    pre-roll record

    As i said way earlier in the thread, it has a clunky workaround. Just want a simplified version (which technically has an added function)

    This is EXACTLY it. This would simply things a lot for many and it seems easy to implement

    how about you CTFO bro, don't fly off the handle at me because you don't understand things. other people here understood me perfectly well, cakewalk does not offer this function. you have to do a workaround, and it could be so much better with this addition. how about you quit visiting this thread and let those who get it chime in

    what is it you are doing here? it looks to me you are hitting record over and over again while its playing back. that is kind of hard for me to do with my hands on a guitar. and no, the options in the metronome tab are count in beats/measures... as in just the metronome clicking before the start of record. what i want is a playback of all the tracks by a user defined bar/beat before the record point... NOT just the metronome, and also not having to touch the keyboard so i can be actually playing when it happens

    pre-roll record

    im requesting the playhead go back a preset number of beats or bars before the recording actually starts. so for example, if you set "2 measures" in the option menu for preroll, it would play 2 bars before where the playhead is located, and start recording once it reaches the playhead. that way, you can play along to the actual tracks before it starts recording. its exactly the same as if someone was punching you in manually, usually setting the playtime a few bars beforehand so you can smoothly punch in. this is a much more natural way of punching, and you don't have to mess with region markers in this case. plenty of people here understand what the option is and why it's useful. and no, it's not a timing issue. it's just a smoother and more inspiring punch in, without having to worry where your punch OUT point is because there isn't one. it's ok if you don't understand it, i'm not completely sure i can explain it in any other way at this point. look at "preroll" in reaper/cubase/studio one or study the one that is apparently in logicpro. that option is what im looking for here. it is funny to me how some people here are so against new functionality... i'm not asking for a visual change, or anything else trivial. this is a big improvement with little effort

    i would consider it a HUGE improvement. any time i don't have to use a workaround to get the desired action, that is a time savings. and as you pointed out with the logic example, this is a standard feature on many DAWs now. it hugely speeds up recording when you are the one engineering and tracking alone. as far as "what's the point", it's much easier to get a good take if you play along to the track a few beats/bars before recording starts... and without preroll record, you have to set region points (one being many many measures back depending on the length of the section being recorded and then click back with the mouse before the region to get this type of behavior. with the option baked in, you only need to set the bars/beats in the menu and hit R wherever the playhead is located. so much easier

    bumping this because it's a good request
  8. Windows 10 support doesn't end til 2025... Why not just stay on 10 a few more years? Delay the worry

    It is absolutely a huge workflow improvement. Tracking parts more specifically, or writing on the fly while recording etc
  10. Eezye

    pre-roll record

    It's a workflow improvement. I used to use cubase in the past and it has a similar option, and i saw the option in studio one as well. You don't have to set markers or any of that, with the option selected, you get pre-roll right from the playhead. Just makes tracking faster if you are recording part by part or completely flub a take. There's a reason it's an option in other DAWs, it's quite useful

    pre-roll record

    That is the beauty of this addition, it would be an option you could select. Don't want it? Don't use it. I want it, as well as a few others

    Keep in mind that a pre roll record punch isn't just for punching in and out where you made a mistake, it allows you to play along to the track before recording starts in order to get a more seemless transition between wave regions and not have to trim/tidy up the connect points as much. Playing along a few bars and recording into the next part makes for a much more natural take. Not having to worry about where the punch out of a region is is immensely helpful, and having the pre roll start by a user defined amount would allow a fast, expected workflow during the songwriting/tracking stage. This is the only real thing i currently think is missing from cakewalk that i would use a LOT.

    It's annoying if you dont want it to punch out and want it to keep recording. It'd be better to not have to rely on workarounds. They could add the option to the metronome page in preferences, or recording in audio etc. This would not be a very hard option to add i would think, and i believe a lot of folks would use it. What is the point of feature requests if folks just dismiss them? This would be a useful feature to add
  14. Eezye

    pre-roll record

    Or, improve workflow in cakewalk by adding the option. This is what feature requests are for. Why are you being such a hardass about this?

    pre-roll record

    in order to punch in cakewalk, you have to define a punch out point too. you can work around it by setting the punch out time waaay ahead in the project, but it would be easier to include a pre roll. you are not understanding my request... it's basically an option to have a set number of beats or bars play before the recording starts and NOT have a specified punch OUT point. i want it to punch IN and not out, ie, just punch and keep recording indefinitely. here is an example of what I'm referring to, as I am not sure how to make it any clearer in text
