Recording with the supplied remote control microphone
Connect the supplied remote control microphone to MIC. The built-in microphone will be disconnected and the sound through the remote control microphone will be recorded. The power to the microphone is supplied from this unit. As the recording sensitivity of the remote control microphone is higher than that of the built-in microphone, it is useful to record soft sounds in a quiet place. To start recording, insert a cassette and slide REC PAUSE/REC toward âRECâ while holding the center button down. M-98V

Insert a cassette. Adjust the sound of the connected equipment. Slide REC PAUSE/REC toward âRECâ while holding the center button down.

VOR (Voice Operated Recording)
The VOR system works only while recording. Set VOR to ON first and slide REC PAUSE/REC toward âRECâ while holding the center button down. The unit automatically starts recording the sound and pauses when there is no sound (you can save tapes and batteries). When you use this system in a noisy place the unit stays in the recording mode. If the sound is too soft, on the contrary, the unit will not start recording. When you do not use this function, set VOR to OFF. You can set VOR to ON while recording too. Notes
â¢ The VOR system depends on the environment or operating conditions. Set MIC SENS to H or L depending on the conditions. If you cannot get the desired results, set VOR to OFF. When recording with the supplied remote control microphone, the recording may not stop even if the sound becomes very soft, because the recording sensitivity of the remote control microphone is higher than that of the built-in microphone. â¢ When using the VOR system, the unit starts recording only when a sound is detected, therefore, the beginning of the word may not be recorded. For an important recording, we recommend to recording without the VOR system.
Only standard microcassette have a small indentation of side A.
No sound comes from the speaker. The sound drops out, sound quality becomes worse or sound has excessive noise.
