Technical Documentation PRODUCT OVERVIEW
TASCAM's CD-RW700 CD-Recorder was designed to provide the maximum feature set, while still providing good value. The CD-RW mechanism is manufactured by TEAC, and is one of the most reliable and robust systems available. Digital and analog connections are available for the best transfer methods, and a wireless remote provides total control over the unit. For the best value on the market, get the CD-RW700.


2-U Rack Mount Design Uses Professional CD-R and CD-RW discs Analog Unbalanced RCA I/O 24 bit A/D and D/A Converters SPDIF Digital Coax and Optical I/O
Built-in RAM Buffer for Precise ID Marks Digital Gain Adjustment Function User Selectable Digital Fade In/Fade Out Headphone Output w/ Level Control Wireless Remote Included (RC-RW700)


The CD-RW700 is an incredibly powerful machine for its price, taking advantage of our CD-RW technology developed specifically for the pro audio industry. Personal Studio - Project Studio In personal and budget oriented studios, many users end up accepting limitations of consumer gear and wasting a lot of time figuring out how to get around those limitations. With the CD-RW700, you can put your focus back on production, because this recorder has your solutions. The CD-RW700 breaks away from traditional development of a pro-audio piece. Rather than try to figure out how to add a button or some rack ears to get more money out of a consumer CD-RW machine, we started with our top of the line CD-RW2000 and kept the functions you need most. For starters, a RAM buffer is built in for accurate sync starts and auto ID modes. Further, adjustable parameters on the auto ID logic allow you to adjust your threshold for the auto ID level, so the machine will identify the breaks between tracks, but not add extra ones in soft passages. A digital gain adjustment and digital fade in/out capabilities are also builtin for boosting low recordings, or adding a smoother fade in/out to a song. Audio quality was a top priority with the CD-RW700; you'll find 24 bit A/D and D/A converters for the smoothest sound available. Saving the best for last: you do not need to track down consumer CD-R media to use this machine. The ability to use regular CD-R and CD-RW media will save you a great deal of time and money. DJs - Live Sound Applications - Show Control In applications where the CD-Recorder is going to get a lot of regular use, you can take comfort in the fact that the mechanism in the CD-RW700 is a TEAC data drive, not a flimsy plastic tray. The TEAC CD technology is among the best in the world in reliability, performance and durability. Plus, the drive searches incredibly fast so you don't have to wait to find your cue points. The CD-RW700 is also great for live and show control systems, since the same mechanism can serve as a reliable CD-Recorder for assembling sound cues for a show or presentation, then act as a lightning fast CD player that can be controlled through infrared controllers for automated presentations.

Notes on CD-R media: Quality and recording characteristics of media from different manufacturers will vary from brand to brand. This has to do with different manufacturing processes of both the CD-R media and the CD-R mechanism. (Some media that does not work well with one CD-R mechanism may work reasonably with another.) In order to take the guesswork out of selecting the media, we are posting an approved list of media for use. Media from each of these manufacturers was written to and verified. The media listed as OK is preferred. The media listed as NR typically worked but had a higher error rate, so it is not recommended. Mitsui media is used as the target media reference, so you're always safe with those. We have tested the CD-RW700 for compatability with 74 minute and 80 minute CD media, and the mechanisms will recognize and use the full legnth of the CD.

Quantegy Mitsui Chemical

The CD mechanism shall be a CD-ReWriter design that can mount in a standard 19" rack mount form. Dimensions shall be 19" x 3.9" x 12.5" (W x H x D).
Metric measurements: 483x98x317.5mm.


