CD-R/RW MASTER RECORDER CR500 (Recording)
• Feed an analog audio source and adjust the input levels appropriately using the
[INPUT LEVEL] control (when feeding a digital audio source, you can only view
the levels but cannot control it).
When the analog audio signals are fed, turning the [INPUT LEVEL] control
clockwise raises the input level. Adjust the levels appropriately by checking the
meter indication and monitoring via headphones.
* When the "Select Input" menu item is set to "Digital", you do not need to adjust the
You should set the input levels appropriately so that the indicators
near to "0"dB sometimes light but the "OL" indicators do not light.
The reference level is set to "-12dBFS" by default. On the level meter scale, "12"
(the -12dB point from the 24-bit full-scale level) is shown in red as the refer-
ence marker. You can change to set this level to "-20dB" via the "Ref.level" item
in the "SYS SETUP" menu of the MENU mode (see page 78 for details).
By default, the file name shown on the input monitor screen for a BWF
formatted disc is "<Scene Name> + <Take Number>" (with ".wav", the file ex-
tension). Using the "Default File Name" menu item of the "SYS SETUP" menu in
the MENU mode, you can select the file name mode from among "<Scene Name>
+ <Take Number>" (default), "<Reel Number> + <Take Number>" and "<Date>"
(see page 75). You can also edit the file name using the "Edit File Name" menu
item of the "SYS SETUP" menu in the MENU mode (see page 89).
When the "Select Input" menu item is set to "Digital", the input moni-
tor screens for a BWF formatted disc and a CD-DA formatted disc look like the
examples below (" " is shown).
While the "Select Input" menu item is set to "Digital", if the unit receives a
correct digital input signal and locks to it, "DIGITAL" of " " is lit.
Just below the "DISC-R" field, the channel status information of the digital
signal currently received is shown. If the unit does not receive a correct digital
input signal or does not lock to the digital input signal, "DIGITAL" flashes and
the input audio signal is muted. In such a case, check the digital output setting
of the source device and connection between the source device and the [DIGI-
TAL INPUT] connector of the CR500.
Normally, no file name is indicated on the input monitor screen for a
CD-DA formatted disc. However, if any file name is written by CD-TEXT, it is
indicated. Note that you cannot edit the file name of an audio track on the CD-
DA formatted disc.
