Can the DCD-12 generate several WC frequencies simultaneously?
Unlike the DCD-8, the DCD-12 is a single domain generator. However, it does have a divider/multiplier on outputs 9-12 so that two multiple frequencies can be generated simultaneously such as 48KHz and 96KHz for example or 176.40KHz and 44.1KHz.
How can I see the frequency of the reference or the input frequency?
While holding down the VIEW button, the 6 digit display shows the frequency of the reference or input frequency. When you release it, it returns to displaying the output frequency.
What does it mean when the GEARBOXING LED lights up?
The term Gearboxing is used when mixed rates are synchronized together. The DCD-12 has the ability to generate a frequency different than that of the reference. For example, with a 44.1KHz reference the DCD-12 can generate 96KHz. That is when GEARBOXING lights up.
