Possible to disable record when no tracks are armed?

Maybe my memory is failing me… I thought in Cubase 11, if I hit record with no tracks armed, that Cubase would tell me that no tracks are armed for recording. In the past few days, there have been a few times when I’ve been switching between projects and record something without realizing that record isn’t armed (yes, I know I should check for the waveform being drawn but I don’t always). Is there a way to set Cubase 12 so it won’t record unless a track is armed? And did something change from version 11 or am I just losing my mind? :slight_smile:

I’m not aware of this kind of setup.

But are you sure no track was armet? Wasn’t it Armet in the active project, but the active project window was below other project’s window (inactive project)?

There’s no other project open. Just one.

I tested it in Cubase 11 and the behavior is the same - it doesn’t give a warning. I thought at a certain point that Cubase told you if no track was armed for recording, but maybe not.
