Overdubbing yeah. I think it’s the Shift and R thing you mention. But that doesn’t seem to work if I create the tracks beforehand (generate tracks before recording)
I wanted to have a few blank tracks to then record different parts and record and select the best take from each so I created lots of blank separate tracks. When I do this it often records only at the end of the previous recorded track.
You can’t create a blank track and then “fill it up.”
Once you sort which of the keys starts a new track (mine is “R”), it will keep starting new tracks each time you Stop and hit that key. All the old tracks will play to your headphones unless you steer them with each MUTE and SOLO selection (on the left).
For example, I have a backing track.
R starts a new track and plays the backing track > Stop
R starts another new track and plays the first ones > Stop
R starts a third new track…etc.
There’s no blue waves in 2, 3, and 4 because I don’t have my microphone connected.
