Lesson 3. Working with Software Instrume... > Recording and Editing a New Region

Recording and Editing a New Region

Now it’s time to put everything you have learned so far together and record and edit a new region. This region will be very easy because it is only one long note that will last from the beginning of the 10th measure to the end of the 13th measure. To mix things up a bit, let’s use the onscreen keyboard for this short recording exercise.

1.
Select the Falling Star track header to select the track.

2.
Press Cmd-K to open the onscreen keyboard.

3.
Move the playhead to the beginning of the 9th measure in the Timeline.

4.
Click the Lower Octave arrow located at the left edge of the onscreen keyboard to lower it an octave.

C1 should now be the first key on your keyboard.

5.
Click-hold C1 to hear how it sounds. Release the mouse to release the note.

You will be holding this note during the recording for a total of four measures.

6.
Click the Record button and wait for the playhead to reach the beginning of the 10th measure. Then press the C1 key.

7.
Press the spacebar to stop recording when you reach the beginning of the 15th measure.

Note

If your recording is slightly longer or shorter, you can always fix it in the Track Editor.

8.
Double-click the Falling Star region you just recorded to open it in the Track Editor.

If you don’t see the Advanced section of the Track Editor, click the disclosure triangle at the top to reveal the Advanced Track Editor controls.

9.
Click-drag the single note event down one step to change the note to B0.

10.
Click the Track Editor button to close the Track Editor.

11.
Press Cmd-K to close the onscreen keyboard window.
