Time Sensitive!!How to record TestGenerator Instert

I have insterted the plug ins testgenerator, distortion, and rotary on both an audio and an instrument track and i can’t seem to figure out how to just record the signal that is automatically coming out. The track does not require any kind of midi triggering since the test generator just creates the noise, when I hit record, even when I try to send it to a group channel, I’m not able to record, what should I do?

Thank you!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I FIGURE IT OUT!! You need to do 4 things:

  1. Create an instrument track and insert your testgenerator and whatever other plug ins you want
  2. create a group channel
  3. make the output of the instrument track go to the group channel
    4.then create an audio track, and make the input for the audio track the channel

and Voila! you can just hit record on the audio channel.

You might also do your step 1 & then Render in Place.

I use Render in Place like raino suggests when I need to use the audio in the current project.

If I need to generate audio for a different project or application, I do your step 1, OP, then set the loop points to the length of audio I need, then I do File > Export > Audio Mixdown and select only the channel I need in the Channel Selection box before rendering to WAV.
