Thanks very much, Joel.  I'll take a look.  But you illustrate my main problem 
very well.  In this context, what are transport and special effects??  Well, 
I could possibly guess what special effects are, but "transport"???

I simply don't know enough about recording to be able to use and/or understand 
anything beyond start, stop, fast forward, rewind, record and save. And it 
would be nice to be able to see whether or not anything is being recorded!
