I’m exploring setting up a punch and roll workflow in Ardour. It seems straightforward enough to do, but I was curious if there’s a pre-record capability for the punch in?
In case it’s not obvious what I mean, if I am narrating an audio book and make a mistake, it’s simple enough to set a punch range at the point where the mistake begins, as well as set a pre-roll playback to help me ensure my corrected version matches the cadence and tone of what I’ve just been recording. However, if I start a bit early in the correction, I may cut off a breath or, worse yet, clip the first word a bit. With one second (or even less) of “pre-record” before punch in, I will have enough additional audio before the start of the punch in to shift the correction further away and maintain the continuity of the sound.
