I really hope that I am not reposting something, not sure how to search for a topic to see if it’s posted.
I just switched from Pro Tools to Cubase to take advantage of VST Expression and all the awesome MIDI capabilities, but I am having a REALLY hard time understanding Cycle record.
In Pro Tools, they have what called a new playlist, meaning that I can record a part, then just add a new playlist and record another take. I can do it anywhere in the project and I can do it with both Audio and Midi tracks.
I can’t seem to figure out how to do it in Cubase. All I want is to be able to record a new take and have it keep all my takes on lanes… So I set my transport controls to
MIDI record Mode: Replace
MIDI Cycle record Mode: Stacked
Now, does that mean that as soon as I want to add another take, I have to set my locators and determine where I want to punch in and out and then turn on cycle mode?!? Just to record a new take?
What if I want to be more free and just record a new take somewhere else?
So I tried setting my locators to the whole project and then I realized that it wouldn’t make a new take unless it completed the cycle.
Also, if I record 3 lanes in cycle record, and then I want to try 3 more, it deletes the previous 3 takes…
Bottom line is, I need to be able to record new takes, I won’t use the stacked with no mute or anything like that, its just to save performances.
How do I simply record new takes and hopefully, without cycle record on. I want to just record a new take, while the previous take gets bump to a lane and prevents me from hearing it.
Thanks very much!!!
