Dialog box reference ► Step Record dialog

Press SHIFT+R to open the Step Record dialog box. Step recording lets you specify step size and note duration so you can record difficult passages a step at a time. Step Record always uses the Sound on Sound (blend) record mode, regardless of the current record mode.
The Step Record dialog box has an extra set of controls called Advanced mode that only appear when you click the Adv. button. The Step Record dialog box has the following fields:
