-Recorder sound settings Player sound settings
-\par}
-
-This menu offers a selection of sound properties you may change to
-improve your sound experience.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Volume}
-
-The sound volume your music is played at. Although settable range is
-0{}-100\%, many units don't produce audible output
-below 40\%. On Recorders, volume settings above 92\% will cause
-distortion (clipping) and are not recommended.
-
-\item \textbf{Bass}
-This emphasises or suppresses the lower
-(bass) sounds in the track. 0 means that bass sounds are unaltered
-(flat response).
-
-\item \textbf{Treble}
-This emphasises or suppresses the higher
-(treble) sounds in the track. 0 means that treble sounds are unaltered
-(flat response).
-
-\item \textbf{Balance}
-How much of the volume is generated by the left or right channel of the
-sound. The default, 0, means that the left and right outputs are equal
-in volume. Negative numbers increase the volume of the left channel
-relative to the right, positive numbers increase the volume of the
-right channel relative to the left.
-
-\item \textbf{Channels}
-
-This option controls the on{}-board mixing
-facilities of the Jukebox. A stereo audio signal consists of two
-channels, left and right. Available options are
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Mono Left: }Plays the left channel in both stereo channels.
-\item \textbf{Mono Right:} Plays the right channel in both stereo channels.
-\item \textbf{Mono:} Mix both channels down to mono and send the mixed signal
-back to both.
-\item \textbf{Stereo:} Do not mix the signal
-\item \textbf{Stereo Narrow: }Mixes small amounts of the opposite channel into
-the left and right channels, thus making the sound seem closer
-together.
-\item \textbf{Stereo Wide:} Elements of one channel that are present in the
-opposite channel are removed from the latter. This results in the
-sound seeming further apart.
-\item \textbf{Karaoke:} Removes all sound that is the same in both channels.
-Since most vocals are recorded in this way to make the artist sound
-central, this often (but not always) has the effect of removing the
-voice track from a song.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Loudness (Recorder only)}
-Loudness is an effect which emphasises bass and treble. This makes the
-track seem louder by amplifying the frequencies that the human ear
-finds hard to hear. Frequencies in the vocal range are unaffected,
-since the human ear picks these up very easily.
-
-\item \textbf{Auto Volume (Recorder only)}
-Auto volume is a feature that automatically lowers the volume on loud
-parts, and then slowly restores the volume to the previous level over a
-time interval. That time interval is configurable here. Short values
-like 20ms are useful for ensuring a constant volume for in car use and
-other applications where background noise makes a constant loudness
-desirable. A longer timeout means that the change in volume back to
-the previous level will be smoother, so there will be less sharp
-changes in volume level.
-
-\item \textbf{Super Bass (Recorder Only)}
-This setting changes the threshold at which bass frequencies are
-affected by the \textbf{Loudness} setting, making the sound of drums
-and bass guitar louder in comparison to the rest of the track. This
-setting only has an effect if \textbf{Loudness} is set to a value
-larger than 0dB.
-
-\item \textbf{MDB {}- Micronas Dynamic Bass (Recorder Only)}
-The rest of the parameters on this menu relate to the Micronas Dynamic
-Bass (MDB) function. This is designed to enable the user to hear bass
-notes that the headphones and/or speakers are not capable of
-reproducing. Every tone has a fundamental frequency (the ``main tone'') and also several harmonics, which are related to that tone. The human brain has a
-mechanism whereby it can actually infer the presence of bass notes from
-the higher harmonics that they would generate.\\
-
-The practical upshot of this is that MDB produces a more authentic
-sounding bass by tricking the brain in believing it's
-hearing tones that the headphones or speakers aren't
-capable of reproducing. Try it and see what you think.\\
-
-The MDB parameters are as follows.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{MDB enable: } This turns the MDB feature on or off. For many
-users this will be the only setting they need, since Rockbox picks
-sensible defaults for the other parameters. MDB is turned off by
-default.
