Logic 8 Like Quick Punch?

    Is there a way to have Logx8 while having a track record enabled to be recording all the time when in play and then hitting the record key command
    and the audio would be captured kinda like what Logx can do w/MIDI: capture after the fact as long as Logx is in play of course. I've been doing this w Logx 6 and DAE for 20 years. Sure has caught allot of, off the cuff magic not to mention practicing along w a seq and then capturing it saving the great moments.
    If it does it I really want to know. I thought I read it some where.
    Thanks

    Yes, you can do this. Enable the punch on the fly command (under the Audio menu) and then when the audio track is recorded enabled and playing, if you hit record it will punch in and capture everything that was played before the record command was invoked.

    The only thing is that it will only create the region from where you punched in at. To access what was played before that point, you need to drag the left corner of the region back to where you want it to start from.

    That's what I thought. So I tried that earlier and it didn't work. I'll give it another try and get back to ya

    This is one of those not so talked about features that is really useful.
    Just another point of interest though, is that there are certain audio editing in the Arrange related things, that are disabled when punch on the fly is active. Most notable being that you can't cut audio regions with the scissor tool when in play mode, like you can otherwise.

    Hey, it just worked. And it doesn't even skip when I hit record!!
    The last thing I did before this worked was to change the I/O Buffer size to 128 from 256. Do you think that was the problem?

    PS Eli...... by the way you are so eloquent and I'm not

    Yeh I know from Logx 6 when punch on the fly is active you can't cut audio regions with the scissor tool when in play mode, I can deal w that.
    Thanks so much.
    I'm gonna get this and rock like nobody's business.....better than I do now in 6 which everybody thinks is too amazing including me.

    Latency: I guess I should start another thread, but by changing the I/O Buffer size , did I create less latency. At 256, when playing real bass I felt some delay?....I think??
    Of course I'm spoiled and never had to expirence latency w Logx 6 and DAE TDM 24 Plus
    and that was one of the main reasons I had to have it in 1999. I heard I should not have any latency with my Apogees yadaya

    Hi hurty,

    Me eloquent!! Thanks :)

    Yes, with Punch On The Fly, the punching in is immediate - no hesitation or hiccup. And that has nothing to do with the buffer setting. It has to do with Punch On The Fly mode being active.

    You'll obviously get less overall latency at a buffer setting of 128 instead of 256. But if you're having trouble running your session at 128 and recording, try using the low latency monitoring mode. What it does is temporally disable any plugins either on the recording channel strip, or in it's output path, while recording. So, if you don't mind recording dry, this could be a good alternative for you. Keep your session at 256, but benefit from lower latency on the record enabled tracks when recording.

    PS: the lowest latency I ever had on any of my systems was in the mid-late 90's with my Digidesign AudioMedia ll Nubus card on a PowerMac 7100.

    If you're into old gear, can I interest you in a Samplecell ll PCI card?? (I'm serious!)

    Very funny ...I must really sound like a chump. Ya know I have all that stuff because I needed it to get at 20 year old sessions. They even saved a few other producers and major studios butts. Just like my 933 MAc.... won't sell it probably ever! Need to get at those scuz buckets (as in SCSI) and Logic 5,4,3,2,1 sessions. :D
    Anyway I was rambling and will try contain in the future.
