When making a recording, you can choose either
automatic or manual marking. This feature operates
somewhat differently for analog and digital signals. See
below for details.
Press M-MARK on the remote repeatedly to select
automatic (MANUAL indicator out) or manual
(MANUAL indicator lit) marking.
When recording analog signals
Auto : Track numbers are written in synchronization with
the input level of the signal being recorded. During
recording, if no sound is detected for more than 1.5
seconds, the recorder interprets this to be a gap between
two tracks. When the source signal is detected again, a
track number is automatically written.
Manual : One track number is written automatically when
you start recording, but none are written during recording.
To mark a track number, press M-MARK at the desired
position while recording.
When using manual marking, the marks must be set at least 4
When recording digital signals
Track numbers are written in the same positions as the original
source (CD, etc.) with either automatic or manual marking.
To add additional track numbers, set M-MARK to MANUAL
and press M-MARK at the desired position while recording.
• When recording is paused, the portion recorded up to the
pause is counted as an individual track. When recording is
resumed, a new track number is created. On the other hand, if
one track is recorded in continuous repetition, that track is
recorded as one continuous track with a single track number.
• During synchronized recording, manual track marking is not
TIME RESCUE RECORDING
The Time Rescue (TIME) recording function allows you to
start recording six seconds before you press record.
During record pause mode, the MD recorder monitors the
input signal and continuously maintains a six second
memory "cache". Therefore, you can record a song that
just started without cutting off the beginning. You may find
this function useful when recording live broadcasts, or
when you want to start recording from the beginning of a
song without recording lots of commercials (etc.).
