MONITOR Switch 13, BIAS FINE Control 14, OUTPUT LEVEL Control AUTO REC MUTE CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION The AUTO REC MUTE circuit consists of a flip-flop ‘composed of two HAND gates (IC401), and the remaining HAND gates, C and D. When the AUTO REC MUTE circuit is not functioning, pins 13, 11, 8 ,and 10 of IC401 are HIGH, LOW, LOW, and HIGH respectively. The LOW level signal from pin 11 causes D410, TR405, TR406, and TR111 to be tuned off, allowing the unit for normal recording operation. If the AUTO REC MUTE button is pressed during recording, the level at point a momentally goes from LOW to HIGH. (The AUTO REC MUTE switch is 0 “momentary” switch.) This HIGH level pulse from point a momentarily turns on TR407, which is then slowly turned off through ‘the discharging path via C405. ‘The level at point b momentarily goes from HIGH to LOW when TR407 is momentarily turned on, but is gradually raised to HIGH. (Figure 2) ‘The LOW level input to pin 13 of the flip-flop makes its pin 11 HIGH, This sets pin 10 of the flip-flop at a stable LOW state. Since the HIGH level output from pin 11 of the flip= flop causes D410, TR405, TR405, and TR111 to be turned off, the output of C102 is not coupled to the 2 18, REC LEVEL Control 16, MIC Jacks 17.

(Figure 3) The AUTO REC MUTE circuit provides for 4 second interval of record muting state, which is eccomplished by HAND gates C and D. When the AUTO REC MUTE switch is pressed, pin 1 of ‘the HAND gate goes L, while its pin 3 goes HIGH. Pin 5 of the gate goes HIGH for a period (approx 4 seconds) in which C408 is charged up. A HIGH level input is coupled from pin 11 to pin 6 of the HAND gates. This brings pin 4 to LOW, causing the HAND gates, C and D, to be set in a stable state. The differential circuit, C408 and R423, brings pin 5 to LOW level approximately 4 seconds later. (Figure 6) This sets pin 4 to HIGH, causing pin 2 of gate C also to be set to HIGH. Since pin 1 is already recurned to HIGH (because of the “momentary” nature of the switch), pin 3. is brought down to LOW. C407 is charged at the moment when pin 3 momentarily goes LOW. This momentarily brings the level at e to LOW, and hence the input to D411 is also reset to LOW by pin 10 of HAND gate B. As a result, TR409 is turned on. This turns on TR504 and TRSO3, which activate the pause solenoid to place the unit in the pause mode.
