Activating Recording Automatically

Cubase can automatically switch from playback to recording at a given position. This is useful if you must replace a section of a recording and want to listen to what is already recorded up to the recording start position.


  1. Set the left locator to the position where you want to start recording.
  2. Activate Punch In on the Transport panel.
  3. Activate playback from any position before the left locator.


When the project cursor reaches the left locator, recording is automatically activated.
