Looks like programmerese to me - the "print" command doesn't always send data to a printer (could be the screen, etc.).

I'd use "print".
I'd also delete "currently"
Plus, I have a problem with "print... to the recorder"
If it prints, why is it called a 'recorder' and not a 'printer'?
Or is nothing actually being printed? Does the action *send* or *output* content to the recorder?

Is it necessary to write "print out"? Or, is "print" sufficient.
