Tip: recording from other sources

And here is a top tip: you can indeed record from ACC -> DCC, and also from tuner -> DCC or tuner -> ACC, but you should not use those small preset buttons for recording.

You proceed as follows:

  • Suppose you want to record from ACC -> DCC. Insert the ACC and the empty DCC, rewind the DCC, press REC PAUSE on the DCC, RECORD will appear on the display, the player will start writing LEAD IN etc., please wait for it, then press PLAY on the analog deck and on PLAY of the DCC. A recording is made from the ACC to the DCC.
  • Same for recording from Tuner to ACC or DCC: press REC PAUSE, press TUNER, and press PLAY. This works for both the analog deck and the digital deck.

Good luck with it!
