Metronome Precount only in Control Room?


I just setup Contol Room for the first time ever so that I could put some monitoring plugins, NX Headphone software in there instead of on the master buss. I realised soon afterwards that my metronome had gone silent and that you have to enable it in Contol Room instead which I did.

My question is…does the Contol Room metronome only play continuously during recording? I only like to use the Cubase metronome just as a precount then play along to VST Drums after the count in. Maybe that’s a bit weird but it’s just how my brain works.

Sorry if someone has already asked this before. I couldn’t find the answer.
