Adjusting Recording Levels
Setting the digital recording level
The digital recording level is set by default to 0 dB, the
level of the input source. Normally, it is not necessary to
adjust this level. However, because of the variance in
levels between different digital formats and sources, it is
possible to adjust the recording level of the digital
signal. The digital level can be adjusted up to +12 dB
and down to a minimum (MIN) level. Adjust
so that the highest peak causes the 0 dB
level indicators to flicker. Do not cause the OVER
indicator to light. Once recording is stopped, the digital
recording level returns to the default level of 0 dB.
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.

(MANUAL indicator is not lit) or manual
(MANUAL indicator lit) marking.
When recording analog signals
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.
One track number is written automatically
when you start recording, but none are written during
recording. To mark a track number, press
the desired position while recording.
When using manual marking, the marks must be set at least 4
When recording digital signals

original source (CD, etc.) with either automatic or manual