The first few shipments of the CD-RW700 shipped requiring consumer CD-RDA and CD-RWDA. The original design did not call for this, it was added at the last minute due to legal considerations about the CD-R market. All units that shipped after March, 2000 do not require consumer media. For the older units which required consumer media, the SCMS code and consumer media requirements have a deep system menu allowing these settings to be overridden. Since the legal issues have been resolved, we are releasing the information on how to reset your machine to use regular media. The instructions are as follows: 1) Set the CD-RW700 up so that it receives power, but is left in stand-by mode. 2) Press and hold STOP, PLAY and PAUSE until the display shows 700/80001.00. (It should take about 5 seconds.) 3) Press and hold FINALIZE until the display shows the SCMS status: SCMS=ON 4) Turn the Multi Jog dial to display SCMS=OFF. 5) Press FINALIZE. 6) Press STOP.
The CD recorder shall record to standard CD-R and CD-RW media. Consumer media (CD-RDA and CD-RWDA) shall not be required, however the CD recorder shall be compatible with consumer media as well.

The CD-RW700 CD rewritable recorder allows you to make your own CDs from a variety of sources other CDs, MD recordings, analog cassette tapes, and records. Tracks can be recorded all at one time, or added, until the disc is nalized, allowing it to be played on CD players.
ate permission from the copyright holder or the rightful licensor, your unauthorized recording, reproduction or distribution thereof may result in severe criminal penalties under copyright laws and international copyright treaties. If you are uncertain about your rights, contact your legal advisor. Under no circumstances will TEAC Corporation be responsible for the consequences of any illegal copying performed using the CD-RW700.
Some models of CD player may be unable to play certain discs produced using the CD-RW700.
1.1 About CD-R and CD-RW discs
The CD-RW700 uses CD-R and CD-RW Digital media.
A variety of sophisticated features are incorporated in the CD-RW700, allowing a wide degree of exibility. The CD-RW700 provides analog unbalanced audio inputs and outputs for connection to 10 dBV equipment. In addition, coaxial and optical inputs and outputs are provided for recording from and playing back to suitably-equipped digital audio equipment. The analog and digital signals may be mixed, allowing unprecedented versatility while recording. 24-bit digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters provide excellent recording and playback quality. A sampling frequency convertor is incorporated, allowing the recording of CDs from digital audio sources which are at frequencies other than the CD standard sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz. Track divisions can be entered manually, or can produced automatically as a response to the input signal level. A recording buffer ensures that even the rst milliseconds of a track are recorded, and a rehearsal mode allows the precise positioning of track divisions, allowing the elimination of false starts or late entries. One-touch fade-ins and fade-outs over a specied time allow you to edit program material to your specic requirements. A multi-function multi jog dial is used to set and conrm parameter settings. A wireless remote control unit allows control of the CD-RW700 from remote locations.

CD-R discs can be recorded once only. Once they have been used for recording, they cannot be erased or re-recorded. However, if space is available on the disc, additional material can be recorded. The packaging of CD-R discs will include the following logo:
By contrast, a CD-RW disc can be used in much the same way as a CD-R disc, but the last track or tracks recorded can be erased before the disc has been nalized, and the space on the disc can be re- used for other recordings. The packaging of CD-RW discs will include the a logo similar to the following:
However, you should note that an audio CD created using a CD-RW disc may not play back satisfactorily on every audio CD player. It will, naturally, be playable on the CD-RW700. This is in no way a limitation of the CD-RW700 itself, but of the difference between the different types of media and the methods used to read them. CD-R discs created on the CD-RW700, by contrast, may be played satisfactorily on the majority of audio CD players.
This product is designed to help you record and reproduce sound works to which you own the copyright, or where you have obtained permission from the copyright holder or the rightful licensor. Unless you own the copyright, or have obtained the appropri-


1 IntroductionFinalizing
For details of disc brands that are known to work well with the CD-RW700, see 1.4.5, Recommended media.
1.3 Unpacking the CD-RW700
When unpacking the unit, you should nd the following items, in addition to this manual: The main unit itself The remote control unit Two AA batteries for the remote control unit A rack-mounting screw kit

1.2 Finalizing

Although audio data may be written on a CD-R or CD-RW disc, a standard CD player will not be able to read the data (i.e. play back the audio) until a nal table of contents (TOC) has been written at the start of the disc. The process of writing this table of contents is known as nalizing. Once this has been done, no further data can be written to the disk. See 5.1, Finalizing for details. In the case of a CD-RW disc which has been nalized, the whole of the disc may be erased, or the disc may be refreshed, and the disc re-used. In addition, a CD-RW disc that has been nalized may be unnalized, i.e. the TOC is removed. This allows further tracks to be recorded to the disc, provided that there is space on the disc.

