Playhead freezes when pressing record button?

If I am already playing in my project and hit record, a region will start being recorded as normal. However, if the playhead is paused and I press record, the record button is activated as red but doesn’t actually start playing to record anything.


Probably Precount is enabled. In the Transport Panel on the side of Metronome/Click, extend the Metronome area. The 2nd button is Precount.

Precount was enabled. However, even after disabling it, the record is still frozen unless I press spacebar, where it then starts playing/recording instantly. Any other thoughts?

Is the External Sync disabled?

Fixed it!

It was enabled. I disabled it, then went to “Project Synchronization Setup” and switched from “VST System Link” to “MIDI Timecode.” Thank you.
