I recently moved back to Cubase. I have a question RE: recording and the tape machine style option.
I think tape machine is the best option for quicker punch ins, especially when working with a singer.
Trouble is, when I write a song, I sometimes need to jam along with the track, trying out guitar riffs, etc.
Of course, the tape machine style option will disable monitoring on the track I’m using and I find that going back in and clicking on the speaker button every time is a massive disruption to my flow.
How do you do it? In a nutshell I need to jam along to my backing track using my guitar through my VST amps, etc. Ideally the track should be ready to record (because sometimes losing a good idea might be a matter of a couple extra clicks), but with a Tape Machine Style workflow, so if something is already recorded on the track (let’s say, previous song section or something) I can still hear it
