BR-1180, BR-1180CD: Manually Punching in and out Using a Footswitch
If you wish to use a separately sold foot switch (such as the DP-2 or BOSS FS-5U) to punch-in/out, connect the foot switch to the FOOT SW jack. Use the following procedure to set the function of the FOOT SW jack:
1. Press UTILITY.
2. Use CURSOR to select the SYSTEM icon, and press ENTER.
3. Use CURSOR UP or DOWN to move the cursor to the Foot Switch location, and use the TIME/VALUE dial to select PUNCH I/O.
This is the parameter for setting the function of the foot switch connected to the FOOT SWITCH jack.
The song will alternate between play and stop each time you press the foot switch.
The foot switch will have the same function as REC. Use this to switch between record and playback during manual punch-in recording.
4. Press EXIT several times to return to the top screen.
