Effective ways to use speaker modeling
Speaker modeling can be used effectively when you wish to audition
how your final production (an original audio CD, or a mixed-down
MD or DAT etc.) will sound on a variety of speakers. Here we will
explain how speaker modeling can be used when producing an
audio CD to audition the final result. Read this section in conjunction
with the DS-90 owner’s manual.

Added EZ routing (Mastering)
To EZ Routing (template/step edit), “Mastering” for mixdown is
newly added. With this routing, you can adjust the balance of each
track (up to six) and send them to the effect bus, then record the
returned signals from the effects to the other two tracks (mastering).
This is convenient, for example, for mixing the tracks 1 – 6,
processing them with Mastering Tool Kit effect, then recording the
result to tracks 7 and 8.

For example, if you have assigned track numbers to a medley of
songs, Disc At Once would be the appropriate choice. This is because
Track At Once would add approximately two seconds of silence,
which would cause the playback to sound fragmented.
With some CD-R discs, the data may not be written correctly if you select
“x2.” In this case, select “x1.” However, if a CD-RW disc is inserted into
the CD-RW drive , it will not be possible to select “x1” (the song will be
written at double speed).
If you use the CD-RW disc, you cannot choose “Track at Once” upon
writing.
Audio data written to a CD-RW disc cannot be played back on a
conventional CD player. In such cases, you can listen to the data
using the VS-880EX’s CD Player function.

Saving a song to a CD-RW disc
(CD-R Backup)
Checking whether the song was saved
correctly (+Verify)
After backing up a song to a CD-RW disc, you can now check
whether or not the data was saved correctly (i.e., check the recorded
state of the data).
If as a result of the +Verify operation, you are warned that the song
data has not been saved correctly, you should back up to a different
disc.
When backing up to a CD-R, we recommend that you use +Verify to
check whether the backup was performed correctly. However,
+Verify checks the entire surface of the disc, so it takes a
considerable amount of time.
Specifying the speed of saving (Speed)
When backing up a song on a CD-RW disc, you can now specify the
speed at which the data will be written.

backup all songs from the current drive, select “All.”
Restoring songs from a CD-RW
disc (CD-R Recover)
Specifying the speed of recovery (Speed)
Now you can specify the speed at which the data will be read when
recovering a song from a CD-RW disc.
Recovery procedure
1.
Select the disk (internal IDE hard disk) containing the song you
want to load as the current drive.
2.
Place the CD-R disc to which the song data has been backed up
in the CD-R/-RW drive.
3.
Press [SONG] several times until “CD-R Recover ?” appears in
the display.
4.
Press [YES]. “STORE Current?” (Store the current song?)

+Verify
If this is turned “On,” verification will be performed after the song
data has been backed up, to check whether or not the data was saved
correctly.
“CDR Rcv=” appears in the display. Use the TIME/VALUE dial
to select the song (only one song or all songs on the CD-RW
disc) that you wish to load, and press PARAMETER [
]. To
recover all songs from the current drive, select “All.”

CD Speed
Select the speed at which the song data will be backed up to the CDRW disc
x2: Backup at double speed.
x1: Backup at normal speed. This will increase the reliability.
Depending on the disc, it may not be possible to back up reliably to a CD-R
disc with a setting of “x2.” In such cases, select “x1.” Also, if you insert a
CD-RW disc into a CD-RW drive, it will not be possible to select “x1”
(backup will occur at double speed).
9.
Press [YES].
10. If the song holds a large amount of data, and cannot be
contained on a single CD-RW disc, the disc is ejected, and the
message “Insert Disc #” (# indicates the number in the order of
insertion) appears in the display to check the total amount of
necessary discs. Insert the next CD-RW disc and press [YES]. At
this time, we recommend that you write the disc numbers on the
labels so that you can keep track of the order in which the discs
were inserted into the drive.
11. When copying over multiple CD-RW discs, “Insert Disc #” (#
indicates the number in the order of insertion) appears in the
display. Insert each of the discs once more in the proper order
and press [YES].
12. When the CD-R backup procedure is finished, return to Play
condition.

CD Speed
Select the speed at which the song data will be recovered from disc.
x6:
Recover at 6x speed.
x2:
Recover at double speed.
x1:
Recover at normal speed. This will allow greater reliability.
Depending on the disc, it may not be possible to recover reliably from some
CD-R discs at speeds of “x6” or “x2.” In this case, select “x1.” Even if the
“CD Speed” is set to “x2” or “x6” the time it takes for recovery is not
always 1/2 or 1/6 of the base. This is because writing to the internal hard
disk can take a lot of time, or disc read errors can sometimes occur.
8.
Press [YES].
9.
If you selected “All” in step 6, the display will indicate “INIT
***:* OK ?” (OK to initialize the disk drive?). “***:*” is the ID
number and partition number of the recover destination disk
drive. For example when recovering to partition 0 of the internal
hard disk drive, the display would indicate “IDE:0.”
10. If you wish to initialize the current drive and then recover, press
[YES]. If at this point you press [YES], all songs saved on the
internal hard disk will be lost. If you decide not to initialize,
press [NO]. Normally you should press [NO].
11. Execute the load. When over multiple discs, the disc is ejected,
“Insert Disc #” (# indicates the number in the order of insertion)
appears in the display. Insert the next disc and press [YES].
12. When the CD-R recover procedure is finished, return to Play
condition.
