I’m trying to understand punch recording modes. I suspect this is clearly explained in the manual, but I cannot find it. Let’s say I have a recording, but measures 2 and 3 have a mistake. I’d like to go over these two measures, re-recording them as I go. But I would get a better result if I could hear the context in measure 1, just before the measures I’m replacing. Since my re-recording may have mistakes as well, I’d like to loop this process. I think I’ve seen this in some other DAW, maybe Logic?
It seems natural to have a loop enclosing a punch range. But that doesn’t seem to work in Ardour 7.4.0, at least. The section on Punch Recording Modes is quite sparse, so I’m not sure what is meant here.
Does it work to put the erring measures in another track, a duplicate of the original, loop everything, intro and outro context as needed in the original track and the replaced stuff moved to the new track. That seems like it might work, though I haven’t tried it. Seems cumbersome.
Thanks, and I apologize if I’ve wasted your time asking an obvious question.
