Before you burn a CD or export a mix to your computer, you must first mix down your tracks. This process is called "bouncing." To bounce tracks in the BR-1200CD, follow these steps:
- Adjust the track settings (i.e. volume, pan, effects, etc) so that the recording sounds the way you like it when it is played.
- Press the ZERO button to rewind to the beginning of the song.
- Press the REC MODE button repeatedly until the red indicator is lit next to BOUNCE.
- At this time 11/12 should be flashing; if not, press the REC TRACK button for 11/12 so it does start flashing.
- Press REC, and then press PLAY. Both PLAY and REC buttons will light and recording (bouncing) begins.
- When the song ends, press STOP.
- To check that the bouncing was successful, lower all volume faders except for 11/12 and the Master.
- Press the ZERO button and then press PLAY. Press STOP when you're finished listening.
- Press the V-TRACK button and then the REC TRACK button for 11/12 (the circular button beneath the volume fader for track 11/12).
- Look at the screen where it says V-Track. Take note of what number it's on because this is what youre going to be either burning to CD or exporting as a WAV or AIFF file to your computer. For example, if it says "V-Track: 3", youre going to burn or export "11/12-3"--this is tracks 11/12, virtual track 3.
- To store the new bounced recording, press and hold STOP and then press REC - "Save Current?" appears in the display.
- Press ENTER.
Now you can burn a CD or track export to a computer using the bounced track from Step 13 above.
