Increasing the Recorder Countdown.

Whenever I record, I need to move into my recording booth and it takes about 15-20 seconds to get there and begin my voice recording.  I would like to be able to increase my countdown to at least 15 seconds.  I looked in Windows Registry but didn't see anything that I could change there.

So I guess the 10 seconds is hardwired into the programming and cannot be increased??

Thanks for any comments about this.

I assume you're starting Recorder outside the booth?

try this ...

start Recorder [maybe set to not pause at start, no countdown]; when you're in the booth, ready to go, just stay something like "begin recording"

then, just cut that out of the captures

Clap right before you record. You will see the big spike in the recording and know exactly what to cut out very quickly.

Start recording and pause when the countdown reach zero. Use a 2nd keyboard in the booth to un-pause (and pause) as desired. If there isn't room in the booth for a KB, try a programmable foot pedal. Search Amazon for "iKKEGOL usb programmable foot pedal switch". You can program it to press "F9" for you.