Rack-mounting the unit

Use the rack-mounting kit to mount the unit in a standard 19-inch equipment rack, as shown below. Remove the feet of the unit before mounting it. See 1.4, Environmental considerations below for details of ventilation, etc.

The voltage supplied to the unit should match the voltage as printed on the rear panel. If you are in any doubt regarding this matter, consult an electrician.
When transporting the unit, always use the original packing materials. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you save all the packing materials that came with the CD-RW700, in case you need to transport it in the future.
In addition, when transporting the unit, you should tape the disc tray closed, using an adhesive tape that will not spoil the nish of the unit.
Finger marks and dust should be carefully wiped off the discs recorded surface with a soft cloth. Unlike conventional records, the compact disc has no grooves to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should remove most particles. Wipe in a straight motion from the inside to the outside of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on reproduction quality.
1.4.1 Beware of condensation
If the unit (or a compact disc) is moved from a cold to a warm place, or used after a sudden temperature change, there is a danger of condensation; vapor in the air could condense on the internal mechanism, making correct operation impossible. To prevent this, or if this occurs, leave the player for one or two hours with the power turned on, then turn the power off and on again.
1.4.2 Never use a stabilizer or printable discs
Using commercially available CD stabilizers or printable recordable discs with this player will damage the mechanism and cause it to malfunction.
Never use such chemicals as record sprays, antistatic sprays or uid, benzine or thinner to clean compact discs. Such chemicals will do irreparable damage to the discs plastic surface. Discs should be returned to their cases after use to avoid serious scratches that could cause the laser pickup to skip. Dont expose discs to direct sunlight or high humidity and temperature for extended periods. Long exposure to high temperature can warp the disc. Only use circular compact discs. Avoid using noncircular promotional, etc. discs.
Never use a disc that has had a stabilizer mounted to it. The residual adhesive may cause the disc to stick to the mechanism of the CD-RW700. If it sticks to the mechanism, you will need a technician to get it out.
To keep the laser pickups clean, dont touch them. For the same reason, dont leave the disc trays opened unnecessarily.
1.4.3 Handling of compact discs
Observe the following: Always place the compact discs in the trays with their label facing upward (compact discs can only be played on one side). To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case, and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.

Always make sure that both batteries are replaced together. Do not mix old and new batteries. Do not mix batteries of different types. Always make sure that the batteries are located with the correct polarity (the positive terminals of


2 Features of the CD-RW700Timer operations
5 Press the MULTI JOG control or the ENTER key to conrm the hour setting. The minutes value starts ashing.
8 After step 7 above, the display shows OFF 0:00. 9 Repeat steps 4 through 7 above to set the hours and minutes value. If the TIMER switch C is set to REC or PLAY, the display shows a small clock icon, to show that the unit is in timer mode.
The unit uses the 24 hour military clock, where 1 p.m. is represented by 13, etc.
6 Turn the MULTI JOG control or use the remote control unit SKIP keys to set the current minutes. 7 Press the MULTI JOG control or the ENTER key to conrm the minute setting and return to the standby mode. The unit now shows the current time in standby mode and the colon : between the hours and the minutes ash once per second.

Using the timer

When the start time has been set, slide the TIMER switch C to either the PLAY or REC position, depending on whether playback or recording is to start at the specied time. The display shows a small clock icon to show the unit is in timer mode, in standby mode as well as in power-on mode. When the switch is set to REC, and a recordable disc is loaded, the REC indicator shows beside the clock icon. When the unit is in standby mode and timer playback is selected, the unit will turn on and start playing at the specied time. If recording is selected, the unit will turn itself on one minute before recording is due to start. Recording will start at the specied time at the rst free location on the disc. If the off time is set to a time greater than the length of the disc, and playback is selected, the unit will start playing at the start of the disc, and continue to the end. If timer recording is selected, and the off time is set to a time which is greater than the remaining time on the disc, the unit will continue recording until there is no space left on the disc. If the timer is set, and the unit is switched on at the timer start time, the timer operation will have no effect. If the unit has been disconnected from the power supply so that the clock time has been lost, and the timer switch is set, the clock icon will ash rapidly in standby mode as an indication that the current timer setting is invalid.

