Sorry if this is another ‘noob’ question. I have 2 separate recording rooms away from the DAW. They’re wired for MIDI and audio and ethernet.
When I’m recording myself, what I do is…
Start the pre-roll @ the DAW 16 bars ahead
Run to the tracking room, grab the cans and hope I got there in time to start punching in.
Is there a cheap/simple ‘start/stop’ button I can add for punching in—either wireless or some add-on to MIDI?
Sadly, I have neither iPad or smartphone—but I’d consider getting -something- like an iPOD if there was a reliable ‘app’ for this… But I can’t see spending $500 just to start/stop.
Or maybe there’s a clever way to add a footswitch to a MIDI controller to start/stop recording? (Like if I hit C0 it starts recording and D0 stops?)
