
Fostex System Exclusive Message from outside. In this case, because the recorder can setup a
DEVICE ID number by the SETUP mode “MIDI Device ID Setting” menu, a multiple number of the
unit’s can be separately controlled by changing the DEVICE ID numbers in the transmitted message
from the computer. In regards to the corresponding content for MMC, refer to the “MMC list” on
page “132” and on the Fostex System Exclusive Message, the “Fostex Exclusive List” on page
“133.”
* Set the recorder in the initial state.
* Confirm the program and sampling frequency.

<Notes on MTC related setups>
By “MTC offset time setting” and “MTC offset mode setting,” at what position (ABS 0 or 001BAR/
1BEAT/00CLK) should the setup MTC (MTC offset time) is to be output is set. When setting the
start time of the tune in the sequence software by these setups, be careful of the following
points.
* Offset mode: For ABS
If playback is started from ABS 0, since MTC will be output starting from the MTC offset time
that has been set, the start time of the tune set by the sequence software must be set about 3
seconds later from the MTC offset time that was setup. This will provide time because the
sequence software cannot sync immediately after MTC is output. For example, if the initial
setting of 00h 59m 57s 00f 00sf” is used, set the start time of the tune to “01h 00m 00s 00f.”
If playback is thus started from ABS 0 (LOCATE ABS 0), sync will be obtained by the time it
reaches the first bar and therefore it can be made to sync from the head of the tune.
* Offset mode: For BAR
As mentioned before, because the “ABS 0” position is set at the “002BAR / 1BEAT / 00CLK”
position, the setup MTC offset time can be set to the head of the tune without taking into account
the time until reaching sync, as mentioned above. The length of the time two bars beforehand
will change in accordance to the first bar setting for “signature” and “tempo.” For example, it
will be long if the tempo is set slow. This mode can be effectively applied when using the MIDI
clock and MTC in parallel, and when using MTC for the sync signal while controlling the recorder
with time base BAR/BEAT/CLK.
Confirming MTC sync/MMC
1. During recording and at playback after recording, time base MTC is displayed according to the setting
and MTC is output at the same time.
Check that the recorder traveling position (MTC) and the traveling position of the sequence software in sync are
matched.
2. Send MMC commands such as PLAY, STOP and LOCATE from the sequence software to see that the
recorder will be properly controlled.
When a correct MIDI command (MMC or FEX) is received, “MIDI” in the display will be lit for about 40msec. There is
no setting in the recorder to receive MMC or FEX but it will operate if a correct MIDI signal is input.
* If sync and control cannot be done correctly, re-check connections/cables and the setting of
both equipment.
Execution of recording
Carry out various recordings while synchronizing the recorder and a MIDI sequencer with the
MIDI clock.

<Note>
After this setup, check the following in the recorder (#2) and (#3).
* Blinking of “CHASE” in the display: This will change to constant lit upon completing chase lock in later
operation.
* “EXT” and “WORD” are lit in the display: This means it is externally synchronized against the input
word clock signal.
Check chase lock
1. When the master recorder (#1) is played back, MTC IN LED of the slave recorder (#2) and (#3) will be lit,
“CHASE” in the display will immediately change from blinking to lit and chase lock will be completed.
Check that the MTC time on display are same in both master and slave units.
2. When the master starts recording, the slave will also start recording upon completing chase lock.
3. When the master is stopped, the slave will also stop as MTC from the master will be interrupted.
“CHASE” in the display will change from lit to blinking.
4. During FF/REW, the master only will be in the FF/REW mode and the slaves will remain stopped but
when playback/recording is started, the slaves will immediately chase lock.
<Note>
The unit re-chase window is fixed at “10 frame.” In other words, when MTC of the master and slave drifts
apart more than 10 frames, it will assume that chase lock is disengaged and the slave will match the
position again with the master (re-chase operation). During the re-chase operation, sound output will be
muted. If the drift is within 10 frames, the slave will recognize this and continue to travel.
Because the master supplies digital signal to slave in this system, re-chase is rarely carried out following
chase lock.
* Should the unit fail to correctly chase lock and control, re-check the connection /cables and all settings.
Execution of recording
A variety of recording work can be carried out with all three recorder’s in the chase lock mode.

