BR-1180, BR-1180CD: Understanding Scrub and Preview
When editing a sound, there are times when you need to know exactly where the sound starts, or exactly where the recording with an auto punch in starts. To enable you to find these points accurately, your BR-1180/1180CD is equipped with the Scrub Function.
When you play back using the Scrub function, an extremely short portion (45 msec) either before or after the current location will be played back repeatedly. By using this in conjunction with the Preview function, you can scrub-play back the material before the current location, or use a longer time than scrub (1.0 seconds) to find breaks between phrases.
With the Preview Function, you can playback the one-second portion of the song before or after your current position. By using this together with the Scrub Function, at the same time slowly moving your current position in the song, it becomes easy to find the exact transition point from one phrase to the next.