3 Playback operationsProgrammed order playback
Selecting the playback mode is only possible using the remote control unit. It is not possible to select the playback mode using the main unit alone.
5 Repeat steps 3 and 4 above until the program is complete. 6 Press the PLAY key (I or L) to start playback at the rst program step. The display shows the track, the current time display, and the program step number. While in programmed playback mode, using the SKIP keys I or the MULTI JOG control B moves backwards and forwards in the order set in the program. Use the PAUSE key (J or K) to halt playback temporarily or the STOP key (H or J) to stop playback of the program. If the STOP key is used, when playback is restarted, it starts from the rst program step. Clear the program by pressing PLAY MODE B until the display shows Continue. The program is also cleared when the disc tray is opened, and if the STOP key is pressed when playback is stopped in programmed order mode. The programmed play order is not memorized when power is turned off. If an attempt is made to enter more than 25 program steps, the message PGM Full ! appears on the display.
1 Press the PLAY MODE key B repeatedly to cycle the display through the following: Program (see 3.2, Programmed order playback below). The red PROGRAM display indicator lights in this mode. Shuffle (random track order). In this mode, each track is played once before the disc repeats. Using the track search functions will move backwards or forwards through the random order, e.g. if track 7 is followed by track 10, it is possible to use the track search keys to go back to track 7, which is remembered as being before immediately before track 10. The red SHUFFLE display indicator lights in this mode. Continue. Normal playback mode. Programming is cancelled, and playback continues in the normal order. The selected mode is shown in large characters disappears from the display a few seconds after selecting the mode, and the display returns to its previous mode.
3.2 Programmed order playback
The steps to set up to 25 program steps (tracks) to be played back in a specied order are as follows: 1 Press the PLAY MODE key B until the display shows Program. 2 The display changes to show 0Tr 0:00 00, meaning that no program steps have yet had tracks assigned to them. 3 Use the number keys to enter a track number (including the +10 key to enter values greater than 9, as described in 3.1.2, Track search). There is no need to press ENTER. The track entered is assigned to the program step, and the display changes, showing the track number, the total time of the program so far, and the step number, e.g. 2Tr14:56 03. 4 The next program step can then be entered.

In the case of either the coaxial or optical inputs being selected, either alone, or together with the analog inputs, the boxed DIGITAL indicator shows on the display, and the appropriate indicator: COAXIAL or OPTICAL, lights on the display. If the analog signal is selected, either alone, or together with either of the digital inputs, the boxed ANALOG indicator lights on the display.

Signal volume

The signals from either of the digital inputs (coaxial or optical) can be mixed with the signals from the analog inputs. The signal path is as follows (this description applies, no matter how many inputs are being mixed): The analog signals received at the ANALOG IN jacks are controlled with the REC LEVEL controls E. Any input analog signals are then mixed with the digital signals received at either the COAXIAL or OPTICAL IN (P or Q). If analog and digital sig-

Frequency conversion

The sampling frequency for CDs is 44.1 kHz. The CD-RW700 will always record (and play back) CDs at this frequency. However, if recording through a digital connection (either coaxial or optical) and the source has been recorded at a frequency other than 44.1 kHz, or is being played back at a non-standard speed using a varispeed unit (more than 1% away from the standard), the CD-RW700s internal frequency converter


