Appreciate the help.
I’m recording audio and yeah, I was looking at the wrong section. However, after going to Audio Record Mode, I’m still getting unexpected results.
Cycle History + Replace
Existing events or portions of events that are overlapped by a new recording are replaced by the new recording. However, if you record in cycle mode, all takes from the current cycle recording are kept.
Existing events or portions of events that are overlapped by a new recording are replaced by the last recorded take.
I’m doing cycle recording and don’t want to keep all the takes in a given cycle, just the last one. Cycle History + Replace does what I’d expect, it keeps all the takes.
Replace mode sounds like what I want, but here’s what happens in that mode.
- Cycle button on
- Press Record
- Play guitar for take one
- At end of cycle region, it loops back to the beginning of the region to start take two. The event for take one disappears, and the event starts growing for the recording of take two. So far, so good.
- Press Stop a couple of bars before the end of the region so that it doesn’t rewind to start take three. The event that was recorded for take two disappears, and is replaced by the event for take one.
I tried again, this time doing three takes. While recording it looks like it’s deleting the previous take each time but at the end of three takes, take one is what remains.
So everything behaves as expected in Replace mode, but once I stop it doesn’t keep the last take, it keeps the first one, which is exactly the opposite of what I’d expect.
The idea is to use Cycle mode to keep recording until I get a take I’m happy with, then stop and have that take (i.e. the last one) be the one that’s save, with all previous takes being deleted so I don’t have to go through and manually delete all the other unwanted lanes each time. It sounds like that’s what Replace describes, but the behavior doesn’t line up with that.
Is there another setting somewhere that I don’t have configured properly?
