What functions can I use?
Start to record automatically when the noise reaches a set level. Use a chromatic tuner and metronome in the four-track mode to help you hit all the right notes at the right time. Automatically add mark in a track at preset conditions, optimise the level, set track increments, save power in battery mode and divide the files at the marks.
What can I record?
Get great sound with two built-in microphones in an X/Y arrangement crossing each other at 90 degrees for good all-around coverage or use two mono XLR microphones and get audio from two different sources. Don’t miss anything with the low cut filler to reduce noise and a pre-recording filter that buffers up to two seconds before you press play. Open up your option with a +48V phantom power supply for condenser microphones, decoding function for M-S microphones or use a line level or mic input with the XLR and input jack.