4 RecordingBasic recording
will automatically convert the incoming frequency to 44.1 kHz.
If digital direct is selected, as described below (4.3.4, Digital direct), the frequency convertor is bypassed. In this case, recording from digitally-connected devices is only possible when the source frequency is 44.1 kHz. If an attempt is made to record from a digitally-connected source at a different frequency, the error message Not Fs44.1k!is displayed.
An analog signal input at nominal level, with no cut or boost from the volume controls, is equivalent to a reading of 16 dB on the meters (on other words, 0 is equivalent to 16 dBFS). 4 Press the PLAY key (I or L) or the PAUSE key (J or J) to start recording. Note that there is no need to cue up the recording positionthe unit always nds the next available location on the disc and start recording to it. 5 Press the PAUSE key (J or J) to pause recording temporarily. The pause indicator on the display shows this. Pressing PAUSE or PLAY again restarts recording with a new track number. 6 Press STOP (H or J) to stop recording. When recording stops, the display shows PMA Writing (Program Memory Area) and the REC indicator ashes for a few seconds as the unit writes to the disc.

4.2 Basic recording

According to the Red Book (the specication for audio CDs), a track cannot be less than four seconds in length, and there can be a maximum of 99 tracks on an audio CD. Bear these limitations in mind when recording.
If you press either the STOP or the PAUSE key within four seconds of starting recording, the unit will continue recording until four seconds have elapsed (since the start of recording) and then stop or pause as appropriate.
After selecting the input source(s) (4.1, Input selection), it is possible to start recording. The basic record procedure is as follows: 1 Load a recordable disc is into the unit. As the disc is loaded, the display shows TOC Reading. When the disc has been loaded, the display indicators show CD-R, NO TOC, or CD-RW, NO TOC, as appropriate. 2 Press the RECORD key (K or E). The unit enters record ready mode, as shown by the REC and pause indicators on the display. As the unit enters record ready mode, the display shows Now OPC (Optimum Power Control), as the unit prepares to record on the disc. 3 Adjust the level of the source(s), following the guidelines in 4.1.1, Signal volume.
While the PMA Writing message is displayed, all keys are disabled, and the unit is actually writing to disc. Do not disconnect the power or subject the unit to severe vibration or shocks at this time, as this will prevent proper recording of the information.
When this message disappears, you must press the RECORD key (step 2) before restarting the recording. Recording restarts with a new track number.
Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped, when recording is restarted, a new track will always be started. It is not possible to record in two stages within one track.

Playing back tracks

Although an unnalized disc cannot be played back on an ordinary CD player, the CD-RW700 can play back tracks that have been recorded. Use the MULTI JOG control B or the SKIP keys I to select a track for playback.
The red OVER indicators on the meters should never light. Unlike analog equipment, digital audio units produce extremely unpleasant sounds when distorted, and there is no headroom after the 0 mark. If recording digitally from a commercially-produced CD, the volume set in the menu should be 0dB. This will maintain all the dynamic range of the source CD without clipping. Only boost the signal if the source is exceptionally quiet.
Time display while recording
While a recordable disc is being played back, the four time display modes available in normal playback as described in 3.1.1, Time display modes: TOTAL, TOTAL REMAIN, track REMAIN and elapsed track time.


4 RecordingAdvanced recording
However, during recording there are fewer options available (obviously, the unit cannot see into the future and know how much time remains of the track which is being currently recorded!). When in record or record ready mode, repeated presses of the DISPLAY key (A or 6) cycle between displaying the remaining time left for recording on the disc (TOTAL REMAIN) and the elapsed time of the track currently being recorded (no indicator lit). When playback is stopped at the start of a recordable disc, there are only two options available: TOTAL (the total time recorded so far on the disc) and TOTAL REMAIN (the total time available on the disc for further recording). Every time a track division is made, the number shown at the right of the display goes down by one. When the number shown is 1, and a track division is made, the display shows PMA Writing and the unit enters stop mode. The number of remaining tracks can be changed during recording using the MULTI JOG control.

