To call up the Recording window, in MADRIX, please go to the menu 'Window' -> 'Recording...' (or 'Ctrl+Alt+R').
Files, i.e. records, will be displayed in the large list. If you did not create any records yet, the list is empty (as shown above).
'Directory' specifies a directory on your hard disk. All record files will be saved in this folder. By default, a useful folder is already chosen for you (For example C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\MADRIX3\records).
You can change the directory. Use this button to browse for a different folder on your hard disk.
Use this filter to search for specific files in the list. Simply enter a name/word and the filter will only show files that include these characters in their file name. Delete any input to show all files.