Connection to external equipment
Connect MIDI OUT of the computer (with MIDI interface) with MIDI IN of the recorder. The
computer sequence software complying to MMC/MTC must be activated.
Setup of external equipment
Sequence software is setup as follows.
* Set for output of MTC.
* Set frame rate of the MTC to be output.
* Confirm start time of the tune.
Refer to Owners Manual of the respective equipment for details.
Setup of the unit
1. Set to same frame rate as the sequence software by the SETUP mode “MTC Frame rate setting.”
Refer to page “113”, SETUP mode “MTC Frame rate setting” for operating procedure and details.
2. Set to the desired mode by the SETUP mode “MTC offset mode setting.”
Refer to page “115”, SETUP mode “MTC offset mode setting” for operating procedure and details.
3. A random offset time can be set by the SETUP mode “MTC offset time setting.”
Refer to page “114”, SETUP mode “MTC offset time setting” for operating procedure and details.
4. Press the [EXECUTE/YES] key holding down the [SHIFT] key, set the slave mode to “On.”
83
Model D2424 Reference Manual (MIDI Sync Function)
5. Set slave type to “Vari” by the SETUP mode “Slave type setting.”
Refer to page “116”, SETUP mode “Slave type setting” for operating procedure and details.
6. Press the [DISP SEL] key while holding down the [SHIFT] key, to change the time base display to MTC.
<Precautions at MTC related setups>
The position (ABS 0 or 001BAR/1BEAT/00CLK) when the setup MTC (MTC offset time) should be output was
setup by the “MTC offset time setting” and “MTC offset mode setting.” In accordance to start time of the tune set
by the sequence software, setup as explained below.
Offset mode: For ABS
Set the MTC offset time about three seconds prior to the start time of the tune set by the sequence software.
Because the recorder cannot immediately chase lock after input of MTC, in order to sync the unit from head of
the tune, set the preroll using the sequence software, and playback from before the actual head of the tune to
allow the recorder to enter into sync by the time it arrives at the head of the tune.
Offset mode: For BAR/BEAT
The MTC offset time can be set to the same time as the start time of the tune set by the sequence software.
Because the “ABS 0” position is set at the “0002BAR/1BEAT/00CLK” position in the unit, as mentioned before,
the preceding time required for sync is already set. The preceding time of two bar lengths could change in
length depending on the first bar’s “signature setting” and “tempo setting” mentioned before. For example, it
will be longer if the tempo is slowed down.
Confirming chase lock
1. When the sequence software is played, MTC IN LED of the recorder will light, “CHASE” in the display will
change from blinking to lit and the chase lock will be completed.
Check that the MTC output by the sequence software and MTC time displayed in the recorder are the same.
2. When the sequence software stops, MTC will be interrupted and the recorder will also stop.
“CHASE” in the display will change from lit to blinking.
3. During FF/REW of the sequence software, the recorder will remain stopped but upon starting to record,
the recorder will immediately chase lock.
<Note>
Chase lock of the recorder by MTC only is permissible when speed difference of the MTC from the master is within
+/- 5.6%. Against the MTC within this range, variable pitch will be constantly applied internally for chasing.
Chase lock, however, will not function against MTC at a speed difference outside this range. Also, when the master
speed difference is large, it is advised to let the recorder learn the master speed by entering PLAY prior to recording.
By doing so, it will be lock faster from the second and later sessions.
* Should it not be possible to chase lock, re-check connections / cables and all settings.
Execution of recording
Carry out various recordings while the recorder is chase locked to the sequence software.
<One Point Advice>
Sync signal “Free” of the “Slave mode setting” menu:
When the recorder is made to chase lock by MTC only, variable pitch will be constantly applied by external MTC.
If a digital signal is output to an external digital equipment from the recorder, it will not be able to follow the
speed difference (MTC speed difference of the master) of the recorder and the external digital equipment, in
some cases, may not be able to input a continuous digital signal.
As a counter measure, the sync signal should be set to “Free” by the “Slave mode setting” menu. Using this
setting, the recorder will enter self operation by the internal clock, after completion of chase lock, and it will be
possible to supply a stable digital signal to the external equipment.
Under this setting, when MTC drift between the master recorder and slave recorder exceeds 10 frames, the
recorder will assume that chase lock has been disengaged and the slave recorder will carry out position matching
again with the master unit (re-chase operation). During the re-chase operation, sound output will be muted and
the digital signal will also be interrupted. If it is within 10 frames, the slave recorder will continue to run while
admitting this drift.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Saving and Loading Song Data
The recorder allows you to select the data (audio data and Setup data) from a current Program and save it to
a DAT machine as an S/PDIF digital signal or to an adat machine as an adat digital signal, or save it to a SCSI
device. You can also re-load the saved data to the recorder. In particular, using a SCSI device enables you to
save and load the data of all Programs (up to 99 Programs), as well as an individual Program. These save and
load functions are convenient when you wish to store Programs (complete or in progress) temporarily to a
DAT, adat, or SCSI device to clear enough space on the internal hard disk to make new recordings.
Also, in addition to save/load by FMDS-3 Ver. 3, save/load in WAV file is also possible and the saved data
transferred to a computer for editing.
Furthermore, by installing the optional Model 9044 (BAY+CADDY) in D2424, it becomes possible to install an
E-IDE hard disk for backup purpose or the Model 9046 (DVD-RAM drive) and in the same way, and save/load
by FMDS-3 Ver. 3.0 or WAV file can be realized.
**********About saved and loaded data**********
The data format and time required to SAVE/LOAD song data will vary between saving and loading with
a DAT using S/P DIF digital signals, saving and loading with an adat device using adat digital signals, or
saving and loading with a SCSI device/IDE2 (E-IDE hard disk or optional DVD-RAM drive).
S/PDIF digital signal (You can save and load each Program individually.):
Following about five seconds of pilot signal (shown in the diagram below), song data in the current drive
is output to a connected DAT. Two tracks of audio data (shown in black in the diagram) are output. To
save data from Real tracks 1-24, two-track data will be output twelve times, which takes twelve as much
time as the song duration (ABS 0 to REC END). To save all data including Additional tracks 1-56, twotrack data will be output twenty eight times, which takes twenty eight times the song duration. Saved
data is also loaded two tracks at a time.

adat digital signal (You can save and load each Program individually.):
After about five seconds of pilot signal (shown in gray in the diagram below), song data in the current
drive is output to a connected adat. Eight-track audio data (shown in black in the diagram) is output. To
save the data from Real tracks 1-24, data will be output three times, which takes the same amount of time
as the song duration (ABS 0 to REC END).
To save all data including Additional tracks 1-56, eight-track data will be output seven times, which takes
seven times the song duration. Saved data is also located eight tracks at a time.

SCSI or IDE2 (You can save and load each Program individually or all program.):
All Real track data and Additional track data is output simultaneously to a SCSI disk as shown in black in
the diagram. Therefore, saving and loading a Program takes much less time relative to a DAT or adat. No
pilot signal or beep is recorded. If the available disk space is smaller than the song data size, you may use
multiple disks (up to 99 disks) to save and load an entire song. You can also save/load WAV files in DOS
formatted disks.

