A .WAV file is a popular format for exchanging audio from different recording systems. More specifically, from the BR-1180 to your computer. Programs such as Windows Media Player, iTunes, Sonar, Cubase, and ProTools are examples of programs that will read .WAV files. If you would like to get your BR-1180 audio tracks to the MP3 format, you would first have to export it as a .WAV file and then convert it in programs such as iTunes.
Exporting audio as a .WAV file:
1. First, select the song that contains the audio you wish to export as a .WAV file. If it’s already playing back, then you do not need to select the song again because it’s already loaded.
2. Put a blank CDR in the CD drive.
3. Press the DATA SAVE/LOAD button to the right of the MASTER fader.
4. Cursor to the right until you get to the WAVE icon, press the ENTER/YES button to select it.
5. Cursor to the right to get to EXPORT and press the ENTER/YES button to select it.
6. Cursor to the spot in the screen where it says “???-?”. Use your TIME/VALUE dial and cursor buttons to select the track and V-Track you wish to export as a .WAV file (Ex. “7/8-1″)
7. Cursor to the “LOC” box and press the ENTER/YES button.
8. Cursor to the “ALL” box and press the ENTER/YES button. This selects the entire track to export.
