The main feature on Recorder interface is the Task list (1) with two information: task name and task length.

Task name: By default, a task is named base on the name of the application producing the audio stream and the timestamp of when the recording process started. To understand the new name format and/or the folder in which your recordings will be saved, see Base Folder and Template of Recorder Settings.

Task length: The data under Length displays the elapsed time and the size of the recording.

The light preceding a task name shows the status of that task. There are five different light statuses:

Green: the task is ready to be executed.

Yellow with double green vertical line: the task was paused.

Red: the task is being executed. The light will be red as long as the audio stream is being recorded.

Yellow with a cross on the light: the task was completed.

Red exclamation mark (!) appears before a task: an error occurred while recording, the Recorder had to stop the task.