adat format digital recording function.
* When a 24 bit data recorded in the recorder is saved to a 16 bit digital device, Audio 16 bit only
will be saved. Also, when a 20 bit data is saved, Audio 20 bit only will be saved.
* When loading DAT or adat data, if it is 16 bit, even if the current drive of the recorder has be
formatted in 24 bits, only the upper 16 bits will be loaded and the lower 8 bits will be "0."
Likewise, in a 20 bit machine, the upper 20 bits only will be loaded and the lower 4 bits will be
"0."
<Note when saving data using DAT or adat>
Song data can be saved as a real track, additional track or ALL data. Please note the following points
when saving song data using a DAT or adat device.
The save time of the data depends on the time of the song data (ABS 0-REC END) on the real track.
Therefore, if you attempt to save data that exists on an additional track that is longer than the data
on the real track, the data on the additional track will only be saved for the same amount of time as
the data on the real track.
Let’s say, you have 10 minutes recorded on the real track and you tentatively move it to the
additional track (track exchange function). Then you save a real track by leaving that moved
portion blank, which leaves you with only 3 minutes of recording on the track. This means only 3
minutes of the data on the additional track will be saved, and the remaining 7 minutes will not be
saved. If you want longer save time, you can edit the save time during save operations (Go to page
"87" <Step-6>).
This can be done by either setting the save time to a longer save time (however, the maximum time
that can be edited is 59 minutes 59 seconds), or move the data with the longest recording time on
the additional track to the real track and then save that data. Be careful not to erase the data that
you need on the additional track when conducting these procedures. For more details on track
exchange go to page "72."
<Notes on using the optional DVD-RAM drive (Model 9046)>
Please use the following disks for the DVD-RAM media to be used in the optional DVD-RAM drive
(Model 9046). You cannot save/load correctly by using any other type disk listed here.
2.6GB/4.7GB/5.2GB/9.4GB
The headphone jack provided in the optional Model 9046 cannot be used. Do not plug in the
headphone.
Installation of Model 9046 must be done by the Fostex Service Department. After purchasing this
unit, please request the nearest Fostex Service Station.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Saving the data using a adat or S/P DIF digital signal
S/P DIF digital signal (or adat digital signal) from the [DATA OUTPUT] connector of the recorder is
saved.
* Restore the initial settings on the recorder.
* Set the same sampling rate on the external digital device and the recorder.
Connecting an external device
Connect [DATA OUTPUT 1-8] connector of the recorder to the digital input connector on the external
digital device.
<Notes>
• The recorder has [DATA OUTPUT] connectors for an S/P DIF digital signal (OPTICAL) and for an adat digital
signal. These connectors have the same shape but carry different information.
Use the [DATA OUTPUT 1-8] connector to save data. Do not use the [DATA OUTPUT 9-16] and [17-24]
connectors.
• Save/load by S/P DIF or adat digital signals cannot be executed from the current drive that is formatted in
96kHz/24 bit or 88.2kHz/24 bit.

Setting up an external device
1.Set the same sampling rate to that of the recorder.
2.Select digital input on the external device so that the external device will accept a digital signal.
On some external devices, you may have to set up so that the external device will synchronize with the incoming
digital signal.
<Note>
If the external device does not accept the digital signal or if you notice digital noise, check the connection,
cabling, and the settings of the recorder and the external device.
* Refer to the instruction manuals that came with any external digital device for details.

The save operation starts, and the time required for the
save operation appears on the display and a few seconds
later, it will start counting down. This few seconds delay
is due to the pilot signal which is recorded to mark the
beginning of the Program to facilitate future load
operation. Therefore, the actual save operation starts
when counting down starts. Two tracks are saved each
time in the order of Track 1 and 2, 3 and 4, etc. to a DAT

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Saving the data using SCSI
This procedure will SAVE/LOAD using a removable SCSI drive disk (zip, MO, DVD-RAM etc.) that is
a backup disk. In save/load using SCSI, the program can be selected separately or in whole.
A backup purpose SCSI disk is generally used after formatted in the backup format, however, a DOS
formatted (computer format) SCSI disk can also be used to SAVE/LOAD in WAV.
Data saved in WAV can be re-loaded and even directly be read by the computer. Therefore, this
kind of data can be used as music software, as well.
Connecting a SCSI device
Refer to the diagram to connect a SCSI device to a D2424.
<Notes on connection>
• Before making connections, make sure that both the recorder and the SCSI drive are turned off.
• One SCSI drive may be connected on the recorder.
• The SCSI connector on the recorder is a half pitch 50-pin connector compatible with Macintosh computers.
Use a cable with connectors that conform to the standards for connecting a SCSI drive.
• The SCSI drive should be terminated. Install a SCSI terminator, or turn the termination switch to “on” if the
drive has a termination switch (like a zip drive).
• You must format the SCSI disk after you connect it to the recorder. Refer to the “Formatting” section on the
next page for the formatting procedure.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Formatting a SCSI disk
An unformatted disk or a disk used with the computer can also be used. Check to see that the data on the disk
is no longer necessary prior to formatting a disk that was previously used with the computer. Once formatting
is started it cannot be stopped. The formatting process will erase all data. Be especially careful not to erase
the data that you still need. The prerequisite here is that a removable disk is used.
1.Connect the SCSI device to the recorder and turn
the power on to the both machines.
The backup format quantization display:
In the initial setup, the backup format quantization that
is displayed in the previous procedure will always be
of the same figure as that of the current drive
quantization.
This is due to the fact that save is not possible unless
quantization is same for both the current drive and
the backup drive.
In other words, when using a current drive formatted
in 44.1 or 48kHz/24 bit, "24 bit Backup?" will always be
displayed.
2.If you are using a removable disk, insert the disk
into the drive.
3.Press the [SETUP] key to enter the Setup mode.
4.Turn the [JOG] dial to select “Disk Format?” (“?”
flashes), and press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
“IDE1” flashes appears.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
<Notes on saving all programs in several disks>
In the previous procedure, when the left and right numbers were different such as "(05/08)" in the "(**/**)" display
of "Save All (**/**)," it could not be saved in one disk, and indicated that a multiple number of disks were required.
For example, if save was executed while "Save All (05/08)" was displayed, programs 1-5 could be saved in the first
disk but programs beyond 6 had to be saved in another disk.
In this case, if save is continued in the second disk, the same B01 (backup number 01) for the first disk will be
attached and saved. In other words, if "All save" is executed in a multiple number of disks, backup number "B01" will
be attached to all of the backup disks. For this reason, on the disk after it has been saved, it is recommended to clearly
indicate what program is stored in it.
Loading the data using SCSI
Here you are loading on the current drive, the data of each program saved on the backup purpose
SCSI disk. The prerequisite is that a backup SCSI drive is connected to the recorder.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Saving and Loading with IDE2 (E-IDE Hard disk/DVD-RAM)
It is possible to setup an optional Model 9044 (Bay and Caddy) to mount an E-IDE hard disk (IDE2), or optional
DVD-RAM drive (Model 9046) for backup purposes.
With this setup it becomes possible to save/load files in WAV (RIFF WAVE file format, hereafter WAV) described
later, or save/load in FDMS-3 V3.0 (Fostex Disk Management System-3) format described earlier.
<Precautions>
• This model can only save/load in IDE2 (E-IDE or DVD-RAM) FDMS-3 Ver3.0 format. When using
an IDE2 to save/load WAV files, priority format it in FAT16 DOS on another PC.
• Our Service Division will assemble optional Model 9044 or Model 9046. For installation, please
contact the Fostex distributor in your territory.
• Note that the optional Model 9046 (DVD-RAM drive) only provides limited space on the disk,
when using it as a backup drive. For more details refer to page 86 “Precautions When Using a
DVD-RAM Drive”.
Saving in FDMS-3 Ver3.0 Mode
Here we will save files in FDMS-3 Mode on a backup
E-IDE hard disk (or optional DVD-RAM).
Go to the “Save PGM?” menu in the SETUP mode, to
save S/P DIF and adat digital signals, described
earlier, in the same manner as saving on SCSI devices.
4. Press the [EXECUTE/YES] key while “FDMS3” is
flashing.
A menu appears so you can select the program that
you want to save. The currently selected program
number flashes. The size of the program also appears.
Turn the [JOG] dial in this state to select individual
programs or select “Save All” (**/**)”.

