This package gives you all the necessary tools to record, edit and finalize your own audio only DAISY 2.02 books.
PTR2 can be operated in 2 main modes called “Normal” mode and “Book Creator” mode. You can switch between these 2 modes at any time. The PTR2 will be supplied with Normal mode set as the default. Normal mode gives you a simplified interface and makes the process of creating a recording very straightforward. This mode of operation is ideal for a beginner or for someone who wants to make a recording quickly and easily. Some of the more advanced recording and editing features are not available to you in this mode. Book Creator mode gives you all the necessary tools to create a fully structured, audio only, DAISY 2.02 book including insert, punch in and overwrite recording, phrase editing and the ability to set heading levels.
You can listen to DAISY CD, Music CD, audio file CD anywhere anytime. Navigation can be done easily with using page key, heading key, bookmark key and numeric key (2,4,6,8).
Radio program, TV program, lecture and conference can be recorded in CD or CF card. Track and page can be made during recording. Editing such as delete, copy and paste can be done after recording.
Data in many cassette tapes can be converted into one CD. By compressing data in MP3 format, long-hour recording in one CD is possible. (For example, 20 hours of recording under MP3 64kbps Mono format can be saved in one CD.)
Back-up of DAISY title and Music CD is possible with PTR2. If there is DAISY CD or Music CD that you would like to keep, data in CD can be transferred into CF card and then data in CF card is burnt into CD.
Note: PTR2 conforms to SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) standards. This standard regulates the recording and copying of digital signals between digital audio devices, up to 1 generation from the original.
Music CD can be stored in CF card or micro drive by back-up function. If you select the MP3 format ( MP3 128kbps Stereo or MP3 256kbps Stereo), many music data can be stored in large capacity card ( e.g. 4GB or 6GB ), and you can enjoy listening to them.
