BR-864: The Track Erase Function

Tags: track,erase,remove,br-864,eliminate
Track Erase allows you to erase a specific part of data. Even if data exists after the specified part, it will not be moved forward to fill the gap left by the erasure. Like a normal tape recorder, erasing can be considered covering unwanted data by recording emptiness.

Perform the procedure given below to erase the portion from the repeat start (A) to the repeat end (B):

1. Press [UTILITY].

2. Press CURSOR [<] or [>] to move the cursor to "TRK," and press [ENTER].

3. Press CURSOR [<] or [>] to move the cursor to "ERS," and press [ENTER].

4. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial to select "AB" and press [ENTER].

5. Use CURSOR [<] or [>] and the TIME/VALUE dial to select the track/V-Track to erase from.

6. When you are ready to execute the erasure, press [ENTER]. The display will ask "Are you sure?," so that you can confirm the operation.

7. Press [ENTER]. The erasure is executed.

8. Press [UTILITY] (or press [EXIT] repeatedly) to return to the Play screen.


TRACK ERASE BY TIME/MEASURES
Use the following procedure to erase a portion of a track between specific times:

1. Press [UTILITY].

2. Press CURSOR [<] or [>] to move the cursor to "TRK," and press [ENTER].

3. Press CURSOR [<] or [>] to move the cursor to "ERS," and press [ENTER].

4. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial to select "TME/MES" and press [ENTER].

5. Use CURSOR [<] or [>] and the TIME/VALUE dial to select the track/V-Track to erase from.

6. Press [ENTER].

7. Use [CURSOR] and the TIME/VALUE dial to specify the beginning of the portion "S" (Start) of data you want to erase.

8. Press [ENTER].

9. Use [CURSOR] and the TIME/VALUE dial to specify the ending of the portion "E" (End) of data you want to erase.

10. When you are ready to execute the erasure, press [ENTER]. The display will ask "Are you sure?," so that you can confirm the operation.

11. Press [ENTER]. The erasure is executed.

12. Press [UTILITY] (or press [EXIT] repeatedly) to return to the Play screen.

NOTE: After specifying the time in the procedure above, a “+” may appear to show that there is a discrepancy between the actual current position and the position displayed. If you specify the locations using measures, specify the locations at each screen using the TIME/VALUE dial to eliminate the discrepancy.

NOTE: You can also enter the time using [LOCATOR], [ZERO], [STOP] + [REW], [STOP] + [FF], and AUTO PUNCH [IN/OUT].
