  • superb tutorial, many thanks. Couldn't find the technical calls info to start with (and I still can't get it to pop up) but unsurprisingly it turns out to be under the 'call' menu (v5.1, PC). Your tutorial has given me a much better understanding of how it all works and confidence to record interviews without worrying that something’s going to mess up. Big thumbs-up!
