Could I get help with the Trigger feature? I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding something, or if in fact the feature isn't working as described.
I have Trigger set to repeat, with a new file. Starts above -34dB for 2s, and stops below -40dB for 2s. Pre-split gap set to 2s.
When it starts out, all appears well. I press the record button on the Recording screen, and the trigger status bar appears, size remains at 0, and filename is blank. As long as I don't make noise for 2 consecutive seconds, it doesn't record. I start making noise and the trigger status bar starts filling up, and size remains at 0. Once I make noise for 2 full seconds, it starts recording, creates a file and size starts increasing.
So far so good. However, once I stay quiet for 2s, and the trigger status bar empties out again, instead of going back into the waiting state, it immediately starts a new file, with a new filename, and the size starts incrementing. During this, the trigger status bar remains empty unless I make noise. If I make noise for 2s, then it'll fill up and start a new file. Once I stop making noise for 2s and it empties out again, it starts another new file. It never just sits and waits for a trigger to start recording. Once it's been triggered once it is always recording something. This isn't the correct functionality is it?
Could this be related to the presplit gap setting? I admit I don't really understand the manual's explanation that once this time is hit, a new recording "may" be starts (may depending upon what?). I don't think it's related though, because I've tried setting that to 0, 2, and 30 and the behavior I described remains.
