BR-1600CD

Digital Recording Studio

Q.On the BR-1600CD, I'd like to use the metronome while recording. However, I'd like to hear only the song playback (with no metronome) from the line outputs, and only the metronome sound from the headphone outputs. Is this possible?

A.The BR-16000CD features two headphone outputs: PHONES 1 and PHONES 2. PHONES 1 always outputs the same signal as that sent to the LINE OUT jacks. However, PHONES 2 can be set independently.

Use the following procedure to turn the metronome on, set LINE OUT/PHONES 1 to output only the song playback, and set PHONES 2 to output only the metronome sound.

  1. Press [TRACK TYPE SELECT].
  2. Press [F4], and then select "METRONOME."
  3. Repeatedly press Track button [15/16] until it lights or flashes.
    (When Track [15/16] lights solid, the metronome will sound continuously. When it flashes green, the metronome will sound when the BR-1600CD is playing. When it flashes red, the metronome sounds only during recording.)
  4. Press [UTILITY].
  5. Select the "SYSTEM" icon and then press [ENTER/YES].
  6. In the "METRONOME" area, move the cursor to "LINE/Phones1" and use the TIME/VALUE dial to choose "OFF."
  7. In the "METRONOME" area, move the cursor to "Phones2" and use the TIME/VALUE dial to choose "METRONOME ONLY."
Note:
If you want to hear both the song playback and the metronome sound from PHONES2, choose "ON" in Step 7.
