Not sure if the new firmware solves this.
When you first turn on the player, and go to Voice recorder and try to record, the device hangs about 5-10 seconds, then you must press play to have it record.
If you listen to any other function, ie music, fm, etc, then go to the Voice recorder it does not do this.
Hopefully this is solved in the new or upcoming firmware.
Can someone test there clip+ with the new firmware to see if it does this?
I own a regular Clip also, and they fixed this issue in a firmware update.
