How to make Audacity record in loop

I know how to loop PLAY (with shift+space after defining a region), but i can’t find how to record while looping the region.

Precisely: I want to record multiple versions of the same vocal line in a single session, without declaring a new navyarmyccutrack everytime.

Is it even possible? If not I might change software.

Audacity can’t record in a loop, though you can of course record the same thing over and over on one track.

How many times will you be recording over the loop ?

You can always just duplicate the audio manually in Audacity. This is fairly easy to do:

For example, if your entire track consists of the audio you wish to loop:

  1. Use Ctrl-A to select All audio (here, were planning to loop all audio).
  2. Click the Skip-to-End, then Ctrl-V to copy the original audio.
  3. Repeat step 2 a total of 7 times.
  4. Use mix and render to remove split marks.
  5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 a couple of times.

If you start out with 1 second of audio to loop, one pass will give you 8 seconds, two passes will give you 64 seconds (about a minute). Three passes will give you 8 minutes, and Four passes will give you an hour.

I hope this helps. :smiley:
