TD-1K: Using the MIX IN Input

The TD-1 has a "MIX IN" input on the side panel which lets you connect an external audio player. This is convenient for when you want to play the TD-1 while listening to music at the same time.

To do this, all you need is the correct cable to connect your audio device to the TD-1. 

 

- If your audio player has an 1/8"(3.5mm) output connection, then you'll need a 1/8" "stereo" cable. This type of cable can be used to connect to your cell phone (iPhone etc.),  or even for the Line output on your computer. One like this;

-If your audio player has 1/4" connection for its output, you'll need a 1/4" -1/8" stereo cable. One like this;

Other cables are available as well, including RCA - 1/8" stereo;

Once you have chosen the correct cable, simply connect the appropriate end to your audio device, and the opposite (1/8") end to the MIX IN jack on the left side panel of TD-1. (Be sure to not to connect to the phones output).  Then, turn up the volume and press play on your audio player. Make sure you have headphones connected to your TD-1 and its volume is up as well. If you have the Main outs on the TD-1 connected to an external mixer or amp, make sure the mixer / amp's volume is up.

Note of caution: Never connect the "powered" speaker output from an external mixer or source to the MIX IN jack on the TD-1. Doing so can damage the TD-1.
