Chapter 5. Recording MIDI > Recording MIDI in Cycle Mode

Recording MIDI in Cycle Mode

Just like audio, MIDI can be recorded while a specific section of a project is looping. The Cubase term for this loop-style recording is cycle recording. Setting up the program to cycle record MIDI is much like setting up to cycle record audio, though there are some extra considerations for MIDI cycle recording, discussed later in this chapter.

To cycle record MIDI

1.
Set the left and right locators to select the section that you want to cycle (Figure 5.21).

Figure 5.21. The left and right locators set for a two-bar cycle.


2.
On the Transport bar, click to turn on Cycle mode and also click to make the Punch-In button active (Figure 5.22).

Figure 5.22. Cycle recording is active, and the left locator is set to punch in recording.


3.
Move the cursor to a point before where you want the loop to start; then start playback.

When Cubase reaches the point where it will loop, recording will automatically be punched in, and playback/recording will continue indefinitely (Figure 5.23).

Figure 5.23. The Rhodes track is recording in Cycle mode.


4.
When you're done recording, click Stop on the Transport bar to stop playback.
