i need to know how to continue recording on the same track if a person messes up and quits. I know you can put the line after the previous, and continue recording, but i need to play back a few seconds before it starts recording where we left off so the previous material isnt written over. Is it something to do with cues?

Dec 03, 2003 12:17 pm Not sure specifically, since I don't use it, but in the manual or the online help search for "punch in" and "punch out".
Dec 03, 2003 12:22 pm i know how to punh in, it is just that i can only select a certain area to punh in on. i will mess with it though. thanks
Dec 03, 2003 12:26 pm ok, i think i have figured it out, it is just that when i punch in vocals, there is like a jerk or slight pause from where the old track ends and the punched in part starts. is there a setting i can change on this?
Dec 03, 2003 02:19 pm You can continue recording from any where in the track just by placing the cursor where you wish to begin, of course you need a blank area to start in if your not using the punch in feature.

For punching in unless your PC is a bit slow, or your sound card has too much latency, there should be no noticeble pause. You can help the matter by playing back only the track(s) you really need and either Locking or removing the effects on any of the tracks your playing, while you complete the track your recording. Also try starting the highlighting in an area in between beats. If you haven't already figured it out, you can put the cursor at any point in the track and begin playing from there, and recording will automatically start when it reaches the highlighted part.
You can also try increasing the record buffers in the device options, but I doubt that will help you much.

i know how to keep recording from the point i left off, but i need to do it so that it play a few seconds of audio already recorded on the same track before the recording starts at where i left off. i can do this by using another track, but that is kinda unethical. Let me know if there is a way to do this without going to another track.
Dec 04, 2003 09:53 am Click on the Punch In button in the toolbar, then just highlight the area you want to punch in at, then place the cursor at a point before that on the track (click somewhere before the highlighted area), hit record, start playing, and when the highlighted area is reached it will start recording and stop when the highlighted area is over.

Dec 04, 2003 11:30 am Yes, not putting the cursor before the place you start recording at would make punching in and out rediculously hard! That's the whole point of punch in/punch out. In most software apps you don't even need to use punch in, though. Just record on top of what you did before (Make sure that you are recording sound on sound rather than overwrite) and then move the ends of the tracks so they fit together or crossfade. that gives you a lot more flexability. Or you could just record on another track, edit it to fit, and then drag it to the other track. This is the beauty of digital computer recording! You can do whatever you want, however you want.
Dec 04, 2003 02:58 pm Yep I use that more than punch in. In CEP/AA it's Allow Multiple Takes. Not exactly sound on sound recording but achieves the same effect when you combine the track/portion of track. If I remember right you can hear the previous take while your playing, so I guess it is the same thing actually. :)

Digital Recording Rocks, so much more you can do and much easier!
Dec 08, 2003 06:58 pm I stopped punching in when I stopped using tape as the recording medium
