The Initial Auto Tune Option on the Triax 537

Comments

  • It is a slow process - takes 40-50 seconds (instead of 4-5 expected)
  • Add on extra channels like this can totally change the order of your order channels
    • very frustrating

How to Record  & Playback Programmes on the Triax ST HD 537

This feature is a bit quirky and a few glitches see video
