A curious backtrack behaviour.
by antonioc67 on 2013-04-10 14:36:23.6110

Hello all,

I have a backtrack+mic device and i use it to record my guitar lesson with the teacher.

Even if I mark very few events I found lots of marked recordings which are unwanted: they should stay in the unmarked directory and they didn't since I never pushed the mark button all that times.

How can it happen?

Note... The events are captured with mic in soft autocapture mode.

Thank you very much for the help,

What may be happening is that your auto-capture settings do not properly detect what you consider to be the end of a recording. For instance, assume your capture trigger is soft, and your required duration of silence to end the recording is, say, 3 seconds. In that case if either you or your instructor starts talking (or make any other noise) within 3 seconds after you've 'finished', the Backtrack will not stop and place the file in the Unmarked folder; rather it will  continue recording. After doing this several times and finally Marking a good 'take', all takes will have been recorded in the one wav file.

I suggest you play around with the settings in the Backtrack Setup Utility.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