SAVE/LOAD by “WAV” file
In addition to save/load by the aforementioned FDMS-3 (Fostex Disk Management System-3), save/
load to a DOS formatted disc by using WAV (RIFF WAVE file format, hereafter called WAV) file is
possible. In the same way as the aforementioned “Save/Load by FDMS-3,” it is possible not only to
save data from this recorder but also to read data by this recorder; because data in WAV file is
saved to the backup disk, the computer can read/write it directly and therefore, playback/editing
the WAV file using various software is possible. Additionally, WAV files edited with a computer can
be read by this recorder.
< Notes when using a WAV file >
THE BACKUP DISK:
• Save/load by WAV file is possible only to disks formatted in DOS FAT 16.
This recorder will execute save/load by WAV file only when this DOS disk is acknowledged by DOS FAT 16. Disks
DOS formatted in FAT 32 will not be acknowledged.
• DOS formatting using the SETUP mode “Disk Format?” menu is not possible.
Consequently, backup disks to be used for WAV file must be formatted in FAT 16 before being used.
If a disk of more than 2GB is formatted in FAT 16, the disk will be partitioned to a maximum 2GB capacity.
In this case, this recorder will acknowledge the first partition only; the other partitions will not be acknowledged.
As a result, the maximum capacity for the backup disk used by this recorder will always be 2GB for one disk drive.
At save/load by WAV file, it is recommended to use a newly formatted disk to prevent loss of data due to overwriting.
DIRECTORY OF THE BACKUP DISK:
• The saved WAV file will be recorded in the root directory (first level) of the backup disk.
• WAV files that can be loaded must be placed in the root directory of the backup disk.
WAV files that have been moved from the root directory to another location such as a different folder, cannot be
acknowledged by this recorder and could cause a malfunction.
FILE NAME OF THE “WAV” FILE:
• WAV files saved by this recorder will be recorded under the file name of “******##.WAV.”
• WAV files which can be loaded by this recorder must have a file name of “******##.WAV.”
The first 6 letters “******” will be the title displayed by “Title Edit?” in the SETUP mode. These 6 letters can be
changed at save of the WAV file and also edited by the computer.
The latter 2 letters “##” represent each track number (1-24) at save/load of the WAV file.
The last “WAV” is the extension to indicate that this file is a WAV file. File names other than those described here will
not be acknowledged by this recorder. For details, refer to each procedure.
Using these specifications, WAV files can be loaded in any single track or tracks exchanged and loaded in the WAV
file. Refer to “Loading of WAV files” in later pages.
99
Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
Saving of “WAV” files
A WAV file is saved by the following procedure. Before proceeding to save, make sure a DOS
formatted disk in FAT 16 is set in the SCSI ID6 equipment. The following explains the procedures
for using a backup disk after it had been formatted.
The E-IDE hard disk (or optional DVD-RAM drive) for backup can be used by the same procedures
at saving in the DOS formatted disk.
1.The SETUP mode is entered by pressing the
[SETUP] key.
5.Select "OFF" and press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.

• Composition of WAV file
A WAV file on the backup disk is made, one file to one
track in the root directory, for a total of 24 files. File
names will be from “******01.WAV” to “******24.WAV.”
“******” is the file name specified in above and numbers
0124 correspond to each track.
An unrecorded track will be made as one file for “Data

will increase compared to the current drive capacity.
FS
kHz
CLOCK
INT
For example, depending on the status of the recording
such as record starting time and ending time or size
of the recorded and unrecorded length, in some cases
capacity will increase. For example, in the case of a
track, which is recorded from ABS:0 minute to ABS:1
minute, and from ABS:10 minutes to ABS:11 minutes,
in the current drive it will be “2 minutes” file but in
the WAV file, it will be a file of “11 minutes.”

