Record to multiple audio tracks
You can record to more than one audio track at a time, allowing you to record several instruments at once—placing each instrument on a separate track, for example.
Record to multiple audio tracks simultaneously
Do one of the following:
Choose Record > Overlapping Audio Recordings > Cycle Mode On > Create Tracks and Mute.
Choose File > Project Settings > Recording, then choose Cycle > Create Tracks and Mute from the Overlapping Audio Recordings pop-up menu.
Control-click the Record button in the control bar, choose Recording Settings from the shortcut menu, then choose Cycle > Create Tracks and Mute from the Overlapping Audio Recordings pop-up menu.
Set the instrument or microphone input source for each track you want to record to.
Click the Record Enable button in the track header of each track you want to record to.
Move the playhead to the point in the ruler where you want to start recording.
Logic Pro includes a metronome, which plays a steady beat to help you play in time while recording. You can turn this on or off using the Metronome button in the control bar.
Click the Count-in button in the control bar to have the metronome play a predefined count-in before recording starts.
Note: For the initial setup, choose Record > Count-in, then choose a measure.
Click the Record button in the control bar (or press R) to start recording.
Start singing or play your instrument.
A new audio region appears on each of the record-enabled tracks.
Click the Stop button in the control bar (or press the Space bar) to stop recording.
