Recording the moment before
pushing RECORD (PRE REC)
By using prerecording, you can record up to two seconds of the
signal input when the unit is in recording standby before the
record button is pushed (PRE REC).
1. Select the
PRE REC
item on the
REC SETTING
screen.
(See “Opening the REC SETTING screen” on page 19.)
2. Turn the pre-recording function on or off.

TIP
By using this in combination with the AUTO REC function,
you can record events without losing the beginnings of
sounds.
NOTE
If the amount of time in record standby is less than two
seconds, the sound for that amount of time is recorded.
Creating a new file while continuing
to record (file splitting)
You can manually split a recording. This function creates a new
file and continues recording. You can also set the unit to split
recordings automatically at set times (file splitting functions).
NOTE
When new files are created, incremental numbers are added
to the end of each file name.
If the name of a file to be created would be the same as that
of an existing file, the number will be incremented until the
new file has a unique name.
