    Making a 14 minute timer CD

    We are hosting a fun match next weekend and want to run two targets together and use a 14 minute timer. I need to have the range commands on CD for the loudspeaker. Can someone give me instructions on how to do that?

    CD burner?

    You should be able to use your computer's CD burner (assuming it has one), and a microphone plugged into the sound card. If you don't have a CD burner, then you need to find someone who does.

    Using the microphone as the audio input and Windows Media Player as the software to start the recording.

    When you get that far, post again.

    Found the Windows media player, plugged in the Mic, can't figure on what to do to record or even get voice onto WMP.

    Good idea.

    Recording onto a CD is a good idea. One of our semi-local match directors (for SB silhouette) has done the same thing. The recorded commands ensure consistenty and accurate timing. It also allows the range director to participate in one of the relays.

    I think the idea has a downside. A person making the announcements can listen and watch the activity on the range and make adjustments to the commands as required. He can still participate in one of the relays if he likes.

    If you have an MP3 player, that is the best solution. Just save your digital recording in MP3 format. Concussion from the guns has a tendency to make the CD skip and mess up the timing.

    FWIW,
