+\subsection{\label{ref:while_recording_screen}While Recording Screen}
+\screenshot{main_menu/images/ss-while-recording-screen}{The while recording
+ screen}{}
+Entering the \setting{Recording} option in the \setting{Main Menu} brings up
+a screen in which you can choose to enter the \setting{Recording Screen} or
+the \setting{Recording Settings} (see below). The \setting{Recording Screen}
+shows the time elapsed and the size of the file being recorded. A peak meter
+is present to allow you set gain correctly. There is also a volume setting,
+this will only affect the output level of the \dap{} and does \emph{not}
+affect the recorded sound.
+\note{When you start a recording, the hard disk will spin up. This will cause
+the peak meters to freeze in the process. This is expected behaviour, and
+nothing to worry about. The recording continues during the spin up.}}
+\opt{MASCODEC}{The frequency, channels and quality}
+\opt{SWCODEC}{The frequency and channels} settings are shown on the last line.
