\section{\label{ref:Recording}Recording}
\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 \reference{ref:Recordingsettings}). 
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. If enabled in the peak meter settings, a counter in
front of the peak meters shows the number of times the clip indicator was
activated during recording. The counter is reset to zero when starting a new
recording.
\opt{swcodec}{
\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.

The controls for this screen are:
\begin{table}
