Record Mode Screen

With the Record Mode screen, text and audio may be recorded and then saved as clips in the clipboard. The combination of audio and text within one clip is possible, enabling further workflows within the ReporterBox.

To change to the Record Mode screen, use the tabs at the lower screen edge. The background color then changes to red:

Define Recording Format Templates

With Options Settings  Record, recording templates may be created. As soon as a template has been saved, a list box appears in the Record Mode screen and in the ReporterBox.

Before any recording, the desired Recording format template may be selected (here it is Linear 24bit). Without selecting a template, that format will be used which is defined in the Record tab.

Prepare Recording

The recording function may be prepared without starting the actual recording. This is to listen to the audio source and to level the input signal.

  1. Click the Record button.
  2. For levelling the input signal, click and move the round controls with the left mouse button.
    This shifts left and right channel at once
  3. You may shift the right or left channel separately by using the right mouse button:

  4. Double-clicking the controls adjusts both of them to the same position.


A recording may be interrupted and restarted at any time - without deletion of previous recordings:

Alternatively, you can use the scroll bar:

Markers are deleted by clicking the Delete marker button. The marker at the current sound head position will be deleted.
