Yet 50 (!) years I am involved in audio recording (3-head recorders as Studer, Revox and Tascam - Belgium). We used daily more than 100 times the ‘punch & roll’ technique by recording ‘dry’ voices (radio, soundscapes, voice overs…). It is indeed a very productive tool, missing in Audacity. So now I have to do voice recordings with another program and import the tracks in Audacity for further editing. I would be a essential improvement for this yet very good and intelligent program….

I also began my recording career on reel to reel tape. Hallelujah for non-destructive editing.and multiple takes that don't wipe out what was previously recorded.

You can of course do pre-roll quite easily with Audacity. Just delete the bad bit of the previous take, then click o the track a couple of seconds before the good part ends, and start recording to a new track.
