Quick Guide
Recording
Before recording
The recorder enables you to record audio at a superior level of quality by setting the Recording
mode, ALC (Auto Level Control) function, microphone sensitivity, Hi Pass (Low Cut) Filter and
other functions. This section explains how to attach the wind screen, Recording mode and the
ALC (Auto Level Control) function. Please refer to the Reference Manual (PDF file) for information on the other functions.
■ Attaching the wind screen
The recorder features a highly sensitive internal stereo
microphone, which can pick up faint noises, such as the
wind, or a gentle breeze from an air cooling device, or even
a breath that hits the microphone directly. Yamaha recommends that you cover the microphone openings with the
windscreen to reduce such noise in a recording environment. In addition, Yamaha recommends that you turn on
the High Pass Filter via menu item [HPF] (see page 17, PDF
reference manual) to further reduce the noise.
■ About Recording mode
The recorder records audio in the MP3 or PCM (WAV) format. As a rule of thumb, select “PCM
44.1kHz/16 bit” (better sound quality) for the Recording mode to record a musical performance. Select “MP3 128kbps” (smaller data size) to record musical practice sessions or conference meetings. If you want to record audio at a much higher level of sound quality, select
“PCM 96kHz.”
Hint:
· In PCM mode, non-compressed audio data will be recorded. In MP3 mode, compressed audio data will
be recorded. If you choose an option that offers better sound quality, the data size will be larger and the
remaining available recording time will be shorter. Select a Recording mode that will suit your purposes,
based on your priorities (better sound quality or longer recording time) (see page 20).
· If you plan to create an audio CD from the recordings, select “PCM 44.1kHz/16 bit”.

■ Managing the Recycle Bin
Deleting a selected file
If you delete a file on the recorder while the
Recycle Bin function is active, the file will be
moved to the Recycle Bin ( ) folder temporarily so that you can restore it later if necessary. In this way, you do not have to worry
about deleting a file accidentally.
1. While the main screen is displayed,
When you purchase the recorder, the Recycle
Bin function is already activated.
• The Recycle Bin folder can accommodate
up to 199 files. If the Recycle Bin folder is
full, you cannot delete any more files. In
this event, move some files from the Recycle Bin folder to the original folder (see
PDF reference manual), or empty the Recycle Bin folder.
• When the Recycle Bin is full, you must
empty it to increase the remaining
recording time. Otherwise, you may be
unable to record. Empty the Recycle Bin
regularly (see PDF reference manual).
• You cannot move files from the M folder
to the Recycle Bin folder, regardless of
whether the Recycle Bin function is on
or off. These files will be deleted completely by the delete operation.
