To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intented to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance servicing instruc- tions in the literature accompanying the appliance.
The lithium battery should only be replaced by qualified service personnel. Improper handling may cause risk of explosion. Power requirements for electrical equipment vary from area to area. Please ensure that your DR1 6pro meets the power requirements in your area.
If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician or AKAI professional dealer. Apart from voiding the warranty, unauthorized engineers might touch live internal parts and receive a serious electric shock. Never use a DC power supply. They may damage the surface, and may ignite. They will damage the finish. Never attempt to modify the equipment in any way.
Avoid setting up the DR16pro in the following locations: 1. In a humid or dusty environment 2. In a room with poor ventilation 3. On a surface which is not horizontal 4. Inside a vehicle such as a car, where it will be subject to vibration 5. The hard disk drive has extremely high precision and is vulnerable to shock and vibration. If transporting the DR16pro by either land or air, we recommend packing it in a shell-shaped case lined with urethane rubber which meets ATA specifications.
Make sure the DR1 6pro is used in the horizontal position. Do not set it on end or tilt it when using it. If the DR1 6pro is moved from a cold location to a warm one, or if the temperature has been raised suddenly, condensation may form inside the DR1 6pro.
If it is impossible to avoid con- ditions like these, let the DR1 6pro sit for at least an hour in the new location before using it. When setting up the DR1 6pro, make sure the ventilation opening is not blocked. Also, if using the DR1 6pro in a rack that contains other equipment, make sure sufficient ventilation space is assured on all sides approx.
To change the fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows: 1 Remove the fuse cover and old fuse. A or BSI approved type. If the AC mains plug fitted to the lead supplied with this equipment is not suitable for your type of AC outlet sockets, it should be changed to an AC mains lead, complete with moulded plug, to the appropriate type.
If this is not possible, the plug should be cut off and a correct one fitted to suit the AC outlet. This should be fused at 5 Amps. Before replacing the plug cover, make certain the cord grip is clamped over the outer sheath of the lead and not simply over the wires.

Please take the time to read this manual. It will allow you to get the best out of your DR1 6pro. What is the DR16pro? Take a conventional sixteen-track recorder, replace all the analog circuitry with the latest digital audio processing technology, replace the tape transport with a hard disk for near-instant digital audio data access, and add a 1 6-channel programmable digital mixer — the result is the DR1 6pro.
The DR16pro is a track digital hard disk recorder and editor, with a built-in digital mixer. It contains many of the features and functions you would normally expect, such as CD quality audio, non-destructive editing, etc. Macintosh is a registered trademark of Apple Computer Inc. All other trademarks, product and company names are the property of their respective owners.
The signal is then converted to digital. However, you can assign any input channel to any hard disk track. Then press the Play and REC keys to record. Unlike the inputs, these output channels are fixed to the corresponding hard disk tracks.
Using the BUS channels allows you to carry out a digital bounce-down recording ping-pong inside the DR16pro with very little deterioration in tonal quality. There are sixteen track level indicators that also indicate the send, bus routing, and stereo master levels.
The bargraphs are used to display channel pa- rameter settings when the DR16pro is in Mix Mode. You should adjust the levels so this never occurs. Normally, the level meter shows the level of each track. See "Digital Inputs" on page See "Track Number Limitations" on page When you are using the Mix Mode, these keys select the channel you want to edit. Also see "Selecting Mix Mode" on page A flashing key indicates that a track is armed for recording, and a lit key indicates recording in progress.
Absolute time starts at zero, cannot be changed, and works as the base time for relative time. When synchronizing using SMPTE timecode, the relative mode can be used to set synchronization offsets.
The top row of nine 7-segment digits display time, either absolute or relative. It may also be switched to show bars, beats, and clocks. The bottom row of segment digits display status, sub-menu, and error messages.
Also in this display, the current mode is displayed. The "BUSY" indicator at the bottom of the display shows hard disk activity.
Beside it, a row of small dots show activity for each of the 16 tracks and indicate that data exists on the track at the current position. This is useful if you make a mistake while recording and want to return to the previous recording. Likewise, when editing you can compare the material before and after an edit. See "Recording Undo" on page 44 and "Undo- ing an Edit" on page Playback speed is determined by how fast you turn the wheel. Turn it counterclockwise to review and clockwise to preview.
The effect is similar to reel-rocking on an analog tape recorder — you can use it to identify edit points precisely. Turn it counterclockwise to decrease values and clockwise to increase them. The playback speed is determined by the angle at which you hold the control. See "Cursor" on page You can perform a variety of operations on the hard disk with the 1 DISK sub-menu func- tions. Set the sampling frequency and other related functions with the 2 DIGI sub-menu functions.
