Pre-Roll and Post-Roll

You can activate pre-roll and post-roll with the corresponding buttons in the Pre-roll & Post-roll section on the Transport panel or by selecting Transport > Pre-roll & Post-roll > Use Pre-roll/Use Post-roll.

  • By setting a pre-roll value you instruct Cubase to roll back a short section whenever playback is activated.

  • By setting a post-roll value you instruct Cubase to play back a short section after automatic punch out before stopping.


    This only works if Punch Out is activated on the Transport panel, and if Stop after Automatic Punch Out is activated in the Preferences dialog (Record page).
