    TASCAM DR40X
    Hi everyone. Is it possible to set a Tascam DR-40X recorder to record for a set interval every hour? I can see that I can split the recording into intervals (e.g., 5min, 10min). We are trying to set the Tascam to record for 5min every hour, then essentially 'turn-off' or stop recording for the other 55mins, then turn back on to complete another 5min recording.

    I have searched the manual high and low and haven't been able to find anything on the forums. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Or is this simply not possible on this device?

    Thanks in advance!!
