to monitor the incoming audio, please don’t confuse yourself at this early stage by using a Thru machine.
Instead, just use the Mix button and set Direct level (“Dir”) for the AB and CD inputs to about the level of 100 or so.
there are two Dir level settings in the mix screen, one below the other, the top is for AB inputs, the lower is for CD inputs. The “Gain” setting next to both is neutral when it is zero, neither increasing nor decreasing the audio input strength for the AB or CD input.
then go set Track 1 to be a Flex machine, and rather than set it to Slot 1, set it to Recording Slot 1. Doubleclick in the T1 Track 1 button and actually scroll upwards so that it is set to Recording Slot 1.
Then it’s just simply a matter of ensuring everything is playing, then a double keypress of Function and Rec1 to access Recording Screen.
Hint: this Recording Screen allows settings to be made for recordings-about-to-be-made, and in fact also allows a recording to be made by setting a Trig. If this Trig is then not removed after the recording is Trigged, it will keep on doing it, even if the screen is closed, so that isn’t necessarily desirable.
Not only but also, whatever Track button is active, that is what the Recording Screen is working with. Tap a different Track button whilst the Screen is open? The Recording Screen and Trig scenario is then working for that track selected.
Set the InAB to A/B i guess, set the RLen to “16” for one bar.
then set one single temporary trig whilst in this screen on Trig 1.
when the playback passes over this, recording will begin. so take the Trig off after the recording is triggered.
after the bar or so has elapsed, the recording should safely be available in Recording Slot 1.
to listen to it, close the Recording Screen by pressing No.
then set a regular Trig on Trig 1 of Track 1 (that has already been set to playback anything from Recording Slot 1 by your good self five minutes ago).
Enjoy and profit …
