SEPTEMBER ARTICLE of the MONTH

Been on holiday so a little late this month.

Roger’s Music Page         September Article

One subject that a lot of you have asked about and also comes up regularly at my weekly Product Seminars is how to Record Songs and various things that you can do with them, so this time I will be looking at this subject.
I will try and keep it simple and this month I will be using a CVP409, although, the procedure is very much the same for most models.
Before you start recording, make sure it says NEW SONG next to BUTTON I   in the SONG box on the MAIN SCREEN.
If it doesn’t, then press the two buttons, REC and STOP simultaneously in the SONG CONTROL section and select the NO option on the screen.
 It says NEW SONG under these two buttons.

HOW TO RECORD A SIMPLE PIECE OF MUSIC

1.  Choose your sound, ie PIANO, press and hold the REC button while you press upper number 1 button under the screen.
It should now say REC in red in the number 1 box near the bottom of the screen.
2.  Play your song.
3.  Press STOP when you have finished, then press STOP again.
4.  Press PLAY to hear the song playback.
5.  Press REC and STOP at the same time. The screen will prompt you to save your song. If you want to, press YES, followed by SAVE at the bottom of the screen. You can now give the song a name and it will then be stored in the USER SONG MEMORY.

TO ADD A SECOND PART TO YOUR SONG

1.  Select your song then press, and hold the REC button again as you press the upper number 2 button under the screen.
It should now say REC in red in the number 2 box near the bottom of the screen.
2.  As you start to record your second part you will hear the first part playing.
3.  Press STOP when you have added your 2nd part, then press STOP again.
4.  Press PLAY to hear both parts playing and press STOP when it has finished.
5.  Press REC and STOP at the same time again to SAVE your song.

Remember that you can keep adding more and more parts right up to 16 if you wish.
It is a good idea to use the METRONOME when recording, especially if you want to see the SCORE that you have recorded displayed correctly on the screen.
Please give me a call on 07932626585 if you are unsure of any of this article which we will continue next month.
See you soon.  Roger
