As an audio book narrator producer, I’m recording spoken vocal only with 9.5 Pro and using IC pro on an iPad to control the board recording. I’ve been unsuccessful getting the pre-roll to activate and let me hear what’s recorded until the punch-in moment and then to record at that spot. I’ve set-up as instructed in the manual, but I can’t find videos for 9.5 to explain how to engage the pre-roll pre-set and actually begin recording where the Left range selector is set. I’m not punching out to re-record a segment. Once I punch in, I continue record until I make an error. Then stop. Back up to hear where to punch in. Set range selector. Then I want to click a key to automatically move back to pre-set pre-roll, play, and automatically punch-in to begin record from selected spot forward. I don’t find any instructions that explain how this last step is activated using IC Pro to remote control the board (play pre-roll, switch monitor button from play to record mode, punch record to begin record after pre-roll playback).
Another audiobook narrator has helped search and found that right-clicking on the punch in button on the Transport, opens a menu in which I can select to activate pre-roll. That expands the Transport to include the Pre-roll button which when “lit” (selected) expands the window in which to set the length of the pre-roll. Recording remotely from the booth today, I discovered the pre-roll operates in play back as well as in record mode.
The problem now is: how do I hear the playback in my headset, and then get the board to switch so I can hear the record audio in my headset? Can the board be set-up to make an automatic switch from “monitor on” to “monitor off” when record punches in without me punching the button on the transport since at that moment I have to be reading the script?
