Hi - I’m enjoying the separate loops for playback (the blue bar at the top) from Punch in/out (the red triangles and red bar at the top).
I recently realized there was a keystroke for setting the Punch In/Out locations on the fly very quickly (e.g., while playing through the project). So, for example, I start playback from the left of where I know the Punch In point will be, and when the playback cursor gets there, I hit “CTRL-ALT Num 1”. The project keeps playing, and when the cursor gets to the Punch Out point I hit “CTRL-ALT Num 2”. (I don’t know if those are default ones, or if I entered those myself).
It’s so quick and sweet this way - I used to have to do a long multistep process instead: stop playback at the punch in, manually copy the cursor position from the transport bar and manually copy it into the Punch In field … then repeat for the Punch Out.
So nice this way! Hope this helps somebody down the road …
(And of course there are keystrokes for setting the Locator Beginning/End positions, I think the default ones might be CTRL Num 1/CTRL Num 2).