-\item \textbf{MDB strength:} How loud the harmonics generated by the MDB will
-be.
-\item \textbf{MDB Harmonics}: The percentage of the low notes that is
-converted into harmonics. If low notes are causing speaker distortion,
-this can be set to 100\% to eliminate the fundamental completely and
-only produce harmonics in the signal. If set to 0\% this is the same
-as turning the MDB feature off.
-\item \textbf{MDB Centre Frequency: }The cutoff frequency of your headphones or speakers. This is usually given in the specification for the headphones/speakers.
-\item \textbf{MDB shape: }It is recommended that this parameter be set to 1.5
-times the centre frequency.\\
-
-This is the frequency up to which harmonics are generated. Some of the
-lower fundamentals near the cut{}-off range
-will have their lower harmonics cut off, since they will be below the
-range of the speakers. Fundamentals between the
-cut{}-off frequency and the lower frequency will have their harmonics proportionally boosted to compensate and restore the 'loudness' of these
-notes.\\
-
-For most users, the defaults should provide an improvement in sound
-quality and can be safely left as they are. For reference, the
-defaults Rockbox uses are:

-\subsubsection{\label{ref:PlaybackOptions}Playback Options}
-This menu is for configuring settings related to MP3 playback
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Shuffle}
-Select shuffle ON/OFF. This alters how Rockbox will select which next
-song to play.
-\item \textbf{Repeat}
-Repeat modes are Off/One/All. ``Off'' means no
-repeat. ``One'' means repeat one track over
-and over. ``All'' means repeat playlist/directory.
-\item \item{Play Selected First }
-This setting controls what happens when you press PLAY on a file in a
-directory and shuffle mode is on. If this setting is Yes, the file you
-selected will be played first. If this setting is No, a random file in
-the directory will be played first.
-\item \textbf{Resume}
-Sets whether Rockbox will resume playing at the point where you shut
-off. Options are: Ask/Yes/No/Ask once.
-``Ask'' means it will ask at boot time. ``Yes'' means it will unconditionally try to resume. ``No'' means it will not resume. ``Ask once'' will erase the resume info if you answer no, and thus not ask you again.
-\item \textbf{FFwd / Rewind}
-Two options are available at this point
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{FF/RW Min Step}
-The smallest step, in seconds, you want to fast forward or rewind in a
-track.
-\item \textbf{FF/RW Accel}
-How fast you want search (ffwd/rew) to accelerate when you hold
-down the button. ``Off'' means no acceleration. ``2x/1s'' means double the
-search speed once every second the button is held. ``2x/5s'' means double the search speed once every 5 seconds the button is held.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Anti{}-skip Buffer}
-This setting is really ``extra anti{}-skip''. It lets you set
-a timer for how many seconds earlier than normally necessary the disk
-should spin up and start reading data. You don't need
-this unless you shake and bump the unit a lot. Spinning up the disk
-earlier than necessary naturally drains the batteries a little extra.
-Most users will not need this setting.
-
-\item \textbf{Fade on Stop/Pause}
-This setting enables and disables a fade effect when you pause
-or stop playing a song. Fade is a progressive increase or reduction of
-volume, from your set volume to 0, and vice versa.
-
-\item \textbf{ID3 tag priority}
-ID3 tags in an MP3 file contain information about the artist, title,
-album etc. of the track. This option controls whether Rockbox uses the information from ID3v2 tags in preference to that from ID3v1 tags when both types of tag are present.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsection{File View}
-This menu deals with options relating to how the file browser displays
-files
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Sort Case Sensitive}
-If this option is enabled files that start with a
-lower case letter will appear after the files that start with an upper case letter have all been listed If disabled, then case will be ignored when sorting files.
-\item \textbf{Sort Directories}
-This option controls how Rockbox sorts folders. The default is to sort
-them alphabetically. ``By date'' sorts them with the oldest folder
-first. ``By newest date'' sorts them with the newest folder first.
