Chapter 4. Recording Audio > Recording in Stacked Mode

Recording in Stacked Mode

New to Cubase SX 2 is stacked recording, which is a little like cycle recording on steroids. The most common use for cycle recording is to record a number of takes over a short loop and then pick the best take or pieces of multiple takes for the final version. You do this by opening the cycle-recorded audio part in the Audio Part editor. Stacked recording does something quite similar, but stacks each take vertically in the track, directly in the Project window. Both methods are described here and in Chapter 8, “Basic Audio Editing.”

To record a track in Stacked mode

1.
Set the left and right locators just as you would for cycle recording and click both the Punch-In and Punch-Out buttons on the Transport bar. Record-enable the track or tracks you want to record.

2.
Click the Cycle button if it is not already selected.

3.
At the lower left of the Transport bar, click the pop-up menu for the Cycle record mode and select Stacked (Figure 4.40).

Figure 4.40. Use this menu to select Stacked mode when recording.


4.
Start playback before the punch-in point, and record a few takes over the selected loop.

5.
When you're done recording, click Stop on the Transport bar or press the spacebar on your computer keyboard.

Each take will be displayed on the track you just recorded (Figure 4.41).

Figure 4.41. The three takes recorded in Stacked mode are all visible on the track.
