Using the CD Writer feature, you will be able to record one or more ENF (MIDI playback) performances as a audio file or burn to a CD playable in your car, home stereo, etc. In order to burn to CD, it will be necessary to have a CD-R (CD Writable) device installed and connected to your system.

NOTE: Some external CD-R devices may no respond to the CD Writing “burn” com- mand. In this case, you should record to .WAV file and use dedicated CD burning software to record to CD.
