Punching in refers to the act of recording an over dub in a specific section of the track, as suppose to recording an entire track from the beginning to the end of the song. The punch in point is where the recording over dub begins and the punch out point is where it ends. I'll go ahead and solo out a section of the guitar track that needs to be punched, measures 13 to 17. I'll place the play head at measure 13 and take a listen. (MUSIC) And right there around measure 15, you can hear a low e that creeps into the chord changes.
One more time. (MUSIC) So, I'll unsolo the guitar track and define, using my Range tool, measures 13 to 17. I'll hit the i key, which then, turns on my Auto Punch tool, right here at the bottom of the transport. And I'll place the play head a couple of bars before measure 13, so that Dave has room to prepare for the punch in point. I hit Record, and you'll see that when we get to measure 13, the recording will automatically take place and it will stop at measure 17.
(MUSIC) Let's take a listen back. Starting at measure 11 again. (MUSIC) Excellent. That cleaned up the mistake. Everyone makes mistakes during the recording process.
And Studio One makes it very easy to punch in and correct your recording mistakes when necessary.
