I am currently attempting to cycle in Cubase 11 while recording instruments on different tracks (essentially a looped performance). I am using a combination of Instrument tracks and Audio tracks. When I initially start recording for the first time, Instrument tracks work as intended. Once the 8 bar loop has finished and starts from the beginning, the Instrument track will continue to record while playing back what I have just recorded. However, this is not the case of Audio tracks:
The issue is that I need Audio tracks to have the “Monitor” button turned on while recording (so I can hear myself), however as soon as the loop starts from the beginning again, I am unable to hear what I have just recorded until I turn off the monitor button. This behaviour is to be expected, but it ruins the musical flow in the context of a looped performance.
I just wondered if there is something I can do to get around this, or if there is something that I’m missing.
