Use a Recording Loop for Repeated Punching In

If you have a tricky part to record and you know it will take you a few tries to get it right, you can use the repeated punching (also called loop recording) function. During the repeated punching procedure, the recorder keeps repeating the section within the loop until you press the Stop key, so you can try recording your part as many times as you want without having to set up the punch in and out procedure again.

This procedure uses the same basic steps as the automatic punch in/out procedure, except that you also need to choose the section of the song that the recorder plays before and after the actual punch times (called the loop start and loop end points). For some systems, you can do this the following way:

  1. Locate the place where you want to start the loop on your recorder.

  2. Press the Locator button.

    This stores the location point you chose in Step 1.

  3. Locate the place where you want the loop to end.

  4. Press another Locator button to store this value.

  5. Press and hold the Loop button.

  6. While still holding the Loop button, press the Locator button that you used to store the loop start point (Step 2).

  7. While still holding the Loop button, press the Locator button that you used to store the loop end point (Step 4).

  8. Proceed as though you are doing automatic punch in/out recording.
