Subject: RE: problem recording with V1
From: rinty (rinty_at_freeuk.com)
Date: 2004-06-22


Could I make a suggestion for a future build here, would it be
possible for the rockbox to say something when the play/pause key is
pressed for the first time, then maybe "recording" when you've
actually started recording.

If I understand your scenario, yes. You select the "start recording"
menu item by hitting the play/pause button. This gets you into the
recording page, but recording has not started. You will hear the
audio in your headphones at this point. The idea, I presume, is to
set the recording level and make whatever last minute changes you need
(e.g. change the sample rate or compression rate). It also allows you
to queue up the audio source if you are in control of it, or have
everything primed and ready to go when your audio source starts if you
aren't in control. Once you are ready and your audio source starts,
press play/pause again to start recording.