-
-\item \textbf{Sort Files}
-This option controls how Rockbox sorts files. In addition to the
-options for directory sorting above, there is a ``By type'' option
-which sorts files alphabetically by their type (such as .mp3) then
-alphabetically within each type.
-
-\item \textbf{\label{ref:ShowFiles}Show Files}
-Controls which files are displayed in the directory browser:
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Music: }
-Only directories, .mp3, .mp2, .mpa and .m3u files
-are shown. Extensions are strippe'd. Files anddirectories starting with . Or with the ``hidden'' flag set are hidden.
-\item \textbf{Playlists:}
-Only shows directories and playlists, for
-simplified navigation.
-\item \textbf{Supported:}
-All directories and files Rockbox understands (see page \pageref{ref:Supportedfileformats}) are shown. Files and directories starting with . or with the
-``hidden'' flag set are hidden.
-\item \textbf{All:}
-All files and directories are shown. Extensions are shown. No files or
-directories arehidden
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Follow Playlist}
-If Follow Playlist is set to ``Yes'', you will find yourself in the same
-directory as the currently playing file if you go to the Directory
-Browser from the WPS. If set to ``No'', you will stay in the same directory as you were last in.
-
-\item \textbf{Show Icons}
-This indicates whether Rockbox will display an icon representing what
-type a file is on the left of the file in the browser. For details of
-these icons, please see page \pageref{ref:Supportedfileformats}.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsection{\label{ref:Displayoptions}Display Options}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Browse fonts}
-Browse the fonts that reside in your \textbf{/.rockbox} directory.
-Selecting one will activate it. See page \pageref{ref:Loadingfonts} for further details about fonts.
-
-\item \textbf{Browse WPS files}
-Opens the file browser in the \textbf{/.rockbox} directory and displays
-all .wps files. Selecting one will activate it, stop will exit back to
-the menu.\\
-
-For further information about the WPS see page \pageref{ref:WPS}. For
-information about editing a .wps file see page \pageref{ref:ConfiguringtheWPS}.
-
-\item \textbf{LCD Settings}
-
-%\begin{itemize}
-This submenu contains settings that relate to the display of the
-Jukebox.
-\item \textbf{Backlight:}
-How long the backlight shines after a key
-press. Set to OFF to never light it, set to ON to never shut it off or
-set a preferred timeout period.
-\item \textbf{Backlight on WhenPlugged:}
-This option turns the backlight on constantly while the charger cable is connected.
-\item \textbf{Caption Backlight:} This option turns the backlight on for
-25 seconds either side of the start of a new track so that the display
-can be read to see song information.
-\item \textbf{Contrast:} Changes the contrast of your LCD display.
-Warning: Setting the contrast too dark or too light can make it hard to
-find this menu option again!
-\item \textbf{LCD Mode} (Recorder only): This setting lets you invert
-the whole screen, so now you get a black background and green text
-graphics.
-\item \textbf{Upside Down: }Displays the screen so that the top of the
-display is nearest the buttons. This is sometimes useful when carrying
-the Recorder in a pocket for easy access to the headphone socket.
-\item \textbf{Line Selector: }Select this option to have a bar of
-inverted text (``Bar'' option) mark the current line in the File
-Browser rather than the default arrow to the left (``Pointer'' option).
- This gives slightly more room for filenames.
-%\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Scrolling}
-This feature controls how text will scroll in Rockbox. You can configure
-the following parameters:
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Scroll Speed:}
-Controls how many times per second the scrolling text moves a step.
-\item \textbf{Scroll StartDelay:}
-Controls how many milliseconds Rockbox should wait before a new text begins scrolling.
