What happened to Append Record?

Post by JackN » Sun Dec 31, 2017 5:29 pm

Just installed 2.2.1 and I'm wondering where "Append Record" went to. Did it get moved to somewhere and I haven't found it yet? Or is there a different way of doing that now? TIA.

Previously "Record" would automatically record to a new track, and "Append Record" required the Shift key ("Shift + R" or "Shift + Click the Record button").
That has been reversed (by default) in the current version, so "Record" will automatically record to the same track, and "Shift" is required to record to a new track.

The old behaviour is available as an option in "Preferences > Recording" (useful if most of your work is overdubbing).
