RecordingPreparing to record ► Recording modes

Any material you record is stored in a new clip. If you record into several tracks at once, one clip is created in each track. If you record into a track that already contains clips, you can choose one of three recording modes to determine what happens to those clips. When you save your project, you also save whatever recording mode you choose together with that project:
Note: When loop recording, you will not be able to hear the prior loop passes until you stop recording. This is because takes are only committed after recording is stopped.
Recording only takes place between the punch-in and punch-out times. You can use Auto Punch in either Comping, Overwrite, or Sound on Sound mode.
