I took the Impression out of the box and had tech support set it up and I took it on a job the next day and never looked back.  Tossed my two Diamantes in the corner.  You'll love it.  You should toss your Martel Microphone to the curb too.  What a POS, if you ask me.

The audio Loop back works really well.  You will want to set that under Options area of the machine.  Also, your Martel mic should work great.  Please if I can help you with anything, don't forget to email me or call.

Congrats on your new Impression. Let us know how it goes.

Hi All,

I am the proud new owner of an Impression that I just received a couple days ago.  I haven't taken it on a job yet, but have gone through the tutorial and spent some time on the phone with Tech Support getting it set up.

I wanted to try my Martel Mic out but didn't have the adapter.  I had to run to 2 different Radio Shacks yesterday to try to find it.  I hooked it up last night and am wondering what people have their settings on.  Also,  do you do the loop back?

It has that new car feel to it, but it's still an adjustment getting the tension and depth to my comfort level and having things come out right.  I am waiting for a new laptop, which I ordered seems like weeks ago, to show up so I can actually take it out on a job.  The writer is so much lighter than my Stentura 8000LX.  I actually thought the keyboard was smaller on the Impression but I measured both writers and they're the same.  The width of the Stentura shell is wider, I believe. 

At any rate, I've done a complete overhaul of everything and am looking forward to my maiden voyage.  I figure there will probably be some frustration along the way, but I'm going to be real happy at having a much lighter load.

I don't want to turn this into a sales pitch, however, if any of you are thinking about a new writer, now might be the time.  ProCAT is offering $1200 off with a trade-in of any old writer.  So the Impression is now $4095 and it includes bluetooth and wide keys, if needed.

Caryn, that is controlled by your writer.  ProCAT writers allow you to suspend and reconnect without a problem.  Same with our new Impression writer.  The bluetooth will even go into an automatic hold if you go outside the distance of bluetooth.  You might want to pose this question to any Diamante users.

Thanks, Cathy re the dictionary backup. I got it figured out. I really appreciate your response though.

I'm on the latest version of ProCat -- 12.0.38.  I'm using a Diamante writer.  Need help with realtime.  In the middle of trial, hooked up to realtime, if I have to unhook my writer from my computer to go to sidebar, I can't come back and plug the writer into the computer and have the realtime pick up from where I left off.  I have to close the file, turn off the writer and start a new file.  With my old Stylus machine I could just unplug the writer, do what I had to do, come back, plug it back in and everything worked fine.  I can suspend realtime with a keyboard command on my writer, but when I need to restart it by giving it the same command, it won't restart.  Is anyone else having this problem?

Hey, Lisa.  I would go to archive wizard.  On the second screen, select backup personal dictionary.  Then follow the prompts.  You can then at the end set it to save to your desktop, jump drive (by using browse button), or burn to CD-write folder.

If you are getting an error message, I need to know how you are doing it and what the message says.

Silly question - I'm not sure I'm doing it right. What's the best way to make a backup copy of my dictionary?
