SummaryUse of a previously unused region of the MD to store various disc-based settings, such as program play order, and track "quick-start" indication (this being a mode used in sound effects applications wherein the audio at the beginning of a track is held in buffer memory to provide immediate playback at the push of a button). (Does the Tascam pro deck use this?)
AbstractIn the present invention, a user can set the order of playing-back programs recorded in a program region, with interactive playback then being possible by recording the playback order of programs set by the user in a management region.
