Dubbing

This section describes how to make a copy of a disc in TRAY I to an
audio CD-R or CD-RW in TRAY II.

easy to copy audio discs.

1. Press POWER to turn the unit ON.
2. Place the disc to be dubbed in TRAY I, and put a recordable
audio CD-R/RW disc in TRAY II.
3. Close both trays.
• When the blank disc is inserted and TRAY II is closed, the
display will show a BLANK message.
4. Press and hold in the AUTO DUB button for about three seconds.
• The unit will dub the CD at 4X speed, then will automatically
finalize your newly recorded disc.

• If for some reason you wish to cancel the finalize process, press
STOP [
I
].
• When the operation is finished, COMPLETE will appear briefly on the
display, then the display will return to its track/time display mode.
NOTE: If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals when you're attempting
dubbing, SCMS appears on the display, then the unit automatically dubs
the disc in analog mode at 1X speed. The disc will be automatically
finalized.
If the CD-R/RW disc in TRAY II doesn't have enough space to dub the entire
disc in TRAY I, NOSPACE:D2 and DUBB 1/2/4X will alternately appear on
the display. Even if this happens, you can still dub most of the disc.
To dub as much of the disc as possible, press the ENTER button
when DUBB 1/2/4X is displayed.
When the disc nears the end of its available recording space,
the unit will do a fade-out over a few seconds.
When the fade-out has finished, the unit will finalize the disc
and automatically stop.
Pressing STOP [
I
] will stop the dubbing process.
When dubbing is stopped by pressing STOP [
the disc will not be finalized.
During dubbing, only the STOP [
will work.
Track numbers are incremented automatically. During dubbing,
you cannot add track numbers manually.
Note that the unit is more tolerant of disc errors at slower
dubbing speeds. If you're using low quality audio CD-R or CD-RW
discs (or if your source disc is scuffed), and you're experiencing
problems, record at 1X.
If you intend to monitor the sound during high speed dubbing,
turn the volume of your amplifier down low to prevent possible
damage to your system.
• During high speed (2X or 4X) dubbing, SYNC ALL is selected
automatically. You cannot select SYNC 1. During 1X speed
dubbing, SYNC ALL is selected automatically. If you want to select
SYNC 1, see the ADVANCED RECORDING section of the manual.
TRACK-BY-TRACK DUBBING
Instead of dubbing the entire source disc at once, this mode lets you
dub one track at a time. This can be handy for making mixed CDs
from several different source CDs.
