Logic 9 Merge with selected regions and Merge only in cycle record

    I was checking out the 'Merge with selected regions' and Merge only in cycle record' features from the Settings > Record (midi section).

    Do they do the same thing?

    If I choose 'Merge with selected regions' and set a cycle of say 1 or 2 bars and press record, record some chords, then once its gone round, record say a melody. They both merge together.

    I did the the same thing with 'Merge only in cycle record' and got the same result.

    I also noticed that if I chose 'Merge only in cycle record' and record 2 bars without the cycle on, then press stop and press record again, whatever I play over those two bars is merged with what I played before, even though I haven't activated cycle mode?

    Has anybody found this?

    I believe the merge with selected regions setting is independent of cycle mode. ie: it functions without cycle on. If you are recording and have a region selected in the track at the same time position, it will get merged. If not selected, a new region will be created. Think of it like an "overdub" mode, where you can keep adding to the region, versus creating separate one.

    Thanks Eli, I see what your saying, makes sense as I forgot the meaning of the word 'selected'!

    I just noted that, merge only in cycle record will only merge if its a continuous cycle (and you go round again), not if you press stop and then press record again, it will create a new region. Bet you knew that, I'm just trying things out.

    I didn't specifically know that, I don't think I've tried that exact sequence of actions. But it does kind of make sense;)