This part of the track is not recorded
Also remember that when recording from an analog source, the threshold should be set so that it is higher than the noise oor (the base level of hiss, pops


and crackles which may come from an older vinyl recording, for example). If the noise oor is higher than the threshold, synchronized recording will not take place (the rehearsal facility can be used here (4.4, Rehearsal) to help):
level Start of track is not registered Noise is higher than threshold
To stop synchronized recording: 1 The unit must be in record mode, and the SYNC indicator in the display must be lit. 2 Stop the source. After a few seconds, the unit enters record ready mode. The time between the stopping of the source and entering record ready mode is used to record a gap at the end of the track. 3 If no changes are made to the units controls, restarting the source restarts recording, as the unit is still in sync mode and will start recording again when the source is detected.
Because synchronized recording can be turned on and off while recording is taking place, it is therefore possible to record with a synchronized automatic start, and a manual end, or vice versa. When the source material is being played back before synchronized recording is enabled, the conditions under which synchronized recording will start (after synchronized recording has been enabled) are: When the signal drops below the threshold for one second or more and then rises above the threshold again (this is the general condition, of which starting synchronized recording from a stopped or paused source is a special case):
At least 1 second Recording starts
When recording in sync mode, you may notice a slight delay between starting the source, and the CDRW700 responding. This is due to the way in which the unit works, storing the data in a memory buffer before writing it to the disc. The resulting delay is therefore not a cause for concernall audio data received between the start and end points will be recorded.

Automatic track division

The trigger level, as set above (4.3.1, Synchronized recording can also be used to divide tracks if the ATRACK (auto track) function is enabled. When this function is enabled, the unit automatically inserts a track division in the recorded material when: recording digitally from MD, CD or DAT, an increment signal is detected and the sound level rises above the threshold:
Track increment from source

However, if recording through a digital connection, the track number will be incremented only when a track division signal is received, followed by a rise in volume.
Track start signal received

Track incremented

Digital direct
As mentioned earlier, the digital direct mode bypasses some of the input circuitry of the CDRW700 (the frequency convertor and the digital level control) to write directly to the disc. To enable or disable digital direct recording: 1 Ensure that the input source is set to DIGITAL (either COAXIAL or OPTICAL). 2 Press the DIGITAL DIRECT key 5 (main unit only). The display shows D_Direct XX where XX is ON or OFF.
A fall and subsequent rise in volume alone when recording digitally from CD, MD or DAT is not sufcient to trigger an


4 RecordingRehearsal
3 Press the DIGITAL DIRECT key to toggle between ON and OFF. When digital direct recording is enabled, the DIGITAL indicator in the display ashes slowly.
It is possible to set the fade-in time only (perform step 5 after step 2) or the fade-out time only (in step 1, press the MENU key until the fade-out time menu item is shown). To perform the fade-in: 1 With a recordable disc loaded, press the RECORD key (K or E) so that the unit enters record ready mode. 2 Start the source material, and press the FADER key (M or 9). The display shows FADE IN for the time specied in the menu item above. As the fade progresses, the monitored signal gradually becomes louder, reecting the level recorded on disc. To perform a fade-out: 1 While recording, press the FADER key (M or 9). The display shows FADE OUT for the time specied in the menu above. As the fade progresses, the monitored signal gradually becomes quieter, reecting the level recorded on disc. 2 When the end of the fade-out time is reached, the unit goes into record ready mode. Recording can be restarted with the FADER key or the PLAY or PAUSE keys. The fade-in and fade-out times can be reset to new values while recording is in progress. Fades are also possible in digital direct mode (4.3.4, Digital direct).
As mentioned earlier, the digital direct feature bypasses the frequency convertor. Recording is therefore only possible from sources recorded with 44.1 kHz sampling frequency.

Rec mute function

The rec mute function allows instant cut-off of the input signal, and records four seconds of silence on the disc. 1 While recording is in progress, press the REC MUTE key G. The display shows REC MUTE, the meters stop displaying the current level and the monitored sound is cut. 2 After about four seconds, the unit enters record ready mode.
This function is only available from the remote control unit. It is not possible to use this function with the main unit only.

