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.SONAR loops between the loop start and loop end time, allowing you to record one take on each pass. SONAR creates a clip for each take. You have three choices for where these clips are stored:
All clips can be recorded in Sound on Sound mode and stored in a single track, where they are stacked on top of one another. You can use Take lanes to display overlapping clips in separate lanes.
All clips can be recorded in Overwrite mode in a single track, where each take is successively muted except the last one.
Each clip can be recorded to a different track. SONAR automatically places each take into a new, empty track. No existing tracks are changed in any way.When you finish recording, you can use the Edit > Undo command or CTRL+Z to erase all your takes in a single step.Figure 68. The Record section
5. If you use single track and Sound on Sound with Track Lanes enabled, selecting the Create New Lane on Overlap check box will create another Take lane if your new clip overlaps an existing clip.
6. If you stack all takes in a single track, you can audition them later by using the Expand/collapse Take Lanes button in the bottom left corner of the Track pane (each take will have its own Mute and Solo buttons).
7. 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.
9. Play or perform the material you want to record. At the end of the loop, SONAR will return to the start of the loop and you can record the next take.
