- MP3 files.
-
- The quality setting is just a way of selecting an average bit rate,

- is lowered, recordings are compressed more (meaning worse sound quality),
- and the average bitrate changes as follows.

- \item[Frequency:]
- Choose the recording frequency (sample rate) -- 48kHz, 44.1kHz, 32kHz and
- 24kHz, 22.05kHz, 16kHz are available. Higher sample rates use up more disk
- space, but give better sound quality.
- This setting determines which frequency range can accurately be reproduced
- during playback, Lower frequencies produce smaller files.
- \opt{MASCODEC}{
- The frequency setting also determines which version of the MPEG standard
- the sound is recorded using:\\

-
- \item[Channels:]
- This allows you to select mono or stereo recording. Please note that
- for mono recording, only the left channel is recorded. Mono recordings
- are usually somewhat smaller than stereo.
-
- \item[Independent Frames:]
- The independent frames option tells the \dap\ to encode with the bit
- reservoir disabled, so the frames are independent of each other. This
- makes a file easier to edit.
-
- \item[Time Split:]
- This option is useful when timing recordings. If set to active it stops
- a recording at a given interval and then starts recording again with a
- new file, which is useful for long term recordings.
- \newline
- The splits are seamless (frame accurate), no audio is lost at the split
- point. The break between recordings is only the time required to stop
- and restart the recording, on the order of 2 -- 4 seconds.
- \newline
- Options (hours:minutes between splits): off, 24:00, 18:00, 12:00, 10:00,
- 8:00, 6:00, 4:00, 2:00, 1:20 (80 minute CD), 1:14 (74 minute CD), 1:00,
- 00:30, 00:15, 00:10, 00:05.
-
- \item[Prerecord Time:]
- This setting buffers a small amount of audio so that when the record button
- is pressed, the recording will begin from that number of seconds earlier.
- This is useful for ensuring that a recording begins before a cue that is
- being waited for.\\
- Options: Off, 1 -- 30 seconds
-
- \item[Directory:]
- Allows changing the location where the recorded files are saved. The
- default location is \fname{/recordings}.
-
- \item[Show recording screen on startup:]
- If set to yes, the \dap\ will start up with the while recording screen
- showing.\\
- Options: Yes, No\\

- Causes the backlight to flash on when clipping has been detected.\\
- Options: Off, Remote unit only, Main and remote unit, Main unit only.

+ \item[Prerecord Time:]
