BR-1180CD, BR-1180: Punching In/Out Manually
You may occasionally make a mistake while recording, or the performance may not turn out as you expect. In this case, you can punch in/out to re-record only a portion of the track. Changing to recording during the playback of a song is referred to as punching in, and changing from recording to playback is referred to as punching out. Therefore, punch in at the location where you want to begin the re-recording, and punch out at the location where you want the re-recording to end.
Use the following procedure to manually punch in/out on track 1 of the BR-1180/1180CD:
1. Press REC TRACK 1. REC TRACK 1 lights alternately in orange and green.
2. Place the fader for track 1 about 2/3 of the way up.
3. Make sure that the AUTO PUNCH IN/OUT ON/OFF indicator is dark. If it is lit, press ON/OFF to make the indicator go out.
4. Start playback and adjust the volume of the input source using the INPUT LEVEL knob. While the song is playing, you can hold down [TRACK MUTE] and press REC TRACK  to mute track 1. Repeat this to cancel muting.
Listen to the track you will be re-recording and the input source and adjust the volume of the input source using the INPUT LEVEL knob so that it is the same level as the track.
5. After you have adjusted the volume of the input source, make sure that muting of track 1 is cancelled.
6. Move to a position before where you want to start re-recording and press PLAY to start playback.
7. Press REC to punch in at the location where you want to start recording. The BR-1180/1180CD starts recording. To punch-out, press REC (or PLAY) once again. Each time you press REC, you punch in and punch out, so if there is another location that you want to redo, then you can punch in again at that location using the same procedure.
8. When you finish recording, press STOP.
9. Listen to the re-recorded result. Return the song to a point earlier than you re-recorded, and play it back. Adjust the volume of track 1 using the TRACK fader.