-\item \textbf{Scroll Step Size:}
-Controls how many pixels the text scroll should move for each step. (Recorder/Ondio only)
-\item \textbf{Bidirectional Scroll Limit: }
-Rockbox has two different scroll methods, always scrolling the text to the left, and when the line has ended, beginning again at the start, or moving to the
-left until you can read the end of the line, and scroll right until you
-see the beginning again. Rockbox chooses which method it should use,
-depending of how much it has to scroll left. This setting lets you tell
-Rockbox where that limit is, expressed in percentage of line length.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Status/Scrollbar (Recorder only)}
-Settings related to on screen status display and the scrollbar.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Scroll Bar: }Enables or disables the scroll bar at the
-left.
-\item \textbf{Status Bar: }Enables or disables the status bar
-at the upper side.
-\item \textbf{Button Bar:} Enables or disables the button bar prompts
-for the F keys at the bottom of the screen.
-\item \textbf{Volume Display:} Controls whether the volume is displayed
-as a graphic or a numerical percentage value on the Status Bar.
-\item \textbf{Battery Display: }Controls whether the battery charge
-status is displayed as a graphic or numerical percentage value on the
-Status Bar.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Peak Meter (Recorder only) }
-The peak meter can be configured with a number of parameters. (For a description of the peak meter see page \pageref{ref:Peakmeter}.)
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Peak Release:}
-This determines how fast the bar shrinks when the music becomes softer.
-Lower values make the peak meter look smoother.
-\item \textbf{Peak Hold Time:}
-Specifies the time after which the peak indicator will reset. If you set this value e.g. to 5s then the peak indicator displays the loudest volume value
-that occurred within the last 5 seconds. Big values are good if you
-want to find the peak level of a song, which might be of interest when
-copying music from the jukebox via the analogue output to some other
-recording device.
-\item \textbf{Clip Hold Time:}
-How long the clipping indicator will be visible after clipping was detected
-\item \textbf{Performance:}
-In high performance mode, the peak meter is updated as often as possible. This reduces the chance of missing a peak value, making the peak meter more precise. In energy save mode the peak meter is updated just often enough to look fluid.
-This reduces the load on the CPU and thus saves a little bit of energy. If you crave every second of runtime for your jukebox or simply use the peak meter as a screen effect, the use of energy save mode is recommended. If you want to use
-the peak meter as a measuring instrument you'll want to use high performance mode.
-\item \textbf{Scale:}
-Select whether the peak meter displays linear or logarithmic values. In
-``dB'' (decibel) scale the volume values are scaled logarithmically.
-This very similar to the perception of loudness. The volume meters of
-digital audio devices usually are scaled this way. If you are
-interested in the power level that is applied to your headphones you
-should choose ``linear'' display. Unfortunately this value
-doesn't have real units like volts or watts since that
-depends on the phones. So they can only be displayed as percentage
-values.
-\item \textbf{Minimum and maximum range:} These two options define the
-full value range that the peak meter displays. Recommended values for
-dbFs are {}-40 for min. and 0 for maximum. For linear display, use 0
-and 100\%. Note that {}-40 dbFs is approximately 1\% in linear value,
-but if you change the minimum setting in linear mode slightly and then change to dbFs there will be a large change. You can use these values for
-'zooming' into the peak meter.
-\end{itemize}
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsubsection{\label{ref:SystemOptions}System Options}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Battery}
-Options relating to the batteries in the Jukebox unit.
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Battery Capacity} can be used to tell the Jukebox what
-capacity (in mAh) of battery is being used inside it. The default is
-1500mAh for NiMH battery based units, and 2300mAh for LiOn battery
-based units, which is the capacity value for the standard batteries
-shipped with these units. This value is used for calculating remaining
-battery life.
-\item \textbf{Deep discharge (Non{}-FM recorder only)}
-Set this to ON if you intend to keep your charger connected for a long
-period of time. It lets the batteries go down to 10\% before starting
-to charge again. Setting this to OFF will cause the charging to restart
-on 95\%.
-\item \textbf{Trickle Charge (Non{}-FM recorder only)}
-The Jukebox cannot be turned off while the charger is connected.
