About projects and libraries

As mentioned earlier, the DM-4800 uses projects to

store settings.

Projects contain system information, automation and

routing information associated with a project, making

it easy to return to a previous state when a project

has to be conducted over more than one session.

When a new project is created, any of the following

data from a previous project may also be associated

Each library in each project also has

access to the appropriate preset bank

(RAM). There are two preset banks for

the effects.

Within each project there are five libraries and automation

data, each divided into four banks, containing

the settings for the storable parameters mentioned

above.

Each of these banks contains 128 “slots” to hold settings

(numbered from 000 to 127).

In addition, the preset bank, stored in the DM-4800’s

memory, is available for recall of presets to be used

as starting points for user settings. The effect library

has access to two preset banks.

Individual slots and banks may be copied between

projects after the project has been created.

Projects are stored on easily-transportable standard

Compact Flash cards, allowing projects to be tracked

in a project studio, and mixed and produced in a

larger facility, for example.

Projects are date-stamped automatically (the DM-

4800 contains a battery-backed clock) which helps

you keep your work organized.
