Separate record and play heads?

Hi all,

I’m looking for some audio record and playback software that has separate record and playback heads. The intention would to be in record mode with a series of tracks but able to move the playback head to another point and playback that piece while still recording at the end of the track.

Any chance?

If not, does anyone have any suggestions?



Not a feature and not planned.

1.) you can select the newly recorded regions and move them to another position after recording. But it’s not exactly what you want.
2.) use another jack capable player. Output of the second player connect to Ardour bus and when you want, move the second’s player’s head to another position. You can synchronize start of the second player with ardour via jack; it depends on capabilities of the player, if can be controlled via jack as slave.