Fade-in and fade-out

To provide smooth beginnings and endings to recorded tracks, the unit provides fade facilities. Fade-ins are from (silence) to the set input level (4.1.1, Signal volume) and fade-outs go from the current input volume to silence. The fade-in and fade-out times can be set independently in increments of one second, from 1 second to 24 seconds. To set the fade times: 1 Press the MENU key (9 or 7) repeatedly until the display shows FADE IN > XXS, where XX is the current fade-in time, in seconds. 2 Turn the MULTI JOG control B or use the SKIP keys Ito change the value of the fade-in time. 3 Press the MENU key again so that the display shows FADE OUT> XXS, where XX is the current fade-out time, in seconds. 4 Turn the MULTI JOG control or use the SKIP keys to change the value of the fade-out time.

4.4 Rehearsal

There are two areas in which the units rehearsal facilities can be used: synchronized recording (4.3.1, Synchronized recording) and automatic track division (4.3.2, Automatic track division). The purpose of the rehearsal facilities is to allow you to override the automatic synchronized recording and track division facilities where necessary. Here is an example where this facility may be of value: A piece has been recorded on DAT, with a verbal count-in immediately prior to the rst drum beat. This count-in is not to be recorded as a part of the CD track, but the threshold level has been set to a


level where the fourth count will trigger recording ( 24 dB this is the limit of the threshold sensitivity and cannot be adjusted further).

Drum beat

Both the sync start trim and the track start trim can take the same value and can be used in the same recording. The maximum trim value is 125 frames on either side of the original point (represented by 0), where there are 75 frames in a second (i.e. 1.67 seconds).




Rehearsal for synchronized recording
Sync recording starts here

To perform a synchronized recording, using the rehearsal mode to slip the start of the track forwards or backwards: 1 Load a recordable disc into the unit and make sure the unit is in stop mode. 2 Cue the source material to the start of the source track to be recorded (i.e. in the example above, this would be just before the count-in). 3 Press the RHSL key 4 so that the display shows Waiting Sync. 4 Start playing the source. When the start of the track is detected (as explained in 4.3.1, Synchronized recording), the display changes to Sync RHSL. 5 If the rehearsal does not start at the region of the true start point, press the RHSL key once again to re-arm the trigger. 6 After nine seconds, the message changes from Sync RHSL, and the sampled data loops in a four-second loop. The display shows Sync 0:0X, where X is the current second of the loop. 7 Stop the source. 8 Turn the MULTI JOG control B to adjust the point of the loop. The display shows: TRIM = +XXXf or TRIM = -XXXf, where XXX can be a number between 0 and 125 and changes back to the Sync 0:0x display when the loop restarts. Every time the trim value is changed, the loop starts replaying from the new start point. 9 When the new start point has been set, press the STOP key (H or J). 10 Cue up the source material to the original point set in step 2. 11 Press the RECORD key (K or E) to enter record ready mode, and then press the SYNC REC key (L or F).
When the rehearsal facility is used, the source is cued up and played, and the rst few seconds of the track are sampled and looped. The position of the loop can be adjusted.
This section is looped. The MULTI JOG control adjusts the position of the loop
When this offset has been set, synchronized recording takes place with the start occurring at the new location:
Sync recording starts at new point
This example shows how the start time can be moved forward, in order to eliminate unwanted false starts. It is also possible to slip the start time backwards, in order to record a quiet passage that would otherwise not trigger the sync recording facility (this is done by the use of a memory buffer). As well as being used for changing the start time of synchronized recording, the start of an automatic track division can also be trimmed backwards and forwards in a similar way.