If the [JOG] dial is rotated at the flashing point, any
desired number/symbol/alphabet can be input. The
flashing point can be moved with the [SHUTTLE] dial.
Characters which can be input are limited to the
following:
Alphabet capitals (A-Z)
Numbers (0-9)
Symbols (!, #, $, %, &, ', (, ), @, ^, _, -)
Also on the unrecorded track, capacity will increase
as a “data zero” and a WAV file (small capacity) will
be made.
Although up to 6 letters can be input for the file name,
some of the letters/symbols/alphabets input here will
be converted as follows.
Alphabet capitals (A-Z) -> No conversion
Alphabet small letters -> (a-z) Converted to capitals
Numerals (0-9) -> No conversion
Symbols -> No conversion
Other symbols -> Under bar is converted to “_”
• When using a backup disc in which a program
is already saved.
If a program is already saved in the backup disk, depending
on the remaining capacity, the following selectable item
may be added to the Step 6 Save Method.
These can be selected by rotating the [JOG] dial.
9.After inputting a file name, press the [EXECUTE/
YES] key.
"Title" & "Eject" display
Save will be executed and the following displayed.
During save, the capacity display will continue to count
down. For a case where a multiple number of disks are
required, disks will automatically eject and the next disk
must be loaded.
At completion of save, the display returns to the original
time base and "COMPLETED!" will light.
The present disk must be removed and return to Step 5.
This is selected when another disc is to be used.

"Already Exist" (Same file name already exists) is
displayed and save will not be executed. In this case,
change the WAV file name by the previous Step 7.
• In a disk which had been repeatedly saved by
overwriting, access speed could be lowered due to
file fragmentation. We recommend that you use a
disk immediately after formatting for backup
purposes.

WAV?" is displayed, and when the [EXECUTE/YES] key is
pressed again, it will go to Step 7 for deleting all WAV
files on the backup disk. After save, only saved WAV
files will be recorded.
• In a save requiring a multiple number of backup disks,
if the backup disc already saved with programs is
used, "Delete All WAV?" (Delete of all WAV files) will
be displayed due to "Disk Full" and all WAV files will
be deleted. For save on multiple number of disks, we
recommend that you use a disk immediately after
formatting.
• When files and folders other than file names
“******##.WAV” which can be acknowledged by this
recorder are made on the backup disk by using a
computer, in some cases save cannot be completed
as it cannot calculate the accurate remaining capacity
of the backup disk. Great care should be taken when
changing file names and making folders by a
computer.
Loading WAV files
WAV files will be loaded. Prior to this, make sure the backup disk is connected to the SCSI ID6
equipment. The following explains how to use a backup disk in which WAV files were saved by this
unit. Loading from the E-IDE hard disk for backup (or the optional DVD-RAM drive) is possible by
the same procedure.
1.Enter the SETUP mode by pressing the [SETUP] key.
4.Select the WAV file to be loaded with the [JOG] dial.
If a multiple number of WAV files with different file
names (Beginning 6 letters) have been saved, the WAV
file names (beginning 6 letters) and capacity will be
sequentially displayed. If "Eject" is selected, the backup
disc can be removed.
2.Select “Load PGM?” (“?” flashes) with the [JOG]

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Saving and Loading Song Data)
<< Special loading method when using a computer >>
< Note>
WAV files which can be saved/loaded by this recorder must have file names written as “******##.WAV.”
Other file names cannot be acknowledged by this recorder.
Unknown file names will not be acknowledged and could cause malfunction. Extreme care should be taken when
changing file names and making folders on a computer.
• The first six letters will be the title shown in the SETUP mode “Title Edit?” display.
• The last two letters “##” represent each track number (1-56) of the WAV file which are to be saved/loaded.
• The last “WAV” is the extension which indicate that this is a WAV file.
• File name of the WAV file which is to be saved in the backup disk of this recorder will all be recorded in capital
letters. However, in certain computers, this WAV file name will be displayed in small letters.
(*) Method to load specific tracks.
The backup disk in which files are saved will contain files from “******01.WAV” up to “******56.WAV.”
Should these files be deleted, moved from the root directory, for example, into a another folder or the
file name changed which cannot be acknowledged, this recorder will not recognize this file.
When a backup disk changed in this manner is loaded, only WAV files with file names “******##.WAV”
which are located in an acknowledgeable root directory can be loaded.
For example, if the “zero number of data” made at save is deleted from the backup disk and then load is
executed, only WAV files recorded with any other sound can be loaded.
(*) When loading WAV files saved in a multiple number of disks, they can be loaded by a special method
derived from the above method.
Assume that there is backup disc 1 saved with “******01.WAV” through “******12.WAV” and disc 2 saved
with “******13.WAV” through “******24.WAV.”
First, when backup disk 1 is loaded, files in tracks 1-12 will be loaded. At this point, tracks 13-24 will not
be loaded and thus be non-recorded. Next, when backup disk 2 is loaded, files in tracks 1-12 remains
intact and tracks 13-24 only will be loaded.
.........
******01.WAV
.........
******12.WAV

(*) Method in loading by changing the track.
If the two letters “##” in file name “******##.WAV” in the backup disk are changed, it will be possible to
load them on this recorder on a track different from that at the initial save. For example, if a WAV file
named “ABCDEF01.WAV” on track 1 is changed to “ABCDEF03.WAV” this WAV file will be loaded on
track 3.
(*) Method in loading by changing the title.
If the 6 letters “******” in file name “******##.WAV” in the backup disk are changed, it will be possible to
load them on this recorder under a title different from that at the first save. Letters which can be used
at changing the file name in a computer are those only indicated below. All of these letters must be one
byte size.

Time Signature Setting (“Signature Set?”)
Using the “Setting a time signature” menu, you can set a time signature of a given measure on the
internal programmable Tempo Map. And also in this setting, the BAR (-002bar, 1 , 00clk) displayed at
the head of the disk in the time base BAR/BEAT/CLK can be set within the range of -009bar ~ -002bar.
For example, you can specify “4/4 for the first and second measures, and 2/2 from the third measure.”
Setting a time signature and tempo will create a Tempo Map, which allows the recorder to manage a
song using the BAR/BEAT/CLK Time Base. You can also use the Metronome function.
A time signature and tempo setting are required when MIDI clock & song position pointer are output to
an external sequencer.