-Therefore, trickle charge is needed to keep the batteries full after
-charging has completed. For more in depth information about charging
-see Battery FAQ in your \textbf{/.rockbox/docs }directory.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Disk}
-Options relating to the hard disk.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{DiskSpindown:}
-Rockbox has a timer that makes it spin down the hard disk after being idle for acertain time. You can modify this timeout here. This idle time is only
-affected by user activity, like navigating through file browser. When
-the hard disk spins up to fill mp3 buffer, it automatically spins down
-afterwards.
-\item \textbf{Disk Poweroff:}(non v2/FM{}-recorder only)
-Whether the disk is powered OFF or only set to ``sleep'' when spun
-down. Power off uses less power but takes longer to spin{}-up.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Time and Date (Recorder Only)}
-Time related menu options.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Set Time/Date: }
-Set current time and date.
-\item \textbf{Time Format: }
-Choose 12 or 24 Hour clock.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{\label{ref:idlepoweroff}Idle Poweroff}
-Rockbox can be configured to turn off power after the unit has been idle
-for a defined number of minutes. The unit is idle when playback is
-stopped or paused. It is not idle while the USB or charger is
-connected, or while recording.
-
-\item \textbf{Sleep Timer}
-This option lets you power off your jukebox after playing for a given
-time. This setting is reset on boot. Using this option disables the
-\textbf{Wake up alarm} (see below).
-
-\item \textbf{Wake up alarm (Recorder v2/FM only)}
-This option turns the Jukebox off and then starts it up again at the
-specified time. This is most useful when combined with the Resume
-setting in the Playback options set to ``Yes'', so that the Jukebox
-wakes up and immediately starts playing music. Use LEFT and RIGHT to
-adjust the minutes setting, UP and DOWN to adjust the HOURS. PLAY
-confirms the alarm and shuts your Jukebox down, and STOP cancels
-setting an alarm. If the Jukebox is turned on again before the alarm
-occurs the alarm will be canceled. Using this option disables the \textbf{Sleep Timer} (see above).
-
-\item \textbf{Limits}
-This submenu relates to limits in the Rockbox operating system.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Max files in dir browser: }Configurable limit of files in
-the directory browser (file buffer size). You can configure the size to
-be between 50 and 10000 files in steps of 50 files. The default is 400,
-higher values will shorten the music buffer.\\
-
-Note: the device must be rebooted for settings to take effect!
-\item \textbf{Max playlist size: }Option to configure the maximum size
-of a playlist. The playlist size can be between 1000 and 20000 files in
-steps of 1000. By default it is 10000. Higher values will shorten the
-music buffer.\\
-
-Note: the device must be rebooted for settings to take effect!
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Car Adapter Mode}
-This option turns on and off the car ignition auto stop
-function.
-
-When using the Jukebox in a car, car adapter mode automatically stops
-playback on the Jukebox when power (i.e. from cigarette lighter power
-adapter) to the external DC in jack is turned off.
-
-When the external power off condition is detected, the Car Adapter Mode
-function only pauses the playback. In order to shut down the Jukebox
-completely the \textbf{Idle Poweroff} function (see above) must also be
-set.
-
-If power to the DC in jack is turned back on before the \textbf{Idle
-Poweroff} function has shut the Jukebox off, playback will be resumed
-5 seconds after the power is applied. This delay is to allow for the
-time while the car engine is being started. Once the Jukebox is shut
-off either manually, or automatically with the \textbf{Idle Poweroff
-}function, it must be powered up manually to resume playback.
-
-\item \textbf{Line In (Player only)}
-This option activates the line in port on Jukebox Player, which
-is off by default.
-
-This is useful for such applications as:
-\begin{itemize}
-\item Game boy {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater} human
-\item laptop {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater}human
-\item LAN party computer {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater} human
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Manage settings}
-This submenu deals with loading and saving settings.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Browse .cfg Files: }
-This displays a list of configuration
-(.cfg) files stored in the \textbf{/.rockbox} system directory. This
-is useful if the Jukebox is plugged into more than one different output
-device (e.g. headphones, computer, car stereo, hi{}-fi) so that a settings file can be maintained for each.
