Subject: Re: BEEP TONE WHEN RECORDING

Re: BEEP TONE WHEN RECORDING

Well! here's an idea. Don't know, if the hardware will let us do the trick,
but I throw it on here anyway:

Forget about the beep tone!

Will the hardware let us adjust the output level, without affecting the
input level? In such a case: Could rockbox simply drop the output level to
0 - or close to that - for a short moment (0.5-1.0 sec, or so), when
recording is started; and still have the input souund unbroken?
