When recording a vocal or an instrumental section, you might want to record several different takes so that you can choose the one you like best. You might even want to record several takes to double a part or merge the best parts of each.Normally, to record each take you would have to arm a track, start recording, perform the take, and then stop recording. You can record multiple takes more easily using a feature called loop recording. Loop recording lets you start recording and record as many takes as you like, all in a single step.Music Creator loops between the loop start and loop end time, allowing you to record one take on each pass. Music Creator creates a clip for each take. You have three choices for where these clips are stored:
When you finish recording, you can use the Edit > Undo command or CTRL+Z to erase all your takes in a single step.
3. Click the Loop On/Off button in the Control Bar to enable looping.Figure 59. The Record section
6. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box, and set the Now time to the point in the project where you want to start recording.