-\item \textbf{Browse Firmwares:} This displays a list of firmware (.mod
-for Players and .ajz for Recorders) file in the \textbf{/.rockbox} system directory. Playing a firmware file loads it into memory. Thus it is possible to
-run the original Archos firmware or a different version of Rockbox from
-here assuming that you have the right files installed on your disk.
-\item \textbf{Reset Settings: }This wipes the saved settings in the
-Jukebox and resets all settings to their default values.
-\item \textbf{Write .cfg file: }Saves the current settings into a .cfg
-file for later use with \textbf{Browse .cfg Files} above.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsubsection{\label{ref:Bookmarkconfigactual}Bookmarking}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Bookmark on Stop}
-Write a bookmark to the disk whenever the stop key is pressed. If
-playback is stopped it can be resumed easily at a later time. The
-\textbf{Resume} function remembers your position in the most
-recently accessed track regardless of this setting.
-\item \textbf{Load Last Bookmark}
-When this is on, Rockbox automatically returns to the position of the
-last bookmark within a file when it is played. If set to Ask, Rockbox
-will ask the user whether they want to start from the beginning or the
-bookmark. When set to no, playback always starts from the beginning
-and the Bookmark file must be played or \textbf{Load Bookmark} selected
-from the \textbf{Bookmarks} submenu of the Main Menu while the file is
-playing.
-\item \textbf{Maintain a list of Recently Used Bookmarks}
-If this option is turned on, Rockbox will store a list of Bookmarks that
-have been accessed recently. This is then accessible from the
-\textbf{Recent Bookmarks} option of the \textbf{Bookmarks} submenu of
-the Main Menu.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\subsection{\label{ref:Language}Language}
-This setting controls the language of the Rockbox user interface.
-Selecting a language will activate it. The language files must be in
-the \textbf{/.rockbox/lang/} directory.
-
-See page \pageref{ref:Loadinglanguages} for further details about
-languages.
-
-\subsection{Voice}
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Voice Menus}
-This option turns on the Voice User Interface, which will read out menu items and settings as they are selected by the cursor. In order for this to work, a voice file must be present in the \textbf{/.rockbox/lang/} directory on the recorder. Voice files are large (1.5MB) and are not shipped with Rockbox by
-default.
-
-The voice file is the name of the language for which it is made,
-followed by the extension .voice. So for English, the file name would
-be \textbf{english.voice}.
-
-This option is on by default. It will do nothing unless the appropriate
-.voice file is installed in the correct place on the Jukebox.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{Limitations}
-\begin{itemize}
-\item Setting the Sound Option \textbf{Channels} to ``karaoke'' may
-disable voice menus.
-\item Plugins and the wake up alarm do not support voice features.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Voice Directories}
-This option turns on the speaking of directory names. The Jukebox is
-not powerful enough to produce these voices in real time, so a number of options are available.
-
-\begin{itemize}
-\item \textbf{.talk mp3 clip: }
-Use special pre{}-recorded MP3 files (\textbf{\_dirname.talk}) in each directory. These must be generated in advance, and are typically produced synthetically using a text to speech engine on a PC. If no such file exists, the output is as for the ``numbers'' option below.
-\item \textbf{Spell: }
-Speak the directory name by spelling it out letter
-by letter. Support is provided only for the most common letters and
-punctuation.
-\item \textbf{Numbers: }
-Each directory is assigned a number based upon its position in the file list. They are then announced as ``Directory 1'', ``Directory 2'' etc.
-\item \textbf{Off: }
-No attempt will be made to speak directory names.
-\end{itemize}
-
-\item \textbf{Voice Filenames}
-This option turns on the speaking of directory names. The options
