The standard speed of the micro cassette recorder is 2.4 cm/sec. If you record a tape with the TAPE SPEED switch set to 1.2 and play it back on another micro cassette recorder, playback sound may not be correct.
Recording from an external microphone â K
To record sound with more clarity, use an optional external microphone. The plug-in-and-power up type microphones can be used for this unit. Connect the microphone to the EXT MIC jack and set the microphone near the sound source.
When recording from an optional external microphone, move the microphone away from the main unit or the earphone to prevent howling.
To record only above a preset sound level â L
Recording will start when the unit detects sound above a certain preset level. If the unit does not detect the sound for about 4 seconds, recording will pause. This prevents tape waste and empty recording. 1 Set the V-SENSORâ switch to ON. 2 Adjust the sensor level. Turn the VOL (V-SENSOR LEVEL) control in the direction of a to lower the sensor level.

Even relatively quiet sounds will be recorded. 3 Press the w button to start recording. â Voice Sensor Recording
Sensor level adjustment
The ideal sensor level varies according to the loudness of the source sound. Experiment with the sensor level in advance to determine the optimum level before you start an important recording. Normally, align the white mark c of the VOL (VSENSOR LEVEL) control with the part d first, then adjust it according to surrounding conditions.
When the recording resumes after sound detection, the very first sounds may not be recorded.
To record the human voice more clearly â M
When the voice you want to record is soft, and the surroundings are noisy, set the NFR switch to ON and start recording. The voice will be recorded more clearly.
