Recording to temporary memory - time limited by the memory available...
This records directly to your computer's temporary volatile memory (such as RAM or whatever). You can then save the result using the Save Rec. As button in the Temp Rec. menu.
The maximum time for the recording is limited by the amount of memory. On a computer of the last few years (as of 2007) this is quite long, perhaps a quarter of an hour or more. On an older computer it can only make very short audio clips.
You can configure it from the Temp Rec Times window, and choose there how much computer memory to set aside for the recording.
If you want to make longer recordings, limited only by the file space available on your computer, use the Record to File window

Alt + F1 or Alt + click (alternatively Caps lock physically held down + F1 or Click) takes you to the on-line page at the robertinventor.com web site about the current main window task - which gives a short introduction to it for newbies to the program. If there is no on-line page specific to a task, takes you to the main tune smithy page on the web site.
Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.