Setting a tempo (“Tempo Map Set ?” menu)
The “Setting a tempo” menu enables you to specify a tempo at a given point in a song that already has a time
signature setting. For example, you can specify a tempo of 150 to the third beat of the 12th measure.
Time signature and tempo settings make a Tempo Map, which is used by the recorder to manage the song
using the BAR/BEAT/CLK Time Base, and enable the Metronome function. Tempo settings as well as time
signature settings are required when you wish to output MIDI clock and Song Position Pointer to an external
sequencer.
<Note>
The tempo set figure setup here is an approximate figure and not 100% accurate. Therefore, although the tempo
map be matched to a personal computer, they will gradually drift apart. In order to prevent this drift, the
personal computer side can be set to either MIDI Clock Sync or, the MIDI sync output signal temporarily set to
“MIDI Clock,” the figure reset to the accurate tempo and then return again to MTC sync.
• Initial setting: bar 001, beat 1:
120 (001 bar 1 beat 120 tempo)
• Setting range of measures:
Determined by the time signature setting.
• Setting range of beats:
Determined by the time signature setting.
• Setting range of tempo:
30-250/quarter note, — (delete)
• Max. setting points:
64 points
* You can set the tempo for each Program individually.
* The settings can be saved and loaded as part of song data.
* The settings are maintained after you turn off the power to the recorder.
Checking the stored tempo setting
1.Select a Program to check the tempo setting for.
Press the [SETUP] key, use the [JOG] dial to select the
“Tempo Map Set ?” menu, then press the [EXECUTE/YES]
key. Indication on the display changes as shown below,
and the current tempo appears. The initial setting is
“001 bar 1
=120”. This means that a tempo for the
first beat of the first measure is set to 120.
2.Rotate the [JOG] dial clockwise.
You can view the current tempo values in sequence.
Tempo value “- - - bar = - - -” means that no tempo
values are specified after the current setting.
With the initial setting, “001bar 1
=120” is followed
by “- - - bar = - - -”.

Setting an MTC frame rate (“Frame Rate ?” menu)
The “Setting an MTC frame rate” menu enables you to set the frame rate for MTC output from the MIDI OUT
connector of the recorder to an external MIDI device. If you have already set the type of MIDI sync output
signal to “MTC,” you need to set the frame rate. Use the frame rate of MTC received by the external MIDI
device (or sequence software).
• Initial setting:
[25] (25 frames)
• Setting range of frame rate:
[24], [25], [29df], [29nd], [30df], [30nd]
* You can set the value for each Program individually.
* The settings can be saved and loaded as part of the song data.
* The settings are maintained after you turn off the power to the recorder.

Setting an MTC offset value (“MTC Offset?” menu)
The “Setting an MTC offset value” menu enables you to specify an offset time value - the difference between
the time of MTC output from the recorder and the ABS 00m 00s 00f 00sf time. You need to specify this value
if you have selected “MTC” for the “Setting MIDI sync output signal” menu.
With the initial setting of 00h 59m 57s 00f 00sf, for example, MTC of 59m 57s 00f 00sf is output at the ABS
time 00m 00s 00f 00sf. You can also set an offset value from the 001bar 1beat 00clk value (bar/beat) on the
Tempo Map. Refer to the next section for information on MTC Offset mode.
• Initial setting:
[00h: 59m: 57s: 00f: 00sf]
• Setting range of offset time:
00h: 00m: 00s: 00f: 00sf - 23h: 59m: 59s: 29f: 99sf
* You can set the value for each Program individually.
* The settings can be saved and loaded as part of the song data.
* The settings are maintained after you turn off the power to the recorder.

For example, if you rotate the JOG dial on the seconds
digit up 59, turning the dial further will increase the
number on the digit of minute by one.
<Note>
4.Press the EXECUTE/YES key.
For example, if you set MTC Offset mode to [ABS] (see
the next section) and you wish to start the song from
MTC’s 01h 00m 00s 00f, you may wish to set a preroll
of three seconds with an MTC offset of 00h 59m 57s
00f.
The selected offset value is stored and the display returns
to the indication with the flashing [?] that appeared in
step 2.
Setting Offset mode (“Offset Mode ?” menu)
If you have selected [MTC] in the “Setting Offset mode” menu, you need to select MTC Offset mode.
This menu enables you to determine whether the specified MTC is output at ABS 00h 00m 00s 00f or at
001bar 1beat 00clk (bar/beat) of the Tempo Map.
<Notes>
* As an example, if you set MTC Offset mode to [ABS] and you wish to start the song from MTC’s 1h 00m 00s
00f, you may want to set a preroll of three seconds with MTC offset of 00h 59m 57s 00f.
If you select [BAR ] as the MTC Offset mode, a preroll of two measures is automatically set. Use 01h 00m 00s
00f; do not set a preroll value.
* If you set Offset mode to [BAR ] and use MTC to synchronize sequence software on the computer, the tempo
of the sequencer may sometimes slip gradually. This is because the tempo of the recorder and the tempo of
the software are slightly different even if both use the same tempo. Some sequence software can read the
tempo output from the recorder correctly. We recommend that you use the tempo of the recorder on the
sequence software. No such problems will occur if the sequence software synchronizes the recorder via MIDI
clock, instead of MTC.
• Initial setting:
[ABS]
• Offset mode option:
[ABS], or [Bar ]
* You can set the mode for each Program individually.
* The settings can be saved and loaded as part of the song data.
* The settings are maintained after you turn off the power to the recorder.
Setting MTC Offset mode
1.While the recorder is stopped, press the [SETUP]
key to enter SETUP mode.
3.Use the [JOG] dial to select the desired Offset
mode.
Rotating the [JOG] dial clockwise or counter-clockwise
will alternately show a flashing “ABS” and “Bar ”.
If you select “ABS”, the specified MTC offset time is output
at ABS 00h 00m 00s 00f.
If you select “Bar ”, the specified MTC offset time is
output at 001bar 1beat 00clk of the Tempo Map.
2.Turn the [JOG] dial to select “Offset Mode ?” (“?”
flashes.), then press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
The current offset mode appears on the display.

