Recording conditions file

A Recording Conditions File is selected (and can be modified) prior to each recording session. Some of the entries are accessed for completion of the label-file header, others are for general reference. A number of files specifying different recording conditions can be stored and selected when requested. It describes a referenced set of recording conditions.
1.RCD 1 is recording conditions code 1, implying that this file is the first of a number of defined conditions.
