How can I put previous beats in the beginning of the music ?

Hi Eduardo - do you mean that you need to record some audio before the start of the samples? Sometimes when I'm recording a song there's an up-beat before the start where a singer might start singing before everything starts - does that sound like your scenario? If that's the case, what I do is select everything and drag it one bar to the right - that way you've got an extra blank bar at the start to put the pre-first beat audio.

Hope that helps?

Hi James,

I want to put in the first bar, a precount with 4 side stick, to prepare myself to the beginning of the sample.
How I do that ?

I think there is an option in settings to specify how many precount clicks happen before recording starts - I think the default is 4 - would that help?

If you want to include the side stick clicks in your recording, you could shift everything along by one bar and record them on the first bar? You could then remove them later if you didn't want them in the final mix?

(I'm afraid I don't have my laptop near me to give you specifics about the setting - sorry)
