Loop-Recording Audio

You can use Pro Tools’ Loop Record mode to lay down successive non-destructive takes over the same section of a track. This is a good way to maintain inspiration and focus. For example, it can help a vocalist maintain concentration and stay in the flow of the music. Or, a guitar player may want to loop-record while developing a part. You can listen back later and select the best performance.

To loop-record audio:

1.
Enable Loop Record Mode by selecting Operations > Loop Record (Figure 7.23).

Figure 7.23. Select Operations > Loop Record.


The Record button displays a loop symbol (Figure 7.24).

Record-enable the track.

3.
Select a recording range in the track’s playlist (Figure 7.25).

4.
Set a pre-roll time, if desired.

5.
Click Record in the Transport window.

6.
When you’re ready to record, click Play.

When the start point is reached, Pro Tools begins recording. When the end point is reached, the track loops back to the start point and continues recording.

7.
When you’ve finished recording, click Stop.

The recorded takes appear in the Audio Regions list numbered sequentially.

The most recently recorded take remains visible in the audio track.
