MR-8HD Owner’s Manual (Part editing)
The time (or bar/beat/clock) value changes
in realtime as the recorder moves (i.e. when
it plays, fastforwards, rewinds, locates, etc.).
When you carry out the locate operation
to the LOCATE A or LOCATE B point and
the current position matches the locate
point, "LocA=" (or "LocB=") is shown to the
left of the current position information, as
shown below. This shows that the recorder
is now at the LOCATE A (or LOCATE B)
1) Move the recorder to the desired point
by using the [PLAY], [REWIND] or [F FWD]
2) While the recorder is at the desired point,
press the [STORE] key and followed by
the [LOCATE A/IN] or [LOCATE B/OUT]
The old editing point is overwritten by
the new point. After setting the new
editing point, "LocA=" (or "LocB=") is
shown to the left of the current position
information, as shown left.
After setting the new editing points, you
can edit (erase, paste, move or exchange)
data of newly specified part.
On the screen for selecting the target
track(s) to be edited, you can see the cur-
rent recorder position information (in ABS