2.Turn the [JOG] dial to select “Slave Type ?” (“?”
flashes.), then press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
• The recorder re-chase window is fixed to ten frames.
That is, if an offset between the master device and
slave device exceeds ten frames, the recorder
interprets that as out of sync, and tries to chase and
lock to MTC sent from the master device. (This
operation is called “re-chasing.”) During the re-chase
operation, audio output is muted. If the slave
machine slips with MTC from the master device by
less than ten frames, the slave machine continues
running while recognizing the slippage.
The current Slave type appears on the display.
Pressing the [EXECUTE/YES] key turns off the flashing
“?” character, and the Slave type indicator flashes.

Setting BAR/BEAT resolution mode (“Resolution ?” menu)
The “Setting BAR/BEAT resolution mode” menu enables you to turn BAR/BEAT resolution mode on and off.
The initial setting is “Off.” When you turn this mode on, the CLK (clock) digits will be always round off to 00
and be stored in the memory key while the recorder is using the BAR/BEAT/CLK Time Base. That is, beat
resolution is used. Using this function allows you to automatically store a beat-resolution value of the CLIPBOARD
IN/OUT points and other points in real-time. (Press the STORE key, then the corresponding memory key while
playing the recorder.) Therefore, it is very convenient when you perform the Copy & Paste or Move & Paste
operation in beat-resolution.
For example, assume that you have stored the value for 001bar 1 46 clk as the CLIPBOARD IN
point, and the value for 002bar 4 51 clk as the CLIPBOARD OUT point.
These values will be used as they are if BAR/BEAT resolution mode is turned off. However, the
mode is turned on, the following values will be stored instead. The following example has a time
signature setting of 4/4.
001bar 1
46 clk -> 001bar 1
00 clk (A clk value of 46 will be rounded off.)
002bar 4
51 clk -> 003bar 1
00 clk (A clk value of 51 will be rounded up.)
• Initial setting:

• Options:
[On] or [Off]
* This setting is shared by all Programs in the same disk.

Checking the number of track events (“NOs Event ?” menu)
The “Checking the number of track events” menu enables you to check the number of events on each track.
Each track (including Additional tracks) of recorder Programs consists of consecutive audio files (and “zero”
files). The number of events represents the total number of audio files and 0 files. Each track can contain up
to 512 events.
If you are editing a song of typical length (about six minutes), repeated editing operation does not usually
cause this maximum number to be exceeded. (Exceeding this limit is called “event number overflow.”) Even a 20minute song will not cause event number overflow. This is because the recorder system always optimizes the
data structure by keeping the number of events low. However, if a recording on a track is scattered in
different areas of the disk, or if you have made a very long recording on a single track and performed many
edits, you should be wary of “event number overflow.” To avoid this problem, use the “Checking the number of
track events” menu to check the number of events on each track prior to recording or editing.

Model D2424 Reference Manual (Changing the Initial Settings <SETUP mode>)
Drive Setting (“Drive Sel?” menu)
In D2424, in addition to the current drive (E-IDE hard disk) for recording/playback/editing, by installing the
optional Model 9044 (BAY+CADDY), an E-IDE hard disk (or optional Model 9046 DVD-RAM drive), and
furthermore, a SCSI drive for backup use can be connected and used.
In the "Drive setup" menu, these drives can be selected in accordance to the use. This is especially convenient
to check the song data saved in the backup drive. Even though a multiple number of drives are used, the
D2424 will normally start up from the current drive by re-switching on the power.
<Note>
By switching the drive setting to "SCSI" or "IDE2," the saved song data can be confirmed by playing it back.
Since this playback is only to the extent of confirming the saved data, it could create drop outs if 24 channels
are played back, and in some SCSI equipment, channels that can be played back could be changed.
The following operations cannot be executed when the drive is switched to “backup drive.”
* Save/load of song data * Setup of rhythm
* Recording
* Creating a new program
* Deleting a program
* Copy & paste and Move & paste * Erase
* Track exchange
* Multiple undo * Setup of tempo
* ON/OFF of metronome function
* Setup of permission or denial of recording
If power to this recorder is switched again, the drive will automatically switch to current drive (E-IDE).
In order to take out the removable disk when set to backup drive, press the [EXIT/NO] key while holding down the
[SHIFT] key.
Setting of the drive
1.While the recorder is stopped, press the [SETUP]
key to enter SETUP mode.
4.Press the [EXECUTE/YES] key after choosing the
setting you want.
2.Turn the [JOG] dial to select “Drive Sel. ?” (“?”
flashes), and then press the [EXECUTE/YES] key.
To cancel the operation, or to restore the setting
obtained prior to the [EXECUTE/YES] key press, press
the [STOP] button or the [EXIT/NO] key. Each time
you press one of these keys, the recorder returns to
the previous hierarchy level of the menu, and finally
exits SETUP mode and displays the previous Time Base.
The current setting will start flashing which indicates it
is ready to change setting.
In the case of initial setting it will show “IDE1.”

Explanation on the Command/Mode Set
When this command is received, D2424 will erase the data
(writes in "0" data) in the section from the pre-registered auto
punch in point through auto punch out point in the track specified by <mmc track>. Since time corresponding to length of
the erase section is required to complete the erase operation,
D2424 will immediately reply by "32 47 (<edit message=02
(active)>)" after receiving the command.
After the completion of erase operation, "32 47 (<edit message=01 (completed)>)" will be transmitted.
If erase cannot be executed due to improper figures of the preregistered auto punch in point/auto punch out point, incorrect track section, etc., the corresponding <edit message> will
be replied.
12 22 (<on/off>): loop on/off command
The command for setting the "loop mode on/off" (=ON/OFF of
AUTO RTN) of D2424. Default figure of the loop operation
mode is "12=stop" and this cannot be changed.

