Re: Do you use the BEEP feature?

I wonder then how the Olympus recorders beep and it doesn't interfere at all
with the recordings? Granted they don't use firmware, but still, the
question remains, and I wish I knew how to get an answer. On the DS-2, the
beeps don't disturb anything. Granted it doesn't start recording the instant
you press record, but it does start within a quarter second (haven't timed
it, guessing). Same with pause/resume record and stop.
I'm not sure why it couldn't beep while the record monitor is on, but I
don't know anything about the coding that goes into Rockbox.
