The slow speed (3-3/4 i.p.s.) is normally
used for voice recording (such as confer-
ences, etc.) and the fast speed (7-1/2 i.p.s.)
is normally used for recording music since it
provides better fidelity at high frequencies.
Set the tape counter to 000 using the knurled thumbwheel.
OPERATING PROCEDURES .
The recorder has two modes of operation, the record mode and the
In the record mode, the sound input may be applied
using the microphone for "live" input, or from an external sound source

(3) Depress RECORD switch and speak into the microphone or
apply audio from external source, and set the RECORD LEVEL control
for "peak" readings of zero on the VU meter. This sets the record
amplifier circuits to the proper recording level.
(4) Depress the stop switch.
(5) To start recording, depress the RECORD and PLAY switches
(6) Periodically check the record level as indicated on the
Peak readings should occur at approximately 0 VU on the
