\item[Start Above.]
- The start threshold defines the minimal volume a sound must have to start the
- recording. It is displayed numerically in the line "Start Above". Note that
- the unit of the threshold depends on the settings of the peak meter. (i.e.
- When the peak meter displays db you can adjust the level in db and when the
- peak meter is set to linear the threshold is displayed as percentage.) In the
- peak meter at the bottom of the screen the start threshold is displayed
- graphically by a little triangle pointing to the right. There are two special
- values. The value \setting{Off} turns the start condition off. With this
- setting you have to start the recording manually and the trigger only stops
- the recording according to the stop condition. The setting \setting{-inf}
- sets the trigger to the absolute minimum. This setting only makes sense when
- you record via a digital input as even the noise of the device itself would
- exceed this threshold immediately.

\item[for at least.]
- The start duration defines the minimal duration that a signal must exceed the
- start threshold to start the recording. Depending on your situation you may
- want to set this setting to 0 (e.g. when copying a song from a commercial
- medium) or to quite big values. Because sound is not continuous by nature
- (think of percussion) neglectable dropouts are tolerated during this start

\item[Stop Below.]
- When the sound level drops below the stop threshold the recording is stopped.
- It is displayed numerically in the line "Stop Below". Just like the start
- threshold the unit of the stop threshold depends on the settings of the peak
- meter. There's also a small triangular marker in the peak meter at the bottom
- of the screen. In contrast to the start threshold marker it points to the
- left. The value \setting{Off} turns the stop condition off. With this setting you
- have to stop the recording manually.

\item[Presplit Gap.]
When the signal drops below the stop threshold for the time specified by the
- presplit gap a new recording may be started when the signal raises above the
- start threshold. Thus the value of the presplit gap should be smaller than
- the stop hold time. Otherwise the recording would stop anyway and the
- presplit gap has no effect. For most uses I recommend to set this parameter
- equal to the stop hold time. Sometimes you may encounter a sound source (e.g.
- a CD) where the songs have fade outs and hardly any gaps between the tracks.
- Here you can set the stop hold time to long values to ensure that all fade
- outs are recorded completely. By specifying a short presplit gap you still
- can split the recording into seperate tracks whenever the trigger start
- condition is met.