The command for setting the "post locate mode" (=ON/OFF of
AUTO PLAY) of D2424. It will stop after locating if "post locate
mode=12." It will enter play after locating if "post locate
mode=15."
12 2D (<on/off>): auto rec command
The command for setting "auto rec mode on/off" (=ON/OFF of
AUTO PUNCH) of D2424. Upon receiving this command, D2424
will immediately reply the operating condition by sending "32
2D (<edit message>)".
12 49: clipboard play command
The command for setup of the slave mode (setup menu) when
this equipment is set to "slave mode on."
When this command is received, D2424 will playback once
from the head of the sound data copied in the clipboard by the
copy clip and move clip commands.
Immediately after receiving the command, D2424 will reply
with "32 49 (<edit message=02 (active)><count><mmc track>)."
The sound data track number is indicated by (mmc track>.
Upon completion of playback, "32 49 (<edit message=01 (completed) is sent and clipboard play is ended. If there is no sound
data in the clipboard, "32 49 (<edit message=14 (void data)>)"
will be sent and clipboard play operation will be interrupted.
12 45 (<count><mmc track>) : copy clip command
12 4A: undo command
When this command is received, D2424 will copy (multiple
number of tracks can be copied simultaneously) the sound
data, as data for copy paste, from the pre-registered clipboardin point to the clipboard-out point in the track specified by
<mmc track>.
With completion of copying the data into the clipboard, D2424
will immediately reply with "32 45 (<edit message=01 (completed)>)". If copy cannot be executed due to improper figures of the pre-registered clipboard in/clipboard out points or
incorrect track section, the corresponding <edit message> will
be returned.
Upon receiving this command, D2424 will revert to the condition prior to editing copy paste,erase, move paste, cut, redo
operation. With completion of undo operation, D2424 will
reply with "32 4A (<edit message=01(completed)>)."
If D2424 is not possible to undo, "32 4A (<edit message=00
(no message)>)" will be replied.
12 41 (<lock enable>): lock enable command
The command for setting "slave mode on/off" (setup menu) of
D2424.
12 42 (<lock mode>): lock mode command
12 4B: redo command
When this command is received, D2424 will return to the condition prior to undo operation.
With completion of redo operation, D2424 will reply with "32
4B (<edit message=01(completed)>)."
If D2424 is not possible to redo, "32 4B (<edit message=00 (no
message)>)" will be replied.
12 46 (<count=01><repeat count>): copy paste command
12 46 (<count><repeat count><mmc track>): copy paste command
12 4D (<count><mmc track>): move clip command
When this command is received, D824/D1624 will paste the
sound data which has been copied into the clipboard, on the
same track from the pre-registered auto punch in point as the
starting point for the number of time specified by <repeat
count>.
However, if the sound data length in the clipboard is less than
10ms, the specifying the <repeat count> will be limited to
"01." Also, by specifying <mmc track>, paste can be executed
on other tracks in mono (in one track units) or stereo units (in
combinations of tracks 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8.....).
Since time corresponding to length of the copy clipped sound
data is required to complete the copy paste operation, D2424
immediately replies with "32 46(<edit message=02 (active)>)"
after receiving the command.
Successively upon completing the paste operation, "32 46 (<edit
message=01(completed)>)" is transmitted.
If paste cannot be executed due to improper figures of the preregistered auto punch in point, insufficient disc capacity, no
sound data in the clipboard, etc., the corresponding <edit message> will be replied.
When this command is received, D2424 will copy (multiple
tracks can be copied simultaneously) the sound data from the
pre-registered clipboard in point to the clipboard out point, as
data for move paste operation. With completion copying the
data into the clipboard, D2424 will immediately reply with "32
4D (<edit message=01 (completed)>)." If copy cannot be executed by the reason of pre-registered improper clipboard in/
clipboard out point figures or incorrect track section, etc., the
corresponding <edit message> will be replied.
12 4E (<count=01><repeat count>): move paste command
12 4E (<count><repeat count><mmc track>): move paste command
When this command is received, D2424 will paste the sound
data which have been move clipped in the clipboard, for the
number of times specified by <repeat count> on the same track
from the pre-registered auto punch in point as the starting
point. At the same time, the move clipped original sound data
will be erased (data "0" is written in). However, when sound
138
Model D2424 Reference Manual (MIDI Implementation Chart/MMC List)
data length in the clipboard is less than 10ms, specifying the
<repeat count> will be limited to "01."
Also, by specifying the <mmc track>, paste operation can be
executed on other tracks in mono (one track unit) or stereo
units (tracks 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8....).
Since time corresponding to length of the move clipped sound
data is required to complete the move paste operation, D2424
will immediately reply with "32 4E (<edit message=02 (active)>)" after receiving the command.
Following completion of the move paste operation, "32 4E (<edit
message = 01 (completed)>)" will be sent.
If paste cannot be executed due to improper figures of the
previously registered auto punch in point, insufficient disc capacity, no sound data is in the clipboard, etc., the corresponding <edit message> will be replied.
13 42 (<channel><channel>): digital out ch.select command
12 4F (<channel><channel>): track exchange command
13 44 (<on/off>): click on/off command
When the D2424 receives this command, the track can be exchange between the specified <channel><channel>. Especially,
if the first <channel=00><channel=01>, then exchange by
grouping will be executed between channel 1-8 and channel
17-24, and if the next byte <channel=00><channel=02>,
then the exchange will be between channel 9-16 and channel
17-24. If it cannot be executed for some reason, an error message will be sent back.
The command for setting the metronome on/off of D2424.
When ON is set, the metronome signal will be fed to the track
24 output of D2424.
The source channel for digital out is selected.
Normally, the first <channel> shown will be the SPDIF L channel data, and the second <channel> the SPDIF R channel output. (<00><00>) is the default setting. By FDMS-3 V3.0, any

If it cannot be executed for some reason, an error message will
be sent back.
13 3F: delete current program command
When the D2424 receives this command, the current program
is deleted and succeeding programs moved up and renumberd.
If the deleted program is the only tune existing in the track, a
new program will be made automatically.
As this delete current program is executed in a comparatively
short time, "33 3F (<edit message=01 (completed)>)" will be
sent back immediately upon completing the execution.
If it cannot be executed for some reason, an error message will
be sent back.
13 41 (<channel><channel>): digital in ch.select command
The audio signal input from SPDIF digital in to assigned to the
destination track specified by <channel>. The first <channel>
shown in the command is the SPDIF L channel input, and the