12 Start playing the source material. The unit starts recording, with the start point being determined by the trim value.
a four-second loop. The display shows Inc 0:0X, where X is the current second of the loop. 8 Stop the source. 9 Turn the MULTI JOG control B to adjust the point of the loop. The display shows: TRIM = +XXXf or TRIM = -XXXf, where XXX can be a number between 0 and 125 and changes back to the Inc 0:0x display when the loop restarts. 10 When the track division point has been xed, press the STOP key (H or J). 11 Press the RECORD key (K or E) to enter record ready mode. The synchronized recording mode can be used here, and so the SYNC REC key (L or F) may be pressed to prepare for synchronized recording. 12 Cue up the source material to the point where recording is to start. 13 Start playing the source material. If sync recording is not being used, start recording on the CD-RW700 (otherwise recording starts automatically). When the track division point (plus or minus the trim value set earlier) is reached, the recording will divide into tracks. Note that if a positive trim value is set (i.e. the start point of the track is slipped to a position past the normal start), the counter shows a minus value (e.g. -0.02) for the period between the normal and the actual adjusted start position. This minus value is also displayed when recording starts, if sync recording has been enabled.
If a trim setting is made for the sync start, this will apply to all sync starts and track divisions made in the future until the value is reset using the procedure above.
Rehearsal for track division
In the same way that the automatic threshold may produce a false trigger, starting recording at the wrong point, the automatic threshold may produce false track divisions. By rehearsing the point at which the track division is to be made, it is possible to trim the division point so that it corresponds to a the track division which is actually required. 1 Load a recordable disc into the unit and make sure the unit is in stop mode. 2 If the unit is not already in auto track mode, set it so that the A-TRACK indicator is lit on the display (4.3.2, Automatic track division). 3 Cue the source material to a little before the point of the planned track division. 4 Press the RHSL key 4 twice so that the display shows Waiting Inc. If the auto track mode has not previously been selected, the display shows No Inc Mode when the key is pressed. 5 Start playing the source. When the start of the track is detected (as explained in 4.3.1, Synchronized recording), the display changes to Inc RHSL. 6 If the rehearsal does not start at the region of the true track division point, press the RHSL key once again to re-arm the trigger. 7 After nine seconds, the message changes from Inc RHSL, and the sampled data loops in

If a trim setting is made for the track division, this will apply to all track divisions and sync starts made in the future until the value is reset using the procedure above.


This section deals with the actions taken after recording: nalizing for CD-R and CD-RW discs, and erase operations for CD-RW discs. Once nalized, CD-R discs are truly nalno more can be recorded on them. By contrast, CD-RW discs can be unnalized using the CD-RW700, i.e. their TOC can be deleted, and if there is space, further material can be recorded on them. Even if the disc is full, tracks can be erased following the unnalize process, and new material can be recorded. 1 With the nalized disc loaded and the unit in stop mode, press the ERASE key (G or D). 2 If the display does not show the word Unfinalize?, turn the MULTI JOG control B or use the SKIP keys I until it is displayed. 3 If you do not want to proceed with the unnalizing process, press any other key (such as the STOP key). 4 To start the unnalizing process, press the MULTI JOG control B or press the ENTER key 8. 5 If unnalization has been chosen, the NO TOC indicator starts ashing in the display, and the word ERASE also starts ashing. The unit starts counting down from a time shown on the display (depending on the disc and material, this value will be between 50 seconds and 1 minute 30 seconds). 6 After unnalization, a CD-RW indicator changes to a CD-RW NO TOC indicator.

5.1 Finalizing

As has been explained earlier (1.2, Finalizing), in order for a disc to become a standard CD, it must have a Table of Contents (TOC) written to it. This process is known as nalizing. An unnalized disc can always be distinguished on the CD-RW700 by the NO TOC indicator under the disc type on the display being lit when the disc is inserted. To nalize a disc: 1 With the unnalized (recordable) disc loaded, and the unit in stop mode, press the FINALIZE key (F or C). The display shows Finalize OK?. 2 If you do not want to proceed with the nalizing process, press any other key (such as the STOP key). 3 To start the nalizing process, press the MULTI JOG control B or press the ENTER key 8. 4 If nalization has been chosen, the display changes. The NO TOC indicator goes out, and the word TOC and the REC indicator ashes in the display. The unit starts counting down from a time shown on the display (about 1 minute 10 seconds). 5 After nalization, a CD-RW NO TOC changes to CD-RW and a CD-R NO TOC changes to a CD.
