Recording onto a tape from any of the soun d sources is simple. Just
place a tape in the Cassette Deck, have the source ready, make one
or two settings, and you’re ready to record. For each source the pro-
cedure is a little bit different so we explain each separately. But first,
here are a few things to make your recordings better.

Things To Know Before You Start

Recording —————————————

It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record
pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without the con-
sent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video
recording, broadcast or cable programme and in any
literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied
therein.
When you want to record onto both sides of a tape, you can set
Reverse mode to do so. Recording automatically stops after re-
cording in the 2 direction. Therefore, make sure that the tape di-
rection is 3 when recording with Reverse mode on.
The recording level, which is the volume at which the new tape
is being made, is automatically set correctly, so it is n ot affected
by the VOLUME control on the System. Nor is it affected by
adjusting the sound effects. Thus, during recording you can ad-
just the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the
recording level.
Two small tabs on the back of the cassette tape, one for side A
and one for side B, can be removed to prevent accidental erasure
or recording.
To record on a cassette with the tabs removed, you must cover
the holes with adhesive tape first. However, when a type II tape
is used, only cover part of the hole as shown, since the other part
of the hole (Type II detection slot) is used to detect the tape
type.
Type I and Type II tapes can be used for recording.
Note: At the start and end of cassette tapes, there is leader tape
which cannot be recorded onto. Thus, when recording CDs or radio
broadcasts, wind on the leader tape first to ensure getting the begin-
ning of the recording.
CAUTION: If a recording you make has excessive
noise or static, the Unit may have been too close
to a TV which was on during the recording. Either
turn off the TV or increase the distance between
the TV and the System.
You can record any sound source to tape as follows:
1. Insert a blank or erasable tape into the
Cassette Deck and wind past the tape
leader.
2. Press the REV. MODE button on the Unit if
you want to record on both sides of the
tape.
Press the button until the indicator is lit.
When using Reverse mode, insert the tape so that it will be
recorded in the forwards 3 direction.
3. Check the recording direction for the
tape.
Make sure that the Tape Direction indicator is the same as that
for the tape in the Cassette Deck. If the directions are different,
press the TAPE @ # button to correct the tape direction and
then press the e button to stop the tape.
4. Prepare the source, by, for example, tuning
in a radio station or turning on connected
auxiliary equipment.
Note: For CD recording, refer to “CD Direct Recording” men-
tioned below.
5. Press the REC button on the Unit.
The “TAPE REC” indicator lights up and the System begins re-
cording.
If the tab of the cassette tape is removed to prevent erasure
or recording, “NO REC” will appear on the display.
