I’m doing an overdub project and had a question regarding how to specifically tell Audacity what place and track to start recording. Let’s say I want to start recording at 1:50 specifically in Track 2. (Track 2 has material in it, but only earlier in the project. It’s empty at 1:50.) I put the cursor at 1:50, but when when I do “Shift/Record,” it starts at the right place, but on a newly generated track. I don’t want it on a new track, I want it on Track 2. How do I tell Audacity exactly which track to record on? Thanks!
If you are using the current version of Audacity (2.4.1) with standard default settings, just do “Record” rather than “Shift + Record”.
