Recording overview

In Logic Pro, you can make use of several workflow features when recording voices, acoustic instruments, and software instruments—including take recording, multitrack recording, and replace recording. You can also punch in and out of audio recordings to overwrite a portion of a previously recorded track.

You can use step input recording techniques, which allow you to insert MIDI notes when not in a real-time recording mode. And there are several advanced recording techniques available that will help speed up your workflow.

When it comes to audio take recording—recording multiple audio performances over the same section of a project—you can comp your audio recordings. This process involves selecting the best parts from the different performances and piecing them together into a single, master composite take.

Note: If Fade Out is turned on, it will be temporarily disabled while recording, so that you can hear what you record.
