It’s late and my wrestling with Cubase has hit a new low tonight. I’m trying to do the following:
- Record a take to a click - let’s call it scratch vocals and guitar
- I screw up and want to rewind a little and start recording where I left off by just playing along with my prior take
Sonar/Cakewalk has always allowed this. I’m pretty sure I’ve done this 100 times in Ableton too.
Is this possible in Cubase?
- I don’t want to mess with setting punch in/out points. This is terrible for a few reasons I won’t get into.
- I don’t want to use my foot to hit record
- I don’t want to have to manage multiple tracks just to bounce back and forth between bad takes
This seems like something a first-generation DAW should support. Am I missing something obvious? It’s really frustrated me. The documentation only mentions the word “overdub” with regard to MIDI (minor oversight?!?).
PS… This old forum software Steinberg uses is laughable. No Markdown support? Just adds to more of my frustration! Creating a bulleted list should be easy. It’s not. They should take some of the money they have siphoned from me and pay a high schooler to upgrade it.
PPS… Okay… that might have been a little harsh, but seriously. For paid software… that needs a silly dongle, I expect MORE.
