Recording Audio in the Mixer

You can record audio in the Mixer in a similar way to recording audio in the Timeline. You can record a single take or record multiple takes.

To record audio in the Mixer, you follow the procedures described in Recording Audio in the Timeline, with the following differences.

Depending on the layout you are using, the playhead may not be visible as you record in the Mixer. In this case, you can set the playhead using the transport controls or the Playhead Location value slider. If you want to record multiple takes using a cycle region, you may need to set the cycle region in the Timeline before you start recording in the Mixer.
